First off, CONGRATULATIONS to everyone for submitting a wonderful variety of images full of life, humor, character and warmth...
I knew this week's challenge would be impossible to judge, so please know that any one of the top images could have been chosen for 1st place.

In fact, I would first like to give a special "Shout Out" to those that submitted a terrific "collection" of multiple images, making it even more difficult to single out just one:

RM2: All 3 shots are just great, and made me smile from ear to ear.
Erichmangl: My favorite collection of street shots, perfectly timed and perfectly candid.
Sandiwhi: A trio of silly and fun shots.
Unjay: Sweet, innocent, fun...
Photomary: A fantastic pair of images.
Agroni: Great eye, great timing.
JimCritchley: Great international warm-feeling fun.
Lawrenceang: I am still nodding my head and smiling.
Kalamazoo: Offbeat, original, outstanding street work.
Cits_4_Pets: A truly wonderful trio of shots.

And now to the 10, yes, 10, HONORABLE MENTIONS:





















And now for the TOP 5 HONORS:

5th PLACE: "Kitty TV" by pstubley. The essence of catdom... A purrfectly wonderful shot, perfectly titled...


4th PLACE: Dali Watching by Erichmangl. Fantastic vision, fantastic timing, fantastic street shot!...


3rd Place: Big Rat by Cits_4_Pets. That is one big rat, and her expression is even bigger. Priceless!


2nd Place: "A Tea Party" by Kirstenmary. Truly a classic, classic image! Caught just in the nick of time... Brilliant!


1st PLACE: "United Hands" by McGarva. It just all came perfectly together here. Timing, expression, the boy, the bubble, the hands, the celebration, the clarity and quality of the image, the works... Fantastic capture!


CONGRATULATIONS, McGarva, I pass the honor and the responsibility of hosting the next challenge to you!

Thanks again, everyone, for your wonderful submissions...

Aloha,
GP

Thank you for 3rd place. The night before I posted the shot, I had found out that Geri, the little old lady in the picture had died. It was quite a shock. Thank yo for the the Costco Coach Sleeper HM! I am not usually a people shooter so was very happy!
