Last week, after our Photo Weekend in Sacramento, two people submitted images for the assignment. For being the brave, committed photogs that they are, we rewarded their efforts with two complimentary tickets to the Bahamas (not really … I just wanted to make everyone who didn’t submit feel the sting for a second or two).

January 27, 2012  Author:   (20)

If critters don’t speak to you or your camera, then perhaps you’re not the Dr. Dolittle type…or at least in photography terms anyway. That doesn’t seem to be the case with the animal-loving folks who submitted for January’s assignment; “Critters.” We had another huge response from our readers with their images that cross all borders […]
