    After today's tragedy in Connecticut, it was easy to come up with a theme. Please post pictures that shows the connection between a parent (or grandparent) and their child.

    The rules are as follows (copied from previous challenge thread)

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72-Hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a golden ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for "Your Best Shot: Smiles Challenge."
    And finally I am not allowed to post pics for the purpose of participation in contest but I am going to post two pics as an examples.

    I'll use a snap I took of my daughter and her daughter as my example.

    Thanks for your lovely submissions. I can rate the photography, but I'll turn to an expert (that would be my wife) to help rate the emotional connections. Wonderful stuff so far. I hope more people join us.

    Lacking any children of my own, I am submitting one I took of my niece and brother-in-law at a recent camping trip we were at.
