This weeks theme for my #challengeyourcamera post is another guest theme of SPORT and supplied by Sheree of View From The Back. Sheree is one of my long time followers, and has a real enthusiasm for challenges, especially ones involving photography. When she suggested this theme I was a bit concerned that people wouldn’t be able to go outdoors or find anything sporting to photograph, but here are Sheree’s words to help; “Sport doesn’t have to be pro. It can be grandchildren having a kickabout in the garden, dogs having fun, a sports stadium or museum, spectators, someone sporting something……….”
For my own offering I’ve had to scour my archives because there just isn’t anything sporting going on anywhere in my village at present, it’s a bit ghostly on my morning walks and one of these days I expect to see tumbleweed blowing down the street! My choices are a mixture of images, one is of a newspaper cutting, one is a screenshot of a special moment in the event on live tv, a couple are of myself still engaged in my sport when I was 60, and one of my daughter a couple of years back. I hope you can all find something to give it a go.
This has been a record week for posters to my weekly challenge, thank you so much everyone, the Roll of Honour list is expanding rapidly and I hope you all see this as a list of photographers we can all learn something from. As a community we should all be supporting each other by “following” which it makes commenting on each other’s blogs so much easier without filling in an email form each time. I also hope you’ve noticed that occasionally I select a follower to suggest a “guest challenge”, today it’s Sheree from View From The Back, and next week there’s another from Philosophy Through Photography. Both are great photographers who post and comment regularly so I encourage you to take a look at their blogs and follow from their links below.
