Thank you for your work on this, Recusant.  :boaterhat:

I did not expect to see so many entries for this one. It just shows how a difficult challenge can stimulate creativity.

Do we have records on the number of photos received in previous challenges?

I can't stop looking at all these photographs. They're great. It was difficult voting for only five of them.

And I want to know about 6. Looks a bit like one of the Ice Age "Venuses", especially the "Venus of Willendorf", or their drpiction of,the Gorgon.

Nope, I prefer my partners slim rather than globular! But I do have a casual interest in the possible symboligy of prehistoric art. And an appreciation of the beauty of it.

Wow, we had 29 entries. I think that is one of the largest field of photographs we've ever had here at HAF for one of these challenges.

Some really nice entries, this was definitely a great idea for the challenge (Alphabet Soup that is)

Obviously #9 is Dave's, what with the picture of the half-naked men on the window ;D
Every taco is hand rolled with exotic Mexican spices by genuine Mayan Virgins.
Or. Carlos, depending on who's available.

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

I think you're right. Probably memorabilia from his pro wrestling days. I suspect he's the one on the extreme right.  :love:
