The “April Challenge” Has Arrived

It's time again for another “Photo Challenge” — a whole month of photographing a single topic. The April Challenge is all about “entropy”… degradation, devolution, and things falling apart. Below are some examples of photos that would fall into this category, and Trevor (the guy in charge of the challenge series) has already posted his first photo for the month.

These challenges are great sources of inspiration and a clever way to unlock some hidden creativity — I would encourage you to participate if at all possible. I've completed the October Challenge (sort of), the December Challenge, and the February Challenge. I'm really glad I did, because I learned a lot by participating and I added several skills to my arsenal.

With that being said, I regret having to say that I won't be participating in the April Challenge. I've got too many other things happening this month and I don't want to feel stressed over taking photos and posting them. That's not to say I won't take some “entropy” photos this month with the challenge in mind, but I'm not signing up for the 1-a-day part of it.

But don't let that stop YOU from participating! Just make sure you tag your photos with “aprilchallenge”, “aprilchallenge2008”, and “photochallenge” so Trevor can find your photos for the end-of-month recap.
