Interesting theme this month. Not sure what I will come up with but it will take some thought :D

My university campus is one giant construction pit at the moment, so all I need to do now is find an interesting shot!

I deliberately kept it quite open to interpretation for this month, James. There should be something for everyone to shoot near where they live.

Anyone getting up high, shooting down and giving a good interpretation of a tilt shift will get my vote!

Of course you are! djfsolo even won two consecutive times by posting in his own theme. Please share your work Phil, would love to see the construction work that inspired this theme.

Excited about this one! My house is being rebuild and I’m a bit fed up with it, but now I have the opportunity to see it in a different way. (Maybe I should express my "anger" towards construction…)

Spanish construction might be tricky for an action shot - maybe a very long timelapse?

You are right Phil. :( But all pictures have to be taken within this month, and I am not sure construction goes quick enough over here...

@ dubaiphil - I am sure I will be able to find a good shot. There are quite a few construction sites around so will take a look there. :D

I have an awsome idea with a lot of post-production but 1-month is not enough time. Take a pic of a site that is about 1/3 to 1/2 complete, then take another at the end. Creative cutting and pasting to make the final product have area's of incomplete mixed with it.

hiking mike - that reminded me one pinhole photography - a few days (months? ) exposure, with details coming from the bare pilons to the finished building. It looked pretty awesome, but i cant remember where did i saw this picture.
