Let's see if I'm still in for this, and I'll abide by a decision by back alley and others accepting the challenge to determine if I can still play.

When the challenge was first suggested I was just starting on developing a sack full of film that I'd been unable to get to for a couple of weeks after returning from a trip. If my memory serves me I know I have three themes I might get five useable shots from. My schedule will not allow me to go out and shoot another theme. Will I be able to use my exposed yet undeveloped film for the five shots?

No kidding, I can't walk very far and I have a cane, so I thought no way. But since Thursday I been able to put something together. I even have 10 frames to choose my five from. Hint, I went to LA from SF on Thursday and returned Saturday.

Cheers.

118!!!! Maybe I shouldn't have limited myself to 10, and used expired Kodak Gold 200.

I just got a few rolls developed. They were shot a few weeks ago. If I can use them, I'll play also.

Will have to figure out how to post picture in the process!

If it hasn't already been decided where the images will be posted, my recommendation would be flickr. As Flickr is primarily a photo viewing site, there is already a RFF flickr group and my guess is that many of the photos posted to a thread here would be originally hosted at flickr anyways.

one subject of your choice with 5 images exploring that subject...no more rules or all the shots will look like i would do them...

enjoy!
I've been away . . . if these are the
rules", I'm in right now.

If those ain't the rules, someone clue me in if necessary.

Good question. I don't know if I have my five (the film from my first attempt is still drying), but when or if I do, it would be handy to know where to post 'em.

Really sorry to hear that. I have been unemployed for a year. My thoughts go with you for quick, successful result!

I guess Halloween won't be the end of this challenge. Do we need to press the reset button?

Given the weather lately my entries, if we are going forward with work from the past few weeks, will be gloomy indeed. :-O
