I confess I do find it quite difficult to chose a theme every week.
Sure I could do ‘light’ or ‘trees’ or ‘holidays’ but that would be far too easy for you lot.
I know you like to think, to be challenged, to spend some time mulling over the right picture and the right words.
And let’s be honest, to date what you have all come up with has been all those words like inspiring and heartwarming and I know that when Wednesday comes around and the doors open on our virtual gallery, everyone who visits will be taken on a wonderful journey.
I’ve said it before: This Gallery is a success because of YOU and I thank each and every one of you for that.
And while I’m on thank yous, a big, deep sweeping bow to all those who voted for me in The Mads awards – I am deeply, deeply honoured and have now been shortlisted in the Best Photography category for which I am truly grateful.
My fellow nominees are:
Clinically Fed Up
Carrots and Kids
All fantastic photographers and, funnily enough, some of whom you will have probably seen in The Gallery!
So, to this week’s theme.
I’ll keep it simple. The theme is: Men. Pictures of the men in your life – dads, sons, uncles, teachers, partners, brothers.
Let’s hear it for the men!
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!
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 or email feed.
Go on, clicky click away, you know you want to …
