Cool topic Mash, and some great images. Phil, loving that selfy. What are you up to in that one; some kind of distillation?

Here's an oldie of mine. Hopefully i'll be able to find a new subject to shoot in the next week or so:

A "Churrero" is a "Churro" maker. Click on the image to go to my flickr stream and all will be revealed ;) (but yeah, a churro is a type of fried doughnut, usually eaten with hot chocolate).

Carrying on the food vendor theme... anyone for a zebra burger?

LOL, I hope not! I didn't sample any of his offerings; I was hoping for for a panda burger, but couldn't see any. It's probably not the season for it.

Cheers for clearing that dodgy post :)

I'm trying to guess what you're doing here and the best I can come up with is "operating the meth lab". If that's not the case, what is it?

Could somebody advise me on that? It is a monthly contest?

December is usually slow so the month seems fine with me. Limits are up to you since you have to judge.

You can have:

Deadline: January 1, 2013 Entries 5 / 7/ 10 how ever many you want to look at for judging.

I am sorry for the slow reply, but I was out winter camping for several days.
Well, I really liked Meadowlarks images from Asia and the shots from food services, but my favorite shot was Patrish's final shot of the bartender. The lighting is spot-on, as was the framing and timing.
Image

So, Patrish . . . I hand things over to you.

Happy holidays from Beijing.
