I really look forward to your posts. Unlike the past contests, the March-April 2011 event has special meanings for me. The year has barely begun and traumatic incidents had already surfaced. Yet despite Japan's demise and Eric Abidal's illness, there is also change, hope and renaissance, from Tunisia to Egypt to China ... And this is exactly why we are here to post our pictures. Indeed, go out there my friends -- capture the unexpected.
Good luck, everyone!
