i just checked again and it says "your neighborhood" so i guess italy qualifies too....dont know why i thought it had to be here?!
i wonder anyway how tight the rules ever are for submissions. im going to shoot some "current" pics this week. they can be considered "...taken specifically for this contest" but most of my entries are old, as are most ive looked at.
i wish i knew the secrets of mimicking breaking waves in a studio but alas, i can only do it the old fashion way. so yes, it's not a street. ive entered shots from italy that arent exactly american too... shhhh
