*Only FIVE *weeks and counting, please contribute!

I will take contribution starting from (now) to *midnight PST Dec 15, 2015*.
*No exceptions.*

It will follow the same format that Jim Shulman and Geoff Hopkinson used
for previous editions. The address to send your contribution is
richard at

This will be a non-profit, not juried/judged compilation of photos by any
interested photographer. Anyone may contribute and any brand of equipment
may be used. Please send photos that you have made during 2015. There will
be no obligation to buy the book which will be published by Blurb and there
will be hardcover, softcover printed versions offered and an eBook for
iPad. There will be a small surcharge only applied for each purchase. For
2015 this will be the Second Harvest Food Bank in the Silicon Valley. While
a 3-bedroom starter home starts at 1.5 million USD in Palo Alto, there are
people who do not have enough to eat, even here.

*Please send two image files, ideally as attachments to one or two  email
messages.* Be aware that some email clients may reduce the sizes of images
within messages by default.

Ideal image files are JPEG files around 2000 to 3000 pixels on the long
side with file sizes of 1 to 2 megabytes. The sRGB color space
will be used when they are reproduced.

The book will be in our usual 10 inches x 8 inches (20x25cm) landscape
layout. Whether in landscape or portrait orientation your images will not
be cropped or altered by the editor. They will be fitted into the standard
image layouts used. The Blurb software will size the images to fit.

For the left hand page that will be a box 2680 pixels wide and 2250 pixels
high with a plain margin or as a full bleed image (with small
overlap of edges) of 2888 pixels wide x 2475 pixels high.

For the right hand page that will be a box 1500 pixels wide x 1796 pixels
high (for a portrait orientation) or 2271 pixels wide x 1588
pixels high (for a landscape orientation). Both right hand page options
leave room for a single caption for both images underneath.

In the text of your email, *please provide a single caption for both
images. *This will be your name, and preferably a title for each
image. You may also like to include details of the equipment or similar
*short *comment. Here is an example:

*Firstname Lastname*  Opposite: 'left image title'  Leica M3, Elmar 50 f/3.5
Above: 'Cats eating sushi' Fujifilm X-E1 XF 18-55, Boston LUG meetup
