Round Robin Challenge: Blinded By the Light

Hi, Robins! The next topic was suggested by Vicki of the blog Maraca back in 2008. The topic for Saturday, February 27th is


Blinded By The Light

"Photograph anything brilliant and bright."



Now, don't go looking directly at the sun or anything, but do let your camera capture an abundance of light or brightness in some interesting way. Will you photograph natural or artificial light? You can even interpret the words metaphorically, just in case you get a chance to photograph a genius!

Whatever you do, though, please follow our usual guidelines:


1. DO RSVP in the comments with your name or handle, the name of your blog and the blog's full URL, thus:

Yes, I'll see the light!

Icarus
Fire of the Sun
http://ouchthatisreallyhot.blogspot.com

Please include these details EVERY time you play. It helps us to compile the Linking List, and it cuts down on errors. People frequently change blogs, so don't expect us to assume it's the same blog as last time. Also, please proofread the URL before posting the comment. We post the link you give us, so a typo makes it hard for anyone to reach your blog! Also RSVP before the Challenge date if at all possible, so we have it for the list as the Challenge date begins.

It's also helpful if you leave another comment after you've posted, to let us know your entry is up.

2. DO NOT post your entry before the Challenge date. The idea is for everyone to post on that date (or if necessary, up to six days thereafter), so that readers can conveniently visit all the entries. We don't want to scroll down to something you did two weeks ago.

3. DO make sure the entry is relevant to the Challenge. Occasionally someone leaves a link to something they posted that has little or nothing to do with the topic. At minimum your entry should mention the Round Robin Photo Challenges and the current topic. Otherwise, it's not really a Round Robin entry, is it? A link back to this blog is strongly encouraged, so that people can find every one else's entries and not just yours. A Linking List of participants is posted here around midnight as the Challenge date begins, and is updated over the next day or two. If you want to include this in your entry too, that would be most helpful.

A full set of guidelines is posted here. Please check it out if you are new to the Robins or have any questions. You can also email us with questions, concerns or future topic ideas. Our email addresses are on the sidebar.

Got it? Good! See you in two weeks! I'll be checking in from another planet (Gallifrey!), but I'll be there, through the miracle of $10 a day hotel internet hookups!

My apologies to Mary, Sandy and anyone else I may have confused about the date for this Challenge. The correct date is Saturday the 27th. I've corrected the entry. Thanks for catching my error before it has time to do any more damage!

Hi Carly, it is a handmade candle. They made, carve the candle right in front of you. It is really amazing how they do it. Thanks for the visit.
