How strict are we with the portrait thing? Does it need to be a person's face in the center or can it also be someone standing a bit further away, doing something or in group for example?

Δεν ελπίζω τίποτε. Δεν φοβάμαι τίποτε. Είμαι λεύτερος.

Justice is judgement that is both fair and forgiving. Justice is not done until everyone is satisfied, even those who offend us. Justice is not only the way we punish those who do wrong but is also the way we try to save them.

I think Bonitas definition hits it quite well.

What a subject I'm useless at taking pics of people and they never like their pictures in the end :depress: It's getting tougher and tougher every month you know. Maybe you'll even help me become a half-decent amateur photographer by the end of the year if it goes on like this

Patience please Heike, we are still ... hatching our images

Alright folks, you are also allowed to post images of figures which can be non-living entities, such as, dolls, mannequins, signs (of faces). And, of course, self-portraits.

As long as XT guidelines are followed, there are lots of possibilities.

Ok, if noone else is submitting, I will do now.

1) Floating
My first entry is from a trip to lake Titicaca, Peru. Took it with an analog Nikon SLR as a slide and scanned it in.



2) burning sun

thats a lil indian girl accompanying her mother to sell their woven fabrics. With a sleeping lamb on her lab she couldnt move away while sitting in the burning sun in Peru. Like the first pic I took this with an analog Nikon SLR as a slide and scanned it in.



3) viva espana

this is a residual from the worldcup. When I went to the city center here in Berlin I discovered this girl in the fan mile. I really love this picture. Its taken with my Canon Powershot 530.
