Let’s have a look:


WEEK 17 - TEXTURE
TEXTURE

This should be an interesting one. It might be one of the more difficult themes, but I hope that doesn’t scare anybody away. As always, I’ll be excited to see all the submissions.

GENERAL HOUSEKEEPING NOTES

No new subscribers.
No movement on the secret handshake development front.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 14 – BLACK AND WHITE

I don’t think that it is a secret to anybody that knows me at all that black and white photography is my true photographic love. And we all know that true love is the greatest thing in the world – except for a nice MLT – mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomatoes are ripe.

But I digress.

The point is I’ve been looking forward to this week for 13 weeks now! Let’s see the submissions.

WEEK 14 - BLACK AND WHITE - MIKE VEST
Mike Vest

If it was up to me, I would’ve thrown in BLACK AND WHITE as a category 4 or 5 times. Unfortunately, it just dawned on me that it is up to me. Maybe next year.

But why dwell on the past, when we have the future to look forward to? Let us look at this week’s theme…


WEEK 15 - FRAMED
FRAMED

This category doesn’t necessarily mean an object inside of a literal frame. Think of this as an object that your view is framed by other objects. Or think of this any way that you like.

MESSAGE FROM PHOTOGRAPHY 139’S SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION.

Big time welcomes are due to not ONE, but TWO new email subscribers. So give BIG welcomes to new Photography 139 email subscribers Dawn Krause AND Joe Duff. I believe Joe to be our first subscriber from Texas! Going global… soon!

I would normally tell you that if you see them on the streets to give them a knowing glance AND don’t be shy about showing them the secret Photography 139 handshake. However, the Secret Handshake Division has yet to finalize the handshake. So at this time the knowing glance will have to suffice.

Welcome aboard Joe and Dawn. I know you shall fare well!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 12 – STILL LIFE

If I didn’t already have an established protocol for the naming of the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE journal entries, I might have named this here entry: WHERE HAVE ALL THE DUDES GONE?

Male participation has declined dramatically in the last couple of weeks. I’m not complaining for personal reasons. I’ll never complain about being surrounded by such lovely ladies. I’m just saying its weak. Get on it men!

Here are this week’s submissions for STILL LIFE:


WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE - ANGIE DEWAARD
Angie DeWaard

WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE - CHRISTOPHER D. BENNETT
Christopher D. Bennett

WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE - KIM BARKER
Kim Barker

WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE - CARLA STENSLAND
Carla Stensland

WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE - MICHELLE HAUPT
Michelle Haupt

WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE - SHANNON BARDOLE
Shannon Bardole

WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE - LAURA MILLER
Laura Miller

Time to look to the future and reveal this week’s theme:


WEEK 13 - GAMES
GAMES!

But how does one define GAMES? I would define it like this:

GAMES – noun – a form of play or sport, especially a competitive one played according to rules and decide by skill, strength, or luck.

Nothing new from Photography 139’s Shameless Self-Promotion Divison to report.

As always, I look forward to seeing this week’s submissions!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WEEK 11 – RELIGION

I knew this week’s submissions would be a little light with the combination of the theme and the holiday. However, participation didn’t take too much of a hit. Hopefully it will rebound next week. That theme is pretty easy, but does require a bit of effort.

This week’s submissions:


WEEK 11 - RELIGION - KIM BARKER
Kim Barker

WEEK 11 - RELIGION - CARLA STENSLAND
Carla Stensland

WEEK 11 - TRINITY BARKER - RELIGION
Trinity Barker

WEEK 11 - RELIGION - ANGIE DEWAARD
Angie DeWaard

WEEK 11 - RELIGION - CHRISTOPHER D. BENNETT
Christopher D. Bennett

WEEK 11 - RELIGION - SHANNON BARDOLE
Shannon Bardole

Time to reveal next week’s theme:


WEEK 12 - STILL LIFE
Still Life!

Don’t know what STILL LIFE is? That’s okay, I have a definition:

STILL LIFE – noun – a representation chiefly of inanimate objects.

No housekeeping notes today. As always, I look forward to seeing all the submissions.
