    As I come from Australia, well New Zealand to be more precise I thought a fun theme for the 39th might be reflective of my geographical location, being down under :).

    I will let you interpret that as you will ... :)

    The challenge will run for two weeks (approximately) and I'll close it on Monday July 31 around 8am, Australian Western Standard Time. I'll give warning of closure on Sunday night my time.

    1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images in order to enter it.

    2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement pictures that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo-challenge, after all!

    4. The winner will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge, and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the SC Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    5. The curator cannot enter his or her own salon

    It is an artwork at the entrance to the City of Fremantle (Western Australia for the non-aussies :)). This is a shot of the full artwork:

    So is the theme about the view from down under, or the view of something down under?

    A different interpretation of Down Under. This was taken in a very old cemetery, which dates back to the 19th century, in the southern Oregon town of Ashland, where I used to live. It's a block away from the town's main street but here, it always seems to stay quiet.
