I have this forum on the death watch right now. If this place does not do a quick turnaround then I hate to say this but the Thunderdome will be a thing of the past.
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.

Agreed sir.  I wonder though...if it's not a seasonal thing? Might we see if it picks up when people are finally through with snow and all?  Personally...I really had no desire to get out and about for myself let alone doing it where the subject was given to me and trying to find the appropriate shot.
We still have snow on the ground (and more forecast for tomorrow) so I won't be in the real "shooting" mood until I can see some color coming up.
But...that's just me speaking.
And nothing says that -even with Thunderdome gone- someone couldn't make a singular challenge and throw up a poll for grins?
But you are right...it's been dead silence in here since last fall.
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Hopefully it will pick up! It's just harder with the snow, finding good pictures with that, and for me school. But this spring/summer if it picks up I would love to keep going with the Thunderdome. Something fun to do with photography.

Agreed.  We have enough new people here that may jump in if they see what this is all about.
I'll answer your call.  Name a couple of subjects so we can figure out what we want to shoot. I will throw out anything Memorial Day related as one topic.  Feel free to throw out a couple more if you want.
Once we get the topic sorted out, we can work on the time frame.

Your call.  ;)

How about picking something that's not related to just one country?

I thought it would be safe since we are her and I are basically in the same chunk of real estate. Others can take it and broaden it if they so choose though, since it's a wide open topic.

Ah yes of course, it's 'head to head'. That's my fault for not paying attention! I was just taken aback by not knowing what memorial day is. I'll scoot off to wikipedia and find out.

SB, I have to put this on hold for a few days kiddo.  We presently have about a half a foot of water in our basement and it's still coming in a little faster than my pump is taking it out.  I will get back with you around the weekend and I will give this a go. You have some nice topics to choose from so we can go with one of those for sure.  I'll let you know at weeks end if that's ok with you?
