Well, it's aggravating as hell that when the two photos I submit both come up at the same time while I sat without a computer for almost a month. I think I submitted them in like October of last year or even earlier. I was looking forward to voting on the entries and seeing what everyone did with them. I was very surprised and happy that General Store was picked for a prize contest.
The bear was actually a bench in the local cemetery for a young man's grave site and when I went back to shoot in some evening light it had mysteriously disappeared. I can't imagine what something like that would cost, but that may be why it was gone. Foreclosed on? Who knows.
Congratulations to nat_g31, great job! And since I did make it back for the bear shot it's not so bad.
Keep on choppin folks.
