On Monday, my brother and I launched our second bro-down, a friendly little photographer competition in which we each took eight photos of the same things, put them up on Single Dad Laughing, and you all voted on which were best (without knowing whose were whose). The goal… be the big dawg on top. The king of the camera. El Jefóte.

Well, the results are in… 16 photographs. 10,213 votes. Before the contest we decided winner would be he who had the most total votes. So here we go…

PS. Thanks everybody for voting! This was one of the most fun things I’ve done here on Single Dad Laughing (for me, anyway!), so we’ll definitely be doing it again.

ALSO… What are some ideas you have that we might be able to do for our next Bro-Down?
