    This is what a photo is all about. Condensing a complex feeling and so many words into a simple but powerful image.

    "Other side of Christmas" expressed to a tee. Congratulations and well-deserved BB! :thumbup:

    Congratulations for a tremendously powerful shot - it was my winner from the moment I saw it. Simple and graphic, with layers of meaning and something for everyone. Channeling Martin Parr, too :cool: Well done!

    AHHHH!!!!THANK YOU BILL!!!! :friends:
    Mate it was bugging me whose style BB's shot reminded me of. I almost convinced myself it was Winogrand. But, YES, that's it MARTIN PARR! Well spotted mate!

    Thanks you all, this was a challenging challenge that is for sure. This was the first time I actually saw something and said "Oh, gee, maybe I could use that for the WC?" I honestly felt as though I was grasping at straws...but with a crop and some heavy handed pping, I thought it was funny and kind of suited my mood...to bid the gatherings, albeit of friends, goodbye but with a sunny, happy kind of "Thanks for Visiting". :wink:

    I'm very glad some of you thought it was humorous, too. You never know whether or not anyone will see what you saw.
