If I photograph a group of friends smiling and holding up their index and middle fingers, while sitting behind the cracked windshield of a blue, 1950's T-Bird that they've just washed, does that count for 9 or 10 of the photographs?!?   ::)

That might just work. ;D

I'll give you 9.  I don't think it would count for the cooking utinsel.

Actually, I was thinking the T-Bird would pass for "An interesting structure."  If not, then I'll just shoot it front of Stonehenge!  Oh, and I have to make sure the chrome bumper is polished.  Then, I'll throw a potted plant next to the car, while one guy holds a spatula and another brushes his teeth, and I think I've got it all covered!   ;D

Whether I enter or not this hunt sounds fun, thanks for the notice there justawriter.
Although I don't think Tamron can be so sure about their 24-70 VC being the 'only' fast standard zoom with image stabilization, I would certainly count the Panny 12-35 F/2.8 OIS as being in the same league

Wish that'd work, it's pretty creative, but according to the rules:

...and must contain 14 images as they relate to all 14 clues (images may be ordered in any way).

Thanks for posting this!  I think I'm going to do this with my 6 year old who loves photography and is one of the most creative thinkers I've ever met.

Yeah, I noticed that.  I'll just have to shoot it 14 times, each from a different POV!  THAT might make it a winner!   :P
