After choosing this theme yesterday, I started taking portrait pictures of my niece and nephew, but then I thought, lets try a mirror.

I still don't get it? the sentence it makes to sense :/ Maybe "He's looking at you?" :s elaborate? 'member, english isn't my maiden language so, be gentle.

blocked at work,

What I mean is, have an alternative for that sentence? I don't quite understand it? Is it like " Here's to rappehs 200k posts?" "here's to the newly weds?"

Don't worry I'm struggling to really understand the theme on this one. Watching the video the words that come to mind are love, sadness, goodbye. I haven't seen the movie so I am literally taking the 30 second video for what it is, I don't know any back story.

This is the first one I have literally not had any idea's come to mind from the title.

Don't think so hard about this one, just think of it as a photo of someone theme. Use the word "Looking" as literal. Looking can be just a portrait or you can also get creative.

The theme sounds grammatically incorrect. Should be "He's looking at you, kid" not "Here's" - just doesn't make sense.

I'll enter this evening.

Right to clear things up, it doesn't necessarily have to be a child that the camera is pointed at, it could capture the 'looking' aspect of the theme too. It's all about the expansion of the theme and picking out each detail of the sentence as if it were an essay question.

Since I now have a bit more free time I'll be hoping to actually enter this month, but the voting thread may be delayed since I'll be moving out on the weekend of the end of this month's competition.

EDIT - Going to just try copying and pasting the image URL.

I don't get to take many photos (company camera), but this week I was doing some timelapse stuff and grabbed this one which could fit the theme. (hosted on G+)
