Brian, did you see this in the first post?

But: All shots for each week should be taken at the same focal length. So you can use different lenses in the same week as long as they have the same focal length.
So you will have to make a choice for week A

Oops! Edited now

But I do like your stereoscopic challenge, looking forward to the results. I have a stereo viewer that will help seeing stereo images on my screen. I just need to magnify or reduce them to approx. the correct size.

Here is one of my very first attempts, although its actual size is 2000px X 959px to fit the OWL viewer.

Rules
1. Only one pic per member in each daily thread.
2. A or E mount cameras only. Any lens goes.
3. Comment on other photographs in the Talk Thread as much as possible
4. Only cropping in one direction, or minor cropping for straightening
...


Looks like a lot of fun, the rules (mostly edited out for shortness in reply) also allow plenty of freedom to 'set your own rules' too. If I was allow to play (sad face) I would personally bolt-on my own set of limitations/freedoms before starting. And I like that that can be optional and per photographer. I've popped in here and read some of the challenge rules a few times over the years with interest.

I could technically sneakily cheat and not-tape my 24-70mm (RX100 IV) to the camera-on default of '24mm' but just not zoom any. But it is an 8,8-25,7mm really. Or I could use one of my Pan 14/20/25 in week A and Fuji 35/2 in week B and still play along in spirit.

Count me out - I'll just watch while I try and resolve my own future project.

Having missed April Foolishness altogether and also mostly absent from Dyxum recently, I feel I must join in!

I think Pic A Day is a fair challenge. I might not get around to posting each day, but I'll certainly make utmost efforts to make the one photo per day.

Wouldn't it be great to post a "back to work" photo towards the end of the month...

I have no idea if I can find the courage or the inspiration to make this work, but I will give it a go. Equipment to be determined at the last moment, at this time I have no well defined ideas.
