I remember something about having a challenge thread with photography, but don't remember it getting started. I guess we were waiting on me. Come on everyone, give me your best shot, or would that be shoot.

I cleaned out my martin houses today, the birds should start arriving soon. Here is a picture of the pole of gourds taken last year on a double rainbow day.

Oh, you don't want to see pictures of what it looks like around here right now. Leaden skies, several inches of snow predicted over the current ice, and ... even I don't want to look at it.

Do the pictures have to be current? Or just something local or interesting?

This was last summer, everything that is green in this picture is brown right now.

I didn't look long for the thread where the challenge was talked about, but I'll see what I find after supper.

Anybody want rules for the challenge? I would think the picture should be one we took, maybe a family member, if you didn't happen to have hold of the camera. What about while on some outdoor activity?

mbuster, here's the thread you're thinking of.

I'm in. I think it should be pictures we take ourselves. Outdoors? Well, I'd be fine with that some other month. There's nothing that says this has to be a one-shot, either; we could do it a few times through the year (or more).

Others? Whaddaya think?

Yes, that was it. I'm game with what ever anybody wants to do.

Off for a scenic bike ride, however scenic the TV is. I'll be on the trainer tonight.

I'd be happy to join, as long as you're not limiting pics of things outdoors. I'd be more inclined to artistic still life.

Cricket may still have something on the burner on this.

I'm good with it being any theme.

Cassie, under the area where you type the text for a new message, click on the Go Advanced button and then click on the paper-clip icon. That will let you select files (pictures) you can upload.
