I like the last one a lot. I have to learn to get right in there and fill the frame. I always want pictures to give too much context or something.

Wow. I can't even pronounce some of the words he could spell! I noticed he goes to a public school. In my experience spelling bees are dominated by students who are home schooled. It is nice to see our public institutions being represented. Maybe this indicates a rising level of educatio nin the publis school system (I can only hope, as my daughter starts school in 2 years.. )

So Allion, how come your signature contains a spelling error?

appoggiatura ... one of my favorite "music major" words. We get a really strange little Italian vocabulary.

My signature is supposed to have an error.
I want to not spell as well for a change, as well as a little joke

I'm ok with the misspelling, but if you don't unsplit that infinitive there's going to be trouble, young man.

Her entire Romanian village used to gather in the church for prayers while Nadia Comaneci performed in 76, 80, 84 Olympics.

Back in India this year, I witnessed the same zealotness in home town of one of the US SpellingBee participant.

Before that, I used to woder "Why there are 4 Indiain kids in first 5 positions in SpellingBee"

I like the chess player.
The narrow depth of field really helps to make the boys face stand out from the background clutter.

Mind if I set the points and repost it?
