Despite the nicer weather, participation rates for the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE haven’t rebounded. Might be time to consider retiring it at the end of this 52 week run. THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE must be getting OLD. Maybe even ELDERLY. Perhaps time to put it out to pasture. Perhaps ready for retirement!
But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about participation rates, you came to see the submissions:
A solid week of 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:
SHADOW! What a great theme! But what is a SHADOW photograph. A SHADOW photograph is a photograph where a SHADOW plays a prominent role in the photo. It can literally be a picture of a SHADOW. But it can also be a picture where a SHADOW lands on your subject. A silhouette photo is an example of a SHADOW photograph.
As always, I will be interested in 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 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
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 shadowy Monday!
