Been scoring pretty poorly lately, Hopefully this entry will take care of that but who knows.

I'm in. First one since my last train wreck. Feels good though. If the sun would just cooperate I'd get involved in a lot more. Or maybe I should buy a flash. eh, to be pondered later. Should be interesting to see what ends up in this.

I'm in - however, I have a feeling it will not do well with the voters here, but I like it. :-D

By the looks of your profile page you seem to be doing just fine.

Well, a shoehorn is used to force something to fit where it really doesn't, so a shoehorned entry is one that is forced to fit, usually by the use of a clever title.

Usually.

Entered the challenge with yet another "hope it does well". Usually ends me up with a 5 to 5.5 range but I'm still hoping that this could be the one that hits mid 6's.

Guaranteed DNMC if you shoot, say, a 2010 Mercedes Benz and title it "First Manufactured 1885" LOL.

Lol. I don't mean it like that! :)

What if it is an actual 100 year old shoe horn;-p :-)?

The Moon.
A rock or pebble.

Although, making a photo of a rock interesting would be in itself a challenge.

Don't listen to them. We must stick to our principles!

I think this is a semantical argument.

Dictionary Definition-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

thing n
1. an object, fact, affair, circumstance, or concept considered as being a separate entity
2. any inanimate object
3. an object or entity that cannot or need not be precisely named
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hence a person is not a thing, unless referred to informally as a "poor thing", and this challenge indicates "something" not "someone".

This actually makes the challenge harder for me, as it would be much easier to barge into a nursing home and snap a shot Elder McCrankster then it will be for me to find a something over a 100 years old.

My predicted shoehorns for this contest will be

Landscape and/or Sky Shots
People
Concepts or Ideas (either pictures or acted out ideals)

: )

BTW, I am not "THAT" worried about this. This one was just about as scary a topic for a wide range of interpretations as I've seen so far. Will certainly be fun.

OK, I'm in and am happy with my entry. This absolutely guarantees that it'll tank big time!

Yep, you are being a stickler here, a person is someone, but also something 100 years old. I am person, but I am still something old in my ways:) I do things that are old to the yuff of today, in the realm of objects, animate or inanimate. I am a thing as well as a humman bean.

I'm in! I'm closer to 100 years than most, so I should recognize authenticity.
