    :D Weekend Prototype Photo Challenge "Spikes" Ends Monday, July 12th.

    I've been keeping the topics very broad lately to try and encourage more participation but this week lets give you guys a real challenge by making it more specific. :)


    **Please read all rules as they may be different from previous weeks!**
    If you notice a typo, error, or confusing statement, please notify user Mark Watson immediately for correction and clarification.
    Prototype Photo Challenge Topic: "Spikes"
    1. Challenges are open to everyone, have fun!!

    2. The entry deadline is Midnight (UTC -11), Monday, July 12th. Late entries will be accepted up until the official "Time's up!" post within the thread.

    3. For photos to be eligible they must be taken between Friday July 9th and Monday, July 12th.
    Please use the challenge as a motive to take a new photographs!

    4. Any posts with images taken before the commencement of the challenge will not be included in the poll and may be moved to the cutting room floor thread.
    - Ensure dates and times on your camera are correct. -

    5. Only ONE image per participant so please choose the images carefully.

    7. Though not required, commenting on other peoples pictures is encouraged.

    8. Please use the Cutting Room Floor thread for related but ineligible images.

    9. A clever and distinctive title for your image helps identify it among voters. (And makes it easier for me when posting the poll ;) )

Voting will last 4 days. You may vote for multiple entries. To do this, you must select all entries for which you wish to vote at once, and then click the submit button.

    Look Ma! No Spikes!

    At Km marker 10.5 south from Kaiserslautern, deep ballast, heavy iron, and concrete ties are more then up to the task of the daily commuter rail traffic. You can't find 18,000 ton coal trains here.

    Isn't it a bit ironic that both of the entries for the SPIKES photo contest feature concrete ties and rail clips?

    Nice photos, both of them. Hard to choose.

    I wish I'd been at Dad's house this weekend. He has a lovely sculpture of a row of dancing girls (a la the Rockettes) that he made from railroad spikes. I'll have to get a pic and share it.
