JLand Photo Shoot #127 participants (Subject: Old)

                           
                              JLand Photo Shoot #127
                                     Subject: Old            

We had an excellent turnout this week. 

27 people entered from public blogs and 2 entered from private blogs.
 
We also had 3 people who submitted photos taken by someone other than themselves, and asked to be included.  I included their entries also, because they fit the subject matter. 
 
I'd like to say hi and thank you to our first time players!  It's great having you.  And thanks to all of you who have been playing faithfully for a long time.
 
You all captured the subject matter this week in spectacular ways.  Many of you chose very poignant items to photograph.  Others chose fascinating items.  What I liked most about your photos is that they all evoked strong emotion.
 
Finally, I would ask you, if you can, to please try to visit each others entries, just as you would want others to visit yours!  :)

  4. I have quickly viewed all the entries this week but didn't take time to leave comments. There are some great photos! With the list coming out so late I just didn't have time tonight. It's a work night for me and that alarm goes off at 4:15am no matter how late I stay up. I have a super busy week ahead and doubt if I'll have the time to come back to leave comments. I'll try to make time but if not, my apologies to everyone. You all did a great job!

I myself don't take very good ones and new so I don't think I should be in advanced so wanted to make sure it is alright for beginner entry. Thank you for your time doing this. Blessings, Janie
