    As America just celebrated a norther Birthday, I though it might be fun to see if we have any creative shutter bugs? So I am proposing a little fun contest. That will end Next Monday at Midnight.

    Subject: your Emerson Knife, or knives.

    Theme: Patriotic, Red White Blue, or Happy Birthday U.S.A.

    I will pick a Best Photo at the end, and the winner will at this point have bragging right only.

    **Best part is the Judge is a retired photojournalist, so I have done this before, and am hope we have some creative people in this group. Let's have some fun.

    I so want to do this too. I cannot think of a single idea and I cannot motivate myself to get the camera. I will though, I will and soon. I'm a yankee doodle dandy..

    Not an entry, just trying to add to the thread. My country is red, white and blue.

    The last time I wore this uniform was July 19, 2009. Any Marine knows the Corps wasn't always fun or easy, but I still miss it. Semper Fi to all the Bladeforums Devil Dogs.

    You're image is great, you caption information tells your story well, and makes point with me. Job well done.

    What is more American that a U.S. Marine. Now did out your Dress Blue if you still have them, and get ready for the next Birthday Party on November 10, 2014. Number 239 I think.

    I still have my dress blues, they would probably be a little snug if I tried to put them on. You are correct, 239 years this year

    Everything except the wings were my step-dad's. I don't know where the wings came from, but they weren't his (bad eyes).

    Oh man, my entry sucks. Pennypincher, can I have more than one entry? I had that basic background set up for something else and then remembered this contest.

    I wanted to show you guys the black on red hardware too so I grabbed that ribbon and took three quick shots. I see what Pennypincher means about a theme a little better thanks to the other awesome entries so far. I'll do another entry if I could.

    I know mine is no effort now.

    Enter away more images the merrier, I see three images I like. But am not say which one is a bell ringer. Too bad I am not offering some prize I am sure there would be a few more entries.
