We haven’t had any photo contests, competitions or challenges (call them what you feel more comfortable with) for a while now, so let’s see if we can garner any interest in one. This being a leap year, we have a leap day in February, so let’s go with that leap theme. Now I know that some of you might just want to tell me to take a flying leap,:shock: but my thought is that we should take a leap into the future. How about holding a photo challenge where we post one of our photos showing something futuristic? That should open a wide choice of things if we think about it. For example, even though the Zephyr was first introduced in the early 30’s, it was futuristic in its style and still is. The monorail is a bit old, but still futuristic as are some of the trains in Europe and Japan. We may find a super-modern rail terminal, or even a modern building or other structure that resides on your layout. How about entering a shot of one of those? The guidelines (no rules here, just something to keep some order to this): Submit a picture of something modern, futuristic, super-stylish or even way-out outlandish or imaginary. It can be a loco, a train, a building, a structure or any other thingy that might fit the bill. It can be from a layout, a diorama or even real life stuff. It can be an old picture or a new one, just one that was taken by you. As usual, post your pictures in this thread. One picture per person. This challenge will start February 1, and run all through February and end on midnight, leap day, at which time we will check to see whose pictures that we like more than the others by opening up a voting poll. We will open the voting poll when we leap into March (or for those who aren't aware, on March 1st), and we'll keep it open for two weeks. The one that gets the most votes will not get a prize,:nope: but, leaping lizards, we will see if we can’t get that picture on the cover of the next Gauge eMag plus put it up as the “picture of the week” on the Gauge portal.:thumb: (Now as you might know, that could extend to several weeks depending on how much attention Mikey or myself give to changing it.) Good luck to all, let's leap right into this.
