    Another thing to maybe think on is the number of entries per photographer. My gut tells me it might be smart to slap on a reasonable limit, so as a) not to drown out folks who have fewer shots and b) to also get people to focus on whittling down the material to the absolute best shots. I don't really see this as much of a problem, but I know that I have a nasty tendency to go overboard, and limits are edumacational.

    Hmm, i'm inclined to go with limit of one entry per person, like in the R/R and Fast Fiction threads. I wonder if this might lead to a slow start with a rush of entries at the end, though if that did prove to be a problem it might be solved by tweaking the duration of future challenges.

    I'm thinking 2-3 photos per person. Since it's a month someone might figure out another idea to use after they've already posted. I'm cool with that.

    My only concern is this thread closing down after five days of inactivity (which tends to happen with member threads)

    Beautiful tats !

    @oldhat-> Regarding the photo challenges, you've got at least one Swiss and Unreal Photographer participation. Perfect timing for me, I'll soon dispose of dedicated time for photography and my recent pictures are really starting to reek.

    I would be more for the 2-3 pictures, It would allow some sequential pictures. Is it weird to expect orginal work ?

    Challenge is set up, people. GO GO GO GO GO!

    @kieran

    If you mean "pictures participants took themselves", then I should say that that's what this challenge is about. I'm not asking people to go on google image search and find something!

    So the Los Angeles Edwardian Ball was this past Sunday, so of course I made the six hour drive out to go to it:

    A friend wrote this to me almost ten years ago. I've kept it on my wall ever since.

    Lately she hasn't been doing well. At all. Really a shell of what she used to be.

    I took this and sent it to her.

    Wandered from my place to Casa Loma today. (Didn't actually go there, though I did take a few shots of their walls.)

    @allana: The last photo from the earlier post is of a shrub that looks familiar to me. I can't remember the name of it (I believe it starts with an S), but it is on the hill leading to the beach at my mom's house, and I think you can make a drink from the fuzzy red stuff. The colors in the photos are very lovely.

    edit for accuracy.

    Thanks, Renee! Too bad the bush was in some stranger's yard or I'd probably be testing out a cup right now.

    I'mma keep flooding the thread 'cause why not?

    Damn, those are some lovely shots. The color balances are just so.

    Meanwhile, day 26: Night.

    So I was taking some pictures for eBay auctions and came across a pretty useful tidbit: the inside of a Lowepro camera bag seems to be pretty darn close to the shade of an 18% gray card. So I took out a spare divider and used it to test exposure, since I don't have a gray card handy (I know): presto, seems like it worked great! Photos needed no adjustment, exposure was dead-on (being colorblind, I can't attest to the color balance). Am I the last person to know about this? Is this a thing?
