Round Robin Challenge: “Nostalgia”

B-17Greetings Robins!
Time to welcome in a new theme and this one comes from Dorn who shares her photos on the blog, Through the Eyes of the Beholder. Dorn also authors the Dust Bunny Club of North America.

For the week of Wednesday, September 6th, Dorn has selected:

This challenge is now closed, thank you for playing :)
A quick definition of nostalgia is something past that is cherished. Don't take my word for it, lets see what Wikipedia has to say about nostalgia. Starting to get an idea for your photo? Me too, lets take a look see at technorati for more ideas as nostalgia is a blog tag. Still stumped? Jump on over to Flickr and take at look at how others have captured a bit of nostalgia in their photos. Lots of ideas now!

Do visit the rules of play if it's your first time playing or have sat out a few rounds.

Questions? Sing out in comments or give Carly, Karen or me a shout!
  • Karen: mavarin[at]
  • Carly: ondinemonet[at]
  • Steven: steven.emmett[at]
Go ahead and R.S.V.P. in comments. Follow my example. Now go be photographers and return on September the 6th with some nostalgia photography!

Round Robin Challenge: Transportation (for 8/23/06)

This challenge is now closed! Thank you for playing! :)

Note: entries for the following Challenge should be posted on Wednesday, August 23rd. PLEASE DO NOT POST EARLY! See the Welcome entry for rules of play.

Hi, Robins! Our next Challenge comes from Robin, author of the blog These are the Days of our Lives.... She has chosen topic "Transportation" for our August 23rd Challenge.

Oh, yeah! I like this one! There are so many cool things to do with it. Do you have a beloved old car, or a shiny new one, or maybe even one you've been "visiting" in automobile showrooms or used car lots? Are you a trainspotter? (There's one!) Do you like watching airplanes take off, preferably on a day without a new terrorist alert? Does your town have stagecoaches, trolleys, rickshaws, or even a monorail like North Haverbrook? (That last one is a Simpsons joke.) Maybe your favorite form of transportation isn't motorized. Heck, maybe it doesn't even have wheels!

So grab your camera, and get some pictures of some favorite or interesting kind of transportation. The date to post your pictures is Wednesday, August 23rd. As we said at the top of this entry, please do not post it early. We will remove links to entries posted before the challenge date, unless special arrangements are made in advance.

If you plan to participate, please RSVP in the comments to this blog. To make everything clear and easy, the format should be exactly this:

First Name
Name of the blog of journal where you will be posting
URL of that journal

(plus anything else you want to say, such as "Hi! I'll be posting").

If you post your Round Robin entries to two blogs, be sure to list the title and URL of both. Don't make us guess which one you're using!

And of course, if you have any questions, we're just an email away:


That's it! Please see the Welcome entry for details on all this rules stuff. As we like to say around here, go be photographers!

Karen and Carly

Please Welcome Our New Round Robin Team Member: Steven!

Yes, it's true, as hinted to in the "Summer Gardens," entry in this blog, we have some wonderful news to share. The Round Robin Challenges has a new team member, Steven, the talented photographer and author of the blog, "(sometimes)photoblog." Steven will be joining us officially with the announcement of the Round Robin Challenge scheduled for August 24th, for the September 9th challenge. As our team member, Steven will take turns with Karen and myself in handling the responsibilities of running this project, such as writing the announcement entries, and being here to answer any questions or concerns you might have. Karen and I are excited to have Steven join us. It will be good to have a man's input regarding the challenges, and how things might run even more smoothly in the future. There may be some changes and improvements coming up, so be sure to review the "Welcome Entry & Rules Of Play" from time to time to stay up to date!

So now, without further delay, Karen and I want to say... WELCOME STEVEN! :)

Carly and Karen
