Hello and welcome to week 6 of The Gallery.
Truth be told, this feature has taken off beyond my wildest dreams.
I just love seeing everyone get all in a tiz about how they will tackle the week’s theme and am joyous that it means everyone gets as fired up about photographs as I do.
And so this dynamic virtual art gallery rolls on.
As always, visit as many as you can, say hi, discover new people, welcome them in when they discover you.
Appreciate the wonderful photos that are opening themselves up to you.
So this week’s theme. It’s a toughie, I won’t lie to you. It’s going to really divide the camp. It may even put a few people off. It’s going to take lots of thought.
And honestly? I haven’t the foggiest idea how to tackle it myself.
But I just love it.
So, this week’s them is: Ugly.
Ooo, I can hear you all groaning inwardly.
Personally I’m going to find this really really hard because I can see the beauty in most things and am always snapping away at some big ole gnarled tree or a patch of fungus because I think it looks really lovely.
So there you go, another toughie.
Many thanks to @Nicki72 for the idea (she knows why and I’m not going to embarrass her by telling you why!)
Now get clicking!
If you’re new to The Gallery, here’s the brief: I will give you 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.
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.
You don’t even have to be a blogger to take part – just send me your photo and I will publish it on my blog for you. You don’t even have to include your name if you prefer.
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. The link remains open for a week.
Visit others, comment if you like them or feel inspired by them. Just go out and encourage and support amateur photographers out there.
Come back on Wednesday and join in. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
And if you want to make sure you don’t miss any prompts or entries in future, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed.
Go on, clicky click away, you know you want to …
