June 2010 photo challenge - Close-ups

Hi members!

anyone got any suggestions for this month's challenge?

2 that come to mind are
- close-ups
- Pets in the mirror (where we photograph our pets looking in the mirror or hold them while we both look in the mirror and someone else takes the picture)

I'm not at all married to these ideas so feel free to suggest anything.

The theme with the most support when i come back to this thread tomorrow - becomes this month's theme.

Many thanks!!

Marko

I vote for close ups ! :thumbs up

Close-ups in the mirror? :D

No mirrors for close-ups--too many wrinkles :p

Ok members,

The theme this month is close-ups - so get in there and get as close as you can! :D

Ok then - who is going first?

Thx!
Marko
