Best of Photo Challenge: Sustenance

Posted by Darlene Bouchard — 14 Dec 2010

Around the holidays we tend to reflect on what we are grateful for and the people who are less fortunate then ourselves. Since this is on everyone's minds, we asked to capture something in our own life that you're grateful for and that supports you in a fundamental way for this photo challenge.

It's no surprise that many of you captured what some consider to be "the simple things is life" in your images. If it ends up that you don't get what's on your wish list this year for Christmas, we hope that maybe you can look back to this photo challenge and think of what you do have and feel grateful regardless.

Here are some of our favorite images from Photo Challenge: Sustenance:
