OK... so I'm in the process of heading back up north to Canada, from Florida, over the next few days and plan on spending them on the road in a leisurely fashion. While photography is certainly not the purpose of the trip I always have a camera available in the event something should happen to catch my eye. Lets make that the next salon... a photo of something taken from a roadway or on a roadway itself. What's a roadway you ask .... how about anything used to transport people from one spot to another including a paved surface, steel rails, etc. and even a canal path. If you've read this far down already, I'll include a secret... bonus points for including the color "red" somewhere in the photo. Shhhh, don't tell anyone else....

Here's what you do:

1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

2. Upload your entry to your FTU user gallery (all entries must be present in an FTU gallery, which you automatically get if you are registered on the FTU forum), so if you aren't registered, you will need to if you would like to join the fun!)

3. Use the gallery IMG code or the 'Post New Thread' Advanced Mode 'My Pics' facility to display your picture in a response to this message. If you are having trouble with this, post a message for some help here and we'll gladly assist. It becomes easy after a while!

4. Only two entries per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that's OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you intend doing.

5. The decision of the curator at the end of the two weeks is final - don't give him or her a hard time about it; this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

6. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator and, as soon as possible, post a message starting a new thread in the FTU Salon board, with details of the new theme. That opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

7. The curator can't enter his or her own salon!

8. You can post two pictures.

Okay - get snapping.

Enjoy yourself and don't take it too seriously, its supposed to be fun.

Closing date and time: 24:00 on Sunday, 01 May 2017
