Challenge Your Camera: A positive start to 2021

Photography is one of those activities we can all have fun with and blog about, at home, in the garden, walking the streets, in the countryside, in a museum or gallery ….. the opportunities are endless. You can be a wizard or a novice with a camera or a smartphone, or a crafty manipulator with Photoshop, or Lightroom or Snapseed. It really doesn’t matter how you create your image because in the end it is a work of art, a creation, a memory, and possibly a source of inspiration to others. Blogging your images is easy too, few words needed, let the picture tell the story. And, very importantly in these strange times, it can give us a distraction, a positive focus, connect us with others, and build a community via our blogs. So why not join in, start snapping and sharing with me.

Each week I am selecting a single theme to point my camera at or display a few photos from my collection as a way to brighten up the week as we enter a new year which we all hope will be brighter than the last. If you would like to join me in #challengeyourcamera then here’s what to do:

1. Follow me to discover the weekly theme I have chosen.
2. Select a few photos related to the week’s theme
3. Post your own photos that week, any day you like.
4. Include a caption with each photo so we know what/where it is
5. Include a ping back/link to my blog in your post so that I am notified, can follow you back and can appreciate and comment on your choices.
6. Include the tag #challengeyourcamera

1. I will follow you back
2. I will encourage other posters to follow you
3. I will list each blogger in my weekly post

Theme #1 Architecture

Today is the first challenge theme, #1Architecture so give it a go, challenge your camera with different angles, lighting, time of day etc etc. Here’s my own first offerings on the architecture theme:

The Hanseatic Museum, Bergen, Norway.
Madrid Airport.

  2. Hello there! We are Marlena and Kurt, it is a pleasure to meet you. We are interested in engaging and connecting with fellow bloggers! When we saw the theme “Architecture” we thought of just the post, our Granada, Nicaragua post. It it a city of churches and lined with very neat and unique architecture. We have followed you and will include our link here. Please let us know if we have done everything accurately. Thanks for the challenge!

    • Hello Ali, thank you, give it a go! I used to write lots about our travels around the world but the past 12 months have been …… not so good! So my focus shifted to wine and now photography so I hope you will join in. It will be very different each week ….. I promise 😂🤞👍


      • Hi Dr B ..well as you can see by the name of my blog I also used to write about my travels, but that well has run dry, so a new challenge will be welcome. I’ll see if I have anything that hasn’t already been used!
