Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Welcome back for another round of the DC Photography contest, come and show us what you've got! 

 

This time, the theme is: Comfort -- something comfortable, or something that brings you comfort when you are down.

 

Submission deadline: August 16

 

Voting deadline: August 30

 

Rules:

- One entry per person.

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.).

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

Well, it appears that I picked a real dud for my theme.

Should I change it?

Maybe everyone was waiting for someone else to go first?

I'm a kid at heart (and live alone) so I still snuggle with stuffed animals for comfort! ;)

 

Ralph and the NDLs (Non-Drama Llamas). Ralph sports a Doctor Who style scarf I crocheted for him years ago.

I work in a petstore so it's easier to have them around haha if an employee is allergic, they accept the risks just by working there 🤣 (we have actually 2 and used to have a 3rd one (RIP)

I work in an animal shelter and am allergic to cats so try to avoid the cat areas. I actually kind of like the whole mask protocol now as I feel safer around the cats, too! (You do mean RIP cat, right? Not RIP employee? :( either way.)

I thought this guy looked pretty comfortable. I believe this is a ring-billed gull but I can't be certain.

Voted! I love this thread, so make sure you are always sharing & participating, even if just in voting and/or enjoying the art. I super wish I had time to have submitted a picture myself as I loved the Topic and had a fun idea to share, but ... life made no time for me!! Thanks for all the artful creations you all share with us of yourselves and allowing us to enjoy and be inspired!

So we can share them! That's why there's no drama around them :D

Of course, my cat deserves that last spot. When I cried yesterday, he would NOT let me cuddle him :( Stupid spoiled cat. Should've sent in another photo of the other cat - SHE actually cuddled with me!
