    Now then.

    My dearly beloved has, for reasons too complicated to explain here, had to travel overseas for a while. I am therefore at a comparative loose end this weekend. Oh there are chores to do, but I would rather take a photo. :smile:

    So set me an assignment - challenge me. What would you like to see? The result will be posted on this thread.

    similar to Eliot's challenge, I'd like to see you shoot the same scene (or subject) using a different focal point to give the photo a different meaning.

    So, you have your assignment, you will be busy, but the house will suffer. And when the wife returns......! :eek:

    If I were in Bill's shoes my challenge would be a camera mounted on a tripod overlooking the kitchen sink and doing a time laps video over the course of the weekend......LOL. I share dish duties with my wife, but when she's out of town, I just don't do 'em until 30 minutes before she returns.

    Luke, that's so familiar, although for me it's the girls I share my students' appartment with!

    Luke, between living with my Mom and living with my girlfriend, that's been the story of my life for 30+ years!

    I would love to see you shoot multiple exposures of all the favourite bits of your house, in one picture.
