POM - Sept/Oct 2013 - "Coffee"

Postby spankyham »

The theme this month is "Coffee"

Entries close October 11th.

Rules Rehash ....
1) Most importantly, this is meant to be fun. Anyone taking this too seriously, or getting upset about who wins and why will be taken out back and given a thorough thrashing.
2) Entries should not contain any infringing, threatening, false, misleading, abusive, harassing, libelous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory or pornographic content
3) It's got to be piccy's you've taken yourself
4) You can only enter one pic per contest
5) You can't vote for your own pic
6) Submit a version of your image 800Pixels wide. You can optionally submit a high res version as well. Please try and submit in JPG format.
7) You submit your image by sending me a PM with the link(s) to the image(s).
8.) Don't disclose the taker of any entry if you are sure of who took it - that includes your own image - but feel free to guess.
9) You can enter every month, but you can only use an image once - don't go submitting the same image in multiple POMs
10) You can use "in camera" techniques to enhance images but refrain from photoshopping. You can crop/resize images.
11) Stick to the theme
12) Winner picks next months theme

So remember rule 1, and get your entries in. I will post the entries as I receive them, and remember it is anonymous until we have a winner.

The measurement scales are in inches and centimeters - not something the US would do...
Plus, did you notice the crown in the background?
Plus, did you notice the French writing: Toujours Frais?

1. That mug is probably NOT made in North America, thus it's manufacturer would probably have wanted to make one product for both markets.
2. That crown and the red background is recognizable as being the image of a phrase that seems to have caught the imagination, of late:
Image
If doing a Google search is enough "evidence" it would seem that the phrase has been usurped worldwide!
3. The founder of Tim Hortons was a Canadian hockey great, so I'm betting that out of respect for him and his roots, that phrase is on all cups, eh?

p.s. Oh, ye of little faith! :P !!
