Only 3 entries because hardly anybody takes photos in black n white these days. Apparently, nobody got around to scanning any of their old ones. It is against the rules to edit a color image to make it grayscale, right?

But, I do have a thought for a category. It's harvest season, soon it will be Thanksgiving, so how about "Bounty"? Photo's of prepared food and/or food items showing the abundance of a good harvest?

Wow... I thought there'd be more of them!

One theme I was thinking of that could be interesting is "Photobombs"... where there's something in the picture that really wasn't intended... I've got a bunch of other ideas too that are more cattle related. Bounty could be a good one for in a couple weeks when everyone's gotten a chance to take the pictures :)

Out of 172 topics you can't pick 12. I guess I should have included pine trees so you could enter a pic.

I thought there were several on the list that had possibilities.
#2, #30, #34 for starters.

It is a good category Alison , but I think a lot of people are busy with harvesting and weaning like it always is this time of year so NO worries !!! :tiphat:

We may have only gotten 3 pics but all 3 are fantastic :wave:

The camera I have now doesn't take good quality black and white pictures.
I'd been meaning to go out and take one of a black and white cow or calf, but time...

Lots of interesting signs, novel mail boxes, sometimes plastic wrapped bales with letters or faces painted on them - to be seen around here. Not sure on the ethics of photographing someone else's place, but it could get some interesting entries for sure.

You know if you set the computer screen at an odd angle (look from below, I think) your eye will invert the colours. The camera will do the same thing, so you can photograph a photo and have it in all bizarre colours.
How about having photos of fences? We all have different types of fences, and some of them have algae or cobwebs or shiny stuff on them.
Or mushrooms, have we done that before? (not that anything's wrong with repetition) Does everyone get mushrooms/toadstools on their farms or just the wet climate people?

#172 has some meritorious possibilities......
