Dang, you are organized!

Not really -- I tell people I'm great at designing filing systems but terrible at filing. Unfortunately, it's really hard to get anyone to volunteer to be a recording secretary ... :-(

I forgot to mention I also make an index print (sheet of thumbnails) of each folder, also in PDF format, in case I (or anyone) needs to scan them visually without access to the files.

I don't have anything keyworded either. I keep them in folders with a name describing the session and in parent folders by year. I can glance over those names and recall which ones probably have car pics.

I have a lot of cool stuff from SEMA last year, but lots of crowds and midday sun qualify most of them as just good snapshots.

Is a truck an automobile or would it be a dnmc since it says: not any other kind of vehicle

Technically a car is designed to transport people. Also the definition of an automobile includes passengers: a passenger vehicle designed for operation on ordinary roads and typically having four wheels and a gasoline or diesel internal-combustion engine.

So I guess using images of trucks (or even busses) is probably DNMC. And that’s a pity, I merely have images of trucks or busses :-(


Thank you very much Kees
You have confirmed my opinion that trucks are not suitable.

You're going to make me choose among 50,000 images?! I think I'd just rather take one more terrible picture, unless you make it a Special Rule that the picture must be shot before the challenge is posted. :-)


Sounds good to me, let's go with it! ;-)

Seriously ... something that seems like a great idea - photograph it.

"What were they thinking?"
An idea gone astray ... as in, what were they thinking? Capture the lunacy.

Can we do those in Extended Editing? :-)

Hey! Those are in the challenge suggestion queue already. Can't use those. ... at least that's what direction I was given earlier in this thread. :-)
