THE STREETS. I knew this would be a tough theme that only the tough would be able to handle. I was right about THE STREETS. It isn’t for everybody.
But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about participation rates. You came to see the 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:
SKY! What a great theme! I don’t think SKY takes much explanation. It is that thing above us. Sometimes blue. Sometimes black. Sometimes red or orange or pink. Sometimes there are clouds in it. Sometimes there aren’t clouds in it. Sometimes there are planes in it. Sometimes there isn’t.
I would argue that you shouldn’t just look straight up and take a picture. There is nothing wrong with that. But I would challenge you to look for something else to put in your picture. It could be the SKY reflecting off of something else. A window. A puddle. Your favorite pair of sunglasses. Or you could change your perspective, so that the SKY is a powerful background for another subject.
As always, I look forward to seeing your interpretations.
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.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 GALLERY DIVISION
Sometimes people send me descriptions of their photos. I’ve never done anything with that information in the past. However, if you send me a description in the future, I will add it to your image in the Weekly Photo Challenge Gallery that houses all the submissions.
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 sky high Monday!
