Challenge has finished
Your assignment: Take a photo of something you dislike, and try to see it in a different way. Or try something entirely new. Some examples: If you're a nature photog who doesn't do people photography, take a portrait. If you don't like cats, photograph one. Hate spiders? Well...if it's a phobia talk with your doctor before attempting to use them as a subject, and if they're poisonous steer clear, otherwise give it a try. ;) You get the idea. I hope.

Never been interested in marine/aquatic subjects, so I spent the afternoon at the Aquarium. First time I've ever been to one, and I've only ever taken one photo of a fish before this. It was interesting, challenging often (fast moving fish in low light with no flash allowed). I'm glad I went and gave something new a try, but I'm still not that interested in them as photography subjects.
