At first glance I was like, WTF? and nearly skipped over it - but then I took a second look and it really drew me in. I think it captures the spirit of the challenge and frankly, the more I look at this - the more it becomes my favorite photo of the challenge. I would hang it on my wall. (which, ironically, is currently empty)
