It is becoming more and more difficult to find new challenges, but this time I have landed on the the theme of People.
People can be found everywhere, engaged in all sorts of activities or indeed in a state of inactivity.
I leave it entirely up to you to capture a person or persons doing, or not doing something. Use your eyes and grab the moment, or set something up...

The start of the holiday season (yes, it has already started!) makes it easier to go around with a camera, looking like a tourist, as I found out yesterday in Oslo doing a day of street photography...no-one took any notice of me pointing my camera everywhere.

Extra brownie points will be awarded for originality and quirkiness.

The rules to which you have to adhere are almost the same as usual:


1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. All images must be uploaded by 8pm on Wednesday
4. All uploads must be B&W (or sepia toned)
5. Only one upload per member
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week
8. Have fun, but hey, be careful out there!

Walking along the Prom this morning gave several opportunities but the last one I took reminded me so much of a visit to the Salford Lowry Gallery.

A bit of an aggressive edit to try and get closer to how his paintings looked and quite happy with the final LS Lowry Inspired result.

So now back into the garden to enjoy the Easter sun with a glass of wine over lunch....

Just a reminder to one and all, except Dave, that you have until Wed. 20:00 to get your potentially winning entry in.

On a point of protocol, over in the macro group we are ll minions, apart, of course, from IL (all hail!), so should we who belong to this b&w group be referred to as minstrels...?

I understand photos of prints are not eligible. Is this correct?

There you go then...I'm in. Smile

I don't think there was any funny business going on here, but it did look odd - as if the guy at the back was trying to stop the guy on the bike driving away on it! Well, it made me look, laugh and, most importantly, 'snap' anyway.... Wink Blush

It don't say owt in't rules, Jack, but the real meaning of the theme was to capture real people first-hand, not via another medium, if you get what I mean?

Now I'm trying to think of something humorous around Ouiji Boards and crystal balls.... Wink

I hope the use of Minstrels with a capital 'M' and your use of the word 'yum' means that they are in fact some kind of confectionery and not a comment from a closet cannibal?

Just over 24 hours to go and I am still looking for more entries. Put down whatever you are doing and get on with the task in hand of snapping humans.

Indeed, self-incrimination would be just too stupid...

Just under five hours and the countdown continues. Plenty of room inside for more passengers!

I've spent much of my break away from people - a few days staying home and others in the woods Smile I thought I might find something on my way through town yesterday but boring, boring, boring - nothing remotely inspiring.

So you have my desperation snap whilst sitting on the bus home Smile
