WELCOME TO PHOTO CONTEST #401!


This round's theme is HOME as selected by your reigning champion: Chinup

Submissions must be original photographs, with or without pre or post editing. In the context of this contest, "home" can mean anything that symbolizes home to you. It does not have to be of your actual home. Please post a brief (or detailed!) explanation of why your photo means "home" to you.

Now taking your submissions! Submit to the heartless rulers of the dearest of all the Internet forums, LAVA!

Previous thread here

Win the contest and earn a new custom profile title in time for the height of Autumn. It also comes with a super warm and fancy virtual Bluelight jacket for the chillier nights ahead. The jacket also allows you to entirely escape LEO detection. it's called the Bluelight Jacket of Invisibility +1.



Submit as many entries as you want and get feedback on them. If you submit multiple photos and do not specify which one you want to go with, the most recent will be chosen for voting. Please be aware of when the contest will close, it will be announced ahead of time. Once the final entries are put into the first post and voting is opened, we cannot change your entry.

Here's the new photo contest, submit away! I slightly tweaked the wording on the rules so please note that, it will remain going forward. Basically, we do allow post processing explicitly now, and the last photo you submit will automatically be considered your submission once I create the poll, unless you explicitly state otherwise before the poll goes up.

Also, I had a hell of a time coming up with a good title for the winner so please feel free to suggest something better, I'm not sold on the one I came up with at all.

Participation has been up so I would like to try to stick with the timeframes for submissions and voting from now on, but at the same time, I will extend the deadlines if it will make for a better contest.

Haha, same pug from your photo that other round?

Your cat is beautiful chinup. :) I have 2 cats myself, they're 14 and 15, and I love them so much, they're my family. My boy (the one who's 14, he's the other one's son) is extremely bonded to me (and vice versa), I was there when he was born and he chose me. As soon as he could walk he walked all the way across the room, climbed my leg, sat on my chest and started nuzzling me. He's been like that ever since, all he wants is to lay on my chest and rest his cheek on my cheek. Fortunately he's really healthy. My girl cat had a cancerous mammary duct removed recently, spent an arm and a leg and now they recommend chemo. But she has recovered well. I can't imagine not having either of them with me.

Okay I want to find a better one but here is my current submission, my girl kitty.

yay! thanks! your cat is also beautiful. i really hope the girl cat pulls through. i'm a bit worried cos my cat has got a red spot in her eye, she could need her eye removed if its cancerous. i need to take her to a vet but i'm scared, i will because she depends on me for her care and i owe her that.

Thanks. :) That is a picture of her. It is really scary bringing them to the vet when you're worried. I felt a lump on my girl's belly for months and ignored it, but eventually it was like twice as big and it hadn't been very long so I took her in. Ended up on credit card debt again but she's alive.

This round is surprisingly slow compared to last. I'm adding an incentive: if you win, you get to invite, to your home, one (1) sexy Bluelight moderator of your choice. Oh the prestige! Oh the glory! But you have to submit an entry to even have that chance! ;)
