    The APUG Photo Challenge - Q3 2005 Suggestions and Discussion Thread

    The APUG Photo Challenge is a quarterly bash where APUG members go and make a photograph fitting a given theme and upload the result to the APUG Challenge Gallery. Full information and the current status of the Challenge can be found here.

    This thread is for the 2005 Quarter 3 Challenge (suggestions for the theme and general discussion) which will have a closing date of 30th September. In a few days I'll post another thread to poll the suggestions.

    So, what would you like to see for the Q3 theme?!

    "Under Construction".
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Everyday things.
    Non-photography related items you would use everyday.

    Let's see; July, August and September. What about heat or traveling. Both predominate things during those months.

    Back when I used to live in Fort Lauderdale FL, one of my favorite bumper stickers was one that read "Why do they call it Tourist Season if they won't let us shoot them?" Anyone that's lived in a tourist attraction type area can really appreciate that!

    I like it!

    "Tourist Season"

    I've never taken part, but now you've got my interest.

    "Open Season on Tourists"

    "Snapping Snapshooters"

    The destination is important, but so is the journey
