June contest: My backyard
Let's take advantage of the long days this month - the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is June 20 - and rediscover beauty that's close to home.
Walk out your door and photograph something in your yard or around your house or apartment building. It can be something as sublime as a butterfly on a flower or as gritty as graffiti on a dumpster.
Your image will be judged on composition, lighting, and creativity.
Your photo must be taken this month, and it must be taken outdoors. As usual, one image per photographer.
Thanks for your submission!
We'll approve and post your submission as fast as we can.
