    So for those of you that wanted to join in the rules are pretty straight forward. A picture a day from July 4th to September 3rd. If you miss a day its not big deal. The idea is to get folks out and taking pictures not to play lunchroom monitor. As this is an m43 forum I expect most folks to be using m43 cameras but I am going to say that it is not a requirement. Think of it more as a suggestion. If you happen to sneak the off iPhone, NEX or X100 image in there I doubt the earth will stop spinning on its axis. :eek: 

    Let the games begin!

    Count me in :) 

    It'll be interesting....I've never participated in a photo-a-day type challenge so I'm looking forward to it.

    ...and because I realized that the above is from my NEX and I can't start this out without an m43 image...from the venerable E-P1 and P20

    After a busy day at home I went to my friend's house for a little Independence Day gathering and met Samson. He kind of reminded me of a 1970s tv cop show pimp.

    I just saw this thread and while I might have trouble keeping up with this. I would like to at least attempt this. I just took some quick pics messing around with my em-5 and the 12-50mm lens' macro function.

    Great thread, dixeyk! I don't know that I can keep up either, but I'm going to try. :smile: Here's my first pic with the 45/1.8, taken yesterday.

    It's not great (maybe not even good), but it's a place to start...

    As Homer might say, "Mmmmm....Wild Turkey."

    What lens is that taken with? Appears from the specular highlights to be a mirror lens.
