Re: May 2018 POTM

What a terrific contest!! So many options and combinations of a theme possible!

***Just for fun entry!! Theme is color green and a celebration!!***

This is a picture of me with Sasquatch, my late male Eclectus. I attended a community college for the first two years and majored in business/aviation management. In 2004 the college had a milestone anniversary and sought varied alumni to create a poster theme to decorate the campus. I represented the Aviation Sciences department and a school photographer shot this with a large format camera. The text is a bit cheesy, but it sort of fits. Image taken at my home with trees as background. Sasquatch was tame but free-flighted, so I held on to his foot very tight!! She conned me into wearing the hat... something I *never* do at work. Hate hats!!

Re: May 2018 POTM

And, just to help with the many opportunities to base your Photos around:

As Scott stated earlier: It will be feasible for the contestant to weave multiple themes in an entry! An Amazon with flowers in the background celebrating May Day. Or a bird eating an orange - May 2 is Scurvy Awareness Day! May 4 is Star Wars Day!

Great idea for a theme, Steven! This month is going to be amazing!!!

And off to a fantastic start with Scott's just for fun entry! I love it, brother! And yes, I see you've got the grip of death going on over Sasquatch's foot! So great to see him again!

Re: May 2018 POTM

JUST FOR FUN!

Loving this whole thread!
Okay...
Among all the possibilities, my heart compels me to contribute...
The Rickeybird's hatchdate!
34 years ago, on Cinco de Mayo (May 5th), the Rb erupted into this world. I adopted him a few months later. Here's a photo from around 1984-5 (from the physical scrapbook).
Thanks, Mr. Boat, for providing a chance for me to celebrate with our community here!
