The new two-week span will begin with this challenge, and the ban on multiple posts is gone, but please don't post everything you've got. Since you weren't sure what I'd do, if you have a door left hanging, go right ahead and post it. In the meantime, here's the new challenge:



You know what a tree looks like, but how does it look to the ant at its base or the bird coming in for a landing? Most often we take photos from somewhere near our normal eye level, but if we lie down or climb up or crawl inside or get underneath, we can find whole areas of photography we've known all along but may have forgotten.



So, get a new angle on life. Don't just stand there. Wrench your back, get mud on your knees, call the fire department to rescue you from the roof (remember to charge up your cell phone prior to the climb), do whatever it takes to get a new angle on the familiar.


There are no rules for this one other than trying for good composition. Oh, and don't break your neck.

Mmmmmmmmm....

In the spirit of Ansel Adams...previsualization then digital realization

I like this idea!

Also, perhaps...if subject is unfamiliar in photo, I respectfully suggest that the photogs who submit their photos offer no clues until the 2 weeks is up.

No, it's not your brain you have to use at all. You'll need your legs to climb or maybe a pillow for your head. You'll also need a thick skin so you can ignore anyone who laughs at you when you've your head stuck in a tiny space and your butt stuck up in the air. Nope, no brains required.:-)

Is anyone else getting garbage mixed in with their e-mail notifications? Here's what I just got:

...has posted a reply to topic "CHALLENGE: 5/12/04-5/25/04 “New Angle”". There might be other replies...

It's been happening ever since the change in forum software, and all the oddball characters are always in the place of the quote marks around the name of the challenge. I don't want to mention it to Steve if it's happening only to me.
