    Oh, I have a picture from New Years (this year) that would go perfectly for this challenge. Would that be new enough?

    I hope this qualifies. I was sitting here this a.m., sipping my tea in my recliner. I noticed that the turntable tonearm and platter somewhat framed things. So I propped up a Bob Dylan 45 cover (read the journaling), and focused on the title of it. What I like about this is that it also shows a bit of the frozen, snow-covered outdoors. This may or may not qualify for a journaling challenge, I was a bit wordy. LOL!

    I took three different photos, one through a toilet paper tube, one through a glass, and one through the blind of the bedroom window. Then I remembered that Pipa was probably sleeping on the terrace and maybe I could take a picture of her through the shutters. Luckily she was sleeping right outside the door. What I didn't expect was for her to turn around and present me with a pose worthy of the challenge. Thank you, Pipina.

    At first I was stumped by this challenge, then I started walking around the house picking up stuff and looking through it and then I had trouble choosing which photo I liked best. The one through the oven door was pretty cool. But I liked the measuring cup best.

    This challenge reminded me of several photos I've taken in past years of my daughter playing in jungle gyms, and a trip many years ago to the space museum in Alamagordo where my daughter and her cousin were inside one of the engines. So, I used a toilet paper roll to look through and capture this cute snapshot of my kitty. One thing, it really helped with blocking out the bright light coming from the window.

    I took a few pictures and couldn't decide which one to use, so I used all of them.

    Oh this was a good challenge - loved thinking outside the box. I decided to try level 3 - shooting like I was inside a box of nuggets. An indulgence I best enjoy in the car between taking kids places and sitting in quiet. I'm sure I looked like a crazy person today sitting in the parking lot near Chick-fil-A this morning trying to get a shot I liked but I managed to get one I was happy with.

    Does the photo have to be NEW?

    YES- The entire point of this challenge is to make you think specifically about the photos you take and hopefully inspire you to try something new. If you just happened to have a photo from 3 years ago that fits this challenge...AWESOME, I'd love to see it!....BUT NO...It WILL NOT work for this challenge. This challenge is not due today...you still have 10 days left in the month, so no need to rush into taking a photo just for the sake of taking a photo TODAY. I did 2 bonus LEAP chats this month...the first one on Jan 3 and the other on Jan 11. There is even a thread in the learning pad this month dedicated to this subject. I'm also hosting a technique scrap tonight for this challenge. So...we've been talking about this for the whole month. I have a list of people who attended the chats and I am prepared for their photos to be NEW *since Jan 3*....but other than that, the photo should be taken AFTER your read the challenge....it's not a challenge that you can just look through your stash and find one that fits. The rest of the LO is 100% up to you! This is a PHOTO challenge. I am being really picky about this because it is a photo specific challenge...but it's always good to remember that these are "challenges" and all for fun......so enjoy and feel free to pick out some choice words for my nickname
