I like assignments, even though I only get around to a few a year.

I'm like AT in that I enjoy them. Even if I never get off my butt and exacute, at least they give me something to think about.

All I know is that June assignments better be "Ancient Ruins", "Italian Cuisine", "Italian Landscapes", "City Canals", or "Roman Street Photography".

I'm in favor of assignments. I do think about them, as Barefoot points out, even if I don't do them. I think last year I got more of them done than usual. I missed not having one in January.

I'm keen.

I have already conceded that I am not going to stick with my proposed 365 project (just too hard after I got back to work)

I had been noting a few ideas I had during last year just for this purpose. These suggestions are:

film noir
bubbles
looking up/looking down
panning
shot from low level
street sellers
legs

I like these Ideas RM!

Please members - throw a few ideas out there and we will make it happen.

Here's a few ideas I have;
Gestures (posed or unposed)
Five
Make an image with a camera in the shot.

Three good ones. I also like "legs".

"Flickr Friday" Flickr group has been doing weekly themes for a while now. There may be some ideas for assignments amongst this batch if anyone wants to flick through and get some ideas

Their discussion page is here https://www.flickr.com/groups/flickrfriday/discuss/

A few I found from there include

coffee
power
candlelight
mirror

I may try to have better look later when I have a bit more time

Cool - - I'm gonna take the liberty of choosing 12 and we can start with that.....just level 1 for now.
If interest grows we can resume level 2.

As usual I base the decisions on the likelihood of people doing the assignment - lol.

Please feel free to throw out additional ideas for the next day or so. thx

May be too late but I will throw one more in the list;

After seeing Barefoot's most recent post, how about "multiple exposure"?

Maybe "backgrounds" where the background is deliberately an important part of the image

You must be happy AT - caffè will work really well in Italy . Lots of street shots.
