    I always liked Herman's A-Z group challenge so thought I'd resurrect it. This time using towns, cities and countries as the subjects.

    The rules. Start at A and, as a group, we will work our way through to Z. A is the first letter of the alphabet so one photo of a place beginning with A, for example, Australia. B is the second letter of the alphabet so two photos, C is the third so three photos, and so on. Some letters are more challenging than others.

    Please join in and take us around the world with your serious compacts!

    Thanks for starting us off. I've not been to Turkey yet though know a lot of folk who go there regularly. Looks an interesting place to visit.

    Ankara is the capital, but mostly developed after the republic established in 1923. Istanbul has more to offer w/ history and nature...

    Sorry. Got a bit ahead of myself with the first C there so here's a second B to keep everything right: Berat, Albania

    I WISH I had a photo of Cairo, IL! But as I don't, I'm submitting Canterbury Cathedral (It's down that lane if you look for it), Canterbury, Kent, UK.

    St. Mary in Castro, Dover Castle, Kent, UK. (Hey, it was this or a photo taken through the windshield of a car of the roadsign for Bloody Gulch Road in Dixon, IL, hometown of Ronald Reagan.)

    I don't understand how the challenge is supposed to work. Do we each do an a-z, or do we just follow from the previous in which case I am already out, I have no E.

    There should only be 1 photograph for A, 2 photographs for B, 3 photographs for C, 4 for D, and so on. Once the letter has been used up the next person should select the next letter. It's easier if folk number the picture, for example:

    A1 Australia
    B1 Berlin, Germany
    B2 Budapest, Hungary
    C1 Canterbury, England
    C2 Cairo, Egypt
    C3 Croatia and so on

    This way we will know which one is next.

    Does that make more sense?

    To see how it worked in the original A-Z thread, have a look here: https://www.photographerslounge.org/showthread.php?t=1831

    In this A-Z challenge the letter can be a town, city or country. It's a small world these days but folk might not recognise town or city names so it's helpful to add the country in the title too.

    LOL still need the last D before we can go on to E. For E we will need 5 place names (as it is the fifth letter of the alphabet) then on to F which will need 6 photos before going on to G, and so on.
