    Is this worth a try - I've copied this from another (Bike Forum)

    Mods - if it works maybe it needs moving out of this section


    This idea is blatantly stolen from a number of photo forums, I plagiarised it from BMWMOA, (BMW Motorbikes of America)

    What follows is the explanation from that American site, so sorry if it's a little patronising, it's how they make things "inclusive".

    Someone will post a picture. The next forum member should post another picture that reminds him or her of the first in some way: the subject matter, location, color, shape, theme, or other association. The idea is similar to free association in Freudian psychology: "I will say a word, then you say the first word that enters your mind." Instead of words, however, we use photos.

    Example:

    Photo 1: A Trials Bike in the sand Dunes
    Photo 2: children playing in a sand pit
    Photo 3: a sandy beach
    Photo 4: a surfer catching a wave
    Photo 5: a skier doing a slalom
    Photo 6: etc.

    The photos may have been taken at any time, but they must by your photo taken by you with your MTF

    NOTE: In order for this to work, you must respond to the photo immediately preceding yours. Part of the challenge here is timing. Please do not respond to previous photos--only the last one in the thread. Responding to images further back breaks the continuity of the free association.

    This works best if the photos speak for themselves, so please refrain from any text. If you want to discuss any images, please start a photo association discussion thread.

    OK, here goes:

    No it can be ANY image taken at ANY time with your MTF

    all you have to do is "associate" with the LAST image posted NOT any of the earlier ones

    with NO comments at all - the images are the narrative and path
