    I can't remember who posted it, or who said it..."There are 10 interesting things to photograph, within 10 feet of you at all times".

    I challenge everyone here to find 3 interesting things within 10 feet of where they are right now, and post the resulting images here. C'mon, do it! Let's test our eyes and composition skills.

    I did this the other day, and found it quite fun, quite a challenge, and rather rewarding. I'll post mine up later, unless someone needs to "go first" to get the ball rolling.

    Ok, get crackin'!

    Chase Jarvis says this. It'll be interesting to see what people come up with.

    I thought it would be fun. Thanks Sheman, for linking to who said the quote.

    I should add that anyone who wants to do this, don't have to do it "right now" but when they do it, should still be from the location of reading this.

    Great challenge, could of easily done 10, but had to post 4. Couldn't stop at 3. When I read this post I was sitting at the kitchen table with my laptop.

    1. The cat politely asking me not to take any more pictures as she was trying to take a nap. She's on the chair about 2 feet away from me.

    2. Across the room about 8 feet away is this hand blown vase done by an artist in Sechelt, B.C.

    3. About 5 feet away from me is one of the front windows.

    4. About 3 feet behind me is an outside wall and the deck railing is 6 feet from the house. So technically about 9 feet away on the other side of the wall I found this.

    Just two of the MANY, MANY toys I could have photographed within 10 feet of me. I need to get off this computer and clean...*sigh*

    Yay!

    Mooimeisie, nice stuff!
    Love the cat, and the art glass. The bug is a nice shot too. #3 is a little snapshotty, to me.

    Linpelk, love, love, LOVE, the pic of your daughter! Great angles, great composition, and awesome expression! #2 made me :lmao:, nice. Nice shot of the beetle car running over the teddy bear. :lol:

    Ok, here are mine:

    #1 about 5-6 feet away.

    Coming Together

    #2

    This is the shot that got me to do this. I thought about that quote, turned around and saw how the late afternoon light was bringing out the textures, and I went and grabbed my camera. It was, as the title says, 10 feet away.

    Ten Feet

    #3 was 3 feet away from me.

    Stress

    Thats it?

    Nobody else can accept a challenge of being forced to find interesting compositions amongst the mundane around them?

    Lazy.
