    Just thought I would list something’s that may give ideas for anyone who wins the Monthly Competition but is stuck for a subject.


    Black and White in Colour (means taking a picture if something that is black & white in colour mode on the camera, not in B&W mode).
    Bridges.
    Buildings.
    Flora.
    Fauna.
    Men at work.
    Mechanisms.
    Night time.
    Patterns.
    Pets.
    Symmetry.
    Squalor.
    Waterways.

    Any more sugestions for subjects?

    this one should be used for december - worst christmas decorations..???
    you know the ones I mean, the kind that you see on the outside of chavs houses on most council estates... :D

    I will understand that most pictures will probably be taken from the inside of a car so as you can make a fast getaway... :laugh:

    Excellent idea...I think it should have its own dedicated thread anyway....I couldn't believe some of the houses I saw last year, especially on estates where its "beat the jones". 15ft inflatable santas, snowmen, moving lights.....reminded me of Chevy Chase on National Lampoons Christmas vacation :laugh: :laugh:

    We saw one that had a full nativity scene in the garden, my mate dressed as santa and we took a photo, he dived out of the car and nearly tripped over his beard, take a look...we then made a sharp exit as the householder was very protective of his display. I would hate to have seen his electricity bill.

    other themes could include
    milkmen
    postmen
    binmen
