The purpose of this Assignment is to get out and have fun using our cameras, maybe learning a few things along the way, so pictures should be new as often as possible (though if you have a relatively new picture that fits a category, you can use it). All cameras and skill levels are welcome.



This could be one that we run for the year. No prizes can be rewarded other than recognition for a job well done!



Where possible, please use pictures taken from 15 July 2014 as the intent of this assignment is to get out and about. However, given that this is running from the start of 2014, if you do have a recent (2013'ish) picture already on file, by all means post it - especially if you would like to share your best pictures taken during 2013!
If you post a picture, please share what you did to take the picture irrespective of whether you shoot with a point and shoot or a dSLR or phone camera. For those with a dSLR, please include your ISO, aperture and shutter speed; as well as a brief description of anything that might help others learn from your experience.

e-Scapes! I just love the escapism that is to be had when looking down the barrel of the camera. And the beauty of this kind of feeling is that you can feel it in any sort of e-scape.



This assignment is all about Scapes - Land or City.

Morning, Noon or Night. Whether on holiday or in the throes of daily life. You'll be viewing a scape that can be capture by your camera.



Please share your shots!
