ziggyx2003: Great suggestion Jadedink, a song with quite a few possibilitities. ( 5 years and 2266 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Good idea ( 5 years and 2266 days ago )
robvdn: Lyrics @ http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/thesoundofmusic/myfavoritethings.htm ( 5 years and 2265 days ago )
kyricom: There are going to be 9,841 shots of whiskers on kittens, and 7,482 of raindrops on roses ( 5 years and 2265 days ago )
: Judging by the shots so far I think you may be undershooting a bit, kyricom. ( 5 years and 2264 days ago )
locksmagic: wow that's crazy, who made the last comment? ( 5 years and 2264 days ago )
magicsteve: It was me. Not sure why my name didn't appear! Freaky. ( 5 years and 2264 days ago )
jeaniblog: Getting some weird off theme entries here.. ( 5 years and 2263 days ago )
EmiK: I think some people just read the title of this contest, and don't see the part about the song. ( 5 years and 2263 days ago )
locksmagic: Unfortunately I think there are going to be a lot of entries that may seem off topic but one could argue that "the things in this shot are some of my favorite things" This seems to be one of those cases where the suggestor had a certain thing in mind but didn't think that people would take it in this direction. ( 5 years and 2263 days ago )
captgeo: People are taking "words" not "lines" from the song. Having a picture of roses without drops on them is off theme. Right? ( 5 years and 2262 days ago )
jadedink: wow.. read the suggestion is all i have to say. Its not about what our own personal favourites are, but more illustrating the song. i thought it was pretty clear. ( 5 years and 2261 days ago )
Contest Moderator: If it's not one of the "favorite things" from the lyrics of the song, it will be off topic...simple as that, if you are not familiar with the song, PLEASE check the above links BEFORE shooting and submitting... ( 5 years and 2261 days ago )
Harrierman: Mod, this is not what the Goal stipulates. It reads, 'take some lines from the song [called] "A few of my favorite things" ...'. It does NOT say that you have to illustrate favorite things from that song. By removing entries that reflect, 'when the dog bites, when the bee stings, etc', you are changing the goal. ( 5 years and 2261 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Fair enough, as long as the entry illustrates a line from the song it will be on topic... ( 5 years and 2261 days ago )
captgeo: Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens ( 5 years and 2259 days ago )
captgeo: etc ( 5 years and 2259 days ago )
captgeo: etc ( 5 years and 2259 days ago )
captgeo: sorry for the double "etc" post ( 5 years and 2259 days ago )
jadedink: taking one word and illustrating it isn't what i expected. honestly, "TAKE LINES FROM THE SONG AND ILLUSTRATE IT" not, take ONE word and illustrate it. in that case, almost anything would be on topic. why bother having a theme at all if thats the case? *doh* why be sooooo difficult on something so simple? ( 5 years and 2259 days ago )
captgeo: I don't understand why this is so hard to understand. ( 5 years and 2259 days ago )
jawshoewhah: So if an entry only illustrates one word, like half the entries in this contest, it's off theme? Seems like a good idea to me. ( 5 years and 2259 days ago )

Howdie stranger!

Here my kitty is standing in the doorway, thinking about going outside. I got nice and low for this shot, and got lucky with how dark the background came out. (5 years and 2266 days ago)
