    Photograph a scene where something should obviously be there, but it just isn’t.

    Theme suggestion kudos to bucky_bacon–thanks!

    Huh? Anybody have an example or three?

    kestrana‘s “Elf Storage” from the Christmas theme might make an excellent example.

    I’m guessing anything from a car on a jackstand (missing a tire) to a hamburger bun all dressed out with condiments, but minus the patty. More subtle would be something like a formal place setting, minus the dinner fork – but since the rules say obvious, subtlety might best be avoided. I’m clearly not the one to answer such things, but those are a few examples of the sort of things I was thinking might fit anyway.

    Pssst….I think that was done on purpose. 😉

    Yep – what olavf and Megain said. Well, now I’m regretting the use of “obvious” because I certainly don’t mind a little subtlety – it’s up to the voters to decide how clever it actually is.

    The theme is really pretty wide open. Just take a picture of something that isn’t there. Doesn’t sound too hard, right? 🙂

    In case you don’t know what olafv was talking about:

    Classic Greetings - Elf Storage

    I wasn’t sure I’d have anything for this one, but I thought it sounded fun. I mentioned it to Hubby and he suggested something like a chess board with the kings missing. I then thought of later a carton of eggs with one or two missing or something like that. Another thought that just hit me is if anyone has Jenga, could do something with those I think. Not sure if it’s allowed or anything, but a spot on a store shelf where they’re out of something perhaps.

    Obvious I can do. Not so obvious, I’m not so good at, but can use practice. We’ll see how it works out anyway.

    Farktography is cool. I saw this theme and was unimpressed and uninspired. Then I started thinking about it and taking a few pics. It is starting to grow on me. I don’t think it will be epic, but I bet there are a few “oh yeah – why didn’t I think of that?” entries.

    Opinions please – How obvious/important does the missing thing have to be? I have a self portrait in an odd setting and 1 out of 3 lights behind me is burned out. Would that be in the spirit of the theme? Or is the missing thing supposed to be more important?

    I’d say that if it’s apparent that the bulb is burned out it’s cool.
