Due to an oversight on my part, the announced Picture of The Year was ineligible since it was not original content. I sincerely apologize to @[email protected] for my mistake. I often do things from my mobile and I missed that the original post was marked Not OC. A bit of egg on my face here.
We have a tie between second place, please take this week to vote in the tie break runoff. Same deal, downvotes will not matter.

I'm gonna level with you guys. I made a view tracker for my website in PHP and I'm chasing a really obscure bug where it wipes out all the accumulated views but it's like one of those 1 in 5000 chance bugs so now I'm just uploading this here to try and accumulate some views so it might happen while I'm looking at it... Sorry; enjoy the picture
