Since I missed the March Words and Images challenge, I'd like to give that a go... words that mean something to me in images... :)... I'm in :)
03/31/2008 08:52:38 AM · #4
I missed out on the environmental portrait so I might do a "People of My Town" month. Possibly exclusively in B/W (nice contrast to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sherpet). I've never done a side challenge like this before, are you supposed to post 1 a day?
03/31/2008 08:59:20 AM · #5
I'm in, but am going to ponder a theme. Can't wait!
03/31/2008 09:02:35 AM · #6
Only if you can, as we all know sometimes that may not be possible..... It is all up to you to decide, and we look forward to having you join us.....

This is sooooooooo tempting. I do need to get out and shoot more... And then I'd have to think of a theme...

Edit: good to see you back in action Shez

We have our March side challenge continuing, but there aren't many members - maybe 7 or 8. I guess we could post here too but it might get too confusing. LOL

03/31/2008 09:37:16 AM · #9
Sounds good to me! I'll get back to you on the theme ;)
03/31/2008 09:45:50 AM · #10
I'm in. I want to do "minimalism."

:)
03/31/2008 09:56:18 AM · #11
I am in desperate need of a side challenge. I've got to get out of this rut I've got myself into....I would love to do the Alphabet one.
03/31/2008 10:14:52 AM · #12
Hmmmmmm. . . . well. . . .the side challenges do take up aLOT of time. . . .*thinks and thinks and thinks*, commenting is grueling sometimes. . . . . *thinks some more*. . . .but friendships grow. . . .*thinks even more*

Ok I'm in! My theme: All Creatures Great and Small :)

03/31/2008 10:41:35 AM · #13
I am in. My theme will be the "Traveling Marble" or the "Many Views of the Marble". Can't think of a great title but I will do something with marble(s).
03/31/2008 11:11:02 AM · #14
I would like to join but I dont know if I can pull it off will all the work I have been doing on our house lately.... Let me think, I am definately interested.... Just worried about the time.
03/31/2008 11:27:26 AM · #15
Well I haven't been around much lately, but I think it's time for a little self discipline that fits in with my current situation, which involves a lot of travelling. I'm in with "Hit the Road Jack".....and I'll see where my travels take me.....and already I apologise for sporadic commenting and haphazard postings....and thank you for your patience.
03/31/2008 12:21:09 PM · #16
I was hoping the Slice of Life side challenge would start back up this month, so since it hasn't, I'll take that theme which roughly translates as "Whatever the heck I feel like shooting today".

I didn't want people to get burned out on it (me included) so decided to give it another month off. I'm thinking May would be a good month to have one.
