I agree with your explanation.

I really really wish I knew. This is another where the challenge title "I Just Gotta Be Me" suggested one thing to me so I went out shooting with that in mind. Then later I read the description carefully: "Someone (or something) being different, that's the idea" and I said, "Well, phooey!!"

So I shot what I though was someone or something being itself (a self that many of us would not want to be) . . . you know, "I just gotta be me!"

But now I think that's wrong and I should have found someone or something that was being different from what it normally was. Tell me again why we have descriptions on some of the challenges??

Edit to add: and now I'm reading Mark's take and I'm thinking, "Yes, that is what I thought, too."

Dance like nobody's watching. Love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening. Live like it's heaven on earth.

Someone (or something) being different, that's the idea. Shoot it"
