Happy Theme Day #1704145

LOL Bob. You are way more imaginative than I am. #11679471

Melinda F. Schneider level-classic February 20, 2018

What a great find! I'm afraid I can't find the camel either... but I do see a beautiful beta fish! #11679485

Amanda D. Austwick level-classic February 20, 2018

Nice strong patterns, and I see a snail. #11679497

Michele Peterson level-classic February 20, 2018

Camel eating an apple? You gotta show us that one, Bob. I see two turtle heads snuggling, a goldfish, and perhaps the same snail that Amanda sees! Great image, Nikki.... with lots of interesting texture. #11679557

Sorry, BP won't let me copy the image..... #11679562

I'm wondering if this might be the sort of thing they saw underfoot when they first stepped onto the moon's surface. I see the camel. Her name is Gertrude. #11679661

Martha R. Mazon level-classic February 21, 2018

Wonderful patterns in this earth, cracked open in anticipation of moisture. HTD! #11679862

I am surprised everybody missed the Shark! Super abstract entry, Nikki. Love this in B&W. #11679958

I like the contrasting lines...the thick, dark bigger cracks and then the smaller finer ones. Good eye to capture this! #11680335
