Make sure you're sitting down.

They want $399.99 per year to host pics on a 3rd party site and block any pics if you don't sign up

Re: August Photo Challenge - Life's a Beach

Disagree alas. Woolyback and Yorky have voted more than once thus are invalid.

Alfbranch got 10 votes, so should be the winner..............

Unless you know something I don't..
