Gather a few of your favorite things. No less than five (5) and no more than eight (8). Arrange items and photograph. List all the items with a brief explanation. You have complete freedom here - if an item not available, find another way to represent it. Perhaps you draw a picture of the absent item or write it's name on a piece of paper. All items have to be in one photograph. Do not produce multiple photographs. Only one photograph with 5 - 8 items. Post the one photo and explanations on your blog.
