Having no "theme" this month makes it both easy and hard. Easy because there should be plenty to choose from but hard because you can only choose one. We're off to a cracking start already - I love what I'm seeing. More please! 8)

Nice simple but very successful composition Kimchi. I sympathise with that dog, after the excesses of Christmas I know exactly how it feels!
