Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

How about 'Minimalism' as a future theme?

I'm keen to try this myself, and to see what others can produce.

Here's a taster: https://photography.tutsplus.com/art...hy--photo-3914

That's a great idea, Steve, and there are some fantastic examples in the link you provided.

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Out of respect to John, I agree we should give September a miss, and look to October.

What is the theme?

Perhaps the key thing is what is actually involved. It's all right for us lot to sit around 'drinking whisky and rye', but it's obvious that Admin access is needed to control all sorts of things. Even for a simple competition.

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Whisky and Rye, that's a song is it not (a line in one anyway!)

Is access behind the scenes needed? Just a count I would have thought.

We just need a respected member to do the biz I would have thought. If no Senior member is up for it, one of us might be able to run it. A vote perhaps..........

Yep - and 'waiting for 'the Levey to run dry'. Which at this rate the Comp will too. I ask again, I would have thought running a Comp would need Admin type 'powers' ?

Lightbulb Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

I would be most grateful for someone to take on counting "Likes" as I made a complete hash of my first attempt (with the help of my Grandson)

I would have thought an Autumnal theme would suit October, but as my main subject is People, how about "Dressed for the cold"
