These pictures didn’t have what it takes to be included with the PURPLE theme for the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE:
If only these pictures believed in themselves, there is no telling what they might accomplish!
This week I had a technology snafu, so if you emailed in a picture before the 11 AM deadline and don’t see it posted, just email it to me again and I’ll get it up. Late, but I’ll get it up.
But you didn’t come here to talk all tommyrot about technology and snafus. You just want to see the submission for PURPLE:
A solid week of submissions!
But enough dwelling on the past. Time to look to the future. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future! This week’s theme:
PORTRAIT! What a great theme! I think everybody knows what a PORTRAIT is, but don’t think that you have to make this a formal portrait. A group of people awkwardly posed in front of some scene from nature. You CAN do that, but you don’t have to do that. Candids work great as well! Don’t think that a PORTRAIT has to be of a human subject. Animals make great portraits. So do inanimate objects. Don’t think that a PORTRAIT has to be of a face. Think creatively and feel free to define the theme any way you see fit!
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION
1. The picture has to be taken the week of the theme. This isn’t a curate your pictures challenge. This is a get your butt off the couch (my personal experience) and put your camera in your hands challenge. Don’t send me a picture of you next to the Eiffel Tower, when I know you were in Iowa all week. I will point out that I have let that slide some in the past. I will not in the future. Since it is literally about the only rule.
2. Your submission needs to be emailed to email@example.com by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge. It should be pointed out that this blog auto-publishes at 12:01 on Mondays. So it wouldn’t hurt to get your picture in earlier.
That is it, them’s the rules.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION
Nothing new to report. I’ll try to do better next week.
Want your own Photography 139 email subscription? Call, email, or text me and I’ll get you the hook up.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 GALLERY DIVISION
Sometimes people send me descriptions of their photos. I’ve never done anything with that information in the past. However, if you send me a description in the future, I will add it to your image in the Weekly Photo Challenge Gallery that houses all the submissions.
That’s all I got for today, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will commune right here again next Monday. Hopefully it will be a very portraity Monday!
Last Wednesday was the last youth group of the year. It was an interesting year and filled with challenges, but hopefully it turned out alright.
On the last night, we just had a movie night. The kids watched MOANA and painted. Here are a few pictures from that night:
It will be interesting to see what happens with the youth group next year. Hopefully, they finally hire somebody to fill Alisa’s giant shoes.
If you’re wondering what I’m going to do with my future Wednesday nights, I will be starting a new photo project (hopefully) and will be revealing the details (hopefully) next Wednesday.
The folder called 07-16-07 was all over the place. You’ll be happy to know that I got all of my Jason Voorhees jokes about this set of images out of my system before I wrote this here journal entry.
Next “Saturday’s” folder might involve donuts. Although, I will probably just skip the donut folder because it gets weird.
