Round Robin Challenge: Eat Your Vegetables!

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

Are you all ready to EAT YOUR VEGETABLES? Tee Hee. I hope so, because that is the subject of our next Round Robin Challenge! And that challenge will take place on Saturday, February 9th. Jill, one of our newest members,who authors the blog, "Letting Crazy Take A Spin" recently submitted the idea, and here is what she says...

"Anything veggie related. Veggies can be so interesting."

So, does that mean you should take a photo of yourself eating veggies? No, of course not. But you could photograph one of your very favorite vegetables to have with dinner. Or maybe a lot of vegetables on display, like at the grocery store or market stand. How about your favorite salad? Sure, why not? As long as it is veggie related you will be on track. Even if you HATE vegetables, you can take a picture of the one you hate the most, and then tell us why. LOL. Personally, I love my veggies, and I can think of a thousand different ways this challenge can be done. But first, every once in a while it's a good idea to review the rules a bit, so lets do that now.

**When you sign-up to play please do so in the following format...

Your Name (First or online handle)
Your Blog/Journal Name
Your Complete URL (Blog/Journal Address)



**Robins, PLEASE remember to give us your full information, even if you have played with us before. We need your information in order to be able to link to you on the day of the challenge. It makes a lot of work for us on the day before the challenge, and the day of the challenge, if we have to track you down. We all have time constraints, so let's be thoughtful of others by observing the rules. :)

**Make sure all the photos you post, are photos you have taken yourself. No postcards or borrows, we want to see your photography. Once in a while it is ok to share a friend's photo, if you have permission from whoever you are borrowing from, but we really want your entries to come from your own personal creativity! :)

**We recommend that you post your entry on the day of the challenge, to have the best chance of having your entry been seen, but if you can't make it the day of the challenge, you are not late. You have up to one week after each challenge is played before it is closed to new entries.

**DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRIES BEFORE THE CHALLENGE DATE! That one is self explanatory. Right? :)

**You are allowed to use the Round Robin (Bird) graphics, found on the sidebar, and the completed Linking List, in each challenge entry, for the purposes of linking to the challenges. All other graphics are off limits, including the small photos used in each challenge, and the text accompanying it, which we use an example of what the challenge topic will be.

We are working on a FAQ page for you to get a quick review, it will be coming soon. Feel free to send us a question any time, and we will be happy to send you a quick reply. Steven is on a temporary hiatus, but you can still email Karen or myself . Our email addresses can also be found on the sidebar.

Ok, that's it. Go grab your cameras, go grab your Carrots, Peas, Lettuce, Cabbage, Brussels sprouts, Corn, or another veggie, and GO BE PHOTOGRAPHERS! Be sure to meet back here on Saturday, February 9th, ready to show off our creativity. See Ya Then! :)

Round Robin Challenge: Landmarks

Hi, Robins! Thanks for all the great entries for our "Railroads" challenge. Now it's time to announce the next one. The Challenge topic for Saturday, January 26th is

This Challenge Is Now Closed. Thank You For Playing!!!

Our own Carly of the blog Ellipsis suggested this back in November. She explains it thus:

Again, let's take an opportunity to show off our hometowns. I live in the Bay Area, so I have no real shortage of recognizable landmarks, so what I would do is try to show those landmarks in an interesting lighting circumstance, such as a sunset, or under special lighting conditions. But I want to see other places, and the landmarks that make those places so special. A beautifully designed building, an incredible bridge, or a monument of some sort, or maybe even an unusual road sign. It's all good!

So. How about where you live? Is there an historic building or a famous statue that you'd like to photograph? A 200-year-old tree in the center of town? The world's oldest McDonald's? A funny sign? A bridge shaped like a diamondback rattlesnake? Whatever it is, RSVP in the comments below, go take your photos, and meet us all back here and in your very own blog on the posting date of Saturday, January 26th. You can post up to six days later if you need to, but please don't post your entry early. Your RSVP comment, as always, should be in this format:

I'll be there, with (liberty) bells on!

Poor Richard's Almanack

Questions? Steven's taking a little break, but feel free to email Carly and Karen:
