Another FARATS Entry!

Tracy Wilkins of sent me this link, telling me to take my pick for a FARATS entry. I picked the one featuring a bicycle, of course, although Tracy swears that was an accidental bonus sidewalk salmon. I probably would have chosen it anyway for its pure POW! factor.

Anyway, here's Tracy's entry:

Something else has come up. Chandra of GreenComotion has asked me if he could submit a picture from St. Louis that he took a few years ago. As much as I hate to say no, especially to Chandra, who may be one of the kindest online friends I've got, I'm saying no because I hope to run this contest annually and can't have people showing up with kick-ass pictures from previous years.

That said, I really want to see this photo. Chandra, would you send it in for me to post even though I won't enter it? Please? C'mon, you know you want to...

Thanks to all who have submitted or who plan to... I'm really enjoying this. As you know, it is really all about me. And maple-y goodness.

Wow. I may have to give up on finding a suitable entry!! However.... I'm beginning to think that if everyone is sending in pics of orange or red leaves, I may have to set myself apart by sending in a pic of a Yellow Leafed Tree... OR, to be really radical, a Green Leafed Tree. Perhaps being TOTALLY different is the stragedy to use! Hmmmm Hmmmm

That tree rocks!

That's going to be hard to beat.

Geez, that might be the winner. Big winds the last three days have eliminated all my candidate entries. Unless I can find a tree that had shelter, I think my pancakes will be naked this year.

GreenComotion said...

How could I say no to a good man like you? I will send the pics and also try to find a tree locally to photograph.

Peace :)

I suggest one of us hit the Dallas Arboretum and the other hits the Fort Worth Botannical Garden.

I also like the idea that we can just send Rantwick a slug of photos and he'll prejudge them. That notion hadn't crossed my mind until I read this post.

Hey, just because Tracy had a good tree, don't bail on my contest! I have to believe that there some good trees left.

Ha! I've had an idea. I've got more than one of those little jugs of maple-y wonder... stay tuned.
