I had a request that there be multiple posts about the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme from somebody this week because they find it difficult to keep track of the weekly theme.

I told this person that Photography 139 isn’t a nanny state and that to do such runs contrary to Photography 139’s secondary Mission Statement. The one you don’t find on the ABOUT page of the Photography 139 website.

The Photography 139 Secondary Mission Statement:

We do not train to be merciful here. Mercy is for the weak. Here, in the streets, in competition: A man confronts you, he is the enemy. An enemy deserves no mercy. STRIKE FIRST. STRIKE HARD. NO MERCY SIR!

It is one of many Photography 139 Secondary Mission Statements.

However, being a magnanimous leader, I have consented to this request. At 4 PM on Fridays, I will post a blog reminding everybody of this week’s theme. I figure most people take their photo during the weekend and nobody should have to work later than 4 PM on a Friday. We weren’t meant to live like that.

Reminder. This week’s theme:


This reminder will replace the Monday morning text message I send to frequent contributors. The People’s President is magnanimous, but he also doesn’t have all the free time in the world.
