Picture of the Month: September 2006

Welcome to September's Picture of the Month poll!

To emphasize that the Picture of the Month polls are different from other polls around the forum, and that the emphasis should be on the pictures rather than the royal houses for which they represent, instead of the country name, the pictures are embedded into the poll choices this month. To see the image in its full size, click on the thumbnail to enlarge.

This month, our Picture of the Month representatives had help in selecting their images with a small committee of their choosing. Below, you can see each royal house's representative (in bold) followed by their chosen committee members.

Belgium: Danielle - Dennism, Adry

Spain: mtbcm - LaChicaMadrilena, Elsa M., Anna_R

Jordan: Humera - Little_star

Morocco: Humera - Warren

Brunei: Humera - Warren

Monaco: tbhrc - Ianna, Michelle, Iceflower

Japan: mandyy - kei893265, merampo

Norway: purple_platinum - Larzen, LaMinka

Sweden: purple_platinum - Lena, GrandDuchess

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, Maxie

Britain: ysbel- Avalon, Elspeth, Warren

Denmark: soCal girl - Mandy. norwegianne, Lasse Pedersen

The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on October 22. During these three weeks, we ask that no one state whom they've voted for so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. For the final week of the month, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

Please note that the pictures in the above poll have been posted in a random order, first by their shape (portrait or landscape), and do not reflect any personal feelings of The Moderating Team.

I just wanted to point out two things that amused me: First, that in Salma's birthday pictures, the banner reads "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" in English, rather than Arabic. And that the dog with Princess Victoria is named Walter. Walter the Swedish lab and Jordanian royals celebrating with English-language decorations. Just thought that was cute :)

William looks so comfy with a baby. He's got such a natural fatherhood glow. And I totally thought that the dolphin with Albert was real. Oops, wow. So many wonderful photos, I can't choose, ack!

Well, I see that Sweden has chosen a new way to compete with all the cute toddlers who show up every month: with a photo of a cute dog! I suppose it was only a matter of time...

All the pics are worthy, as ever. But this time, I was very, very sure about my vote and I didn't have a single doubt concerning it.

Yes, we're getting it ready this weekend. The first of the month fell in the middle of the work week so it was impossible to get out the poll then.
