dilbarmano, I love your entry. That's exactly what I hoped to see this month!

Thanks! Glad to hear you like it!

Now I still have to get my entry together... :?

Finally, I got my idea off my storyboard and into the Lab :)

Had great fun thinking of a story/theme or whatever it is Bjorn calls it. But I gotta say it was a great call Bjorn, well done for that m8.

Decided to call my series "Lemmings"

A little info about Lemmings,
"On occasion, and particularly in the case of the Norway lemmings in Scandinavia, large migrating groups will reach a cliff overlooking the ocean. They will stop until the urge to press on causes them to jump off the cliff and start swimming, they then swim to exhaustion and death. Lemmings are also often pushed into the sea as more and more lemmings arrive at the shore."

A bit like people wanting to cross the road I thought and a bit of subtlety applied by leaving the traffic lights in colour.
Hopefully I am on the right track with this Months assignment. It has been very encouraging to have some votes for my previous entries, thanks all for the votes.

Somewhat unusually, I have an idea for this assignment, but one of the shots I was going to do is rather similar to Alan's last one.

A bit of thinking later, I think I have something even better :D Tonight I shall have to go shopping for subjects...

No need for apologies. There's a few different variations I can try which will be less similar.

I've been rethinking my idea. One of the subjects I was going to buy tonight. No, I couldn't do the shot I want in store. I saw the price and... it was a bit much just to get a single photo so I didn't get it. I need a plan B now...

And that's mine in...

Now that's out of the way, I'll mention my original plan I didn't follow through on. I was going to do a food story like Vintahah, but with an egg/chicken or duck. e.g. pic 1 would be an egg, pic 2 shows a live bird in the wild. 3rd pic would show the either a whole roasted one or just the bones after eating. But I'm not a fan of chicken and whole roast duck isn't easy to buy whole around here...

The 2nd plan I also passed on was alternative food e.g. put chocolate eggs in a egg carton.
