While there a lot of states covered, there were no new states added to the map.
Here is the current calendar year list for states:
+ New Jersey
+ New York
17 states! That is pretty impressive!
The Outside of the United States map is currently:
+ British Virgin Islands
+ Nassau Bahamas
I took my picture in my basement. So, I didn’t add to the map, yet again.
The big milestone with week was Nathanial and Vest reaching the double digit steak club! WooHoo!
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:
COMPETITION! What a great theme for Year 10 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!
But what is a COMPETITION image? It is simply an image of beings engaged in some kind of contest. Or it can be a picture of something that is used in a COMPETITION. Like a bowling ball. Or it can be a picture of the result of a COMPETITION. Like a trophy. There are so many possibilities!
While thinking about a possible subject for you submission, meditate on the following quote and I have no doubt you will come up with a great image:
Life is nothing but a competition to be the criminal rather than the victim.
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. There is a limit of 3 submissions per participant. To be considered the photographer, you have to be the one that takes the picture. Don’t be stealing the work of other artists. You can submit pictures for other photographers that took pictures with your camera or phone, but give credit where credit is due.
You can send your images to either email@example.com OR you may text them to my Pixel 5.
That is it. Thems the rules!
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 COMPETITION in this place that tries not be competitive it next Monday.
