Round Robin Challenge: I've Always Wanted To Photograph...

Hi, Robins! for our second Challenge of 2011, let's dip into the topic pool for one of Steven's "open" topics. The Round Robin Challenge for Saturday, January 15th is

I've Always Wanted To Photograph...

Steven (former cohost of this meme and ace photographer of the late, lamented (sometimes)photoblog) described the topic this way:

Show us a photo you always wanted to take. Open theme, have fun.
Have you been meaning to take your camera to the park, the mountains, the lake, the zoo or the museum, but just haven't gotten around to it? Is there a particular tree, building or person you'd like to photograph, but the opportunity never arose? What about that photographic challenge you've been meaning to tackle - trick photography, odd angles, or even your first decent photo of the moon? Here is your chance to go after that photo you've been meaning to take, but never did.

Oh, and one more thing: Steven used to accompany his "open" themes with a call for new Round Robin topics as suggested by YOU! The topic pool is running low, and consists mostly of topics from people who haven't played in a while. So as part of your entry, tell us briefly what it is you've been wanting to photograph, and what topics you would like to see in a future Challenge. Your suggestions will refill our topic pool so we can try out some brand new Challenges this year. Sound good? All right, then! Just remember, the usual guidelines apply:

1. DO RSVP in the comments below with your name or handle, blog name and blog URL, thus:

I'll finally get around to that photograph!

Black and White Mastery

2. DO NOT post BEFORE the Challenge date. If you need to set it up beforehand, most blogging platforms will let you schedule an entry to post on a certain date and time. But yes, you MAY POST up to 6 DAYS AFTER the date if you forget or something comes up that delays your entry. That said, you will get more visitors to your entry if you post on the Challenge date.

3. DO mention the Round Robin and link back to this blog. (If there's no link or mention, how is that a Round Robin entry?) Including a linking list to the other entries is encouraged but not mandatory. Also, it's helpful to stop by here and leave another comment with your specific link once your entry is posted.

That's it - well, the short version, anyway! If you need further guidelines, please check out our Welcome and Rules of Play entry, or drop me an email at mavarin2 (at) Now, go be photographers! I look forward to seeing everyone's entries on Saturday, January 15th!

A quick note - my dad is in town for the first time in five years, and on top of that I'm working at both churches later this morning. My updating is likely to be spotty, and I may not make the rounds until Monday. Please help me out by leaving a comment here once you've posted. Thanks!

Day One

Gattina said...

The photos I always wanted to take, were impossible to take, so that's why I haven't taken them.
This is a dilemma !
but I participate, I'll find something

Sarah Walton said...

Great! got me off my butt and down to the DIFC to copy a better photographer than me. Thanks for the inspiration!

I'm in! I want to take better night photos, so hopefully, I'll get a good one.
