    Post Inspiration to the inspirred...

    hay all. here the other day when i was doing my disswash i got to look at the soap bubbles in the water, seaing how it moved like a landmass, and I got the idea...

    Why not take an random photo, and use that fore inspiration to make a map. so that one photo of some random everyday stuff shut give the inspiration to make a map. that be a city or landmass map or wathever you seen in the photo...

    That's a pretty cool idea.

    Good challenge idea. Take anything real with lots of random in it and make a map from it. Closer to the original photo the better. Yeah great stuff.

    Post I see maps in everything...

    Unfortunately for me, I see maps in everything. This challenge idea would seem to follow the expected - I see a rust spot that looks like an island or continent.

    All I need to do is look at a water filled ditch for example, and I see a river through swamp terrain (I even see the dinosaurs that aren't there!) and that floating leaf is a boat or I look at a tree imagine flattened instead of 3D and I see an island, or a stump and an ant colony and see an inhabited castle town - I see maps in everything...

    I think they make medication for that.
