Challenge Idea

Since I have a good camera now, I want to take lots of pictures

I noticed that this forum isn't that busy and I had an idea. We have a photography group at work that posts a different theme every month. It's not a competition there, just a challenge. I thought that it might be a good idea to use the same theme and do a challenge here.

We can do a competition, or not, up to those that want to participate. If we do, I would be happy to "run" it, I just need to know how - lol.

Let me know what you all think!

For me, it really depends on the themes.
I love to take pics, and I'd love to see others with the same theme (without the element of competition because you know, losing and all that) and there are remarkable image capturers on here.

I don't know that my tiny corner of the world would yield many opportunities.
That would be the only reason I wouldn't participate.
I'd certainly be an avid viewer if nothing else.

The photo contests were fun. As soon as Toad made a forum just for them we quit.

Why was that?

I think it was your fault.
It always seemed to be your fault back then.

It looks like you have at least five entries, bbro, go ahead and set the theme.

Yeah. Weird how that happened.

It's like that moment during a party where it gets quiet because all the conversations happen to pause at the same time.

Or maybe not.
