We seem to have lost our way with the photo threads so I've decided to take matters in hand and set up a thread for photos covering the festive period from now until the decorations go down.

 

If we get enough entries we might have a friendly competition.  If we don't I'll start another thread at some point in January with another randomly selected theme.

 

So, as a reminder, the rules are:

 

  • Pictures should at least hint at the theme "Joy to the World"
  • Should be taken after 8:30am on 12/12/2013
  • Keep post-processing to a minimum unless you're doing something that rocks
  • Have fun
  • Be nice

Especially be nice because not doing so puts posters off from entering. Looking forward to the pictures as always.

Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

I'll have to put it on my list of things to do. My wife and I take cottage holidays most years and always visit a cathedral: Durham, Lincoln, Ely, Oxford, Truro, St Davids, Carlisle, York, Chester to name some, as well as both in Liverpool and the one in Manchester and others abroad. Also visited some in Scotland. With this in mind, churches and cathedrals could be a future theme for the photo comp and would be interesting indeed.

I have driven past Winchester many times visiting my brother in Plymouth and going to Worthing in my previous working life. Never stopped off for a look but my brother highly recommends it, and Carl isn't a bad judge either so I really must make the effort next time I'm passing.

Thanks for the pics Carl. St Patrick's Cathedral in Armagh, N. Ireland, has some amazing mosaics.

I'll start pinning the photo threads, and also remove any snarky comments designed to mock it or put people off taking part, as I think they're a fun part of the forum and worth encouraging people to get involved in again.

Was that intentional John? Although I'm not a snapper myself, I do hope the photo comp continues onwards and upwards.
