48 straight weeks of double digit submissions. Once again, I didn’t have to send out any reminder texts this morning! Just 4 more weeks, and it will be one straight year! That is impressive folks! But let us not count our bantams until they are hatched.
But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk all tommyrot about participation rates. You came to see the submissions:
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:
SKY! What a great theme! But what is a SKY photo? A SKY photo is any picture that uses the SKY as a major compositional element. Or it could be a picture taken from the SKY. Or it could be another interpretation.
A note, next Monday is Labor Day. While banks and government employees take the day off, there are no days off for Photography 139. If you are going out carousing, still plan on getting your submission in by 11 AM!
Another note, SKY is the last theme for Year 7 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE. Next week will start something slightly different. Nothing will really change on your end, but there will be something slightly different for a few weeks, like 17 of them. Details will come out next week.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION
The picture has to be taken the week of the theme. This isn’t a curate your pictures challenge. This is a get your butt off the couch (my personal experience) and put your camera in your hands challenge. Don’t send me a picture of you next to the Eiffel Tower, when I know you were in Iowa all week. I will point out that I have let that slide some in the past. I will not in the future. Since it is literally about the only rule.
Your submission needs to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge due date.
I now allow people to text me their submissions. In the past, I had made exceptions for a couple people that aren’t real computer savvy, even though it was an inconvenience for me and required at least 3 extra steps for me. I am now lifting that embargo because I have a streamline way of uploading photos. I’m not giving out my phone number, but if you have it, you can text me.
It should be pointed out that this blog auto-publishes at 12:01 on Mondays. So it wouldn’t hurt to get your picture in earlier.
That is it, them’s the rules.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION
Nobody showed class, taste, and sophistication this week by signing up for a Photography 139 email subscription. I’ll try and do better next week.
That’s all I got for today, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will commune right here again next Monday. Hopefully it will be a very sky high Monday!
