Winners announced: 6th April, 2010 GMT
Winner: Now I Just Have To Sit And Wait...

Winner: Steel Slivers

From wikipedia.org: "Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is stripped down to its most fundamental features".

Winner: Rain Dance
It's easy to form or find a repetition of a series of same objects perfectly lined up, but this topic is about found repetitions of not so obvious or formal-looking patterns found in urban environments. Please read the 'additional rules' for details and entry restrictions.
Winners announced: 16th February, 2010 GMT
Winner: Static Wheel
Like certain humans, certain bicycles too have a personality or interesting features/designs. Show one bicycle in such a way as to give it character or purpose. All "ages" (new/old/antique/etc) and "genders" (touring/racing/city/terrain/etc) are acceptable.
Winners announced: 9th February, 2010 GMT
