Here it is, the first round of semifinalists in the 2009 Mochimochi Photo Contest! John and I selected 20 photos from the more than 500 entries, and today we’re posting the first 10 (in no particular order, of course).
Starting now we need your help! We need to narrow down the 20 semifinalists to 10 finalists, and you can help us by telling us which of these are your favorites in the comments to this post.
For your consideration:
Slug and Snail Mobile by courtiala
Incredible idea and execution!
When there is no Yahtzee to play… by WyoLibrarian
Oh, Boos love Monopoly. They just add the word “cave” or “belfry” after all the real estate property names!
Disaster strikes the garden patch by wakegu4
I’m glad I’m not that carrot getting attacked by Hansigurumi’s crab. Super action shot!
Top Dog by kathrynivy.com
Better the top dog than the bottom dog, right? An unbelievably beautiful photo. (Anybody else want ice cream now?)
Circle of Bobs by Purple_Heather
Hmm, looks like the Bobs are conspiring…to do something cute!
Bear, Cat, Panda by -claudine-
Turns out all sorts of animals can come in stacking form. Nice mods!
On the Fence by Bitter-Sweet-
The baby colors are perfect for the Pundit Babies. These guys also appear to be moderates.
Snails Want to be Bullets Too by mariannes_stuff
Faster than a speeding snail! (And how in the world did she take this photo??)
Chicken Gang Leader by teekayknits
How I wish I could have been there for this photo shoot! Too fun.
Batty Bats by DutchMoeder
Next time you’re leaf peeping, maybe some of the leaves are peeping at you!
Congratulations to the photographers of these wonderful images!
Which of these photos do you LOVE? Don’t be shy—tell us in the comments! You can name as many of the photos in this post as you want. Soon we’ll post the next 10 semifinalists for you to comment on, then we’ll have the big final vote!
