    Ok folks, we have to decide what the assignment is going to be. Following is a suggestion for making the choice easier in coming months so here it is.

    1) We start by having someone choose the subject from among the suggestions posted so far (For this session, I'll select a victim to make the first choice )

    2) Once that subject has been chosen, we all photograph, scan and post until the last day of the session.

    3) During the week following the end of posting, the person who chose the current subject will decide which photo they either like best, or fits the subject best and the poster responsible for that photo becomes the new topic selector, nagging motivator for contributions and judge for the next round.

    I can't take credit for this idea as it is in use at another forum, but it works well there, so maybe we could try it here? My thinking is that it eliminates the debate about the choice of subject and gets things under way quickly and positively.

    Please tell me what you think ?? We need to get started on this round.

    cheers

    John,

    You are a saint for taking this on - it must be worse than herding cats!

    So, compliments delivered - what's the subject (or is it subjects, since you're doing two months)?

    Oh, and does "neatness count"?

    Hehehe - trust me when I say that there's nothing saintly about me . I just enjoy seeing the photographs.

    I have a couple of victims in mind as first round choosers/judges, so I'll wait for a couple more days to see if anyone has any objections to the idea and if there are none, then we'll go ahead.

    Just a note : this is not a contest, picking a "judge" (I dislike that title) is simply a method to expedite and provide some variety in the subject selection process.

    Bromo : don't hold your breath ... you'll turn cod-blue and pass out We'll be underway soon - I promise.

    cheers

    No objections here, sounds like a sound plan to me!

    Ok folks .....

    The topic selector, maybe better known as ::

    Judge .... Jury (of one) ... and Executioner for the November/December submissions is ...


    drum roll please ............ (okay - just pretend eh?)


    wait for it .............


    The Blansky - yup - it's true - he's gonna be here IN PERSON (virtually) and you'll be hearing from him shortly.


    The Right Honourable (check that Canajun spelling eh?) Blansky is going to select a topic for the November/December submissions and then he's going to go away and leave us alone until the first week of January 2007 when he will reappear fully swathed in his Judges robes to inform us of his decision as to who will be his Judgely (is that a word?) successor.

    Please stand by for His Worshipfullness ....

    THE SUBJECT OF NOVEMBER/DECEMBER SHOOTING ASSIGNMENT IS...........................WAIT FOR IT...................IS...............

    Shoot the most remarkable expressive face that you can find. Then shoot that same face with the most incredible engaging laughter you can evoke from them.


    Must be two seperate expressions.
    They can't live in you household.

    Judging will be on lighting as well as impact.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
