    Luke has set this week's challenge encouraging new material if possible.


    I'd like to encourage everyone to get out and shoot for this challenge. And I know I can't change the rules so stuff from the archives is acceptable, but I'm gonna call an "anything goes" category.......EXIF should specify it was captured after this time and date. If someone really can't get and shoot for the period of time of the challenge, dig in the archives and submit something truly extraordinary.​


    OK let's see what we can produce.

    Shot just now, in my conservatory...

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/lightmancer/7267245378/" title="Alexander Beetle by Lightmancer, on Flickr">"1024" height="670" alt="Alexander Beetle"></a>

    I found a little beetle; so that Beetle was his name,
    And I called him Alexander and he answered just the same.
    I put him in a match-box, and I kept him all the day ...
    And Nanny let my beetle out -
    Yes, Nanny let my beetle out -
    She went and let my beetle out -
    And Beetle ran away.


    ...with apologies to AA Milne... :wink:

    Cow parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris) Common wild flower in England in bloom this time of year. It was in a shady spot with some of the flowerheads in the sunlight shining through the tree cover.

    Rescued

    Rescued, baby Blue Bird, found in store parking lot. Did not seem scared at all. Flew up on brother-in-law's shoulder. Sat and walked about for several minutes. Returned to bird house.

    XPro1 60mm cropped. Haven't been shooting much lately due to other obligations, but was at a local zoo yesterday where I thought I'd have lots of photo opportunities, but the ony animals that weren't behind a fence were two of these beauties.

    A few of my son's Fuji Instax photos from this past weekend. He keeps forgetting to adjust the exposure setting (sun, shade, cloudy...) and thus most were under or over-exposed. Nonetheless, he gets a kick and few of them were very good. He has no sense for the cost of film and he'll blow through a box of 20 pictures in minutes. And he did something that caused the camera to bust and each picture is now completely missing some part of the image, and each one is randomly different in what part is missing. The kind of thing only a kid can accomplish. But in a few years he'll probably be able to fix it himself.
