Round Robin Challenge: Spring Time


Hi, Robins! The next Challenge is adapted from one of Carly's suggestions. The topic for Saturday, April 19th is

Fisher Price Little Snoopy
Spring Time


Carly described her original suggestion this way: "Spring. Anything from a slinky to a beautiful flower garden."

What we'd like to see this time out is anything that involves any kind of spring, whether it's that season between Winter and Summer, or the coil of metal inside an old pocket watch. It could even be an animal springing after its prey, or a hero springing into action! Whatever it is, we want to see it!

In case you're just joining us, here are the guidelines to participate:

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures involving some kind of spring. Archived photos or videos are okay as long as you took them yourself.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photo(s) or video(s).

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, April 19, 2014, post the results on any blog, social media site or online photo album. Don't forget to link back to here in your entry, so your readers can check out the other Robins' contributions.

4. Please visit the other Robins' entries, and comment if so moved. The list of entries will be posted at the bottom of this entry starting around midnight MST on the Challenge date, and updated through the day.

That's all there is to it! Have fun, and go be photographers!

Round Robin: Dress Up

Hi, Robins! The next Challenge takes us into the world of textiles - and maybe into other worlds entirely. The topic for Saturday, April 5th is


 Dress Up 

My particular inspiration here, as you may guess from the photo, is costumes from SF cosplay. But the topic is much broader than that. Any kind of costume counts, any dress, tux and tails, doll clothes, anything worn by anything or anyone as long as it's out of the ordinary - fancy, elegant, vintage, stylish or just plain weird!

The usual guidelines apply:

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures of someone or something in fancy dress (costumes or formal wear or anything along those lines). Archived photos or videos are okay as long as you took them yourself.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photo(s) or video(s).

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, April 5, 2014, post the results on any blog, social media site or online photo album. Don't forget to link back to here in your entry, so your readers can check out the other Robins' contributions.

4. Please visit the other Robins' entries, and comment if so moved. The list of entries will be posted at the bottom of this entry starting around midnight MST on the Challenge date, and updated through the day.

That's all there is to it! Have fun, and go be photographers!

Round Robin Challenge: Being Green

Hi, Robins! The next Challenge is in honor of the coming equinox, but don't let that throw you!  The topic for Saturday, March 22nd is


Being Green


As Kermit the Frog reminds us, "Green is the color of Spring," but it's much more than that. Green is associated with plants and some animals, with U.S. currency and St. Patrick's Day, with ecological sustainability and the emotions envy and jealousy. For this Challenge, feel free to photograph anything green - but if it illustrates some larger concept of green-ness, so much the better!

The usual guidelines apply:

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures of something green (or on the green, or in the green, or green-minded, or...). Archived photos or videos are okay as long as you took them yourself.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photo(s) or video(s).

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, March 22, 2014, post the results on any blog, social media site or online photo album. Don't forget to link back to here in your entry, so your readers can check out the other Robins' contributions.

4. Please visit the other Robins' entries, and comment if so moved. The list of entries will be posted at the bottom of this entry starting around midnight MST on the Challenge date, and updated through the day.

That's all there is to it! Have fun, and go be photographers!

Round Robin Challenge: In the Dark

Hi, Robins! The next Challenge is one that I personally am going to find, well, challenging!  The topic for Saturday, February 22nd is

 The usual guidelines apply:

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures taken in the dark. Archived photos or videos are okay as long as you took them yourself.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photo(s) or video(s).

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, February 22, 2014, post the results on any blog, social media site or online photo album. Don't forget to link back to here in your entry, so your readers can check out the other Robins' contributions.

4. Please visit the other Robins' entries, and comment if so moved. The list of entries will be posted at the bottom of this entry starting around midnight MST on the Challenge date, and updated through the day.

That's all there is to it! Have fun, and go be photographers!

Round Robin Challenge: Rear View

Hi, Robins! The next Challenge idea comes from Carly, who recently came up with a whole list of cool ones to keep us from running dry!  The topic for Saturday, February 8th is



Carly's instruction is simple: "Take a photo of something behind you." The tricky part, of course, is, well, actually, there are two tricky parts:

1. How can you take a picture while facing the other way? and
2. How can we tell that's what you did?

Well, here's your chance to figure that part out!

 The usual guidelines apply:

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures of something behind you. Archived photos or videos are okay as long as you took them yourself.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photo(s) or video(s).

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, February 8, 2014, post the results on any blog, social media site or online photo album. Don't forget to link back to here in your entry, so your readers can check out the other Robins' contributions.

4. Please visit the other Robins' entries, and comment if so moved. The list of entries will be posted at the bottom of this entry starting around midnight MST on the Challenge date, and updated through the day.

That's all there is to it! Have fun, and go be photographers!
