Just out of interest, does the photo have to stand alone, or can it be annotated?
I mean, the Word Association thread is generally accepted to need no comments.

Yes, I'm British and we like rules.
Makes it more fun to break them in general.

But not here, that would be rotten manners.

given the context of the previous conversations, will penguins *still* be a surprise, or not?

Annotated? You mean like add a comment? Sure - no problem with me. There's really not any other rules except to try and follow the theme. And no NSFW photos. Also, I think it would be more fun for them to actually be photos you take - not just googled.

Depends on the penguin photo - lol. And it's not surprise - it's Unexpected. So, like a penguin rollerblading. :P

Thirded.
And I will try not to include anything that needs an explanation, because a picture is supposed to be worth a thousand blahblahblah something.

I would say another rule in addition to taking it yourself is that you have to take it during the time period of the challenge. No digging through the personal archives.

Multiple entries? Or one pic per player, per theme?

IMHO - I would say start with one. This may change depending on the response we get this month (even though we started late).

Actually, I've been thinking about it and I think one picture is too redistricting, I mean, this is just a challenge, not a competition. Don't go nuts, now, and flood the thread. Maybe 5-10 limit?

What do you guys think? This is a photocracy, not a photatership
