This is a wonderful opportunity to look at the world from a child’s perspective using your imagination. It’s also a good opportunity to practice the techniques we’ve been discussing this past year. OF NOTE: Panoramas are welcome in any category.

Please note: for those who missed the slideshow and have trouble interpreting this quote (as the test panel did), there are three photos on Sharon Lyons’ Flickr account titled “Time is him” that will give you an idea of what you can do with this quote.

on towards the Wild Wood, which lay before him low and threatening,

like a black reef in some still southern sea.” – Kenneth Grahame, The Wind In The Willows
