    Maggot Photo Contest - Volume Two - WINTER - January 1st through Feb 28th, 2020

    Alright, there's been some buzz around starting the Maggot Photo Contest back up. For the new people, or anyone who doesn't remember, the MPC was a series of photo contests all run around a theme. We ran 176 of them before they sort of died out a couple years ago.

    So let's give this another shot.

    The theme for this one is Winter. Let's keep it broad and keep it easy. Any photo taken within the time frame is eligible.

    RULES:

    1. Photos must be taken within the time period of the contest.
    2. You may submit 3 photos during the competition.
    3. The contest moderator will choose 5 (or 6) photos to be voted on.
    4. The winner will get a happy feeling in his/her pants. (That is a rule by the way, not an option.)
    5. In the event of a tie, the contest moderator will have the deciding vote.
    6. Winner will be the contest starter/moderator for the next comp.
    7. The winner has 3 days to start a new contest or 2nd place becomes the new winner.
    8. And have fun.

    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    iPhone pic, snapped it real quick at work the other day...the struggle to upload this one was real.
    I tried different browsers, reducing the file size, cropping the photo. It was a "live" photo, so I think that was screwing with it. Finally a screen shot of the photo, and cropped was what it took to get it to upload and also to show up vertical. ​

    That's a winner in my book. The lack of sharpness imparts a dreamy quality which is very cool.

    Yeah, I got my shot as seen above but before taking it, I may have done a poor job pulling off the side of the road a bit too far!
