CHAT- CARDBOARD - Weekly Comp 27/10 to 2/11 2013
« on: October 26, 2014, 10:05:24 AM »
CHAT THREAD:

ENTRIES THREAD is HERE

Here is a theme that Ogga and I hope will test your inventiveness and get you looking about you. An image featuring to some extent CARDBOARD of any kind.

CARDBOARD is a material all around us that is used not just for mundane packaging, but is fashioned into all kinds of shapes of widely varying sizes and uses.

The challenge is to find something new in the commonplace.

Many of you will have seen the clever use of Amazon packaging to make facsimile people and place them in amusing or poignant situations. That's certainly one option to consider. Or make something . .


As usual all images used to be taken Pictures to be taken between the times above,
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 3rd November 2014.
Poll will be up Tuesday 4th November 2014.
Winner to be announced Saturday 8th November 2014.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on, or before the Sunday following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc.)

This is a somewhat unusual theme and something to get my mind into overdrive. Will think of this one with relish! I have one idea that has sprung to mind but might stretch my imagination a little bit first.

I am pretty unlikely to get an entry in this week. All day wedding tomorrow and lots on. If something falls in my lap like last weeks street art who knows though.

House full of guests until Sunday. I'll have a go at something then, just have to work out what that something is.

OK, I'm in with another B&W image, this time a macro. I have called it 'Corrugation'. Not sure it's a real word though!

This time really nothing from me. Even though I have plenty of cardboard at the moment, I haven't got the time to find, or think of,  something new in the commonplace.

The kids decided to play hangman on a box that had had furniture delivered in it.  I thought "observe" was an unusual (and cryptic) choice of words so I tried to go a little arty with it.
