Street/Public Building: Candid Captures Challenge finished on Wednesday, 07 Jul 2010 We all walk the streets of our towns or city's at times. Just the other day, I decided to take my camera with me, because I knew I would have some time to take a few pictures in the area I was working in, after I finished up. I walked around the downtown area of the small town and grabbed some candid images without being too intrusive (I used a 70-300, but I was still close... 50 feet away or so. So I wasn't "hiding").. Anyway, I did get a few interesting captures.. Capture people doing normal things, Talking to others, Lighting up a cigarette, Talking on the phone, Dining at a street cafe, what ever. For some, this will be a challenge just to take the photo. Give it a go.... Remember: Take pictures of people "In Publicly Owned Areas" .( Not Private Property) is legal in most countries. Just don't be a jerk and pushy... don't interrupt their space, except to take a capture or two. That's way I used a 70-300, to allow me some distance, without attracting their attention.

Winner: Milwaukee Art Museum
Milwaukee WI USA Challenge finished on Tuesday, 06 Jul 2010 OK, if people can have challenges of their home towns or favorite city, so can I. Milwaukee, often derisively called a suburb of Chicago, has itself many interesting and unique features. Your job is to find photographically interesting features of Milwaukee. You are on your honor but be prepared to be challenged to say exactly where your photo was taken. The pictures must be from within the city limits of Milwaukee: no suburbs allowed! While the downtown area has many good angles, also try to find other points of interest.
Winner: Having a Guest For Lunch
I got ya! Challenge finished on Monday, 05 Jul 2010 This theme is about showing us photos that would be impossible to take without the camera in your pocket. Photos, where the DSLR would take too much attention or distract the photographed subject. Photos, where the huge DoF is rather an advantage than otherwise ;)
