    Bushman Strikes Again! Creative panhandling at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Very entertaining to see this guy scare people!

    Not too far from Philly
    you should be able to figure it out...
    Only in Philly on New Years Day might this be expected. Anywhere / anytime else, one hopes not...

    The Box

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ramirezaponte/5415743228/" title="La caja by ramirezaponte, on Flickr"> 5415743228_f5f7cc037a_o. "857" height="1024" alt="La caja"></a>

    This was taken for a photo seminar in which I participated some time ago. The assignment was to take a self portrait wrapped in paper or in a box. My avatar photo was taken during this shoot.

    The photo does not fully comply with the guidelines of the Weekly Challenge (it was not shot with a compact camera), and should therefore not be considered for voting.

    Regards,

    Antonio

    BBW, I don't know if that's a mistake or a hilarious ironic joke. It amused me anyway.

    Can we change our entry if we come across something we like more before the challenge is over?

    An over enthusiastic neighbour has started some DIY, (do it yourself), work - he does not realise his our strength

    We are connected by the same wall - and to the unexpected surprise of all he "broke through" to us this morning, just in time for a coffee!!!!!

    not a great image, but I caught him in "the act"

    There must be more unexpected moments out there with you all who haven't entered your photographs. Unexpected can mean many different things - which is one of the reasons that I've enjoyed this challenge so much.

    Kathy, just FYI, I redid my original photo this morning and have thus edited it...so you're not alone in changing your mind! I do it all the time.:wink:
