January will be my first competition that I'm competing in, and the theme is "A Touch of Red". The example given was a photo of a shark about to attack a surfer, but the focal point happened to be the bright red shorts of the surfer, which takes your attention away from the subject matter. I'd award First Place to whoever actually had a photo like that! Another example given was a monochrome (black and white) photo of a security camera mounted on the side of a building, with a red bra hanging from it. How naughty! However, I didn't want to edit my photos much at all, so this is what I found on my hard drive and submitted, 30 minutes before the midnight submission deadline last night.
This one is titled Awedience. We can only submit two digital photos and I opted for two others. I thought it was too dark, overall. But there is indeed a touch of red!
This one is titled Fourth of July. I know, imaginative name, right?
Here is Wagonfly.

Then we ate on the good Christmas china in the dining room that gets dined in once a year and said our goodbyes.
Then we headed to my mom's house for the real Christmas (sorry Mrs. Taylor!) and what a real Christmas it was. My mom made macaroni and cheese and had cherry pie. I love cherry pie! Let's open the gifts.
What a wonderful Christmas it was. :) Now what am I gonna do with two fire extinguishers?

But first, how about a gander at our competitor's doors?

So my sister moved it to Chuck E. Cheese in Largo, MD. It didn't smell as much as I remembered (like sweaty palms holding tokens for hours), and it wasn't nearly as crowded, probably because it was Wednesday. Go Wednesday!
