OK, I've had a good laugh at your responses (esp the 1 or 2 photos in the loft!)
No, the photo does not have to be taken by you
Copyright aside, if you choose to make money from someone else's photo, that's your choice.

I've had fun with this, it's so hot you can't go outside so I've played inside. Yes, my inspiration has come from the link I posted last week. Not sure if this is my entry yet, might play some more

My 'photo' is of the cat's face. it's titled 'That's my dinner!'

While I raised the point upon Copyright, it has nothing to do with money! Works created by someone are a creative extension of that person, and for me it is simply a matter of Respect for one another's property!  ;)

I missed last week when I found my best idea wouldn't work, by which time others had used my back-up ideas. So this week I've got in first.

I did take both the photos though the one in the shot is (cough) years old.

I couldn't agree more Andy, it is about respect for another person's photograph,and all too often we hear about photographers who take other images and alter them and mark then as their own work and get away with it - That's sad
But I don't see it as copyright to use another image as a background or a prop for a challenge like this where no-one makes any money, no-one is selling it, and we can all get a little pleasure in seeing what we come up with. If someone wants to take that a step further and promote it as their own, then they have to take the consequences. The fact is that some people will do just that (hopefully no one here!!).

It is a matter of where to draw the line and ethics Jen.

I recently saw a compilation image of HRH Prince Charles edited into a shot of a submerged car, with a speech bubble quoting boll..ks. Satirical? Highly offensive? Dry humour? The reference was to the flooding in the Somerset Levels following his visit and a donation from the Prince's funds. The point being, if you open up loose on the basis of no aspect in money, or let the thin edge of the wedge in, things can become dire or taken in the wrong way! - For satirical humour effect a cartoon drawing perhaps, expressing a point of view or intention in purpose. I can only assume the composer owned copyright of both components ?  :-\

A street shot taken of a bill board is fine while "borrowing" others work without consent is sick.

Well I have been playing around with an old picture that I took of Bath weir along with a hand double that I have borrowed from the internet and have come up with this.
It is a picture of a picture of a picture it may fit this weeks theme.

Well I`ve taken my shot today but whether I`ll have time to edit it is another matter. Buried in wedding photo editing. Shot a wedding with a lovely bride yesterday and shall we say an "older " groom. Been bugging me who he looks like as I trawl through hundreds of shots and it`s just hit me - I was shooting Steve Davis! Well - not really. Anyway got to prioritise that and will hopefully do my editing tomorrow. It`s a photo on another photo (older, of mine) inspired by a recent newspaper photo. I`ll say no ore.

it certainly does fit Kerbside. We had a local competition here organised by our local ABC along just those lines. Some of the original photos were just amazing. Well done

Nothing from me again this week, sorry. Had a single lame idea that didn't inspire me when I'd done it.

Nor from my. Both my ideas were rubbish. Sorry.

Nothing from me this week again - Lost my mojo at present, with the recent passing of my Pa. Hopefully in time it will come back.

Sorry to hear that Andy, I didn't know. It was after I lost my dad that I took up photography. To try to fill the void.

Photography filled the void when Ma went - so hopefully it will spring back soon  :tup: Thanks

Nothing from me either I am afraid. Just have not had time to do the editing and still trying to finish off a wedding package to deliver in the morning before by upcoming holiday. It was to have been my first attempt at green screen work with a shot of me superimposed on my charging bull elephant picture from South Africa. A reference to that group of holiday makers all with cameras trained to the front whilst a young bull elephant frolicked behind them. Maybe do it when I get back from Cuba now.

Hope you're rounding the corner onto the home straight to recovery.
It's bad enough with all the weather problems, without having to be unwell as well.
