Thanks for starting this Roz. My Dad passed away January 8th and I could not manage to finish the challenge. I imagine I'll be ready to get back into things by March. This will be good motivation for me. Thank you again.

so sorry for your loss Patsy .. i sent you a pm ... xx

but i think that the side challenges are an excellent place for us to get together without the competitive element ..
we're here to inspire and grow together .. to feed and be fed .. the fact that the sides motivate ppl as well is something i hear all the time ..

the act of taking a photo is more like a meditation than anything else to me .. but then like a performer there's that desire to share what i have done ..
i think thats part of the beauty of the side challenges .. we share and get the feedback .. and learn from each other .. and the commenting i feel is just as important as the posting .. :)

I'm in as long as it isn't "pencil erasers" or "landscape"

You can also comment on pictures in the "regular" challenges without assigning a numerical vote.

Well, I can probably commit to submitting ONE picture to this challenge -- I do to almost every other one here -- but beyond that it depends on the theme (if any) and my work schedule ... :-)

I'm in, unless of course it turns out to be something like "create a plastic looking interpretation of reality" then I'm in Bora Bora sipping cocktails with the crabs.

Please add Me I have never participated in a side challenge are there a set of rules I can read? Or are there any?

No, depending on what the side challenge is you just shoot for that. There are no strict rules and as there are no scores everyone trusts the other, itís a far more relaxed experience than the real challenges, you get comments if you comment and no one feels down because their picture isnít doing well. The freedom to let it all out without the fear of the anal score geeks holding you back.
