    September Photo Challenge: For which there are no words

    This month you are challenged to post an original photograph that simply could not be described in words.
    As an example, I present this

    which I captured on the campus of The University of Central Florida {very near where I live}.

    I cannot say if this is the work of a clever vandal or simply Kismet. The other similar signs around campus say:

    Interesting topic, I must say this is a difficult conceptual one, though might prove interesting.. perhaps we might expand it slightly, to say it's ok if words are included with pictures

    Perhaps given beauty itself can be considered that 'for which there are no words' - in which case, post your most beautified pics people!

    This is an interesting one I shot recently, which I liked (and photoshopped to bring out the colours).



    And another which is slightly verging on political, but very pertinent none the less (please, let's not comment on the content, and just appreciate that sometimes vandalism carries a message)

    This is not really a "contest". It is intended to be a showcase but we call it a challenge.
    The idea is to challenge yourself to improve your photography skills. And interact with others who share the same interest.

    Welcome.
    I like your clever username !!

    Yes, "challenge" is a better way to put it. Like your avatar. I'm a big fan of Hockney photomontages. That's what your avatar reminds me of.

    @Dan: My Avatar was created (and devised) by my son. Thanks for the compliment.

    @keddy1: It is intended to be a 'personal' challenge. The idea is that, faced with this challenge, you will go out and create/discover/devise/reveal an appropriate image. That being said, many of us do rely on past work. However, it should always be YOUR OWN WORK.
    And there is an 'understanding' that post effects are not prohibited but strongly discouraged.

    @Armchaircritic: Please correct me where appropriate.
