Round Robin Challenge: Long Ago, Far Away

Hi, Robins! Our next topic is inspired by Martha, whose Flashback Friday meme is all about scanning and posting old photos. The Round Robin Photo Challenge for Saturday, January 26th is


Long Ago, Far Away

Here is your chance to get all nostalgic, photographically! Maybe it's a photo you took with your first, cheap camera when you were 12 years old. Maybe it's a photo you just took of a person, place or thing from your childhood. Maybe it's something from longer ago or farther away than that: a castle or cathedral you photographed on a trip overseas, a dinosaur skeleton, or a distant constellation of stars, the light from which has taken years to reach us. If it was long ago or far away or both, it counts! All I ask is that it be a photo you took yourself, whether it was 40 years ago or five minutes ago.

You know the drill:

1. Grab your camera or go through your files for one or more photographs you took of something from long ago or far away.

2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photo(s).

3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, Saturday, January 26th, post the results on any blog, social media site or online photo album. Don't forget to link back to here in your entry, so your readers can check out the other Robins' contributions.

4. Please visit the other Robins' entries, and comment if so moved. The list of entries will be posted at the bottom of this entry starting around midnight MST on the Challenge date, and updated through the day.

That's all there is to it! Have fun, and go be photographers!

Karen
