I want to hear your slightly odd or totally bizarre challenge ideas. We could actually get some good ideas out of this. Extra kudos for finding existing photos on DPC to show that people really want to photograph such things.

My idea is bathroom fixtures. (I figure Slippy is good for a ribbon on this one!)

My idea is to catch 21.gif Yo_Spiff doing something embarrassing. Let's all stake out his house and workplace. :-D

For example...

Or this entire collection, hehe.

Problem with that is I post them myself.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_655983.jpg Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_901631.jpg

Clearly a popular subject, dating back as far as image #8241, and with heavy hitters like 21.gif Bear_Music even weighing in on the subject - heck there's even a user named wad of poo

That would be a good challenge, but I fail to see what's odd or bizarre about it..

Odd that for an everyday object we have not had a challenge for it yet?;-P

I was going to suggest MUD but I looked in the challenge history and we had a Dirt challenge

Ah, bathroom fixtures. Yeah, I tried that once. And that's where my score went.
Straight into the "little room."

I'd love to see a "Classical Music" Challenge.
Heck, all alone, Vivaldi, with his "Four Seasons" could keep our photographers busy for ages.

Heh...what about a thumbnail image challenge. The dimensions of the photo need to be within the size of the sites thumbnail images.

You did say bizzare.....

Or, it could just be a challenge of thumbnails.

I've got a bellybutton hidden.png and a bathroom fitting (shower rail) Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_894893.jpg although there is a UK/US difference of course. I think what you guys call a bathroom we call a toilet and what we call a bathroom you call a, um, bathroom?

You know, thumbnail sized images are important, I think this would be a great challenge idea!

I had suggested "Gratuitous Nudity" a long time ago. Hasn't been acted upon though :(

I can go along with that. The only problem is that he can get me too. But he's usually a good sport about it so maybe. Will have to think about and maybe that opportunity will 'just present itself' and I won't be able to resist.

Jocular, but ever so slightly annoying at that time in the morning, postmen.
