    There's a choice of assignments for April
    'The Insanity of Humanity'
    or
    'Metal'
    with bonus points presumably if you manage to fit both in a single image.

    You must have taken the picture yourself between 10 and 30 April. If you took a picture that fits the assignment but was taken earlier, then post it in this thread instead.

    Anyone can enter from those with (D)SLRs from P&S to cameraphones although they should be pictures that you think are good rather than just snapshots. The goal is not to 'win' but to share the enjoyment of taking pictures and learn from others.

    Some basic rules on commenting (basically be nice!) are here. Keep remarks about the topic(s) chosen in this thread.

    Post your pictures in this thread by the end of April with a title and we'll start commenting (make sure you title your comment referencing the pic you are commenting on)

    "Recent" photos aren't included here.

    Just so that we're all crystal clear (and in case you didn't read the 1st post), here's how it works:

    1) If you want to submit a photo for this month's assignment, it must be taken after the topic has been decided on, which means the photo has to be taken after April 10th (or maybe the 11th, depending on where you live in this world). You submit these photos in this thread.

    2) If you have a photo that fits the topic(s) this month, but it was taken earlier than April 10th (eg: April 9th, last year, a decade ago) and is in your collection, and you'd love to show us, there's another thread for it, and that thread is HERE.

    The picture isn't really large enough for me to figure out what it's supposed to be showing....?

    Punk kids do it all the time (it's actually not that easy). But the local newspaper (San Jose Mercury) said that supposedly, in some neighborhoods, it's an "open for business" sign for drug dealers. :shrug:

    No, it's not easy to do at all. Must have took like 50 tries or something. It takes a while.

    :Squints: Shoes? Oh, NOW I see! I really couldn't make out what that was, although I knew it was more than likely something which didn't belong there.

    Thanks!

    In a lot of inner cities, that used to be true. I have an uncle that's a 'street cop' and he told me how they used to do that, but they ( the police ) caught on to it really fast, of course.

    Unless no one touched the chalkboard in a month, that picture would have been taken around "pi" day, or March 14 (note the happy pi day message on the chalkboard), which would not qualify it for this thread ...

    I am insulted, what do I need to post my unaltered RAWs for people to stop questioning when people take pictures? I know the freaking rules, I took this today, April the 11th.

    So you just work on the dirtiest chalkboard ever, with last month's work still on it. Sweeeet.

    I don't work on it, and believe me there are worse ones laying around the physics buildings.

    Heavy Metal Pt II

    .... Hee, hee, the location of this shoot: a psychotherapist's office!

    (Sorry, no image, just thought it ironic! Fits right in with the "insanity" bit, no?)

    This could be entered for either category. I took this today whilst traveling to Newcastle. It the Angel of the North. It was a very quick shot as I went past.
    (I was the passenger by the way in the car)

    I went out exploring the town where my university is located two days ago, and snapped this picture of the abandoned steel factory. It's a big metal part of the factory with all the furnaces. Looks like a pretty sinister place too.

    Yea sorry for making it so big,
    I couldn't figure out how to post a thumbnail as a link for a picture on a flickr site.

    Does anybody know how to do that? I can go back and fix that big picture up in that way.

    -Thanks
