Do we want to do a May Challenge ?

Post Mon Apr 24, 2017 12:36 am


I think you will agree April's 30 Things has been successful, due perhaps to the easing of rules, or just that we were ready to resume the fun that has been enjoyed and shared over the years.
This being the last week of the month the question is do we want to continue and if so are there any suggestions...remember it's open to all so don't be shy. :)
Post your suggestions here, please.

Yes, I think we should keep it going…even though I am way behind with shooting, posting and commenting but that's just because life is rather hectic at the moment.
I was thinking of a challenge which would test our skills - open subject matter but maybe using a prime lens one day, shallow depth of field another, portrait, landscape, etc. I'll draw up a list in the next few days.

A skill challenge would be good and something different. Let me know if you want some suggestions for your list.

Sorry that I have missed most of April's Challenge. As most of you already know, my Mother passed away.
I wouldn't mind doing a technical/skill-based challenge. Let me know whatever you decide and I'll try to join in.

I like the idea of using one from the archives occasionally as we did this month.

I don't see any problem with using the occasional archive shot or taking a batch of photos at the one time.

A great idea, the list has its challenges but that's all to the good. Thank you, Mairéad!
