    Photo Challenge (2012) - January

    We have had so much fun with the Monthly Photo Challenge in the past, it would be a crime if did not continue into the NEW YEAR.

    Since this is Two-Thousand-Twelve, I thought it appropriate to offer the following challenge:
    An image that depicts either TWO or TWELVE.

    Many things appear in pairs. Be creative in spotting them and photographing them.

    {If you can produce something that depicts TWO-THOUSAND (or even TWO-THOUSAND-AND-TWELVE) that would be awesome!}

    We have always had many, many rescued animals in my house (not quite two-thousand of them!). So I can supply these examples.

    I used to be a bit of both in my younger days . Nowadays being older, wiser and slower, I don't do much of either

    I think there is a requisite number of posts before you are permitted to upload images.

    We are anxious to see your images. Contribute to some of the other discussions on Sitepoint and, before you know it, the upload capability will appear!

    @guido2004 ; I'm going to take your word for the bikes. I can't count that high!

    The lizards are one of my favorite species. They are bearded dragons.

    The 12 Apostles on Victoria's Great Ocean Road.

    Some are behind where the photo was taken and I think there are only about 8 in total left standing. But originally there were 12 (erosion has got the better of some of them )

    @Max Height ; Wow! they are absolutely gorgeous. Maybe a dumb question here, but are they part of the Great Barrier Reef?

    They're part of the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. They used to be spectacular but not so much now. There even used to be a London Bridge but I think that's gone too...

    No, they are part of the coastline off the south west Victorian (Australia) coast - near Port Campbell and Warrnambool.

    No, London Bridge is still there but part of it collapsed back in the early 70's from memory. Attached are "before" and "after" photos of London Bridge. The before photo was taken circa late 60's on a family holiday when I was a kid. The after photo was taken on a trip about 5 years ago now.

    London Bridge is part of the same section of coastline as The 12 Apostles, collectively know as The Shipwreck Coast for historical reasons.

    ** I don't know how to wrap OT tags around the London Bridge photos

    Mmm... I wouldn't call it a bridge anymore. I'd probably call it... stumpy. Or just a foot-bridge.

    Yesterday you were waffling on about fluff posts and yet you post the above

    I don't see what London Bridge has got to do with this thread at all. I only posted the photos to show it is still there after your comment suggesting it might not be

    Shouldn't you be at least wrapping your above post in ot tags if you want your suggestions elsewhere about fluff posting to be taken seriously?

    Instead of posting fluff, why not post some photos that fit the purpose of this thread?

    There, there Max... it's all part of the discussion. OT tags or not, it can be read by everyone and takes up the same space. This has been a fun thread so far, let's keep it that way.
