MIRROR. Not an easy theme. But a few hearty souls got out there and took some photos. This week’s theme is quite a bit easier. Hopefully we’ll have a big wave of submissions.
But you don’t want to hear me talk all tommyrot about participation rates. You want to see the submissions. Here are the submissions for MIRROR:
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:
Whoa! Is that a picture of Christopher D. Bennett’s controversial “Blue Steel”? Yes it is! The classics never die. Which raises the question? What is art? It is kind of like how Supreme Court justice Potter Stewart described pornography: “I know it when I see it.” So look around your house or your community for ART. Go to a museum. A sculpture garden. A concert. A church. ART. You’ll know it when you see it.
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.
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 arty Monday.
