“I didn't want to choose one world. I wanted to be part of both. I didn't want to see only one side of the sky. I wanted to see it all.”

Monthly Bake Off! The monthly Bake Off! is designed to make you bake or cook something! You have a whole month to plan what you'd like to do and there are various ways in which you can win some prizes.
This month the theme is 'Bread.' You can interpret this how you wish! I certainly didn't bake these rolls from scratch but used a packet mix (cheating but oh so tasty!) and got a little creative with how I arranged them. It would be good to include the recipe in your commets, or a link to the recipe if you took inspiration from elsewhere. It will help with regards to the prizing criteria listed below too...
- Entries must follow the rules of Still Life Photography - no body parts!
- One entry per person please!
- Entries must be your own work.
- Entries must have minimal photo-manipulation
- Stick to the theme but interpret it how you wish!

November contest: Abstract and Surreal.Here we are again with a new theme for November's photo contest!
This month is Abstract and Surreal month in CRPhotography, which means
that there will be interviews, articles and features related to the theme.
Also, the winners of October's contest will be announced in the middle of November.

Abstract and Surreal, which includes photos from the category Photography > Abstract and Surreal: http://www.deviantart.com/browse/all/photography/abstract/. Don't forget to check out our Abstract and Surreal gallery to get inspired! Some examples are:
I came to deviantART looking for an outlet to share my literature work. Imagine my surprise when I look back now and find myself, eight years later, a Photography Community Volunteer and an avid Photographer. In fact, I've just spent a year taking a handful of Photos every day as part of the 365 challenge. If you want to talk to me about motivation, inspiration, finding things to Photograph and general 'sticking at stuff' then do please give me a shout!
I started off three years ago as the Abstract and Surreal Photography CV, I then took on Conceptual as well and now I cover General Photography along with 3wyl. My every day work, like so many of us here, is unrelated to Art almost completely.
I'm about to embark on a career as a Care Manager for my local council. I just finished studying a degree in Social Policy and Criminology and I'm about to move into my first house with TouchedD! In my spare time (whenever that is) I like to explore the world with TouchedD, poke dead things with a stick and take my dog who has naughty feet, for walkies.
