I wasn’t sure how POP ART would go over as a WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme as it is a little bit harder to wrap one’s mind around than the typical theme. However, there was still good participation. I love it!
Although I good stand here and talk all tommyrot about participation, you just want to see the submissions. Here they are:
Christopher D. Bennett
Angie DeWaard 1
Angie DeWaard 2
Cathie Raley 1

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:
We did this theme not that long ago, so it should be fairly fresh in the old memory banks. A picture of anything that might be a part of a road trip. My personal favorite road trip pictures are the super kitschy ones where your posse takes their picture in front of some landmark. That’s just what I enjoy. It isn’t like the photography I enjoy had me recently compared to a serial killer or something… By people who I’m sure are experts in the field… But I digress. All sorts of things would qualify. Pictures of an open road. Pictures of a car. Of a map. Of some place you went on a road trip. A ROAD TRIP could be solo. It could be with 5 friends. It could be a trip across the country. It could be a trip to the store. You’ll figure it out. BUT I WILL REMIND ME YOU OF RULE #1! Just because you took a great ROAD TRIP last weekend… doesn’t help you at all this week.
As always, feel free to define the theme how 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.
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 open roadsy Monday
