This afternoon I thought I'd take a quick break to share with you a new group I've been participating in over the past week or so and invite you to join in!

The group is on Flickr (www.flickr.com/groups/makeitinteresting/ ) and they regularly post a photograph someone on Flickr has taken and challenge anyone to "make it interesting"!  Peeps like you and me, create a digital incorporating the photo, upload it and add it to the group.  After a set period of time then the voting begins.
Easy peasy!

For me, it's a great warm up to any project I may be working on, an opportunity to try out new compositions or color strategies, images you haven't had a chance to experiment with, a way to dig through a creative block or....the list goes on!  I limit myself to 30 minutes, set the clock and start creating!

Here's a sample of the next 3 challenge images (please follow the link for image credits for pre-photos) and below,  my 30 minute responses.

WOWza...good job! A friend and I just began a digital collaboration where we sent the other a picture of an actual piece of work. We then print out what the other sent and do our thing, take a pix and email. No postage between countries and it's still a fun collaboration!
