and the next theme is....CHARM

I'm a fan of intangibles. I appreciate the ambiguity of a theme that allows us to be inspired in many different directions and conjures up many different possibilities in our choice of photographic subjects. For me, "charm" is just one of those things. It has the same basic definition and a definite connotation most could agree on, but it also is something that not everyone can really put their finger on in terms of who and what has that charm. Just what is it that makes someone or something charming? How might someone's photography charm you? And then there is the other way to look at it, as a noun. A special part of a bracelet or necklace or trinket that we hold dear.

So, muses, show us YOUR charm! Show us what you think is charming...what charms you? And now I have to stop saying "charm" because it doesn't sound like a word anymore!

Maybe it is an actual charm...

Whatever it is, we look forward to seeing your CHARM photos in our Flickr pool.

And remember to join us tomorrow when we start musing on Water -  as always, on the last day of the theme we'll be holding our usual linky party where you can add your own links and show us how you've interpreted Water.

happy snapping,
cara of cararosephotos

So many interpretations...so little time! Off to muse on this.

Interesting concept for a theme, and beautiful examples. I took one yesterday that might fit perfectly. Something I've been meaning to ask -- how does Mortal Muses feel about posting older photos to the theme pool?

I really like this idea too... my imagination is sparking in lots of different directions already! (And SuperDewa - as a former muse, I can tell you that photos from the archive are more than welcome, although I'll leave it to the current crop of lovely muses to confirm that...)
