The big accomplish week this week was Sheri joining the Double Digits Streak Club! WooHoo!
But it wasn’t all good news. Suzie’s 7 week streak came crashing to a halt. The humanity!
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 for Year 10 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!
But what exactly is a SHADOW photo? Simply put it is a picture where a SHADOW plays a major compositional element.
While considering a possible subject for your SHADOW picture meditate on the following quote and I have no doubt you will come up with a fascinating interpretation.
To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
-Ursula K. Le Guin
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 SHADOW in this place that is a candle in my life next Monday.
