Great shots! I wish I'd been able to participate; time just wouldn't allow it. I need to fix that; there hasn't been enough photography in my life the last year or so.

I think my favorites are "Yellow Day II," "Feeding Feral Cats," "Ice," and "Door Knocker."

Great project, Jay!

Weird. They load here. Not to belabor the obvious, but have you tried a shift-reload or a browser restart?

I have reloaded/restarted, but it may be where they are linked from and my work network so no worries. I'll look at this from home and see if that is the case.

Some great images, there. I think my favourite has to be "Walking amongst shadows & art".

I wish I'd seen this earlier. It would have been fun to participate.

I didn't respond, but a day or two later I started taking photos. I'm now attempting to post something artistic every day, whether photos, writing, music, or some other medium I haven't thought of yet. I've been having a lot of fun with my camera and getting some awesome shots. Thanks for the inspiration!
