How about,

'Someone I admire', and a little bit saying who and why
'Symmetry or patterns'

"My refrigerater door" - sometimes you can learn a lot about people by looking at their fridge door.

I like that as well. That way we could all show off our admired people.

What about before and after.

Any type of project about to be tackled.
Like house decorating, garden, or building work.

A photo before, and a link to the resultant work. Could take a while though.

I like the idea of using colours, emotional states and adjectives as themes as they give a chance for varied interpretations. First choices:

yellow
happiness
messy

Could we do a "Sculptures II" sometime? I was out of town for the week that my suggestion was used! I would love to share a photo for that subject - thanks in advance to the judges...

What I've been doing is going down the list of posts here and selecting subjects from members in turn. This seems the fairest way to handle things. We just got to the bottom of the posts and now are now starting from the the top again.

It would be a bit difficult to take into account people not being around when their suggestion comes up but I'm sure we can have a 'Sculptures II' at some time. Not quite the same I know but in the meantime, you could always put a 'sculpture' photo in 'Photo-a-Day' and say this is the one you would have posted. We still all get to see your photo that way.

Generally we all prefer to show nice photographs, so how about something completely different. A theme of Pollution or Environment could be interesting!

Of course I don't expect an immediate return of an earlier theme, fair is fair and each idea should get a turn, I just had hoped there could be a sequel to any and all themes. Thanks!

Shadows

Abstract
A specific colour or contrast
A specific shape
Your computer and it's situation
Trees
Where you shop

I'd better stop.....

While I don't participate in the photo forum, I do look at it every single day.

How about having time for a theme? There are so many possiblities...clocks in houses, clocks outside, etc., etc.

Just a suggestion.

Time was actually already a theme during one week last August. That was one of my favorite weeks! Be sure to go back and check it out, Agnes - there are some beautiful clocks on there!

Maybe photos of ...
-(public?) transportation
-food/kitchen shelves/pantries
-elevators
-recycling (aka new and brilliant uses for ordinary objects)
-locks/keys of any sort
-waves (ocean, sound, special-effects, things-that-look-like-waves)

That's my store of ideas for now.
Hopefully I'll start participating in the photo-a-day now that I have a real camera

I absolutely love looking at all the photos, and since my last suggestion was already used in the summer (which I somehow missed! Egads I am getting old!), I have been thinking of another theme that may interest everyone....how about photos of coffee/tea mugs filled with your favourite drink? Or it could even be just coffee/tea mugs/cups only?

How about a "What is it?" theme? And I second an earlier suggestion for "Hunks in Uniforms" I've got those!
