Hi All

    The next Stills and Animations Challenge is "The Mother Hive" by Rudyard 
Kipling 1865-1936

      Sounds good to me!  :o)

     (I'm aware that the animations page isn't showing. I have no idea why, 
but this will be fixed sometime this evening. Sorry about this).

Strange. Yesterday I had a look at it.

   Oooh... Imagination is running riot Thomas! It could be something to do 
with the original story by Mr. RK, or something Sci-Fi. Who knows?!

   I think this will open up a new world for me in particular, as I've been 
doing too many 'Still Life' images recently.

    I did too, and it was there, and then 'whoosh', it was gone. Not 
expected on my part.

     Later mate...

Yes, a very exciting concept, especially give the "so far" permissive 
attitude of entrants regarding topic interpretation.

Many sci-fi topics I'm sure, but I've never even heard of the Battle of 
Basilisk, so I'll leave this area of ponderance to someone else. Same 
with fantasy? Do dragons or faeries live in hives?

Some edited brainstorming (after having read a bit of the story):

apine ingenue
Marge Simpson
mead
the land of milk and honey
ambrosia
pirates' cove
police station
brothel of kung-fu hookers
sweatshop
machine or computer internals
skyscraper
cancer cells

Where did you get the story? Is it on-line?

Sounds interesting.

Well, since the title is from Project Gutenberg... :)

It's a part of a collection of short stories, which is titled "Actions
  and Reactions".

Really? How come I didn´t know this? I just thought there was a list of
books somewhere and they were using the titles for topics. I honestly
thought people had to buy the books to read them. Project Gutenberg! Wow!

This is great. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

And a little more pointing: ;)

You know, you don't need to read the books - the image's content need 
not bear any relation to the book content, it just needs to be something 
  that fits the title itself.

Or it could be something that symbolises the book or anything that is
related to it. IM(ns)HO :-)
