Welcome to the Neowin Monthly Photography Challenge!

This month's challenge closes on the 24th July.

The entered photos will be collected into a single thread with a poll, these will be voted on by everyone.
 

As last month's winner, Warwagon, has chosen this month's theme: "THAT time of the month!"

 

Basically it is something which is unique to everyone which they do once a month. It can be anything, take out the trash, wash a car, pay bills, ANYTHING!

If an image is not submitted using the sites listed, it will NOT be accepted for the competition this month forward, the EXIF data is required for proof of entry

Don't most people do all of the above more than once a month? :laugh: Except maybe wash their car, I don't do that once a month either, that's more like 3 times a week, haha.

 

I know what you mean though, sounds like a good choice. Got a couple ideas already so I'll have to enter this one!

Well, if you only take your trash out once a month it could make for an interesting photo subject. :D

....... huh ........ " That Time of the Month "   ..... Really? 

 

What!?

 

Warwagon cleans his ears once a month?

 

Good grief!

 

Fine....

 

I will ponder upon it....

 

( Can't we do... Macro, Landscape, Black and White, Long Exposure Night time..  ? ? ? )

 

No wonder there are to few people who enter.... Sigh

 

Good luck everyone...

We we can, but the winner has to pick that theme obviously! But in all honesty if you should go down that road it should be "Black and white Bridges"... "Macro watches"  and not  something as generalized.

 

Also... Let me be the first to say, we have been officially WarWagoned!  :p

 

I wasn't able to enter previous month because of work, but I will do so this time!
