I took this collection of flower pictures on my birthday. It wasn’t my birthday recently, but I’m sure you know when my birthday was without Facebook telling you.
These flowers and the dog were all found in my yard.
This is the final set of peripheral images I took on my road trip with Shannon harvesting the town signs of Warren County. The last couple of pictures are from Maxwell that I took on my way back home. I stopped there because I still needed to photograph their Freedom Rock. They have a tank next to their Freedom Rock. Story County don’t play.
It was a good trip and hopefully Shannon joins me for another town sign harvesting trip in the future.
This is the final collection of auxiliary images I took while on a road trip with Carla to Butler County to harvest their town signs.
I plan in great detail the order in which I will harvest the town signs on these trips, but I don’t really plan for other stops. I like these trips to be as organic as possible and to be surprised at the things I find. One of the most amazing discoveries on this trip was that memorial garden/park we found in Bristow with the little chapel. I had no clue it existed and I was so glad we found it.
This is your reminder that this week’s THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is TIME:
Happy photo harvesting!
Despite it being late in the year and FLOWERs not necessarily being in abundance this time of year, FLOWER ended up fueling the creative fires of quite a few people.
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:
TIME! What a great theme for Year 8 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!
But what is exactly a TIME photo? In a way, all images are a TIME photo because all pictures record a little slice of TIME that will never ever happen again. Your challenge is to figure out how to capture that slice of TIME. Will you use a quick shutter speed to freeze TIME? Will you use a slow shutter speed to make TIME seem more fluid? Will you be more literal and like the theme reveal image take a picture of a TIME recording device?
While thinking on making your TIME image, meditate on the following quote:
Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.
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.
You can send your images to either firstname.lastname@example.org OR you may text them to my Pixel 5.
That is all I got, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will all be sharing our idea of TIME in this place that is little more than a shadow of my time next Monday.
