Round Robin Challenge: In the Park

Hi, Robins! I had an idea for a Challenge today, so let's just go with that. The topic for Saturday, June 4th is

In the Park

Photograph a scene in a park, preferably with people enjoying the place. Your venue can be the little park down the street, a big city park, Yellowstone Park or anything in between. A public garden or plaza also counts, an amusement or theme park, a zoological park, or even a car park! Just remember the usual guidelines:

1. DO RSVP in the comments below, preferably before the Challenge date, Thus:

I'll post pretty pixelated pictures of my Park!
A Sunday Afternoon
2. DO not post before the date, but you can post it a day or two late if necessary. On the date is best!

3. DO link back here, so people can check out the other entries as well!

That's it! Go be photographers, and we'll check out your work on Saturday, June 4th!

Round Robin Challenge: Graffiti

Hi, Robins! The next Challenge was suggested back in 2009 by Gattina of Keyhole Pictures. The topic for Saturday, May 21st is


Graffiti is generally illegal, and it can be a terrible eyesore, ruining the look of buildings, vehicles and street signs. But some of it is rather attractive, and sometimes it's even profound. (Ask Carly about that one.) So for our next Challenge, photograph some bit of graffiti where you are: beautiful or ugly, profane or inspiring. You know how this works, right?

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

I wall be there!

Painting on the Ceiling

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, May 21st!

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