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:
Alexis Stensland (Iowa) – 5 weeks
34 participants! A pretty good week by current standards!
There were submissions this week taken in the following places:
Here is the current calendar year list for states:
+ New Hampshire
+ New Jersey
+ New Mexico
+ New York
+ North Carolina
+ North Dakota
+ South Carolina
+ South Dakota
+ Washington D.C.
40 states and 1 district! That is pretty impressive! Over 75% of the way there! Every continental state west of the Mississippi is now accounted for.
The Outside of the United States map is currently:
+ British Virgin Islands
+ Nassau Bahamas
+ Puenta de la Reina, Spain
There were no major milestones this week. The first ever submission by Diane Sharp though!
It was a bloodbath of streaks though. Becky, and Julie couldn’t build on last week’s submission. Mary’s streak ends at 4.
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:
PORTRAIT! What a great theme for Year 10 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!
But what is a PORTRAIT? It is simply a picture of somebody. Can be one person. Can be several people. Can be you. It can be a posed picture. It can be a candid picture. The options are aplenty!
While thinking about possible subjects for your PORTRAIT, meditate on the following quote and I have no doubt that you will come up with a fabulous image:
My job as a portrait photographer is to seduce, amuse and entertain.
I look forward to 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 PORTRAIT in this place that is a self-portrait next Monday.
