    Topics for the Monthly Shooting Assignment

    So here is my idea for how we might run this.

    I will start a thread on the 15th of the month asking for a suggested topic. On the 25th of the month, we will select the topic that we can start posting on the following first of the month. For example, on July 15, I post asking for the topic for August 1st. On July 25th we decide and can start posting to the gallery under the name "August 2006 MSA".

    How does this sound?

    Should I select the topic (from the suggestions made by members) or should it be decided by the majority?

    In the meantime, we need to get started on the topic for August 1, so let's not get too caught up on how this is run.

    My suggestion for the August gallery is to photograph your favorite chair.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't see anything that would preclude taking a photo with your butt in the chair. Might be a nice alternative.

    There was, at one time, something like this on APUG, but it died due to lack of interest. I'll see if I can find it in the archives. I kind of like the idea myself...

    I think it was called the APUG challenge.

    So, are we okay with the August MSA being "your favorite chair"?

    If so, we can start posting them on August 1st. I will send out reminders.

    I think you should pick the topic from the suggestions. It will take too long if you want the majority to decide. I think that's what happened with the APUG Challenge.

    No problem with the choice - but I thought we were to throw in ideas through the 25th of the prior month and then dave picks one?
