[these are older photos of mine, and no claim is made that these are "stellar" images - I was just trying to provide some examples of how experimentation can be one path to serendipity]

Walking that path means you will have more misses than hits, but the hits will surprise you. Happy accidents can be sought. Go forth and challenge your camera!

in the same vein, when i switch subjects, i take a shot before focussing on the new one.
but this below is a motion blur just for the fun of it.

I was thinking more along the line of in camera experimentation for this particular challenge...throw caution to the wind and see what happens when taking the photograph.

Just noticed this thread. I've been MIA for a while now, and this looks like just the kind of creative kick in the pants that I need. Mind if I join, as long as I can get the rust off of my camera? What a great group!
