    Upcoming Photo of the Week : Talk Like A Pirate Day : Theme

    This year, Talk like A Pirate Day happens on Friday September 19th.

    For a bit o' fun and frivolity, we here at Ausphotography, each year, hold a Photo o' t' Week based around Pirates and t' high seas.

    So this post be just a bit o' advice that an upcomin' photo o' t' week competition will have a pirate/nautical theme for members t' really have some fun with.

    There might even be a few prizes t' give away. Don't be gettin' t' excited, you will not be gettin' your hands on our rum stash though.

    Just remember, you're not an alcoholic if you drink rum first thing in the morning. You're a pirate
