Frank said he'd do a poll in a few days to vote on the suggestions.

Will try and sort that out today. The decision shouldn't be mine, Les; this is a group thing! If anyone should pick it should be Ailsa who came up with the idea, but I think a poll would probably be fairer.

Tony - Take it easy on the old milk of amnesia, mate! Camera shake wasn't one of the suggestions!

My only suggestion, is that it needs to be a subject that can be done in either B&W or Color (my preference).

"The dead bird does not leave the nest" -- Said by an aging Winston Churchill when told that his fly was open.

Robert one of my favorite quotes and can be used in all sorts of situations ;)

"Light" would get my vote, definitely. The possibilities are limitless.

I have very high regard for Churchill - I've got a book of his quotations on my desk. This is one of my favorites.

Nice !! I bet there are many classics in there as he seemed to have the answer for every occasion.

Okay, so more than a week later, and we still don't have a theme for the February challenge? I've got a Tessar and a bunch of 9x12 cm Fomapan 100 just waiting for something to point them at...

Okay How about a theme around the ever disappraring train stations. Trains used to be the way to travel not so much any more. What so you think ????

I believe in certain countries they would arrest you as a terrorist suspect if they see you around train stations.

Never thought of that. I have been shooting around train stations for years and no one has ever asked any questions. But you are right Canada is different than a lot of countries. My next suggestion would be ghost towns. We sure do have a lot of those around or even the lost of farm land in countries where ever you live. Things like barns are disappearing at a rate faster than most of us care to omit.

Okay, thanks for pointing me toward the (yet another) thread that included the actual decision on the February Challenge. I have an idea already, just have to figure out how to set it up and photograph it (and hopefully not have to figure out how to print it without my darkroom being ready yet). Based on the last one, due date is Feb 10 -- do we just post to the Challenge Gallery?

Okay. Here's a brief rundown of the APUG Challenge situation as of 26 Jan 2005. I'm cross-posting this in all related threads in an attempt to clear up the apparent confusion.

The original APUG Challenge thread (http://www.apug.org/forums/showthread.php?t=7426) was getting too long for easy browsing, so (by request) I set up a specific thread for the January Challenge (http://www.apug.org/forums/showthread.php?t=11505). This was well received, but the timescale was felt to be too short for some people to put something together and the theme was presented more or less as a fait accompli.

To address these problems I started a February Challenge Suggestions thread (http://www.apug.org/forums/showthread.php?t=11606) and, once a goodly number of suggestions had been received, a February Challenge poll (http://www.apug.org/forums/showthread.php?t=11699) so that people could choose what they wanted to do. (I would have combined these two, but I don't think you can turn an existing thread into a poll...).

The situation now is:

January Challenge
Theme - "A self-portrait which says something about where you live"
Closing date - 10 Feb

February Challenge
Theme - "Light can be dark"
Closing date - 10 Mar

All submissions should be posted in the Challenge Gallery (http://www.apug.org/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=508&password=) by the appropriate closing date.

I propose creating a new March Suggestions thread followed by a March poll in a couple of weeks time (unless I lose the will to live in the meantime!). If anyone has any better ideas for how to organise the Challenge then please either PM me or post the suggestions in the original APUG Challenge thread (http://www.apug.org/forums/showthread.php?t=7426). If people would rather someone else organised it, that's fine with me too.
