The Rules (see rule change in red below)

1. Have Fun!

8. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges next competition

9. Have Fun!

Great theme with lots of possibilities, Dan.

Not sure if I'll be able to get something this month though

Nice theme, I agree... but the red line about the freshness of the pics to be entered makes it way tougher, IMO!

It's such a broad theme, you could probably find three opportunities in a single day; jewelry, tattooes, architectural features, furnishings, art, paint, etc. I haven't posted anything yet because I'm going to use film (Pentax Espio). OTOH, I haven't shot film for 20 years, so I'll need digital backup.

I agree with Dan... Unless you are currently incarcerated, living in a drab 5 X 10 cell with bare walls and no windows, there are opportunities available, so no excuses

You could photograph the Playboy centerfolds hanging on your wall.

All kidding aside, I don't mind you added the rule about the photo's being current, Dan.
I'm a firm believer in the principle that the host sets the rules.

Thanks Bart. It's surprising to me that current photos are not part of the P&S "competition". Competing doesn't interest me much, I like getting out with a humble camera and trying to make a photograph that's worthwhile posting.

Well, that can make participating more difficult.
There are certainly months I simply wouldn't have the time.
I'll do my best to find an opportunity this month.

Yes, a great illustration of decor. I'm relieved to see an entry. :-)
