28 participants this week! That is a great week! A slight dip from the last couple weeks, but that is okay. The ebb and flows.

Sabas and Monica both joined the double digit streak club! WooHoo! Congrats!

There were submissions from all over the globe this week. Submissions came from France, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, Texas, Nebraska, Kansas, California and Alaska. I believe the picture from Alaska is the farthest north I’ve ever had a submission come from. France is pretty far east, but I think I’ve had submissions from Italy before. I don’t know what is the farthest west or farthest south off the top of my head. I think there might have been some Caribbean island pictures in the past that are the farthest south. Possibly the Alaska picture is also the farthest west too. I know people that have been in Hawai’i, but I don’t think they have submitted from there. Then you get to a point where, what is east and what is west. Some of those states are assumptions based on where people live.

I took my picture about 1 mile from my front door.

The Alaska picture, if you are wondering, is Shannon’s. I better you can figure out the pictures from France on your own.

But it wasn’t all sunshine and flowers and Iowa State beating Iowa in soccer. AND volleyball. AND football. There was some bad news. Derrick, Evie, Sarah Karber, and Steve couldn’t extend their streak past 1 week.

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:


WEEK 366 - PATHS
PATHS

PATHS! What a great theme for Year 9 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!

WARNING! WARNING! NEXT MONDAY I WILL NOT BE NEAR A COMPUTER DURING THE MORNING! THEREFORE, THERE WILL DEFINITELY BE NO REMINDER MESSAGES NEXT WEEK! YOU WILL BE ON YOUR OWN TO GET YOUR SUBMISSIONS IN!

But what is a PATHS image? It is simply an image where a PATH(S) is a major compositional element. Lots of things can qualify as a PATH(S). A sidewalk. A trail. A street. Railroad tracks. A PATH(S) doesn’t just show where somebody or something is going, but can also show where they have been.

While considering possible subjects for your image, mediate on the following quote:

If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.
-Anatole France

I look forwarding to seeing your interpretation.

RULES

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 bennett@photography139.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 PATHS in this place that is my trail through the wilderness of life next Monday.
