The Gallery: Week 21

Hello and welcome to week 21 of The Gallery.

I’ve had my hand slapped of late for making the themes too hard. While some of you are game for anything, others whine and moan and complain (and then do it anyway!) if I don’t set the theme as something really easy like ‘shapes’ or ‘light’ or ‘photographs of my family in compromising positions’.
So I’m going to be really really nice to you this week.
You are going to L O V E me.
This week’s theme is: Nature.
I think my love of trees is well documented by now, so go out there and have fun. The world is a beautiful place – show it to me in all its glory.
And. And. There will be a prize for the best entry. Not the best photograph, the best all-round entry, so words and photo will be considered . . .
The prize? A luxury hamper from the king of chocolate makers Green & Black’s.
There will also be runners up prizes up for grabs.

While you’re mulling over what photo to use you can also spend 2 minutes helping the lovely people at Green & Black’s who are looking for parents to fill in a very quick online survey to gauge your chocolate consumption. Which one of you is going to admit to having a secret stash that no one knows about on top of the fridge/behind the tins of baked beans/back of the washing machine?
I have a guest judge helping me with whittling the entries down, so not trying to sweet-talk the judge now . . . Well, maybe just a little bit.
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.

So what are you waiting for, 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.

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 …
