This month is going to be my first "on assignment" post.

The subject is not what I would normally go out and shoot and thats one of the reasons I'm going to post something. I figure its good for me as a photographer to go out and try and take a photo outside of my comfort zone.

Having said that I've just been out and about looking for something and its HARD :? :? :? :? :? :? :?

Taken a couple of photos that are not bad but are also not good :roll:

So I have a couple of shots 'banked', now I just need to get something better

Im finding this one a toughie. Visited a few construction sites each one has boarding all the way around obscuring the view, A few you could only see the top part of cranes and house roofs. I will continue looking in the hope i will be able to find something of interest for this month. Sue

Same above poster. There is brand new huge gym going up on campus but it's completely blocked off and the outside of the building is nearly complete. Can't find a interesting angle but I'll keep an eye out.

If my car ever gets fixed I will go get something for this. Seems like every time I get my car from the shop it messes up again. :/

Good shots so far! :)

There are no really interesting "constructions" here.
As soon as I find some time I might go looking for something. Let me call it "cycling tour with my nephews" or something like that. They may help looking for something interesting. :lol:

EDIT: I went around the town today just finding nothing. I shot some photos and wait for them to get developed. Yes, EOS 33 at work! If they are no good I'll try finding something else...

I like this months assignment. I like it that its challenging and will have me out scouting for construction. I really hope to get something this month. I've been out for a while.
Good luck to you all!

I think your being tooo kind Phil but I'm dead chuffed you think it worthy of a +ve comment.

Its been a very very very interesting process. Firstly going out looking for the kind of image I wouldn't normally take, secondly thinking of what would make an image to fit the 'assignment' and be good enough to post without feeling embarrassed of it. Lastly picking one of the images I took to actually post, I'm a terrible editor and struggle with the decision making.

I'd love to know the process others go through to get to the point of posting their image. Some folks casual snaps make my efforts look sadly lacking leaving me admiring but also slightly green with envy.

It would also be interesting to see the photos that we're taken for this 'assignment' but didn't make the final cut. I had ideas for images but just couldn't get them to work.

The Canadian Museum of Human Rights is currently being built here in Winnipeg (I have no idea why they chose such a small city like us to build a large, national museum), so I'll try to get out there to take some pictures. If I don't find the time for that, I have a couple of photo projects that I could work on at home that could fit the theme.

Nice shot of the onion dome under restoration Oleg, but I think your earlier shot of the Eiffel Tower was much more exciting, energetic and 'edgy'. It reminded me of those fantastic b/w photos of steelworkers in New York taking their lunch one step from oblivion.

Made a shot from the roof of the kungfu academy in china where I currently reside. Its a 15th century temple that is being renovated. Maybe not the best composition or photo quality but hopefully i can get some points for rarity or something. I did not know what else to post.

It's OK - it just looks a bit too dark on my monitor. :wink: And I'd love to see the colors. :roll:

@vdjong: I love the sky but sadly both cranes are cut off.

@ianganderton: Great shot, beautiful sunset and nice buildings.

@mikeroch: Another picture I really like! A shot of the shadow in the background only could have looked very nice as well. It's a very interesting view. Our accident prevention regulations here would never allow such work. No safety shoe! My god! No glove! My god! No helmet! My god! No safety bond! My god! :roll:

Nikonfreak - its seems quite dark on my monitor too.

Jiko - thanks, glad you like it :D

I really like the composition of yours with the weeds in the foreground giving the feel of a deserted/forgotten site.

vdjong - I like the sky and the light too

mikeroch - having worked plenty in Africa as well as else where in the world got to say I think your image has really captured developing world construction very well

So I wonder who's going to post on the last day. I can sense dubaiphil is lurking out there. He's got some of the biggest and most outrageous construction sites in the world on his doorstep :lol:
