The theme for our October 2020 photo quest is “Spooky“. Just like in September, there will be no example photo and no hints on how to potentially interpret the theme – we do not want to prime or influence anyone’s creative mind and vision but… come on, “spooky?” How hard can it be to come up with a photo for that theme, in October?! 😅 We’re expecting lots of submissions, people!
The theme for our September 2020 photo quest is “Glass“. Unlike previous quests, we’re skipping the example photo and any hints on how to potentially interpret the theme – we do not want to prime or influence anyone’s creative mind and vision.

For our May 2020 photo quest, we’re looking for photos where you can “see the light” as it manifests itself as more than just a source of illumination for your photographic subjects. We want the light to be the subject.
All good parties begin and end in the kitchen. Why shouldn’t photography happen there too? We’re sure that you’ll have no problem submitting a photo for our April 2020 Photo Quest, with the theme: “In The Kitchen”.
Spring in Southern California, with its blooms of wildflowers, bushes and shrubs alike, with morning dew on fresh growth and if we’re lucky a bit of rain as well, is a great time to make macro & close-up photos. And if the weather is really too bad to be outside, you can explore the details of everyday objects inside your house – or whatever you want to inspect up close with the camera for our March 2020 photo quest:
