Here's an interesting theme idea, "Outer Space", and if anyone can post images like these at http://www.texasjim.com/NASApix/NASA%20pix.htm they deserve a special FT badge

My guess is, if they COULD post photos like that, they probably don't have the time to play on FT!

I mentioned some of these in the other thread, but repeat them here:

Animals other than pets
Hats/headgear
Windows (not the view through them, the windows themselves)
Automobiles
Education
Backs
Aeroplanes
Bottles
Flags

Ooh, I like backs and bottles liz (or even backs OF bottles)! Then there's

Exercise equipment
Toes
Egos (Imagine the photos one could come up with for this!)
The year 2000
Feelings
Covers, lids, anything that goes over something else.

Ahh, I have to stop!

Flags, Badges and Coats of Arms - as a single theme of course, not three separate themes.

I'd also suggested some possible themes in the other, ie 'Themes Addition', thread. These were:-
Special occasions
Holidays & travel
uniforms
History
Drinks
Clouds
ornaments
plants & flowers
brightly coloured objects
anything old (ie, over 100 years old)
birds and butterflies
bridges
aircraft - including views from planes
signs - road, warning, temporary, etc
furniture
cars, trucks and buses
people - but not family members
landscapes and seascapes
buildings
a view from your home window
phone booths and post boxes

It might be an idea to encourage suggestions which have already been suggested. That way the popularity of a subject might be seen?

I know we are only allowed 1 photo a day.

A catergory I thought about was opposites.Something big, something small.

Old, modern.Bright,dull.Good,bad.Happy sad.

Maybe post a photo of one and a link to the other.

Is that a possibility?

Interesting thought DD, but perhaps instead of linking we could try to get opposites in a single photo. That would be quite challenging.

To clarify, in the Themes thread, we can only have one photo a week (as well as a daily photo in the photo-a-day thread).

Some more possible themes:

Illustrate a book (or movie) title
Collections (mugs, coins, stamps, hats, whatever)
Feet
Music or musical instruments

Excellent idea. Though unless a good camera is used all that might come out are a few coloured dots.

How about 'photos taken at unusual angles'? Alternatively try to find some and post them in photo-a-day.
There are some good examples of these here

I know we all hate having to do it, but what about a theme on 'Work'.
RMG is now running away ducking for cover.

Some of the themes used on other photo sites I've belonged to - color themes, doors, windows, flagabuse (the use of flags in everyday items), echolalia (repeated patterns), sculpture, art, found items, glass, vehicles, reflections, shoes, eyes.... oh dear, I can't stop!

Sorry if I've repeated any suggestions

We already did bridges

It was fun, as there are so many bridges in this town!
