Not everyone has a sense of humor, apparently.

Last week’s photo assignment - your funny moments - only yielded seven entries. That’s a low point for us, so if you have an idea for a weekly assignment you’d want to participate in, please let us know at

A sincere thanks to those of you who did tickle our funny bones this week. We love the dogs, dummies and babies.

Congratulations to Helen Fortner: Her photo of the ghostly peppers will appear in Saturday’s People section of The Post and Courier. Pick up a copy to read more about her accidental - and timely - discovery.

The next assignment: The art of nature.

The rules:

- Send one (1) photograph to by noon on Tuesday, Oct. 22. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken.

- If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper, it must be at least 1,500 pixels. Our editors will select which photo will appear each week. We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.
