    Hiking trails, roads, train tracks, sidewalks – anything people use to move from one place to another. Difficulty: path has to be empty (i.e. no trains on the tracks, no cars on the road, no people on the sidewalk).

    Theme suggestion courtsey of Farktographer–thanks!

    Too bad this contest comes up two days before we leave for the backcountry of southern Utah.

    and yet another silly question: What about the shadow of a person, like, say, the photographer? (I have a shot I’m considering using, taken with the sun at my back…..)

    Depending on how much shadow, it might be pushing it? I’ll defer to Farktographer though.

    I think a shadow would be fine – just try to keep the subject the open pathway, not your shadow.

    Query: Does “No cars on the road” mean “no cars visible” or “no cars being driven”? Can it be a street with parked cars but no driven ones? (This also applies to parked motorcycles/scooters/bikes.)

    Try to keep it as abandoned as possible. If you have a few cars on the side, that’s fine with me, but I think it doesn’t fit the theme as well so the voters might not go for it.

    Thanx. It’s not like I haven’t got plenty of choices, but there were a bunch of people-less streets in Italy, but had parked cars. Slightly more photogenic than my Sunday in Peoria shots from a few years ago… you wanna talk desolately empty? I stood in the very middle of Main Street, took a few pictures of the empty street and feared in no way for my health and well-being.

    I’ll keep your response in mind, though. Thanx again!

    So can I use an empty “ski” lift? (I say “ski” because it’s the same type of suspended seating that moves, but it’s at the beach which is not really good for skiing 😛 )

    U-Man Cave Creek is about an hour’s drive from where I live, but caradoc is much closer, IIRC. I won’t be going–I work the weekends, unfortunately–and the night shift, at that. (Well…if we don’t do a fab shutdown in December, maybe I’ll take a vacay day).

    //I considered this, but given Farktographer post, am deciding against it. But I still like. Today’s excursion into photography. If anyone spots a mountain lion in the shot–can you let me know?
