Last week’s theme represented the 26th theme of Year 9 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE. Thought I would share a few of those statistics that I like so much. Although, I don’t think these are as meaningless as the statistics I share during the milestone posts.
6 Month Statistics
+ 36 different people have submitted at least one photo. (37 if you count Harrison and Beck separately, but are twins really separate people?)
+ The following people have submitted every week so far:
* Micky Augustin
* Shannon Bardole-Foley
* Kio Dettman
* Cathie Morton
* Elizabeth Nordeen
* Andy Sharp
* Bill Wentworth
+ On the other end of the spectrum, the following people have submitted exactly one week:
* Robyn Augustin
* Jodie Cue
* Derrick Gorshe
+ People with submission rates above 90% (but below 100%) are:
* Michelle Haupt – 96%
* Teresa Kahler – 96%
* Tamara Peterson – 96%
* Carla Stensland – 96%
+ There have been 786 photos submitted.
+ There have been 572 combined participants. That is an average of 22 participants a week
+ The most popular theme has been SELF-PORTRAIT with 31 participants. The least popular theme has been ROCK with 16 participants.
+ The theme that snapped the most streaks was ENTERTAINMENT. Snapped 11 streaks.
Now on to the second half of Year 9.
ROAD TRIP. It is one of my favorite things to do, but did it prove to be a popular theme with the masses? You’ll have to keep scrolling to find out.

But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about participation rates or streaks. You came to see the submissions and what streaks continued and what streaks flamed out:
Joe Duff – 15 weeks
26 participants! That is a great week! I’m particularly pumped about the first ever submissions by Sabas and Brandon! Hopefully there are more in the future from them! Maybe Sabas can even get Elainie to submit?!?! Who knows? Crazier things have happened.
There was only one streak snapped. That was the one week streak by two man photography team of Beck and Harrison, but to expect toddlers to go on a ROAD TRIP, might have been asking a bit much.
Linda reached the double digit club for streaks! Michelle reached the 6 Month club! Big accomplishments! Congratulations!
Here are the current streaks:
9. Teresa Kahler – 25 weeks
9. Tamara Peterson – 25 weeks
9. Carla Stensland – 25 weeks
8. Michelle Haupt – 26 weeks
7. Micky Augustin – 27 weeks
6. Andy Sharp – 28 weeks
5. Bill Wentworth – 29 weeks
4. Cathie Morton – 33 weeks
3. Elizabeth Nordeen – 34 weeks
2. Shannon Bardole-Foley – 36 weeks
1. Kio Dettman – 39 weeks
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:
WORK! What a great theme for Year 9 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!
But what is a WORK image? A WORK picture is simply a picture of somebody doing WORK or tools that are used to do WORK or a place where WORK is done. Remember not everybody has to WORK as hard as I do. Some people have slacker jobs where they get to frolic on a mezzanine or play with trains all day. Try not to think how hard I have it at the Computer Mine and maybe think on the physics definition of WORK. The measure of energy transfer that occurs when an object is moved over a distance by an external force.
WARNING: If you are taking a picture at your place of employment, consider what things in your picture your employer would not want the rest of the world to see. You won’t get in trouble with me, but you might with one of your eight bosses.
While considering your possible subjects for your submission, meditate on the following quote:
So I’m sitting in my cubicle today and I realized that ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So it means that every single day you see me, that’s on the worse day of my life.
– OFFICE SPACE
I look forward to seeing your interpretation.
The picture has to be taken between 12:01 PM today and 11 AM next Monday. This isn’t a curate your photos project. This is a get your butt off the couch (unless you are taking your picture from the couch) and take pictures challenge.
You can send your images to either email@example.com OR you may text them to my Pixel 5.
That is all I got, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will all be sharing your idea of WORK in this place that doesn’t feel like WORK for me next Monday.
