Here are the (non) rules - SMILE!

1. RELAX
2. Turn up when you can, with what you want to offer and don't stress about how often.
3. Comment when you can, it's always appreciated, but be kind to yourself, life get's busy and I wouldn't want you to stay away because you can't always comment
4. CREATE - let your hair down, rid yourself of constraints and show us what YOU DO!

Here are the images ...

I'm already cheating. :-) This was taken in February, but I'm taking advantage of the side challenge to process and share some of the Lensbaby (and perhaps other blurred) shots I took last week. :-) An abandoned train station at what used to be the border between east and west Germany.

Well, since YOU are cheating then so will I :-) This was taken a couple of days ago to get me in shape for this challenge.

I'm excited. Not sure if the whole month will be blur, but you can count on my contributions to certainly NOT be straight out of the camera. :~)
02/28/2009 06:58:51 PM · #5
Ummm - I've got a confession guys - I 'often' use images not taken during the month of the Side Challenge - GRIN!

Never occurred to be not to - SMILE!
02/28/2009 07:02:41 PM · #6
Well, I'm going to be mean and throw two in for the price of one. Neither is very good photographically, but they mean alot to me. LOL! My son was in his first Pinewood Derby today with his cubscouts. Him and his father made his car from a plain block of wood. He lost the race since my husband didn't know all the tricks to make it fast, but... he won the "Coolest Car" by popular vote and received his first ever trophy. He's still grinning (and calling all his friends to boast)!

I would love to give this a go - hope it's not to late to join and you don't mind. I need to get off my butt and practice. Can only do a couple shots a week, but I am good at commenting.
