    It's an honor and a challenge in itself to follow up on Milan / pictogramax' excellent Salon Challenge.

    The theme of this one will be... Adventure. Interpret it however you like; literal, ironic, personal, through the eyes of somebody or something else, anything goes. Make it a combination of words and image, or let the image speak for itself. Surprise and / or delight me!

    The Challenge will run until sunday October 18th 23:59 Central European Time, or as soon after that as i can find the time to end it.

    I can't wait to see your entries!

    Rules are simple................

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hardtime about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    4. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the PL Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that openingmessage must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    5. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.

    6. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun!

    Just to note, I took this at Disneyworld at the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular with my old X10. No actual Nazis were harmed during this show.

  5. Not certain any of my photographs fit the more traditional definitions of adventure....but this challenge got me thinking...

    When you are 87 years old, merely going down to the end of the block can be an adventure -

  7. Great topic, Bart! My first instinct was to reach for one of my punchier travel shots, but then contemplated a little about a bit of a different approach. Still ended with a travel shot, though... :)

    most of my favorite adventures just involve walking in the woods with my wife and our dogs (clearly I'm not that adventurous)......

    Not too far from Philly
    you should be able to figure it out...
    My grandest adventures have come on the seat of a bicycle, but photographs never depict just how adventurous some of those trips have been. As an example, here's a shot (NOT my submission) of me from a tour I did in rainy, foggy, Wales in the summer of 2001 that probably comes as close as any, but is really just a photo of a guy and his bike...

    So here's my submission, which is something I'd never do, but which depicts a sense of adventure to me...

    Not the best photo (quick cameraphone group selfie), but adventure non-the-less:

    Epic Adventure. Found this newspaper wrapped in plastic in my mother's attic. Not my submission.

    Discovered this little project in a backstreet of Stalis, Crete while on holiday. A real adventure in construction.
    The guy’s ambition is for a small community theatre using materials on site & found in the locality – It follows the principles of Superadobe as promoted by CalEarth

    I’ve read of this construction method in the past few years but this is the first real live example I’ve seen close up. – The construction of the freestanding walls was a lot more robust than I expected. Very solid & firm. Nice to look at and touch. Very natural. The guy reckons he has another two years ahead of him before its completed and he has to take time off to work in Europe to raise money to survive and fund the project. I admire the guy’s ambition and commitment.

    I've deleted my prior - more traditional - entry to replace it by this one. It must quite an adventure to go in the water with mom the first time.


    the following is NOT my entry but was also adventurous. I am in the photo so it does not qualify. Obviously I am the one who shows typical male behavior (frankly, since I like diving and water, jumping in the water is always fun):
