Round Robin Challenge: Shadowland

Hello Robins :) This challenge is now closed. Thank you for playing. :)

And welcome to our next photographic adventure. And what an adventure it will be! Vicki, author of the blog, "Maraca" has submitted the topic "Shadowland" to intrigue and inspire us. With Halloween coming up, at the end of the month, there should be plenty of shadowy opportunities available. Her vision for the challenge is as follows...



October. Darkness reigns and spirits gather. Gone are the sunlit days of summer, and the heart turns strange and melancholy. Welcome to Shadowland.

The theme is open-ended, so go with whatever your imagination can conjure. Photograph actual shadows, perhaps; capture the mood in a striking portrait or landscape, or even - if you dare- catch a ghost. This would be a great time to try working in black and white or to experiment with editing and effects. After all, it's Shadowland. Anything could happen."

-Vicki

Okay Robins, grab your cameras, and your courage, and let your imaginations run wild. Photograph your favorite shadowy phenomenon, or your favorite ghostly presence. Look deep into those dark corners and crevices of the attic or basement, for things that go bump in the night or maybe spin a perfect web. Try something different, and do some night photography, or if the nighttime is not your favorite time, then find those shadows, ghosts, and entities in the daylight hours. It's all good! The date of this challenge will be Saturday, October 20th. There are just a few rules to follow...

1. DO NOT post your entry prior to the challenge date.

2. Please sign-up prior to the challenge date, by using the following format...

Feeling inspired? Great! Get your creative on, GO BE PHOTOGRAPHERS, and then comeback here on October 20th, ready to show off your imagination. And if you have an idea for an upcoming Round Robin Challenge, email your submissions to Karen, Steven or myself. Be sure to put "Round Robin Challenge Submission" in the subject line of your email. Remember Robins, we can't do it without you, so we are looking forward to hearing from you! :)

See you October 20th! Bwahahahahahahah!
