Round Robin Challenge: By The Water

Hi Robins :) NOW CLOSED!

Save the date! Our next challenge will take place on Saturday, July 31st! What will our challenge be, you ask? Glad you asked. This time around the challenge will be "BY THE WATER." Sound good? Any interpretation is fine, as are archived photos, but you know, I love seeing you grab new shots. So, go out there and find some bottled WATER. A WATERing Hole. A Glass of WATER. WATER on the beach. It's all good. :)

But Carly, how do we play this challenge?

Glad you asked! Here are some general guidelines for how we play the Round Robin Challenges.

1. PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY PRIOR TO THE CHALLENGE DATE. In this case, the date would be Saturday, July 31st, 2010.

2. Please remember R.S.V.P. your intention to play by providing us with your full information each time you play, using the following format...

Your Name
The Name of your Blog
The full address of where your entry can be found



3. It's a good idea to comeback here on the day of the challenge and let us know you have posted. It helps us out a lot and keeps things moving along smoothly.

4. If you are new to the challenges, please let us know so we can give you a proper welcome!

5. You can post your entry at any time after midnight on the day of the challenge, and for up to one week after we play, but posting on the day of the challenge guarantees you the most visitors.

If you have any questions on how to play, or how to leave us your intention to play, feel free to email us. You can find our contact information on the sidebar!

Okay, that's it. Go have fun. Go be photographers. See you back here on Saturday, July 31st!

Round Robin: "Guess What This Is!"

Hi, Robins! The next topic was suggested by Lisa of Lisa's Chaos back in May 2008. The topic for Saturday, July 17th is: NOW CLOSED!

Guess What This Is!

Lisa advises that it works best with macro photography, where you can zoom in close enough that we see shapes and textures, but not the whole thing. But if you have something so unusual that people would be hard pressed to identify it at all, by all means photograph it!

Let's make a game of this, as John Scalzi did with a few of his Monday Photo Shoots back in the day. Don't tell us what your mysterious something is when you first post your entry. Let people guess in comments, and then tell them when they guess right! Sound like fun? Good! Just remember our usual guidelines:

1. Do RSVP your full info in the comments below, including name, blog name and blog URL, thus:

I guess I'll be playing!

Denim Blues

2. Do NOT post before the Challenge date, Saturday, July 17th. Remember, most blog platforms let you write an entry in advance, and schedule it to post at the date and time you want.

3. Do mention Round Robin in your entry, including a link back to this blog.

That's it for now. Go be photographers!
