September Countdown Thread


September Countdown Thread

Welcome to the September Countdown Thread.
Sorry I am starting this thread a little late this month. My wife, Cindy, and I have been dealing with clean-up and repairs from Hurricane Florence. All will be fine for us but will take a year or more to put things back to normal. Many of our friends had major damage, we were fortunate.

On to the September action!!! Now is the time to share one or two of your favorite photos from last month. There are so many fabulous photo posted on BP. So many very inspiring works of time and talent. I like this thread because its purpose is for each of us to show case your individual photo that you believe is your best or that you feel is most representative of your inner self. So... let's see your personal best!
*If you are a regular here you know what to do.
**If you are new to this thread, take some time to read our helpful hints below and join in the fun.
*** If you found yourself here because you are lost.... Hmmm.., Don't worry, this is not the Hotel California, you can escape!
Some helpful hints for attaching photos into a BP Forum Thread, if you're unfamiliar with the process:
1) Sign into BP. IF YOU HAVEN'T entered the Contest for today, you can use the "Photo ID" method to pull an existing image (from your Member Center) into your reply here.
a. Jot down the PhotoID # of the photo you wish to share. To determine your PhotoID, go to the little Pancakes icon, then click “My Photos”, then “Manage/Enter.” The PhotoID is right below the number.
b. Go to the Countdown Contest thread. Click “Respond” at the bottom of the page.
c. Type in whatever you wish; e.g., “Here’s my Fav image for the month.”
d. Click the “Select” button below the text input box, and select “1.” Toggle on “Notify” box if you wish to be notified. Click “Submit.”
e. The Image Uploader appears. On the right-hand side, you’ll see an input box for the PhotoID (from step 1a). Type it in then click “submit your photo.” Then, return to the forum thread and you’ll see your photo.
2) IF YOU HAVE ALREADY entered the Contest for today, you can't use the Photo ID method *today*. Either wait until tomorrow to reply here first, or upload a copy of the image (from your PC) and attach to this thread. This produces a duplicate image in your Member Center; however, you don't have to make that duplicate visible in your Gallery.
3) If you're uploading a duplicate, I suggest titling it "For Forum" so it stands out in your Member Center, for easier housecleaning later on. This can also help nudge BP viewers to go find the original image in your gallery, if they want to leave a comment. Likewise, if you want to add a comment to a photo seen here, first try to tell if it is a duplicate upload. As a courtesy, try to find the original image in the member's gallery and leave your comment there instead of on the duplicate... which may one day be deleted.

I used the Theme Man Made Paths to display an old favorite of mine. This photo was taken 40 years ago when I first got into photography. I was back packing England with a train pass and staying in hostiles using my brothers place as a home place. he was stationed there in the Air Force. This photo has always been a favorite of mine

A different angle on a street light spotted in Seattle, WA. These lights are so surprising and fun when you have to do a double-take to make sure you're looking at what you see!

  Nice work Cary. The design elements on the architectural photo are strong but personally, me being more of a nature buff I like the Self-Reflection photo. strong emotional impact. Good Luck!

  Wow Carrie, the colors really pop in both of these photos. Again as I said to Cary, being a nature lover I like the hot springs photo most but both should do well in the contest. Both are winners in my book!

  Yes Jill, the detail on your kitten photo is spot-on and really makes this photo a winner. The Music room photo looks like a painting from a museum. Good Luck!

Another color of spring. These calves represent spring and color as they are the 1st thing we see that tells us spring is on its way. The calf represents color in its mischievous personality eating on the string. The color of the string is very colorful and in contrast to the red calf.

That's all for tonight.

  Any September SFs yet? I hate to ask since all the wonky stuff going on with the inability to post photos at all. Just curious ...
