    There are no rules. Just 31 prompts which you can use to inspire your photography OR you can completely ignore them and do your own thing. You can shoot one picture a day, you can shoot all your 31 pictures in one day, the only preference (not a rule) is that you post 31 pictures for the month. Shoot them in any order. But if you can't do 31, post what you can. August is all about images. So go out and shoot, shoot, shoot! Then post, post, post! And, if you want to, comment, comment, comment!

    I can't post everyday. My access to serious compacts is, at most times, flaky. But if I am not there to start the next day's thread, be bold and do it for me!

    Hmmm what else, if you do use the prompts, give your post the title of the prompt so we know the huge ever growing pulsating brain that rules the centre of the ultra world from the title ... not sure I'm gonna know it when I see it! But then I've lived a sheltered life!

    1. Stuck together
    2. Unrecognizable
    3. Deep
    4. Cool
    5. Organised mess
    6. Coming and Going
    7. Downside up or inside out
    8. Higher love
    9. A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules from the Centre of the Ultraworld
    10. Pretty Ugly
    11. Meditative
    12. Enjoyment
    13. Exhaustion
    14. Mostly monotone
    15. Myopic [open to interpretation, visual or otherwise..]
    16. True grit
    17. Filled with air
    18. A bottle of something or something in a bottle
    19. Tender is the night
    20. In the dark
    21. Mechanical Mayhem
    22. Flash
    23. Toy Story
    24. Lawless
    25. Shooting blind
    26. Underworld
    27. Negative
    28. Up in the air
    29. Bananas
    30. A touch of Class
    31. Take my/your breath away

    Have fun!

    Here's a couple of versions of the list to save people doing their own.

    One in Word'97 format, one as a PDF

    Hmm not perfect are they ... if someone can tart them up a bit and post their own versions they're welcome.

    Looks good to me Paul, thanks for the list! And thanks to all of you, Karen, Luke, ivoire and whoever else has been involved in setting this up. Now.. we'll see if I actually shoot. But to be honest I've been doing a lot of that this last month!

    Just downloaded the Word version. If you reduce the font size to 11 it fits on a page. Oh and I deleted a couple of blank lines in the heading.

    Thanks for your effort! I have to go through 1200 images from the past weeks in South Africa, but will try to come up with 31 images in August as well.

    I'm bumping this topic back to the top because I have seen a post or two where new folks have seemed confused by the seemingly random nature of the daily threads. It's not random..... it's scattered organization:wink:.

    An open invite to all to grab a theme or photo idea prompt from the list at the beginning of this thread. Take a photo that fits and post it. One a day....or more if you're just joining in. Have fun and/or push yourself to try something new.

    I'll bump this again and I have made it a sticky so it's at the top of the menu now in case anyone needs to refer to it.

    Select a prompt title in any order you like then post it.

    Chronological Sequence is immaterial & unnecessary

    So if I began today, I'd post whatever my prompt title photo was on the most up-to-date day?
