PlaceBook Scotland: Capture your place in words, pictures, video and music.
I was sent a link to the The Great Camera Challenge 2013 being run by the Scottish Nature Photography Awards at the moment.
The premise is 12 professional photographers (1 a month) are being challenged to go out with a basic compact camera and show what they can do with it.
The first few posts have been really interesting and reminds me it really is not all about the gadgets.
Take a look and see what you think. Then challenge yourself to leave your comfort zone too!
Let us know how it goes.
As always, if you have any comments about the site, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a post on the Placebook Scotland page.

We want to know what makes your place distinct and for you to capture this using music, song, words or a photograph.This is your opportunity to create a record of the identity of your place - both good and bad, and even the ugly! Whether you live in Glasgow or Gigha, we want you to capture the essence of your place and tell us about it. Everyone can post their photos, prose, poetry and even music on the website. More info
Placebook Scotland was set up so we could all celebrate those places that mean something to us - be they where we live, go to work or choose to visit.
This was going so well we decided to pull out an eclectic selection of the contributions out to create a book which gives a feel for the site and how Scotland is experienced and appreciated by the people who live and visit here.
The importance of everyday places is illustrated, alongside those more widely recognised as special.
You can get a copy of the book from Scottish Natural Heritage for the very reasonable price of £3.99.
