figurative = a figurative word or phrase is used in a different way from its usual meaning, opposite to literal
literal = basic or original meaning

jic someone else didn't have a dictionary handy :-)
I'll put my thinking cap on. Fair to say my first interpretation of the phrase 'close to home' was not the same as yours HD, perhaps a cultural difference.

Rego, let's not complicate this tooo much ;-) . The intention of 'Close to home' was to widen the subject options for the first contest and not limit it to say just sunsets, close to home may be the tree/flower in your back garden, the landscape from your window, or something that is close to your heart(home) like children, animals etc.

Good luck:D

no probs, I just hoped the definition might be helpful. I had to look it up and 'figurative' didn't mean what I thought it meant.

We can expect an entry from you then Rego ? It can be a pic of your good looking cows too. :wave:

Next contest will be more specific. We are still getting out feet wet and trying to see what works best for CT peeps.

We still have room for more entries ,come folks don't be shy .

I have seen great pics posted by at least 95% of the members on here and the other 5% never have posted a pic . ;-)

So lets get some more entries for this weeks contest !!!!

Don't make me beg, bribe or blackmail, but I am not above doing that either . :P :lol:

Btw I am calling out the ladies ,we have yet to get one entry from a female CT member ..

it's done. Let me know if it's a bit small, I could have chosen the larger format but had forgotten how small 'medium' is.
