Weekend In The Life Of... You.

    Okay, this thread seems to show that there is a significant number of users that have some sort of image capturing device.

    So here's the deal... Was thinking it would be a interesting if everyone went out of their way to take pictures this weekend (from 12:00 am Saturday morning to 11:59 pm Sunday night). Times would be in your local time.

    Can be anything you want, but get creative... if you are planning on going skydiving or something, do it this weekend. :) I will setup a place where people can upload their pictures, and will see about putting together a gallery of the best ones next week.

    I'm up for that. I will be at the Harley Davidson Rally in Milwaukee showing my V-Rod. Should be able to get some quite interesting pictures of strange riders and bikes.

    A weekend in the life of Rob? I don't usually shower or wear clothes on Saturday & Sunday. I guess I can make an exception for this!

    Crap....I'll be visiting my mother. How do pics of old folks at a mobile home park sound? I'm going to have to use my imagination for this one.

    since a lot of people work for themselves maybe it should be 2 days instead of weekend

    I try to avoid leaving my house on the weekend, its like a big traffic jam where I live between Key Largo and Miami

    That was a one-off, trust me :) Didn't have access to an editor :eek:

    I'll cut them down neatly this time but the odds are I won't be doing anything interesting whatsoever.

    Crap, you said this weekend.. Duh.. Harley Rally is not till the next weekend. Not a problem. I'll likely be on the boat. I am sure I can muster up enough energy to lift the power shot in between power shots..
