    I'd really like to encourage people to play in the weekly members challenge.
    The weekly themes have given me a reason to take so many photos that I wouldn't have taken otherwise. That has often meant I have to think about what I'm doing. Such a challenge is that thinking business.
    And taking photos I wouldn't have otherwise has helped me learn about photography generally.

    The stuffed toy ideas for March is probably the hardest here.
    To show you can do something different (doesn't have to be good) this is what I did with this theme back in 2013. (of cause I could PP it better now)

    I like the selection of topics! Will be some interesting photos put up no doubt...

    But for the moonlight, might be a good idea to try and take that on a moonlit night when one arrives.. otherwise you risk not getting one at all if that week happens to be a miserable cloudy week... I'm guessing that AP staff have checked the moon phases to make sure moonlight has been placed on a week when it is full moon... would be a bummer if it happened to be the week of the new moon
    Of course, you could always take a photo of your second job...

    --- just did a search and found that full moon is 7th august...
