Mini Challenge #129 is to submit up to three of your favorite photos that answer the question What's the Point?
The challenge will run until 9:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on October 13.

So... "What's the Point?" Well, it anything you want it to be as long as there's a point.
Time to get out of the box. Out of the center of the frame. Out of the ordinary.

Maybe you'll go for a literal interpretation like these:

UWP-D-1981023-L.jpg

Self-Portrait-044-L.jpg

Maybe you'll look for an unusual Point of View in your shooting angle like these:
PAD-February-3-L.jpg

MG9045-L.jpg

Buddha-003-L.jpg

Maybe your shots will try to Make a Point or tell a story, like these:
VCWesternDay2010-010-L.jpg

NC-Thanksgiving-Trip-2002084-L.jpg

Rolling-Stop-Sign-L.jpg

Maybe you'll get creative and answer the question, "What's the Point?" in a way no one expects.
Have I made my point? Point and shoot. Point and click. Point of order. Game Point. Point of No Return. Pointless? Well, it is the mini-challenge, isn't it :scratch

    ok, I think I have the idea Bill. Took me a bit to find ones I thought fit. I like the outside of the box challenge.


    1. The artist makes his point.

    Thanks, my wife thought it was disgusting - but she laughed. Hmmm, I suppose I could have titled this one "Point and Shoot". :)

    Okay everybody... we've come to the point of no reply. This Mini-Challenge is closed.

    I'll point out the winner, runners-up, and HMs before I go to bed tomorrow.

    Thanks for pointing your cameras in some really interesting directions. It's been fun.... I guess that's the point, isn't it.
