    The topic:


    You may choose to interpret this however you wish, but make sure that it links to the topic in some way!!

    Let's end this salon on August 14

    Rules are simple................

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture 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 picture 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 person who submitted the chosen picture 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 PL 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 can't enter his or her own salon.

    6. Please, donĀ“t be shy...Participate and have fun!

    I don't normally do "cute" but this is an exception. The sparkle in a kit's eye at his first Christmas...

    I've posted this one before (almost exactly a year ago). I thought I'd give it another airing here as it's ... sparkly.

    It's true that all that sparkles is not gold, but can be far more precious...

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Heading for Seattle and Alaska for a couple of weeks, which might lead to more sparkling photos, but won't be back to go through them until after the 14th. So I'll go with these glasses from around last Christmas. Fairly literal interpretation I guess...
