Round Robin Photo Challenge: Obstruction!

This challenge is now closed!
Thanks for playing. :)

Greetings, merry Robins!

The next Round Robin Photo Challenge topic comes to us from Nancy, of the photoblog Nancy Luvs Pix. We'll let her explain the particulars:

The topic is "Obstruction". This can be interpreted in any way the photographer wishes. For example, perhaps there's a wonderful photo opportunity that you just can't get due to something in its way. Let's see what's blocking that near-perfect shot! Or... maybe shoot a photo of something that's obstructing your growth in some way. Be creative!

What a neat idea! How many great sunset pictures are ruined by houses and telephone poles? How many great landscapes have a fence in the way? Here's your chance to make the obstruction part of the composition, and see it in a different way. Or what about the obstructive people in your life - the uncooperative co-workers, the bratty sibling? Okay, maybe you don't want to call them obstructive to their faces, but perhaps there's some object that represents them. Or maybe your obstruction is that textbook from that course you're having trouble with, the one that stands between you and your degree or certification. We're sure you can think of other obstructions. These are just a few ideas to get you started!

Go take your obstruction photos, and post them on Wednesday, March 29th, anytime between midnight and midnight. If you have to, you can post up to a week afterward, but we ask that you not post your entry before Wednesday the 29th. This makes it easier for everyone to find and appreciate your entry.

Between now and then, aside from taking the pictures, we ask that you RSVP if you plan to participate, in the comments to this entry. Even if you're done this before, please include all of the following in your comment:

  • Your first name
  • The name of the blog or blogs where you'll be posting
  • The URL of each blog you'll be posting in

This is to enable us to have a complete and error-free linking list ready by the posting date.

Have fun! We'll see your obstructions in just under two weeks!

Karen & Carly

P.S. Ironically, Blogger has been an obstruction to getting this entry posted tonight. Every time I click on Publish Post, the response is "There were errors."

Quick note: the Bloglet feed was interrupted by Blogger's problems, but I've fixed it. - KFB
