    The basic idea of this challenge is to take the best shot you can without setting it up, changing settings, or looking through the viewfinder to frame it properly. Just close your eyes, point, and shoot!

    Its fun and you can get some pretty interesting shots :D

    I actually did this last night. Taking photos of a sunset, here lies a dead turtle, attempted to include the turtle and sunset together, but it was impossible; unless I moved the turtle...

    This should be perfect for me. I never look anyway.

    I actually just needed to get a lower POV for this so i just let the camera hang from my neck.

    How sad, the poor turtle!!

    But even though the turtle was dead, it made for a nice picture.

    Do'undren I like your photo too, where was it taken?

    And Zac... Are you sure you weren't looking? I like the composition of your photo.

    Speaking of turtles... Here's something of my pet turtle at home.
    I had to put the camera flat on the table so it would be at the turtles eye-level but that meant I couldn't fit my face any where near the camera.
    Had a lot of trouble focusing.
    Here it is...

    These ones are of my brother spinning a glowing poi. He was spinning too fast for me to be able to judge the height and length he would take up and the shutter speed was about 4 seconds so the viewfinder told me nothing of what the final shot would look like.

    Promise! I was actually just walking to class, shooting for fun, and had friend's D40x hanging from my right hand. Went after a zipper on my bag, and viola! Shutter click and that's what came out.

    I shot this last night, above my head... It turned out pretty good, I think.
    The shadow is of an old car 1949ish Buick I think.
