June 2008 challenge - Summer fun

marko
June 2nd, 2008, 08:42 AM
Any ideas for this month's photo challenge?

Here's some random ideas..


First day of summer - so summer/beach pics?
'June bugs' - pets with bugs, dressed up as bugs?
It's a big wedding month - pets ready for nuptuals - dressed up like they are getting married?


Okay - I've got nothing

I'm into summer or beach pix...anyone else agree of have a good idea?

Beach photos sound like fun to me too.

i think we need to expand on that some, not everyone has a beach around them.

I agree with you on the aslan, I don't take the dogs to the beach even though we are 10 mins away. Come to that I don't go to the beach. The public ones around here are not that big and way too busy.

we could do lazing in the sun and/or beach pics, enjoying the sun and warmth

works for me...

How many kitties would make it to a beach? Sun they could do, of course. :D

How about something totally off the summer theme...like pets looking wise beyond their years, or wrestling with toys and/or another pet, or pets caught in the act of mischief... :D

How about summer fun and action/playing

For the record, that's what I meant - beach pics for those that frequent them, soakin' up the sun for the rest.. ;)

I would leave the sun idea until July as June can still have quite a few rainy days. :shrug:

I agree with Aslan about the "wise beyond their years look" .....my fuzzbutts don't fit there either. :laughing:

The wrestling with toys or mischief idea sounds good though. :)

Wellll, as you all know, we have no shortage of beach to go around but SUMMER??? that's another matter, you'll have to give me a call in August or so. We barely have leaves on most of the trees, summer has not been seen or hear of yet. I'll see what we can find though :thumbs up
Seems i'm just getting ready for the May post... things are getting green around here now. Enough whining for you yet?

And the first photo....
