    Lightmancer (aka Bill) has set us an interesting challenge complete with some ideas to get you shooting (or searching your back catalogue).

    I'd like the next theme to be "KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON"

    Anyone in the UK will recognise this phrase immediately - it was a wartime poster that has been recently revitalised. You can see it today on posters, coasters, T-shirts, mugs, etc. It has a fresh resonance given what's going on in the World and should strike a universal chord.

    I'd like to see images of people keeping calm and carrying on. Please show stiff upper lips and sangfroid, show courage in the face of adversity, show the normal going on in spite of the abnormal. It can be something as prosaic as a child being philosophical about a burst balloon or something as edgy as shopping in a market in a war zone. Even just the journey to work can tax your patience!

    This statue, found in a small Italian city Benevento, definitely kept calm and carried on.

    Got a chance to try out the E-PL3 w/ 14-42mm II today. This was taken in the throes of a rousing game of hide and seek.
