    Lots of interesting topics in that list. I think Perspective/POV in particular has lots of potential for a challenge thread.

    Maybe even better than that would be Lomography...oh...wait...NOT. :p :D In all seriousness, I'm surprised to see it on the list since the last topic was our nod to its general aesthetic (or so I thought). :cool:

    Yes. When I was in college is the early '70s, one of our projects was to shoot at an unusual perspective. It forced us to look at the world differently.

    I was going to suggest :eek:Paparazzi:eek: before I had my second cup to java...

    Poor Lomography...still can't catch a break:rolleyes:. Each to their own... I'll go ahead and throw a vote on silhouette. I've seen a few interesting ones lately and would like to see more. I know it can be difficult to execute correctly.

    I like "perspective." All of our images are from our perspective but I've never really thought about acknowledging that in some way in the image.

    MEOW

    Discussion will remain open until 12:01am March 5, John time (Princeton, Minnesota). Feel free to post ideas, but we seem to be settling on Perspective/Point of View. Stating it like this could be interesting. It could be read as a different view of objects or a different view of life.

    What do you think?

    Absolutely. That's the beauty of simple, conceptual phrases; they tend to be very open-ended. People should feel free to interpret them however they want.

    I wasn't clear. Should I word it:

    Perspective

    Point of View

    Perspective/Point of View.

    I agree that open concepts are :cool:

    Oh, that's what you meant. :eek: I like Perspective/Point of View. For some reason, that pairing seems to make it more broad.

    Or perhaps we start another thread and we can each share our point of view concerning the title. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    MEOW
