    It is not tradition that secures the survival of our craft, its the craft that secures the survival of our traditions.

    The month is half over. How do we decide what to shoot?

    This sounds interesting. Do you mean use tripod holes or do you mean our personal take on a photographic icon?

    I know this is a bit of a "Monk moment" for me...but, the attribution is to Newton, not Einstein:

    "If I have seen further [than certain other men] it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants."

    One of the great quotes of all time!

    One of my favourite ways of discovering new things -and when i say "things" i mean situations, people, subjecs to photograph, roads i've never been to etc- is getting in the first bus/train i see in front of me without seeing it's route number or where it'll take me to.

    So, how about "Random Trip", as it definately will move some of you guys, doing something you haven't tried before. If it doesn't sound too specific...

    Close your eyes to see. This will take a while.

    I like the geometry idea and the close idea....either sounds good for everyone around the world. Has a decision been made yet?
    What!? Behind the rabbit?
