Thank you to everyone who rooted for their favorite photos from yesterday’s first round of semifinalists! It’s really fun to read all the different perspectives on what makes a winning photo, and your input is certainly helping me narrow down the candidates.
Today I’m thrilled to present (again, in no particular order), the next 10 of 20 semifinalists for the Mochimochi Photo Contest. Please help out again by campaigning for your favorites!
After hearing your thoughts on the second batch, I’ll have the difficult job of selecting the 10 finalists. Then it’s up to you all again, when we’ll have the official vote at the end of the week.
And without further ado…
UPDATE 12/12/07: I’ve taken the images in this post down to save bandwidth, but you can still click on the links to see the photos!

Little did we know that after we go to bed, our Bobs while away the nighttime hours roasting Q-tip marshmallows and telling ghost stories…

The annoyed look on Mouse’s face is just precious.
Good job Ninjabun! by Knittygirlie
Boy, this Ninjabun’s got more tricks up his sleeve than anyone suspected (least of all the unfortunate wrangled carrot)!

An excellently framed scene in which Thurman the Evolving Punk reflects back on his slimy origins.
Festive Mochimochi Land Reindeer by tezzcan
This tiny reindeer couldn’t be more decked out for the holidays. (I bet he’s already got all of his Christmas shopping done too, the little brat!)
