Some of the stalwarts didn’t make it for LANDSCAPE. That’s okay. When one person falls, another person can pick up the torch and carry on.
But you don’t want to listen to me talk all tommyrot about torches. You want to see the submissions for LANDSCAPE:
A healthy and diverse collection 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:
Yes! STILL LIFE! He heard a cry across the landscape. But what is STILL LIFE? Try this definition for size!
Still life photography is a genre of photography used for the depiction of inanimate subject matter, typically a small group of objects. It is the application of photography to the still life artistic style. An example is food photography.
So find a group of inanimate objects. Group them together. Take their photo. Bam! STILL LIFE!
As always… feel free to interpret the theme however 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
