Looks like the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE went on Spring Break. Perhaps SILHOUETTE is too challenging of a theme. I’m not sure, but participation numbers this week are as low as they’ve ever been. Worries me that the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE might be on the way out. I guess we’ll see what this week brings.
But you don’t want to listen to me talk all tommyrot about participation rates. You want to see this week’s submissions:
While they might be small in numbers, the submissions are spirited!
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:
I don’t think I need to define ORANGE. It is a color. Not a primary color. But a color. There are lots of things out that are ORANGE. Even some humans fake tan themselves into a strange, creepy ORANGE hue. Of course there is a fruit that is ORANGE. In fact, there are several fruit that are ORANGE. Or you could even take a picture of anything and slap an ORANGE filter on it. Of course 1 of my favorite movie of all-time involves the word ORANGE. I know more than 1 person out there that that does art with an ORANGE or two. I can’t envision a picture where my inbox is just packed to the gills with ORANGE pictures.
Happy photo hunting!
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.
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 orangish Monday!

Very timely theme, there, Bennett.
But where was your submission?
Are you becoming a part timer?
I promise no. Jon went to Wisconsin this weekend for work, and the kids sort of lost their minds (I’d gather the time change played into that, too). I was mostly too busy chasing them to get out the camera.
Next week, I’m going to be doing event photos at A’s school’s PTA STEM night. There will be fire tornadoes and Shannon making soap and live turkey vultures, so I’m hoping that the theme can work into something there.
I know I shouldn’t be giving parenting advice, but I saw on the internet once where a woman had unruly kids and she needed to go to the bar or some such thing. She duct taped them to the wall.
There are answers. You just have to buy lots of tape.
By next week, you mean the week starting March 20th?
I probably just haven’t been creative enough, that’s true. It would be much easier to have a meth habit that way, too, so this is really sort of selling itself.
Yep! The STEM night is 3/23. A few people from the public will be crashing, if you want to see Shannon in action. Or to see fire tornadoes. I’m excited about both. Jon is bringing the boy for the fire tornado and that group’s other demonstration, which is to crush a big metal drum with bags of ice and a spray water bottle. Our school had to turn off the fire alarms for the performance.
