So, I was selected to be Captain and I wasn't told until this weekend. Funny - I was always one of those kids who would be picked almost last when it came to choosing teams at school. And I have no experience in the Olympics...

Anyway, here are the team members:

Hi everyone...Congrats John you could be the saving grace of this weeks challenge!
Sorry to report but the "Weathered" down here in Melbourne is proving very "average" for this time of year.
However I am looking forward to the next set of challenges.
Good luck to you all!

I've got one in recipe,food.
I'm pretty sure it will do better than my weathered shot (can't get much worse!).
Which one is everyone else going to enter?

Recipe, beverages.

I'm in "food recipes" and feeling a lot better about it than my "other" entry which is still very average.
07/14/2008 07:22:33 PM · #21
I'm in the Recipes - Beverages.

Took some photos tonight... but am not at all happy with them... well... not entirely true, there was one but due to a combination of forgetting to change the format from SRAW and some heavy cropping, the image was too small, and we all know how poorly small images do in the challenges, so I've opted to give this week a miss. Sorry guys.
