@Roycru: Which one do you apply for the challenge? All three of them are great :D

@AlexRamius the answer is none of the above.  

Since this Challenge does not require that the picture be from this week, my official entry in the Challenge is this picture from 1962 (which includes a train to counterbalance all the rather unfortunate "train wreck" remarks).

In the "Forewarned Is Forearmed" department, anyone voting for me is warned that if I win the Challenge, one of the requirements will be that the picture be taken out on the street (probably standing by something related to electricity).

I previously stopped entering the Challenges when the winner admitted that they had only worn the winning outfit in their house, and then changed into something else to go out into the world.

(Yes, I am wearing Polaroid clip-on sunglasses over my glasses, a tab collar shirt, a stick pin, and chukka boots.)

The "pictures taken out on the street" is a great idea.

But you need someone to take it for you, wich required social skills i do not master :p

Click on Edit Thread at the top and add a poll. Don't forget to make it multiple choice (if that's what you want) and put the right end date in as well.

[x] ...and this, folks, is why one doesn't wear an odd waistcoat.

Someone has been in a bad mood lately.

On the contrary, I'm feeling kind of vindicated.

Self congratulatory is the term I would have used.

Well now you're just bein' mean.

Let me try again to make my point without tripping over my own snark, and keeping in mind that English is not my first language: I think this shows that there's a causative link between the core concept and specific requirements for a challenge and the quantity and quality of the resulting entry pool.

Also, lest we all start throwing stones, I mean...
