    The theme is portraiture - pics of people, self or otherwise.

    I thought I'd swing it back to people this month rather than things.......

    * It is encouraged that people enter new photos
    * Up to 3 pictures allowed per person
    * Post up the link, not the picture
    * All entries must be in by 29th February 23:59:59, and no later, or woe betide you.
    * Only use pictures you photographed yourself
    * If you edit the picture then tell us what you did
    * Please don’t change pictures once you have entered them
    * Have fun

    Voting:

    * Starts on 1st March and ends on 3rd March.
    * 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.

    Because I have zero time at the moment what with AHRC statements, dissertations, and all sorts of other shit, I'm going to end up entering a couple of old ones. I'll try my very best to set some time aside to persuade people I know (I'm looking at you, Dillinger4) to let me take their photies later in the month though.

    And so:

    1) self
    (and bigger)

    oh, and before I enter it, would people say this counts?

    Thanks. It was taken inside a pub in York. As I remember my finace was staring out of the window which was just to the left of the camera. I love it, but she hates it :(
