Picture This! ended almost 6 years ago

"Picture This!" is a weekly 24-hour challenge, meaning that it closes in 24 hrs

“I, I love the colorful clothes she wears … And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair.”

-Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys (1966)

Do you think you can picture this? :)

Usually, you put captions on your photos. Now let’s try the opposite – we give you the caption, and you provide us the photo!

Every week, we’ll be posting a quote, a song lyric, a line from a storybook, or just a random descriptive sentence on the blog. Then it’s your job to browse through your albums to find that ONE perfect picture – yes, just ONE – so choose carefully!

Similar to the round-the-clock rumbles, “Picture This!” is a weekly 24-hour challenge, meaning that it closes in 24 hrs – and the winner with the best photo takes home 10 shiny-pink piggies.

Guidelines

  • Upload ONLY ONE PHOTO, please. Size is at least 768px in width or height, as always.
  • Please make sure that your photo is relevant to the theme.
  • Refer to the FAQ for rumble-related questions!

TIME STARTED 11:00AM Vienna Time

    I heart this idea!
    in comparison with the monthly mission and the 24h rumble, this new challenge is much more specific in terms of theme and thus a little harder for us to choose a pic that really matches everything described the sentence. it's more interesting! :)

    There seems to be a problem with the gallery. When I enter the site i see anglemort's picture as the first, when I go through the gallery picture #5 is the same as #1, but when I go back to #1 it's suddenly my pic.

    This is a great way for those of us who shoot incessantly to show our pics ! Any chance that we can submit/suggest the lyric/poem for other lomographers to "picture"?

    I love this idea; but there is no way to delete my unwanted submission. Any way to fix that?

    I'm a bit confused. Are we supposed to submit a picture which fits the title or could we submit one which fits the lyrics? I see a lot of “I love the colourful clothes she wears and the way the sunlight plays upon her hair”-girls. Can we assume that the people choosing the winners will know the lyrics?

    Hey guys, having problems using the uploader, tried in numerous browsers on my computer but it won't work. Nothing happens when I click 'upload images'. I can't upload using the Lab any more either. A tech friend of mine reckons that it could be because I've upgraded my Flash player to version 10. The problem is documented here: http://ajaxian.com/archives/flash-10-and-the-bad-news-for-javascript-interaction It maybe worth passing this on to your tech guys. Not sure if this is the reason or not for my problems but it sounds feasible as the Flash player is the only constant between browsers.
