First one from me, and a nice symmetry as it was my daughter's first ever sports day today:

Stuck inside waiting for a delivery man, so I can't get far, and don't want to use up my macro ideas in case it rains, so this'll have to do for now

Haven't shot something yet. While I was driving over to my Mum's this morning I saw several shots of great potential: Old couple hosing their driveway down, the intricate tatoos of a bus driver's arm leaning out of a window, a very bouncy dog on the end of a leash. But I was in traffic and by the time I'd have stopped the shot would have been gone...

I'd vote 2, or maybe 3, but TBH I think they're all terrific.

No strange looks, but someone called the police who very politely asked to check my camera for gusset shots!

I did refrain from asking the policewoman if she'd consider "private" modelling when they agreed it was a misunderstanding and let me on my way...

Good that the police were polite about it, shame they had to be called out.

There's something highly amusing about animal's noses, so here is my dogs. Granted, its not a cow's, moose's, ant eater's or elephant nosed shrew, but it'll have to do, for now.

Seriously? Crikey, talk about paranoia on the streets.
I was down on the beach this afternoon but nothing much good and I didn't think to take anything with me to photograph like you and your robot chap, it's given me an idea for the future though.
Here's my effort for today, unless I take something else in the next six hours.

Together

Clockity - I had a similar idea for later in the month

Not an astounding start, but here's the first one from me:

I ummed and ahhed a lot about joining this, since I only got halfway when I did this challenge before, but I think I'm going to have a go. My PC is playing up at the moment and I need to replace it, but I've set up my macbook's display with my Spyder and loaded Capture NX on it, so should be ok to go.

I've uploaded my day one pic to flickr, the set is here:

and this is today's, taken in the fields opposite where I work:

Colour me uninspired today - took some nice one's of my youngest this morning, only to find that I appear to have coffee shakes on them all - every one of them's blurred

Anyhoo - here's mine for today:

Despite my pig encounter it may be a slow start for me today- my shots suck. Off to see Pentangle now so I may get lucky with some hippy pensioner shots on my compact.

I saw a good street shot today and of course no camera with me as I was in town with the family so too busy keeping an eye on them. A bus stopped with an ad for the new metal gear solid game - big logo saying "guns of the patriots" - just as a chap in camos and urban gear stopped alongside with a roll of black underlay on his shoulder, which looked kinda like you would hold a grenade launcher.

Away out to shoot something mundane instead..
