    ... just to be clear: you as photographer need to be stood outside your house and within 50 yards of your front door (or front gate as applicable) but NOT on your property.

    What you photograph can be anywhere between where you are stood and infinity :)

    NB. it is in no way the intention of this challenge to encourage clandestine voyeurism LOL

    .. or floating, or seated, or kneeling, or crouched ... or lying down (wouldn't want to miss the fighting mice)

    IOW - 'positioned'

    sorry but another incomprehensible theme why do you want two photos? and how are you going to know whether it is or isnt within 50 yards or 45.72m? Shall I take photos with a tape measure showing?

    Anyway I am out, I certainly would not take any pictures in the vicinity of my house that identifies my property or my neighbours.

    Actually sounds quite fun to me... may give it a go at the weekend, lots of potential without compromising my, or anyone else's privacy. My house tends to get photographed a lot anyway, so I'm not going to do that, but within 45.72m there are quite a lot of things worthy of photographing...

    Sounds like a great them to me - in fact one of my themes a while ago was Close to Home. Just one thing, if one is away travelling and really not at home before 5 March then hopefully in the spirit of this great thread we may be allowed to photograph the vicinity of our ‘home’ for the night wherever that happens to be?! Anyway Thanks for posting a new Theme. I was just getting my head around the Diptych but didn’t quite get there.
