May Photo Challenge

BFor the May photo challenge your theme is…

Something beginning with B

How you decide to interpret that theme is entirely up to you. Perhaps you’ll want to take it literally and enter a photo of a bus, bicycle or blossom. Maybe you’ll try something a little more subtle like a shot from a baseball, basketball or boxing match. Perhaps you’ll think out side the box and shoot a picture of honey (which starts with a bee, right?)

Once you have your photo you’ll then need to do three things…

1. Check your entry meets with the rules at the bottom of this post.
2. Upload your image to the Flickr Group page at
3. Add a description of your “B” thing to the photo eg “B for balloon”

I’m very happy to report that the Photo Challenge is once again being sponsored by Print Yours. They are an independent print lab who specialise in creating small run, high quality prints. Check out their web site for more information http://www.printyours.co.uk/

So what will the winner receive? Well, Print Yours have generously offered to print the winning entry on their 270gsm Photo Satin paper up to a whopping 24”x16”. That’s an £18 print for FREE! If you’re the lucky winner then all you need to do is send a high res version to Print Yours (via email) and they’ll do the rest.
