Weekly Worlds Challenge 67!

The challenge for this week was to post your favorite photos of '08.

According to Flickr, these were my six most interesting pictures...

Chip Break

The Other Woman

Candy Seeds

Snail Shell

Bad Day

If you haven't joined the fun yet, go
here for details. We also have a Flickr group for easy shareability. Not only do you get to add "Lowly Foon" to your resume, but you get to find out the new words at least an hour earlier. Happy snapping!

Thanks to everyone who
submitted their ideas for this year's WWC. I have decided to accept ALL of the suggestions. This morning I cut out tabs with 110 various words, letters, numbers and themes written on them. They have been placed in a bag and will be drawn at random each Tuesday. The only rule I have is that we will never do more than one letter or a letter-number combination in a week. If that happens, both tabs will be placed back in the bag and redrawn.

The words for next week are:
Unusual Perspective

Daily Etsy Pick:
Seahorse Camera Strap
Tweet Needle Felted Bluebird
Bento Box with Sushi Soap (I freakin' LOVE Bento Boxes!)

WTF Etsy?:
Golf Guy
Smoke and Mirrors I (So creepy)
"A Jewish Gentleman" Pillow
Dino Hand T

You Heart Etsy:
Super Devil (Submitted by Niki!)

Before I go -- I posted faves

I don't understand bad day. You just look like you're thinking about stuff.

Where's the anger! Where's the hurt!The betrayal! The rage, the tears of injustice!

I call redo!

I could see why that 1st pic is popular lol.

Ok I'll post a few of my favourite pics from 08 on my blog the next few days.

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger Niki said...

Mine are up! So hard to choose.

You "Bad Day" photo is one of my favorites!

You can take an awesome self portrait. Get into the headshot biz and make some extra dough Tink!

Is it wrong that I look at the slimy snail and think..."If only I had salt." ?

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger Jay said...

I love the "snail" and "bad day" pics most. But they're all awesome.

I'll do my best not to get arrested while trying to get the "unusual perspective" shot. ;-)

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger Karen said...

That first picture cracks me up! Great way to use the suggestions! U R so smrt!

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger Chatty said...

"Bad day" was one of the very first pictures of yours that I saw - I loved it then, and I love it now! Also, "The Other Woman" and the snail. It's amazing to me that with all the fantastic photos you took, you (or anyone) could narrow them down to six. I couldn't, and I'm not nearly as good as you are! Anyway, my "year in pictures" is up, too.

I love that black & white shot!

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger Christy said...

Must find a place to buy candy seeds!

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger furiousBall said...

i think it would have been cooler if someone had taken a sharpie and drawn a twister sister logo on it

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger g-man said...

Very cool pictures all. The bad day is especially poignant. The blue helmet makes me laugh. And the seeds are just a wicked good shot.

Mine are up, but be warned there are a lot. (I am too indecisive)

Nice selection! I'm lovin' the Other Woman HA!
Mine are finally up, WOO HOO! Back in the WWC saddle again, BAABAAY!

I covet your Golden Spork Award.
Damn my unreliable pirated wireless connection.
Oh well.
Nice pictures!

At 13 January, 2009, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

I'm like G-man, I have a good many because I couldn't pick just a couple. Not that I feel they're the greatest. But of course, as a "writer" type as well as artist type, I put my slideshow to words with my story-captions.

Hope it's bearable... lol

These are great... Your photos always move me.

In the spirit of Delurking week, everyone pop on by and check em out. I'm still getting around. It's been a busy week. :(

At 14 January, 2009, Blogger Reb said...

Damn - I'm not gonna get a golden spork this year :(

Lovely photos Tink, the B&W of you is great!

At 14 January, 2009, Blogger Terri said...

I'm baaaaack!

At 14 January, 2009, Blogger mamatulip said...

I still LOVE the 'bad day' pic. LOVE IT.

Belatedly stopping by because my computer kept seizing up yesterday!
It didn't help that I spent 2 days trying to choose pics --like some, I ended up with a lot of them-- unlike those smart people, I don't know how to do a slide show, so you'll just have to suffer through a long post.

I am excited for these new word combinations in 2009!

At 15 January, 2009, Blogger Jen said...

You never disappoint on WWC! Ever. I wish I could put you in my pocket and take you out whenever I wanted a great shot of something. . . .

At 15 January, 2009, Blogger Chris Cactus said...

Seems like I say the same thing every week (though I won't let that stop me) - awesome shots!

At 15 January, 2009, Blogger mrspao said...

I'm looking forward to another year of WWC! I'm going to have to try and participate more this year :)

At 15 January, 2009, Blogger Woman in a Window said...

That last shot is gorgeous, gorgeous shot and gorgeous you.

At 15 January, 2009, Blogger Gin said...

Great shots Tink...you are so talented at seeing beauty and fun in everyday things. Love these!

I'm going to try to join you in WWC once again. I loved doing it, just didn't have time. Now I do...I will start next week.

At 16 January, 2009, Blogger Tawcan said...

Just posted my pics on my blog. :D

Haven't been here in forever! I got to read up on several months worth of Hoop-dialogue, and that was enjoyable. Wish I had skipped over the redneck conversations, though. In Hoop's defense about that song referenced from a long time ago that you probably don't remember: I always thought it was "shot/lit up like a douche."
