    huwevans Not Really Here

    Following a suggestion in the Lounge, we are going to try our own little version of a Radio 4 PM programme photography project. The idea is to get as many of you as possible to take a picture on a given day, and then post them here. It will run monthly, and if it proves popular we should build up an interesting (hopefully!) photographic log of the daily activities of forum members. Our version is to be called FirstView, and will run throughout 2007.

    The first day of each month will be designated as FirstView days. The idea is that on the day you will produce a picture that captures some part of your day - it could be some activity, or a place you went to, or something that was happening around you, or just about anything that says something about your day. We don't need a title, but we'd like to know the basic details of your picture - time, place, activity, etc. A sample submission could look something like this:

    Participation is entirely voluntary, and the usual forum rules will apply for posted pictures. (See HOW TO POST IMAGES - MAXIMUM SIZES - Free progs - Tutorials... if you're unsure about any of this.) We will have to rely on your honesty about when the pictures were taken, but images not taken on the designated day would obviously somewhat invalidate the project, so please don't 'cheat'! And if you can't participate on any particular occasion, don't let that worry you. This isn't meant to be a tightly controlled scientific experiment - just a bit of fun, which might also prove to be interesting.

    As with the Monthly Competition, there will be a special thread for posting FirstView pictures, and another one for any comments you want to make. The image posting thread will be closed for new submissions a couple of days after the event, so please be prompt about posting your contribution. If people are going to be away on holiday, or are otherwise unable to upload images within that time, then we can temporarily re-open the thread by arrangement.

    If there are any questions or clarifications needed feel free to ask below.
