Erm...2 days.... unless I have lost a day.

I've never posted an entry before, struggling with the size at the moment I think it's going to be either too small or too weird. :oops:

Apologies in advance. :)
Smile! It confuses people

Voting over and the results are in.....

New Beginnings - most entries were for springtime, with a couple about the new beginnings in Egypt.

1st was Egyptophile with 8.2 with a great photo of birds at Dakhla
2nd was me with 7.78 for the little girl at the Egypt Moving Forward event
3rd was Grandad with 7.5 for his crocuses.
4th equal were Fablux and Jewel with 7.33.

So congratulations to Egyptophile, who now has the job of setting April's topic...

Well done Egyptophile and everyone who entered.

Here's a suggestion for future topics if the winner is struggling for ideas. Why don't we go from A - Z, that would give us 26 months, the winner could decide if the month should be Egypt only or worldwide.

Like the idea, although X might be difficult! (as I don't regard Xmas as a proper word!)

Abstract titles are also a good idea.

I would like to suggest :


[glow=red]COLOUR RED[/glow]


I was thinking of anything from flowers, sunsets, women dressed in red, or any photo where the red sticks out in comparison to the other colours.....
I have added some photos in the Album "Photos of Egypt" to show what I mean.

I am open to any other suggestions of course

Colour Red sounds good to me......wide open to interpretation :)
