Just scraping in on the last day of the competition!
Smile: me from a long, long time ago.
Companionship: Me and EWK, taken at his brother's wedding
Hands: I took a little artistic license with this one. I figured paws were much the same, but from a non humanly-biased sort of way. Plus it was the cutest photo so I couldn't not
Youth: A friend's baby
International culture: My sister's fabulous Buddha statue
Shiny: An arty-farty christmas tree I made last year
Fierce: My cranky kitteh. Especially fierce if we've forgotten to feed her.
Water: Taken at Albert Park Lake
Play: A balsa wood puzzle I made in first year of my design degree
Vintage: A brass ewer I inherited from my oma and opa
Pretty: Part of a gorgeous applique wall hanging made by my mum-in-law
Mechanical: My new wall mounted weight driven clock.
And here is the illustration (done for my own amusement and not part of the official competition).
Smile: The little girl in the boat
Companionship: Girl + woman, and fish + octopus
Hands: Enlarged hands on both humans
Youth: The little girl
International culture: The kimonos
Fierce: The older woman
Water: The fish and the octopus are swimming in it
Play: The fish and the octopus playing cards
Vintage: Bit of a cheat here. I used the fob watch for both this and for 'mechanical'
Pretty: Patterns in the boat and from the water
Mechanical: The fob watch again. I meant to include more mechanical stuff but the picture was busy enough already!
This was really fun! I'm looking forward to next month's challenge.
