It is the 14th and not a single image yet....

 

Guess we have a slow start to the year? All the best for 2014 - and happy shooting...

 

Table Mountain in South Africa is Flat, well Kinda Flat....

 

My one tire was a little flat. And I live in a Flat.. if that makes sense.

ps... next topic should be a fun one to make people think a bit.... I think the next topic should be Frozen in Time :)

 

We can get those super fast shutters going, and get some drops in mid air, some birds frozen in flight, maybe even hadouken or levitation photography?

 

This should be a fun year!

Says the one who just laid something on the floor and took a picture of it? :laugh:

 

Flat isn't a very exciting photography concept because flat makes a boring picture most of the time. Given plenty of time, I'm certain we could find quality "flat" photos, but it's not a concept I'd frequently find pictures that conform to. If I still lived in Oklahoma, I'd have some awesome landscape opportunities, but around here there isn't much that's flat, haha.
