Round Robin Challenge: Words and Pictures

Hi, Robins! This next one is a variation on one we did years ago, about Signs. The Challenge for Saturday, July 12th is


Words and Pictures

Show us one or more photographs of something that contains both words and pictures. It can be a book cover, an autographed picture, a poster, a sign, the box some new purchase came in or whatever. It doesn't have to be the whole thing, as long as it contains at least one word and at least one photo, painting, drawing, cartoon, sketch or other kind of picture. In fact, it's better if your photo either shows your subject in its larger context (e.g. a sign and the building it's on) or a detail within the overall subject (e.g. a small part of a larger map).

Here are the guidelines:

1. Grab your camera or go through your files, and bring us at least one picture of something with both words and pictures on it.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photos.

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, Saturday, July 12th, 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: Wild Ways


Hi, Robins! This next one is a variation on one we've done before, but with more leeway to get creative with it. The Challenge for Saturday, June 28th is

 


Wild things, and even semi-wild creatures, have their own ways of doing things. Sometimes we're lucky enough to photograph them doing it! Wild plants, too, have particular ways of growing. Closer to home, we often find our beloved dogs and cats echoing the behavior of their wild ancestors. Even some people are known for their wild ways, doing things other people would never attempt. So here is your Challenge: show us the wild ways of any living thing.

Here are the guidelines:

1. Grab your camera or go through your files, and bring us at least one picture of wild ways - something wild or semi-wild doing its wild thing.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photos.

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, June 28th, 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 Photo: Sunrise, Sunset

Hi, Robins! Here's a pretty straightforward topic, inspired by my total failure to take a good photo from my driveway early this evening. The Challenge for Saturday, June 14th is



Sunrise, Sunset

Who doesn't love a sunset photo? Show us one or more of your best sunset shots, old or new. But ALSO show us a sunrise photo! Can the best sunrise pictures ever top the sunset ones? You tell me - or better yet, show me!

Here are the guidelines:

1. Grab your camera or go through your files, and bring us at least one sunset photo, plus at least one sunrise - not necessarily in that order.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photos.

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, June 14th, 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: Really Old


Hi, Robins! This next one is a topic that's been on my mind a lot lately. The Challenge for Saturday, May 31st is

Really Old

 Old books. Old people. Antique furniture. Historic buildings. If it's old, it counts - with one stipulation. Old is relative, of course, but let's not stretch the definition too much. I'm not talking about month-old milk, or your first cell phone. Let's stick to people, places and things that are at least 60 years old - and a century old is better!

Here are the guidelines:

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures of anything or anyone over 60 years old. Older is better, so let's try for subjects that have lasted since the early 1900s or earlier.

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, May 31st, 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: Funny Stuff

Hi, Robins! The next Challenge is based more on a certain feeling  than on whether it's taken inside or outside, or what is in the frame. The topic for Saturday, May 17th is

Round Robin Photo Challenge - Funny Stuff (The Simpsons)

It could be something to do with the Funnies, as people used to call comic strips in the newspaper. It could be something to do with cartoons, or a comedian you saw in concert, or merchandise from a funny movie. It could be a lolcat or a loldog, or a family member making a face, or a whimsical piece of public art. If it has anything to do with humor, I want to see it!

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures of anything funny, or at least humor-adjacent.

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, May 17th, 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: May Flowers

Hi, Robins! By the time we get to the next Challenge date, Saturday, May 3rd, Spring will be half over in the Northern hemisphere. The time is right for our next Challenge topic:


May Flowers


It's a terrible old joke, but I can't stop myself from quoting it here:

Q: If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?
A: Pilgrims.

Or, as I always insisted, June bugs.

On May 3rd, show us the very latest flowers you can find, with or without the bugs. The guidelines are a little different for this one:

1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures of any kind of flowers. This time, I'm looking for the very latest photos, if you can manage it. If you must dig into your archives, try for some flowers you actually photographed last May, or the May before.

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, May 3rd, 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!
