"School"

Anything to do with school: Classes, books, school buildings, lesson plans, students, teachers..................

HOW you create it is up to you. The idea is to challenge you to think outside of the box. Be creative and artistic for this one. Set it up, stage it, enhance it in post processing, or just get lucky. Your creativity is limited only by your imagination.

IMPORTANT TO READ THE FOLLOWING:

Let's get shooting! CREATIVITY/TECHNIQUE rules in this challenge, but there are a few guidelines:


1. Any photo submitted for a monthly assignment must be taken using a Nikon Camera!

2. All submissions must be taken during the month specified in the assignment thread and taken by YOU! (Please insure that EXIF is either posted with the photo or if it gets messed up, hold yourself to the honor system and add the minimum Exif data of the Camera used and the date the photo was taken to your post).
If using a composite, all photos in the final shot must be taken in the month of the contest and MUST be taken by the poster.

3. Other than that, it's all up to your interpretation of the theme. Any photo will be accepted, SOOC or edited, doesn't matter.

4. Photos must be posted in this thread to be considered. Links to photos will not be considered an entry (In other words, no Flikr, Photobucket, or similar links)

5. Only THREE entries per member for each assignment. Please post entries separately (1 photo per post) and number the entry.

6. Entries will be judged by the number of likes received.

7. The top 5 shots will be displayed in a separate thread and will be displayed in no particular order.

8. This is intended to be a FUN challenge. No critiques unless specifically asked. Also, please limit posts to just photos and brief descriptions/titles. Any comments/discussion should occur elsewhere, PLEASE.

As listed in other challenges, please note: NO CASH OR PRIZES will be awarded for this Monthly Assignment.

HAVE FUN!


*To clarify time for start of the assignment, it is 0000 UTC/GMT the first day of the month (similar to the weekly challenges) and ends at 23:59 UTC/GMT the last day of the month.

Peter,
This doesn't have to be grade school or any school that would put you in a bad situation. It doesn't even have to be a school. It just needs to be related to school, such as school books, notepads, training schools, chalk boards (dating myself), desks, etc.

Does that help to clarify the topic?

You know things are pretty bad in the USA also. Many years ago, I almost got arrested for taking photos of a carousel in a shopping center. I was taking photos for my wife who was born and raised in Buffalo NY, near the Herschell Carrousel Factory.

It's really unfortunate that the small majority of weirdo's ruin it for everyone else.

I've been really busy this month and doubt I will have time to submit something myself, but here are a few suggestions. And remember ... it isn't too late to post something.

If you have a sheet of paper (blank or lined), you can write out a math problem - include pertinent objects such as a ruler, pencil, or eraser. Or choose some words and create a list of spelling words, or create a homework assignment such as using the words in their own sentences. Do you have some glue and construction paper? Create an art project to photograph. Do you have a history book? Open it up and include a sheet of paper with a homework assignment written across the top. Do you have a protractor? A Texas Instruments calculator? There are ways to replicate school pics using things you have at home. :)

Entry #2

This is one of the four one roomed schoolhouses operating in Arizona. It has a superintendent, principal, and teacher to guide the 12 students that attend. All are the same person. :rolleyes: There are students in each grade from K-9 with the exception of 5 & 6.

This is Apache Elementary School (K-8). A one room schoolhouse that was established in 1910 and is still being used today. This building was built circa 1969.
