Hi Everyone, since I haven't got a list of the themes that have been done and who suggested them I wondered if you'd like to throw in some more suggestions for the weekly themed photos? I don't want to duplicate recent themes.

I've pinched a couple from the old thread for the next couple of weeks but I'd love to hear if you have an idea we could use.

I seem to have formed an obsession, and there are so many interesting formations.

I'm not sure what all has been used since I haven't been around as long as some of the other fine posters.

But it seems we all, at one time or another post pictures of Doorways.

"Your own car">>>

I`m not sure if it`s been used before, but seems interesting just like "Your house" few months ago.

Surely you should be living up to your forum username, and be suggesting 'anything purple' as a theme
Could make a pretty good them actually!

I've just looked through the previous Theme Suggestions thread, and noticed various suggestions which may not yet have been used. Feel free to correct me if we've had any of these, or if I've missed any:-
windows, automobiles/vehicles, education, aeroplanes, bottles, flags, year 2000, covers & lids, light, street signs, badges, uniforms, history, drinks, birds, butterflies, furniture, landscapes, seascapes, phone booths, opposites, collections, feet, music, unusual angles, patterns, shoes, eyes, home projects, yellows, messiness, pollution, abstract/shapes, public transport, elevators, recycling, locks and keys, weather, bends, macro images, red, neon lights, beaches, fans, trophies & awards, telephones, brushes, candles, fish, bugs, broken items, breakfast.
These were suggested by various forum members' and I've just listed the themes; not who suggested them.

I think we did Street Signs not too awfully long ago. But it encompasses a pretty large category!

We've done signs twice since the themes started, but as Tredici says, it's a large category We've also done windows, bottles and flags at least once each and also unusual angles. (I remember which photos I posted for each of these )

Rivers & Waterways.
The sky at night.
Night scenes.
Something you have made.
Plants you have grown from seed or cuttings.
Garden or Yard features.

But I do have alot of PURPLE things I can take pictures of.
