The Gallery: Week 8

Hello and welcome to week 8 of The Gallery.

It’s been an emotional rollercoaster, I won’t lie to you.
I’ve met lots and lots of interesting new people, I’ve read amazing things; sad things, joyous things, interesting things, things which made me see the people who wrote them in a different light.
And it’s been brilliant to see how people interpret the prompts in hugely different ways.
I am enjoying The Gallery more than I ever thought I would and I really hope you are too.

So. What theme to give this week’s virtual art gallery?
I really wanted to do something tough this week. Not tough enough to put anyone off, but tough enough to really make you have to think on it a while. Mull it over. Ponder.
And let me tell you, coming up with such a theme is tough in itself!

Anyway, enough excuses, this week’s theme is: 7 deadly sins.

Oooo, I can hear the intake of breath!
This is from an idea prompted by @missleslieanne so if you hate it blame her . . .
The sins are: Wrath, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy, Gluttony.
Pick one. Unless you can do all 7, then go for it!

As always, come back on Wednesday to add your link, visit as many others 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.

Now get clicking!

The Gallery
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.
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.
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.

And if you want to add a pukka linkable Gallery button to your blog (instead of the amateurish one I’ve been using!) the code is just under The Gallery picture in the right hand column on this blog.
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 or email feed.
Go on, clicky click away, you know you want to …
