    The picture by @neja is very nice but is it supposed to mean resolution...? This competitions are cool but it's like you can submit... whatever you want?

    @saidseni, i'm thinking coz it's New Years resolutions, and sparklers are generally associated with sparklers.. Check out my eternal New Years resolution,www.lomography.ru/homes/erinwoodgatesphotography/photos/123… I took this photo awhile ago but was ashamed to put it up but in the light of every second persons resolution being the same as mine i've decided it's time..

    I am very happy with myself, and what my new year resolution is, would be a home for me and my partner. A place in nature where we can be ourself and enjoy our life together. It migh take a long time before it is reality as we are both a bit young, but this is what i want to aim towards this year :)

    one day we will live in a house as idyllic as this one
