Default October Photo "Challenge."

Seems I "won" September. As a "prize" I gotta come up with theme for October. Since it hurts my brain to think, I'm going with the obvious.


This is a forum wide challenge. This is just a casual challenge for fun (no official prizes, but it's fun to share our photography skills). We'll have a monthly photography challenge based around a theme. At the end of the month I'll choose someone who submitted a pic in October to choose the theme for November .

Submit your photos in this thread and feel free to share links to any other photos you might have on flickr, photobucket, etc. that we might want to look at.

If you'd like, please also list: Location of photo Date of photo Type of Camera Any special lenses, lights, etc.

The October Theme is:

SET

Fooled you didn't I? Figured it best to wait till after Halloween to do that.

SET However you want to interpret it. It is the English word with the most definitions, 464 in the Oxford English Dictionary. Choose any definition(s). Any part of speech. Be literal or symbolic or even surreal. You can submit a photo of nearly anything you wish. Definitions are here
http://onelook.com/?w=set&ls=a
be sure and check word origin in bottom right and phrases containing set at bottom for inspiration.

Ready ...SET...GO!!!

YOU MAY SUBMIT up to FIVE Photos. Taken at any time. Have fun!!!

For those feeling let down because they wanted to show off Halloween pics, maybe you'll "win" and can do it for November. Or mebbee just start a Halloween thread.

Ooooooo. This looks intriguing. Now I have to go look this up in my dictionary. 464 definitions gives me something to shoot for.

Obviously, I hadn't seen this thread when I commented in the September one. Oops. Sorry about that.
This is an interesting one. Hopefully October won't get away from me and I will submit something this month!

What kinda rude thing did you say about me over there, Angela?.......Oh, Ok.
Yeah, the Lace Maniac, sent me a PM with the "good news." Don't worry about it, I can use all the help I can get. In fact, I've never started a thread B4, took me a while to find the button. Almost had to start a thread asking how to start a thread.

OK, crafty devils, I have a warped mind, left it out in the rain too long, that will probably influence my judging. It occurs to me that "set" could be the pronunciation of another word in certain dialects. But do not let that influence your choice of entry, lots of things occur to me. A few of them are perfectly normal.

Ok lets see did Lace Maniac understand this month challenge . If this photo does not qualified I will just blame it on English being my second language.
Anyways I was sitting in my daughter's room and I came across of Harry Potter books and I said to myself...SET. So I took a photo of the books and I add little heart detail just because i always wanted to do it.
So here it is book set with heart...

Thats a set all right.
Here's a thought, inspired by Doily's blingualism, Of which I am envious; I said SET was the English word with most definitions. But no where in the rule book does it say you have to use the English word. For all I know set may be a word in other languages.

You might also submit a photo that is some how connected to set, my warped mind sees a connection in this photo. Brownie points, and little else, to any one else who sees it, and can defend the connection.

Okay - what I think of when I hear the word "set". Dishes, tennis, ancient Egyptian god, and a few other things.....so here goes:

A chess set:
