That sounds like a fun job!

Just take photos and write about them. I've had a lot of trucks in the past when I did a classic truck magazine. But no big diesel in my driveway.

Wow, Bob. Nice photo. Do you build 'em, drive 'em or take pictures of 'em?
Comment by Bob Carpenter on May 30, 2009 at 4:14pm
Just thought I'd throw out a photo...this is what I do for a living.

Excellent suggestions, Nick. And thanks for your offer to help. (I may need to take you up on that eventually). I've pretty much got it ready to roll, but have had so much on MY own "9 to 6 list", that It's been difficult to give this contest the attention it deserves. Stay tuned though. The guidelines will be posted (and emailed to you) TODAY! I think you're all going to like it... at least I hope you will!

Hi Bruce,
sorry i've been silent recently, got lots of my 9 to 6 tasks to do!
1. Access to the contest - i agree with you that there should be no limits for other AoM members to enter! However you might think of some limits - how many pics submitted per person.
2. I think you shoud make categories within the contest - Portraits, Kids, Still Life, Fashion, Art\Conceptual etc. The idea here is that for example portraits and still life pics should be judged separately. One should not compare people and nature photography against each other, it's just wrong:) If you make categories you can also set the rule that one person can submit only one pic per category. Otherwise there will be just too many pics, don't you think?
3. Technically i would have made a separate profile for the contest (like the person's profile) with slideshows. Is there a voting widget on AoM by the way? How do we count votes?

Let me know if you need any help with the contest!
Nick

Looking forward to seeing tons of pictures from Germany Cooper and CONGRATS on your first camera ... WAY COOL of your Grandmother !!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone. Well, I just received my first camera as a gift from my grandma, a brand new Canon 500d.
So far I really like photography but I don't have any pictures I'm proud enough of to post up yet. In two weeks I am going to Germany for a month and plan on taking a lot of pictures. I make sure to put the best in here when I get back.

I've got some wild flowers in the front of the woods across the street from me that were begging for a photo op ...

The Nature of Life and Conception

This post assumes a Judeo-Christian worldview. If you want to challenge that, start another thread. Don't hijack this one, thank you.My father said something a while back that I am not sure I agree with. He said that if man succeeds in creating life artificially, that life would be an abomination and not a true human. I did not ask because it was to a group of people and not a personal conversation, but I assume he meant it would be a golem of sorts, a "hollow shell." He didn't mean artificial…See More

"Live and learn.  Calling would've been less clumsy and offered better response options. Still, chances are she's not interested.  Better to know than to waste more time on her. JB"
