C+ or is that C++?

The first C plus (as in starts with C) comes in the form of a photo that is a good example of the bad, bad joke heather some of you have come to know and loathe.

Here's an additional starts with C image from the other day.

It is four of my SLRs (two film and two digital) arranged in an alert circle just in case they need to shoot something.


It's a flash mob because of the flash attachment at the center of the circle.

The C plus is for cards.

Somehow or another (I'm thinking a tag sale), I came to have a few of sets of what I can only surmise were supposed to be shade (like paint sample) cards. Essentially they are coloured card stock pieces about the size of a standard business card with a single punch and connected with a binder ring.

When buying into this photo a day challenge idea, I decided on some rules of engagement that would give me multiple photo prompts each day. To keep track of the prompts during the course of my day, I went low tech and put these babies into service for more than just jotting down the odd note/phone number.

On each card, based on the randomized results for my list and the prompts for the other photo challenge web pages I've identified, I write the photo prompts for the day.

I usually write (front and back) a few days worth of prompts and put them on the binder ring.

If a prompt looks promising or I have a specific image/idea in mind, I may also jot down a note.

I attach the lot to my key chain so I have an immediate and constant reminder of the prompts as I go through the day. I circle the prompt when I've taken a shot I'm happy with.

It also comes in handy when I'm trying to explain what the hell I'm doing with the camera.

Love the cameras, all lined up and ready to shoot. And thanks for explaining how you keep all those prompts organized and handy. I've been wondering. I can barely remember the ONE prompt I shoot each day!

I can't resist a bad joke and a bad visual joke is even better.

A little biz card sized note on a key ring is way more effective than any electronic reminder for me at least.
