Second: I have an announcement! Starting next week, September 1st, the Monday Photo Shoot will be taken over by our good friend Carly, over at Ellipsis. This meme, started by John Scalzi on By The Way on March 7, 2005, remains close to my heart; but I've been getting a little burned out in it recently. Carly will bring fresh ideas and a new and better attitude to the Monday Photo Shoot, and I hope that many of you will support her efforts by participating, even if you haven't done so in a while.
So, since this is the last time I'll be assigning the topic, I really should make it a good one. Trouble is, I've had two competing ideas in my head all day. They both start with a D, so let's use that as an excuse to combine the topics in one MPS:
New Monday Photo Shoot #35: Departure, or Destruction! Photograph either a departure of some sort - people walking away, a train pulling out of the station, a graduation, whatever - or evidence of destruction. If your photos combine the two somehow, that's even better!
The source of the departure concept is obvious, even though I'm not going anywhere. I'll still be playing along, just not organizing.
As for the destruction, here's my inspiration:
tried to claw her way through the door in her attempt to depart from the room!
Your turn! Here's your last chance to play along with a Monday Photo Shoot topic that comes from me personally. Please don't be a no-show! Put the photo or photos in your blog or journal with a link back here, and don't forget to leave a link to your entry in the comments below. I'll be back in a week to highlight your entries - and Carly will start off a new era with her New New Monday Photo Shoot the same evening! Have fun!
