NEW CONTEST: using the old gray matter

I'm enchanted by shades of gray all the way from the lightest silver through dove and slate and deep into charcoal. And though I love black and white photos, with all their color-removed grays, I love the sight of true gray hues, those that show up in color photographs, even more. And what luck! They're all over Forsyth County.

Your mission: Go gray, in the form of a photo (or more than one) showing something gray taken here in fabulous Forsyth County. The photo can be of anything, and any shade of gray will do.

Specifics:
  • ALL PHOTOS MUST BE ORIGINAL WORKS.
  • You MAY enter more than one photo.
  • Email me the photo(s), and I will upload it/them to this post so all can enjoy.
  • You MAY submit a previously submitted, non-accoladed photo.
  • Your entry constitutes a one time use grant (two if you garner judge praise). You retain ownership of your work.
  • You are solely responsible for any damages arising from your entry, as well as any tax concerns should you win.
  • Entries deemed as inappropriate by yours truly will not be considered.
  • Do not add a signature or watermark to your photo.
  • Contest entries must be received by 5 pm EST on Friday, July 10th 2009.
Judging:
An esteemed judge or two will select one winner. Not a consideration: photographic skill. Your entry will be judged solely on that intangible quality we call je ne sais quoi. (That's a fancy way of saying "Whichever wind blows the judge's skirt up.")

Prize:
A $10 giftcard to Lowe's. They have lots of nails and industrial-looking gray things you can buy.

GOOD LUCK, Y'ALL!
