Found this: Sherpet Health Update Thread

oh noes!!!

I have a great pic I took on the weekend but I won't have time to go shooting in the next 48 hours.
Shot was taken 06/02.

Any chance we could open the date a bit? After all, we want to send our best to Sherp.

Otherwise, I will submit it anyhow and take the DQ later. :( I'd rather not abstain from this particular challenge.

You know you're not allowed to do that, right? Why would you submit something that will only get DQ'ed? The rules say:

"I submit that my entry was based on photograph(s) taken with a digital camera on or between Jun. 4th 2012 and Jun. 5th 2012."

Don't do that, Keiran. Just go for a short walk or something with your cameraphone if necessary or visit a flower shop briefly.

Wrong title here. Should be: Flowers for Sherpet :) Two days isn't much, but luckily I had some flowers in the house.

If this were a regular week long challenge I would delete my submission, but I will keep it in just because it is for Sherpet. I hope I am not the only one who feels score wise it is going to be low, but scores don't really matter this time.

There could be a debate whether the flowers are indeed flowers but I'm only doing this for Sherpet.

Just want to remind folks here... the flower photos are a gift to Sherpet and everyone who takes part is doing a kind and sweet thing for her.

However, the VOTES on the photos have nothing to do with our honored guest and I'm sure she would agree that vote on the photos as they are and using whatever your regular judging methods might be. Don't up the votes because it's a special challenge -- that does nothing of value.

Enjoy them and hopefully she and Peter will... But vote the same as you always would.

I would have loved to have found some of the flowers on my list but alas none were in season or they did not carry them. I did find something that hopeful captures some of the beauty, lines, and shapes that Sherryl captures so beautifully in her nature photography. It is my hope that it brings a smile to you ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Sherpet

Oh, I don't know.
While I understand your viewpoint,
I plan to use the high end of my keypad on this one.

Here are some flowers for Sherpet. Actually taken during the speed challenge dates, but discovered too late the camera date is incorrectly set a date earlier than actual, so missed the chance to post with everyone else. Posting here in the spirit of appreciation and encouragement.

It was a rushed job at the last minute, but I'm in. This is one challenge I definitely didn't want to miss.

I'm in as well. Anything for Shez.

Woohoo. I tried to be Number 300, but could not.
Had to settle for being #9 way back in 2006, instead.

Neat lady, our Shez.

I'm doing alright. Wish I were back here under better circumstances but when my husband told me what the new speed challenge was and why I just had to jump in and support Sherpet. She more than deserves it. Although I sure wont be winning any ribbons with my submisson. I didnt use good equiptment or even remember how to use photoshop. At all. It's definately not like riding a bike. But hopefully it brightens her day.
