I just thought it's a bit easier than the last ones so we can hope for more participants. :wink:

Still I've got no real idea... :lol:

Yes, let's try and get 3 or more pages full of entries this month, it's a great, and indeed very broad theme. Should not be too difficult.

I had an image but it was just a front end loader in front of an everyday construct site I took from my car :lol: If the sky will clear back up like it was last week I have some great ideas.

Nice topic this month. I think everybody can find some sort equipment lying around somewhere to make a photo of.

Now the only problem is how to get that really original stunning shot....

My only question is can it be all kinds of equipment? for example a toaster or coffee machine, ipod, lawnmower, etc..

I'm liking 'On Assignment' a lot.

Its not just a question of what I consider equipment but I guess its also trying to work out what other people will think of as equipment. hmmmmm

I've got some idea's of what equipment I'd like to be the subject and some contexts

My G/F doesn't like whoever it was who came up with the On Assignment concept. She says it was bad enough that I am always looking for shots whenever/whatever we are up to. Now I have a specific topic every month its even worse.

Just entered Oct. Spent last month looking at snapping diggers, holes, tools etc but didn't get a decent image. I think it is good discipline to have a topic you may not have picked yourself that you need to find an get a shot for.

Hey Trevor, you work with hydrodynamics? I have a Master degree in Marine Technology with special emphasis on hydrodynamics. It's not the main emphasis of my current work though
I have some pics from the towing tank at my Uni too, and at first of course yours was taken there :P
