Hello and welcome to week 19 of The Gallery.
We’ve seen some fabulous photographs over the weeks and some amazing stories to go with them.
You really have been pulling out all the stops.
So this week I’m going to make it niiiice and simple.
And by nice and simple you just know I don’t actually mean simple.
This week I thought we could have a bit of fun. I want you all to have a good ole think about your photographs – and make us think too.
For this week’s Gallery let’s get creative and flex everyone’s little grey cells.
This week’s theme is: Can you see what it is yet?
Ahh, takes me right back: remember when Rolf Harris used to say that?
So, take a photograph of something everyday, but take it at a different angle, from a different viewpoint, using a close-up zoom, whatever – something that makes that everyday object look totally different.
And we all have to guess what it is.
The idea is the brainchild of English Mum
, whose cousin at Don’t Bug Me
hosts Macro Mystery where you have to do exactly as I’ve described above . . .
I think it’s a brilliant idea.
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 words and 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.
The more support you give, the more you will get back.
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 …
