Oceans, rivers, ponds, lakes, streams, fjords, swamps, waterfalls, etc. Natural water takes on many shapes. Capture a naturally made body of water.

Love it....and yes Kristina - puddles are a body of water....

I love the idea, and I'm all ready to shoot it, obviously (bodies of water surround me), BUT... (and you knew it was coming) the phrase "naturally made body of water" is just ripe for abuse be the DNMC Nazis, since it excludes every reservoir and canal, every millrace, I could name a zillion things. And even worse, rivers and streams aren't technically "bodies" of water. Have at it, citizens!

There's a consensus developing around this kitchen table that there is actually only ONE "body of water", and that it consists of the sum of all the earth's water, collectively, and that any molecule of it is entirely representative of the whole, and that therefore the classic DPC shot of the single, pure, water droplet is perfectly on topic.

That consensus is now upped by one more number added to the con.scents.us.

I love water and taking pictures of lakes and the sea. Dont even know if I have any natural bodies of water round here but I think this would be a great challenge!

Did it really require two whole paragraphs to remind folks that a (good) water drop can be successfully shoehorned into any challenge? ;-)

No, just one. The first paragraph was about something else. I think. :-) Anyway, the second paragraph, whilst typographically a paragraph, is technically a single sentence...

It was Victor Hugo in Les Miserables, a sentence of 823 words, but that's at best the longest sentence in French literature; for quite a while James Joyce was the undisputed champion, in Ulysses, with a sentence of 4,391 words. Even this, however, was recently surpassed, rather resoundingly, by a 13,955-word sentence crafted by Jonathan Coe in The Rotters Club.

But, in world literature, the current champion seems to be a Czech novel that consists of a single, extended sentence; Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age by Bohumil Hrabal. This 128-page sentence is apparently what inspired Coe to craft his own verbal monument.

I'm with Robert on this one. Perhaps it would be sufficient for it to not obviously a man-made body of water...

Thanks for the info ... in high school I was the undisputed champion of the run-on sentence in English class, and in German I once crafted a sentence consisting only of one pronoun and seven verbs, But I don't think I even broke 100 words, much less 100 pages. However, it would have been great if, after all those pages, when he finally typed a period, he had followed it with com ...

He wouldn't and shouldn't tell you; it would give you a headstart on an upcoming challenge.

I actually find it a little perturbing that so many recent challenges are based on suggestions from the few days immediately preceeding ... seems like it's less of a "challenge" if the topic is one which people have recently been discussing/thinking about.
