Before I get into the business of the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE, I need to point out that today is Memorial Day. Happy Memorial Day. Don’t forget what this day celebrates.
Iowa Veterans Cemetery – Van Meter, Iowa
The WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE took its customary holiday hit for participation rates. I also know that STORE is not the most popular theme, even though I enjoy it. However, as we close in on another new set of 52 themes, I would advise you to suggest themes for the next 52 themes. The best way to do that is to leave a comment in the “Comments” section of this here blog.
The only theme suggested for this next 52 has been BREAKFAST by Andy Sharp. Only 51 theme ideas to go!
However, you didn’t come here to talk all tommyrot about participation rates, you came to see the submissions:
Christopher D. Bennett
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:
RELIGION! What a great theme! But what is a RELIGION photo? A RELIGION photo is any photo that involves the practice of religious belief. That could be a religious book, a religious building, religious art, or religious ritual.
As usual, I look forward to seeing your interpretations!
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION
1. 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.
2. Your submission needs to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge due date. 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.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 WEBMASTER
2 out of the last 3 days and 3 times in the last 30, the publishing of the blog has caused the website to crash. I’m currently working on the matter. Hopefully this post didn’t crash the website. This will possibly lead to a new page being added to the website. We will see.
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 religious Monday!
