December Daily Photo Theme


The Daily Photo Theme for December is from the waist down.

I'd wanted a clear view of the Salvation Army Buskers. My first shot was spoilt by these interlopers, but this a crop from the rejected picture means it isn't waisted [sic] as it amply illustrates this present theme.

Next month's theme will be "Best Photo of 2006". I'm at a loss to decide which one to use so I've posted ten contenders here. Please visit and vote for your favourite.

Below are links to the sites participating in this month's theme. Some links will go directly to a page showing the theme. Due to time differences and other factors some will only link to the DP site's main page which may not yet/still be running with the theme.

We are so used to this scene that we don't take time to look. Great way to show the commonplace in a new way!

Kim said...

Nicely done! And I learned a new term from Sally ;^). Oh, those huge bell bottoms!

PS-How did you learn that January's theme is Best Pix 2006? I haven't seen anything in the Forum or received anything from Nuno?

Waisted...cute!

Speaking of "waists," I wish people would look in the mirror before stepping out into the world! That one on the right should NOT be wearing a belly shirt!!! Oh my.

Hi Kim, I tried to post this answer at your own blog but the word-verification wasn't showing.

You asked me how I knew Jan theme was best of 06.

You've obviously not been following the voting at http://dailyphoto.planetaclix.pt/dp/poll.html

Half way through the month it was obviously going to be a clear winner.

Felicia said...
