There is a guy on this photography website that regularly posts "assignments". It is a sort of loose class type thing. He gives out assignments and anyone that wants to play goes and takes pictures based on the criteria he laid out. The "students" then upload their entries and the "teacher" provides feedback. This week the assignment was "the strike of a match". Taking a picture of a match is not something I ever would have thought to do, but I am really really like the what I was able to come up with.
Oh yeah the teacher liked it too.
