I've been entering the monthly photo contests on the Boston Globe's RAW amateur photo page for a few months, and this month I'm in the group of top 25 finalists -- yay! They have a theme every month, and September's theme was jobs. The first photo below is the one I entered in the contest, and the others are ones I took on the same theme. It's a challenge to ask strangers if you can take their picture and have it come out looking natural. Try it!
