    Ordinary People.

    Obviously ordinary people are anything but ordinary, many are quite extraordinary, what I mean by ordinary people is just - not filmstars or celebrities.

    It could be a candid or a portrait or a grab shot, head shot, head and shoulders, full length, people doing something, whatever, colour or black and white, the only rule is that the subject of the photo should be a person or persons.

    I am hoping it will allow lots of entries, everyone takes photos of people, don't they?

    Entries:
    • It is encouraged, but not essential, that people enter new photos
    • Up to 3 pictures allowed per person
    • Last entry at midnight 30th April 2013
    • Only use pictures you photographed yourself
    • If you edit the picture then it'd be nice if you tell us what you did
    • Please don’t change pictures once you have entered them.
    Voting:
    • 1st May 2013 to midnight on 3rd May.
    • Anyone can vote. You don't have to have entered
    • Vote for your 1st, 2nd and 3rd favourites
    • 1st choice is worth 3 points, 2nd choice is worth 2 points and 3rd choice is worth 1 point
    • The entry with the most points wins, and chooses the next theme.

    Great capture. So much life and interest in that shot. The sleeping bloke is the initial focus, but then your eyes start wandering and your mind starts wondering - first to the lunching lady, but then all over the scene - it's like a Where's Wally picture iykwim.
