    The idea is to photograph something not particularly photogenic from a typical photographic viewpoint but make it interesting, anything at all, use your photographic skills, you post processing skills, whatever to make the bland...exciting!!

    Here's a pretty poor example, I'll try to find something a bit better but this gets the ball rolling.

    Har har har. :biggrin:

    I'll look through my Flickr photos... this is something I do frequently thanks to the summer of photos challenge. Really taught me to look for subjects in unexpected places instead of waiting for "photogenic" stuff to come along.

    A few of mine.

    This is the most recent one, a bit garish for some I'm sure but I was playing with the PP to bring out the elements that drew my eye initially and abstract it somewhat.

    Another in a similar vein where I really liked the end result

    And one of a truly every day item that certainly wouldn't be on my list of photogenic subjects normally :biggrin:
