There's a fantastic thread on the other AE which is meant to inspire you to drive your car.

Basically, someone sets a challenge to get a photo of your car in an interesting situation, and includes a "marker" (something specific in the shot, eg hat/sunnies/stuffed toy/vegetable) on the car so that it's highly likely that the photo is current and not an archive item. The idea is to make you want to drive your car.

Example - a couple Thursdays ago I had a slow day ahead and didn't know what to do, apart from knowing I wanted to take the Lotus for a burn - however I didn't really know where to go.

It was just after 7am, and someone posited a photo challenge of "Today's challenge is now a rear photo of your Lotus in front if the gates to a wildlife park or national parks entrance sign with a hat siting on the engine cover or rear wing"... suddenly, I had a reason - or at least a feasible excuse - to go for a drive.

A fantastic drive of ~250km just to get a photo that some guy on the internet wanted. :scared:

:cool:

So, let's start our own geo/photo challenge.

It's not about best photo or best car, however creativity and talent and vehicle isn't excluded from judging. I'm not sure where things will go from here, it may die a lonely death, or it may start a whole new board with individual threads for each challenge. Everyone regardless of photography talent and vehicle is encouraged to get involved.

Do we move onto the next challenge nominated by the "winner" as soon as it's posted, or do we leave each one a week and see how many members can get such a pic, or do we maintain that a given challenge stays in effect until at least 5 or 10 members have completed it? I don't know, but it'll be fun to explore.

So, stolen directly from Aussie Elises cos I think it's easy and cool and funny....

Challenge #1: A photo of your car by the ocean, partially obscured by your thumb.

Ok, so how about a photo of your car on top of a hill, overlooking a town. And just for fun throw in a model of your car somewhere in the picture (or any model car is fine). Go for it :-)
