The Gallery

Photography is my ‘thing’, my love, my passion.
That’s not to say I’m particularly good at it or even know what I’m talking about, but I do appreciate good photos and love taking them.

And so, to this end, I launched The Gallery, a weekly feature for people like me to participate in.
I want to encourage other bloggers, offer inspiration, give them all a place to showcase their work.
It’s essentially a virtual art gallery of photographs which opens its doors every week for everyone and anyone to join in.

Every Friday I give a prompt, an idea, a notion and you go out and take a photograph using that prompt. Or just use a photo you already have.
The prompt could be one word, an object, an idea, a phrase, anything, and you have to post a picture which you feel represents that prompt.
Post it on your blog and write about it.
That’s it.

It’s not about taking technically brilliant photos – although if you do, I’d love to see them too. It’s about having a passion for pictures; any photos, all photos whether you took it with your all singing all dancing SLR or snapped it on your camera phone.

When you’ve published it, come back on Wednesday and via a groovy widget thing you can add a link to your post and share it with everyone.
Visit others, comment if you like them or feel inspired by them. Just go out and encourage and support amateur photographers out there.
You can subscribe to the Sticky Fingers feed to ensure you get all posts to your inbox.

To date The Gallery has exceeded my wildest dreams. I have seen people discovering each other, I have seen people really push themselves, I have seen fantastic writing to accompany photographs and best of all I have seen people rediscover their love of photographs.

If you like what you’ve read here then come join in. We really are a lovely bunch.
You can see the old entries for yourself here.
And if you’d like the fancy pants code for yourself, I have that too . . .


Here are all the themes we’ve completed to date:
Now go take lots of photos . . .
