Cool August Photo Challenge

AUGUST PHOTO CHALLENGE
Essentially, a topic is chosen, and pictures can be taken based on that theme and any interpretation of it. Please keep it PG13.

Submitted photos will be posted, and at the end of the month, votes will be cast and a winner will be chosen.

The winner of the current month will then get to choose the theme for the following month.

This month's topic/theme is "FOOD and/or DRINK", as chosen by July's winner, Sha.
(NOTE: This theme is flexible...photos may be taken of just food, just drink, or of the two together.)

- all entries must be submitted between August 1st and 25th
- voting will run from August 26th to 30th
- please post all submissions in this thread only


Enjoy!


STANDARD RULES APPLY:
1) Pictures should be taken between August 1st and 25th.
2) Maximum of 2 entries per person.
3) Each photo should be an original that has been taken by the individual entering the challenge.
4) Maximum width for each picture is 1000 pixels.

Thanks, Jason. I had several others in mind, but this seemed to be one of the easier themes...especially during summer.
Hope it gathers support for the challenge.

Gimmie my baby back, baby back, baby back ribs. I made these a couple of weeks ago on my dad's BBQ, which is hard because even on the lowest heat my dad's BBQ still shoots up flames...lol. But they tasted amazing!

(Not certain why it says you edited my post, Daniel, haha...didn't notice that before.)

Thanks for the compliment, or more appropriately, "Grazie, grazie."
Still hungry for those ribs on the barby, though.
