4 pics a week is candidate!

You should change it to candidate and have "not shoot anything off topic" as an additional challenge happy

Great challenge though. Finding something worth shooting in our everyday lives helps us see all the small details around us that are just so beautiful, and yet overlooked. I look forward to see what comes out of this challenge happy

I figured the no off-topics of the higher level balanced out the pictures per day of the lower level. But fine, i'll play by your semantics. tongue

Edit: Maybe not. Edit time is up. Fate has decreed.

Well, I'm failing this challenge horribly. But today I actually have a submission.

Was taking a study break and decided to go enjoy a cigar and a beer outside to enjoy the unusually nice weather tonight. Apart from some racoons that wandered nearby, I got a visit from this guy:



He decided to sit in my lap and hang out with a little shelter from the cold. He followed me inside, so I gave him a little food and water before sending him on his way...

First time I've seen him. Think he is the stray cat an apartment e-mail was referencing a few days ago. Now the trick is to avoid adopting him...

Because I don't want any responcibility outside of doing well in school for the next three years. tongue

Well, the cat spent the night. And took a giant dump in my roommates tub. I'm glad it had the sense to go in the tub though...

Did you at least clean it up for your roommate? Or did you leave it for him like a cute little present? happy

Roommate discovered it and cleaned it up. I had noticed the smell earlier, but thought it was just the cat and/or tuna we fed the cat. Roommate was in on the foster care idea, so it wasn't a big deal. Cat's spending one more night; here's to hoping for a lack of poop on the carpet...
