The old WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE seems to still be suffering from a case of the winter blues. Hopefully participation rates will rebound in the next few weeks as the weather gets warmer again.
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:
STILL LIFE! What a great theme! What is a STILL LIFE photo? Here is a good definition:
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.
As usual, I can’t wait to see 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 firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge due date. 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
I’m pleased to announce that Shadi Mubaidin is the latest to show taste, class, and sophistication by signing up for a Photography 139 email subscription. I used to work with Shadi back in another life. In my days at the Campus Outpost of the Evil Clown Empire. If you see Shadi out and about walking the mean streets of Des Moines, feel free to give him a knowing glance and show him the super secret Photography 139 Handshake.
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 still Monday!
