    December Photo Showcase: LARGE

    In most of the world, this is the month that contains a flurry of activity (and sometimes a flurry of snowflakes). We are assaulted* by music and overt 'decorations' celebrating the Christmas holiday.
    • This Holiday is very big
    • The decorations are often very big
    • The investments of retailers to seduce us into buying is very, very big
    • The way I feel after a family Turkey dinner is very, very, very big


    For that reason our topic of the month is LARGE.
    Interpret it as you see fit when displaying your photographs.




    *If you visited my neighborhood, you would understand my choice of words. There seems to be a competition for the lawn with the most BIG AND COLORFUL (often flamboyant) decorations.

    Thanks dude.

    Just curious, who comes up with the ideas for these monthly photo showcase threads?

    Usually Thom and I do a PM to each other just before the beginning of the month and see who's got ideas and what. Do you wanna help out? We could use an extra fresh brain to pick out some ideas.



    Edit: That goes for anyone who'd like to put ideas in, just let me know and we'll get a PM list going. I always felt that the best way for these threads to be more interesting is if we take ideas from everyone since we've all got different perspectives and such.

    Its not Gateway of India, I posted the photo of India Gate, both look similar but are different & are in different cities hundreds of miles apart.

    And, obviously, Armchair and I both got caught up in the end-of-year/beginning-of-year activity and don't have a new topic for January.

    Congratulations to Armchair for his Community Award!!
