Round Robin Challenge: Big Wheels, Little Wheels

Hi, Robins! Our next Challenge was suggested by our friend Carly back in 2008. The topic for Saturday, May 7th is

Big Wheels, Little Wheels

Carly wrote:
Take a photo of a wheel. A big wheel like on a truck, or a little wheel as on a child's toy. It can also me a wheel of cheese. An antique sewing machine wheel, or even a whirlytwirly.

This should be wheely, wheely fun! (Sorry.)

The usual guidelines apply:

1. DO RSVP in the comments below with your name or handle, blog name and blog URL, thus:
My Wheels are Turnin'!

Proud Mary
Keep on Turnin'

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. I, for one, have a bad habit of forgetting to look again once the weekend's over.

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, February 26th!

In the meantime, don't forget this other meme:

Round Robin Challenge: Springtime Celebrations

Hi, Robins! The next Challenge takes place the day before Easter, one of many religious and secular celebrations that take place around this time of year. The topic for Saturday, April 23 is:

Springtime Celebrations

I'll be celebrating Holy Week on that day, specifically Holy Saturday, and also the first episode of the new season of Doctor Who. You may be celebrating Passover instead. This time of year you may also be enjoying a charity walk, an annual flower or boat or home show, or some other local event. Or you could simply celebrating the change of seasons with a picnic or a walk in the woods.

There are also a bewildering number of obscure and not-so-obscure celebrations in April, from International Guitar Month to National Karaoke Week, from International Juggler's Day to World Penguin Day! It's true! Check out the list on this page; it's full of fun celebrations. Pick one that appeals to you, whether it's Maundy Thursday or World Laboratory Day, photograph something that relates to it, and get ready to post your pictures on Saturday, April 23rd.

You know how this works, right?

1. RSVP below.
2. Take your pictures.
3. Wait until April 23rd to post your entry. (Most blogging platforms let you schedule an entry to post at a later date or time.)
4. Include a link back here in your entry.
5. Visit other people's entries. That's half the fun!

That's it for now. Go be photographers!
