There was this moderately successful pop band back in the 1960's called the The Beatles. I seem to remember their off-key caterwauling on the old Sullivan Show*, but you youngsters may have to google them. This mission for this challenge is to portray the title of a Beatles' song in a photograph.

Here's my example (Not eligible for voting)

Subfolder

Slideshow

Have fun, and I deny any responsibly for the earworms. Yeah Yeah Yeah!


Rules:

Posters have 24 hours from the post that sets the new challenge to submit their pictures to the thread.
Voting will then start, continuing for another 24 hours.
After those 24 hours, the votes will be counted, and the winner issues the next challenge.
All pictures must be taken specifically for this thread.
One entry per person per round.
Once you have posted a pic, you cannot change it.
The first person to post a pic (not including the person who set the challenge) automatically gets one bonus vote.
One vote per person.
You can't vote for yourself.
You do not have to have entered a picture to vote for the winner.
Votes must be posted in bold. If quoting someone else, please edit out bold tags, to avoid confusion. Please do not put any other text in bold.
In the event of a tie, the person who posted their picture first wins.
Votes are cast for the content of a picture, not picture quality or photographic skills. Vote for originality, effort and comedy.
Be honest. If the challenge is to have a picture taken with a dog that is not yours, then don't take a picture with your dog. You're only cheating yourself.
No Photoshopping or editing of any kind. You can reduce the size of your pictures, but no cropping or anything else. The photos must be as you took them.
This is the Photobucket page for this competition. The name is "snopesphoto", and the password is "snopes". Visit here and upload the picture to the appropriate subfolder, putting your name in the "description" field. Provide a direct link to the photo in your post.
Be careful when choosing a filename for your photo, before uploading it. 2 photos with the same name in the same folder can cause problems with Photobucket. It's suggested that you save the photo with a filename that is a combination of the challenge name and your name. So, if your name is "Discogal" and the challenge is "take a picture with a dog that is not yours", then "Disconotmydog" would be a good filename.
The winner, once they have set the new challenge, will create a new subfolder, obviously titled.
The winner will set the new challenge in a new thread, which is to be titled "24 Hour Photo Challenge", and which is to contain the name of the new challenge and the round number.
These rules are to be pasted into the first post of the new challenge.
The first post should also contain a direct link to the new subfolder, and one to the slideshow for that subfolder ("http://s107.photobucket.com/albums/m288/snopesphoto/NAME OF SUBFOLDER/?action=view&slideshow=true" Note, this url, as written will not work, as it contains spaces. Where there are spaces in the "name of subfolder" space, replace them with "%20").

SatansHobbit, I'm so glad to see that I'm not the only one who had trouble with photobucket, I was confused about the slideshow until I finally read the contest rules ALL the way to the last rule [Smile] .

Anyway, you made the same mistake with the Slideshow I made at first, here's the correct link in case you want to correct it.

Now that I've entered the contest, I'm wondering, is this theme anyway influenced by tomorrow's release of "Love" by the Beatles?

I assume, from NeeCD's unreferenced entry in the album, that it wasn't just me that was unable to connect to the message board (and boy was that painful [Smile] ). Are you going to change any of the deadlines SatansHobbit?

I'll start even though mine should be fairly easy to guess.

"When I'm Sixty-Four"

My model will actually be sixty-three next week. We won't wait until then to cut the cake but I will save the candles for next year. [Smile]

AmISam, you're correct, I got the "board is down" message right when I was ready to post. Since SatansHobbit hasn't called time (ETA and now that I've fixed my local time, I see that I'm still in the time limit, anyway), I'll post my link now. [Smile]

Long Tall Sally

EATA now that I've read the clock announcement, I see that I'm actually 2 hours over, so I'll go back to my SH hasn't called time excuse.

NeeCD, I saw your photo in the subfolder before the original deadline so I think you are fine. I think I probably posted in the subfolder shortly before you did. I couldn't add the link at that time either because the boards were down.

I also agree with the SH hasn't called time excuse.
