Think popping a water balloon and capturing the moment it explodes - or whine running in to a glass, or someone running, capturing them almost floating in mid air.... it is fairly open to interpretation. Strike a match and capture the flame as it starts burning.

 

So this is one for indoors, or outdoors. Big or small... just have fun with it :)

I kinda thought that, but wasn't really sure, as I hadn't really noticed people abiding by that rule *cough*MrGuppy*cough* :p

 

Adding that bit of extra info would make it more understandable.

Basically when you submit your photo you need to include a suggestion for what you would want as a theme, so an idea could be Mono, Candid, Water, Motion or maybe something a bit more open to the imagination like I Can See for Miles or You +1. You can think of anything!

Bit pants (even got my finger in the shot, lol)

 

It is/was a "Living Image" photo.

 

Unfortunately, it turns out there is no way to export these images, so you can only view them on your phone via the Nokia Camera app :/

 

Thought I might as well post it anyway :)

 

I've got 24hrs to think of a theme for next month, right? :rolleyes:
