Celtic Challenge 2007

A Message from Ruth:

Hello friends,
I'm on the scrounge again. This time I'm asking you for pictures suitable for the Isle of Man's entry for the Celtic Challenge.
I plan to arrange a small group to choose the entry during the week beginning 9th September. I am away off the island from Sunday 19th August until 2nd Sept.
So please could you look out a few 'jump-out-at-you' images and let me know how to get them from you, between 2nd and 9th Sept. SLIDES and mono are particularly difficult to get enough of, there is no age limit, and no size restriction on prints.(Not bigger than 20 x 16 though as they won't fit in the box.)
Thanks in advance for your support,
