FALL FUNTEST

Postby kelly_m » Oct 26, 2012 11:40 pm

Just so we don't hijack Kat's awesome Colville Cottage....I thought i would start a new thread to see if there is interest in a Fall Foto Funtest!

now years ago we had the Fall Frolic Fsomething Fsomething (is that a sign of old age?????) The name of which was conspired by the formidable MareE.

BUT

This is a different time and a different forum....same but different forum. So we should up date. Hence the Fall Foto Funtest!

Not really Foto Contest more of a nontest like Lyn called it. We could come up with, say 4 categories (dogegories to some) and we'd all put our contributions in and have a vote in the end...would be the anonymous poll voting we have here...

Well? What say you???

Lots of lurkers in the forum .. Too bad it is so hard to get them to participate.

This is a great idea, but I dont know what to do about getting people to actually post. Lets try to be more inclusive? Perhaps they are worried they will get yelled at or disagreed with. Also, even though its a free country some people are very sensitive about criticism of their photographs.

I dont care, I just love photographs. No matter what. I try to be enthusiastic about everyones photos here. As Lizzie used to say this isnt a photography forum where we give each other hints.

Here are some suggestions for some categories. I agree it shouldnt be a contest, just a gallery.

blurds
pet, or total goof?
home DYI /disaster /fabulous triumph
worst weather in the universe category
my most favorite garden scene of 2012
The garden tool I can not do without

Yup! Snowplows this morning. I'm afraid all my fall fotos would be white. Of course there is such a thing as indoors..... 8)
