I have been away a while and you all come up with self portraits?!? I certainly share the dislike for being in front of my own camera, (thought I was the only one) but I'll give her a try. Self portrats where we live hmmm..do we have to be, like visable in them? Or is a shadowy figure acceptable? :-)
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 was getting too long for easy browsing, so (by request) I set up a specific thread for the January Challenge. 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 and, once a goodly number of suggestions had been received, a February Challenge poll 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:
Theme - "A self-portrait which says something about where you live"
Closing date - 10 Feb
Theme - "Light can be dark"
Closing date - 10 Mar
All submissions should be posted in the Challenge Gallery 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. If people would rather someone else organised it, that's fine with me too.

I do a lot of freelance work (illustration/graphic design) after I get home from my day job (more graphic design) and since the computer is boring I thought I'd show the traditional side of my freelance work.
