    I like the Urban/Buildings idea, but to add something to the choices, my proposal is: Transitions

    I think there might be some interesting opportunities for interpretation here. Anyways, just my 2 eurocentimes :)

    Looking forward to participating this month ;)

    I dig Urban/Buildings...but that's a partial bias since I feel it would be easier for me. I couldn't muster up anything for Yellow :(

    It's so weird that I clicked onto this thread and found 'Urban/Buildings' being discussed.

    I wish I could take a decent picture as I was just walking around at lunchtime and thinking what an interesting photo this particular building would make...

    Wicked, it's suggestion time again.

    But first thank you Applespider for keeping the assignments going. I feel
    that there were lots of really good contributions for "Yellow".

    I'd really like to shoot "urban/buildings". But then again I have a lot of subjects to choose from here in Copenhagen.

    I know I suggested "edible" last month, but I think it would be really interesting to do something with food.
    So my suggestion for this month is: "food"

    I'd like to suggest "summer" as a topic.

    Many of us around the world are currently enjoying a warmer than average summer and there are so many opportunites to capture this with a camera.

    How about some composition technicals:

    Rhythm
    Patterns
    Lines (my first attempt at typing this had my hand on the wrong keys and I typed lubes which I found a funny enough occurrence to share)
    Divine proportions (commonly misinterpreted as the rule of 1/3s)

    unhealthy

    that would include food, drugs, sports, pollution of any kind, Windows XP and it would be a bit geared towards people.

    I haven't submitted an assignment before (I was always afraid of the DP forum...most of these pictures are so intimidating), but what about:

    History
    Faith
    Great Outdoors (I like Alex's idea) - it is a bit broad (covers almost anything), but so was yellow...

    Guys... remember the Keep it Simple philosophy - when we try to get too clever (Nature in Unexpected Places), we tend to hit problems.

    And let's have some thoughts on some of the ideas otherwise we'll end up with a poll of hundreds - and I'd like to keep it to 7 or 8 if possible.

    I was thinking of "food: regional/seasonal", but for most of the ones that I was thinking of, "unhealthy" can be an apt description!

    How about something a little thought provoking?

    A fairly wide interpretation on a theme....."on the edge" springs to mind.
    Could be anything from a cliff top to a stressed out bussinessman.

    Maybe it's time I went to bed:D

    I like Urban/Buildings and I think Rhythm could be very interesting, although I think people might struggle, and therefore we could get reduced entries.

    How about "A Different View"? It could be people, landscape, macro, anything, and could be literally or philosophically interpreted.

    And I promise to enter this one, now I'm not up to my eyeballs in work...:eek:

    I know not everyone here is really into macro, but I really like it... maybe something themed towards that? Like "bugs" or "life"?

    Work

    I like to see humanity caputered, in all its facets. And I thought there might be some really cool shots to be taken, so my idea for a theme is WORK. Whatever that means to you. IT could be the construction of a building, a tired bussboy taking a smoke brake, or a still life of a pencils shadow across a clipboard. Heck even capturing someones leisure activity sweating in a garden, or a guide dog waiting at a bus stop. I hope its picked, I cant wait to search.

    Oh, and second idea is music... he he nothing realy needs to be said on that one.

    Some good suggestions already. I like animals, work and lube, especially. :D

    I want to suggest "portraits", because that would force me into asking someone to stand model for me. (I'll probably end up with a self-portrait)

    I would second that "portraits" as I like shooting people rather than inanimate objects or nature (bugs creep me out).

    I'd like something to do with summer as it's winding down in the northern hemisphere ... orange, heat, water, something of that nature =)

    Or for fun, carnivals and fairs, festive moods.
