The latest challenge was to walk/travel half a mile from your home and take just five photos and post them. The idea being to make you look around you and think about what you are photograhing.
Take a look at Yvonne's, Louise's and Eileen's photos to see what they came up with. Here are mine. I headed out of the village on the way to St Austell and stopped in a layby then went in a field on the other side of the road.
New shoot - not sure what of, initially I thought brambles, but really not sure. Loved the colours on the leaves.

View towards the clay destrict - as it is known. The track was meant to lead the eye in but don't think it really worked.
AV mode,ss 1/60, f9, ISO 200, fl 60mm, ex comp +1/3
Entrance to the field and the farm shop sign where Amanda works and where my cards are sold :)

Wandered further into the field and found this rubbish, no doubt left by the farmer, I know it is his field but it wouldn't hurt just to pick it up and dispose of it would it?? Goodness knows what is in the bottle.

A very common weed, I remember as a child someone told me this was called mother die and if you smelt this you would wet the bed and your mother would die!! You won't believe how long I beieved that for and held my breath everytime I went passed it to avoid smelling it!!! How sad eh? lol. Don't like this image as it is out of focus.

I think the third is my favourite as I feeel it tells a story more than the others. Thanks for looking and feel free to pass comments for improvement. :)
The next challenge is to take photos of familar objects/views from an 'unseen' perspective. So look for a different angle, a different level, get low, get high, if it is a popular scene you are photographing try and take a different photo of it. Upload by the 13th May. Most of all have fun and use the camera and whilst taking the photos think about using a deep depth of field, ie a high f stop number (maybe f9 upwards) to get as much as possible in focus in the image.
