Thank you for an amazing response!

Wow - and I'll say it again, wow! The suggestions you all came up with for my photography challenge below, were incredible. Talk about food for thought! And what a difficult task I have had choosing one! I have spent this past week mulling over them, forming ideas, imagining the finished product and generally getting very excited. It's as if I have just started out on a photography course and you my 'tutors' have set me an assignment!

But... I did promise I would choose one and that I did, after much deliberation. I have decided to go with Elemenopie Designs suggestion: To portray what 'life' means to me. As she says, I can go so many ways with that. You'll have to check back to see what I come up with! So a big congrats to our winner: Elemenopie Designs!
But I have been so impressed and inspired by all of your suggestions that I want to give them all a go! Once I have completed Elemenopie's challenge, I plan to work my way through the rest of the list. Don't hold your breath, as this may take me quite a while but when I do complete any, I will either post it here, or list it in my store (or both) and give the story and 'credits' to whoever gave me the inspiration in the first place.

In the meantime, the pictures I have included here, are ones that were suggested and that I already have on hand. They are not listed in my shop yet so if you are interested in purchasing any, just contact me or leave a note in the comments. Enjoy!
