I'll second Snook's oh no. Maybe you could do guest ones? If a topic really appeals to you from time to time? Otherwise we'll miss you :(

Here is an 'outtake' from the last challenge, it was my fav pic but I didn't think it really showed any emotion...

That is gorgeous RV, great capture :thumbsup:

I'm afraid I'm also pulling out :( I seem to have so little time to pick up my camera these days, that when I do it is just for the challenge. I know this is good as it is making me try new things, but I'm missing doing what I like best which is bugs, wildlife and pets. While this doesn't stretch my range or make me try new things, it's what I like doing and would like to concentrate on :o

Good luck and have fun for the rest of the themes, and I will still try to follow and comment on the blog when I can :)

I've spent the last week deciding whether to stick with this or not and I think I need to bow out too. As stupid as it sounds, having a fortnightly commitment at the moment has been feeling a bit more like pressure than fun even though I know it shouldn't and I think I just need to concentrate on getting well and not feeling forced to pick up my camera when I'm not up to it. I took a handful of photos of Justice when we were at the beach on Monday and I still haven't finished editing them because I can only manage a couple at a time and I've been booked in for a full day photography course at the zoo for tomorrow since last year, as I missed the one I was supposed to do last year due to a migraine, and just the thought of also trying to get this fortnight's theme done as well feels exhausting. I'm so sorry guys. I've really loved seeing everyone's photos and will still pop in and check them out and comment on them but I need to bail on you.

Has anyone heard from kja at all since she posted that she was dropping out? She didn't reply to the messages in here asking if she was okay and hasn't replied to a facebook message I sent her to see if she's alright either. :(

No haven't noticed kja around - hope you're ok Kristin if you see this :)

Snook - Is that the Chris Bray course? I did that a couple of years ago and had a great day, so hope you make it and enjoy yourself :D

No, it's with the zoo's photographer Lindsay Poland. Here's the link. I'm only doing the advanced course as I thought the intro one might be a bit too basic.

phew, I don't feel so bad about abandoning as well, and something along the reasons of CC

and even with my choice of theme for this fortnight, I feel what I could do is just gap-filling, rather than a nice thought-out process, work and my work-times are really draining me atm changes in rosters seem constant, sleep all over the place and time for things I want to do few and far between, I have so many things I want to do, things I have to do and I keep running out of time even when I get days off, like today, gone already ... I need to win the lotto, get my work time back

It's sad to see everyone bailing but yeah, I definitely don't feel as bad about knowing I'm not the only one. I really did love the idea of it so maybe we could all pick it up again later in the year or at the beginning of next year if we're in a better position to keep up with it.

I'm very sorry to say I'm the same - I just have so much I'm trying to keep on top of at the moment, and I couldn't find the creative energy to go try to take nice photos. I'm very sorry. I'd love to have another go next year as I thought it was a great project and liked the challenge of trying to do things I wouldn't normally do.

:( Oh sadness. Sorry things aren't going well for people.

Is there anyone left? I did wonder if once a month might make it easier for people to continue if they felt like it? It's been challenging but enjoyable, so is anyone else interested in continuing?

I am interested in continuing and happy with swapping to once a month if it makes it easier for people. I loved checking in and seeing how everyone interpreted the same theme so differently as well as making me move out of my comfort zone.

It is sad so many re having a tough time and unable to continue :(

I have however slacked off this fortnight as i thought no one else was still here. LOL. So, I am yet to finish my pics for this theme. I have missed so many great opportunities - went to the beach, took my camera but by the time I got there the weather had turned and the wind was stupidly strong and my camera is not weather sealed so I left it int he car. Went to the Barossa Valley, took my camera and half way home remembered I was going to stop off to get a shot of the Valley. Went to town, planned some photos of some of the old buildings and got part way to town to realise I forgot my camera. LOL

I'm happy to continue on but maybe we can make it once a month to make it easier?

I also haven't yet shot this theme due to moving house

So how about we extend the shooting for this theme for another fortnight from today? Then we'll choose a theme per month? I'd love to see people still participating :thumbsup:
