Round Robin Challenge: Politics

Hi, Robins! Our next Round Robin Photo Challenge is scheduled for Saturday, September 5th. It's one of Carly's topic suggestions:


Here is Carly's original description of the topic:

Whether we like it or not, at least a little politics is a part of all of our lives. City government, state and federal it affects us all. With the upcoming elections, there will be a lot of campaign signs, and political statements being made. Photograph something that says "Politics" to you. Have some fun with it. Buttons, yard signs, a candidate's personal appearance in your town, a protest, a political bumper sticker, anything to do with politics that strikes your fancy.

Here in the U.S. we're a few months away from an off-year election day, but there's a lot of political stuff going on right now in the fight over health care reform. Maybe a mayor is fighting for re-election, or someone is collecting signatures for medical marijuana. Heck, even the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace is at least vaguely political. City Hall, a prime minister's official residence, a school board meeting or a vintage I Like Ike button can all be considered political. So grab your camera and photograph the seats of government, the signs, the paraphernalia, the politicians or the people!

Remember all the usual stuff:

  • Do NOT post before the Challenge Date, Saturday, September 5th!
  • DO RSVP in the comments below, thus:
I elect to play!

Log Cabin Tales
  • DO include a link back here. If you like you can also include our Linking List to other Robins' blogs, which will be posted here around midnight as the posting date begins.
  • DO remember the name of this meme. It's ROUND Robin Challenges, not Red Robin!

That's it for now, folks! Go be photographers! And don't forget these other memes:

The Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot - hosted by Carly every Monday
The Weekend Assignment - hosted by Karen every Friday.

See you soon!

Round Robin Challenge: Birds

Hi Robins :)


Save the date! Our next challenge will take place on Saturday, August 22nd, 2009! It comes to us by way of the challenge pool and was suggested by Robinella, author of Robinella's Blog.

From birds in the wild, to the canary you keep in a cage on your desk, it's all good, and I can't wait to see it, but first, lets go over a few details about how we play this meme...

1. If this is your first time playing... WELCOME! Please take a moment to read over the WELCOME ENTRY AND RULES OF PLAY. It can be found on the sidebar.

2. If you decide to join us, please R.S.V.P. in the following manner...


We need your information EACH time you play a challenge. Please folks, it is very helpful if you could provide your information as requested.

3. DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY PRIOR TO THE CHALLENGE DATE! We won't be linking to you until the day of the challenge, therefore it does no good to jump ahead of everyone else. As my pal Steven says, "there's no need to hurry, this isn't a race."

Ok, it's as simple as that! If you are still unsure how to R.S.V.P, just follow my example either on this page or in the comment thread. If you have any questions, feel free to send an email to either Karen or myself, our contact information is on the sidebar.

See you Saturday, 08/22/09!
