Monthly Photo Challenge - March - WHAT IS IT?

Our photos are usually portraits, landscapes, objects arranged in an interesting way, or other real things that we identify with as soon as we see the photo. This month, however, we want to tease the viewer and make them take a second look at the photo, maybe turn their head sideways and then STILL wonder “What IS IT??”. You can approach this week’s challenge from various angles. You can either shoot an abstract photo or a macro photo, take a photo from an unusual angle or take a photo of an unusual phenomenon or object. You can even crawl underneath a table and take an artistic photo of the chewing gum stuck there! So show us the world through your weird and creative eyes. We need to make this month challenge that will puzzle the viewer and make everyone ask: “WHAT IS THIS!? THERE IS NO ACTUAL MEETING NIGHT PLANNED FOR THIS CHALLENGE. This is an online only event......Please take the challenge. You can add your image on this site. TAKE AN IMAGE IN THE MONTH OF MARCH and post it here. THIS EXERCISE IS TO GET US ALL OUT TO TAKE SOME NEW PHOTOS DURING THIS MONTH and have some fun and challenge us with our photography. Let's see what you can dream up. Please leave feedback on photos and vote on the best. NOTE: Please be aware...We will be showing these images at a future meeting.
