Prompts and Challenges

This was a post that I had published the same day last year. I thought why not post it again. There have been some changes, like Sue’s weekly word challenge hasn’t been active for a while, Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge is on a break, Steve’s musicology has changed a bit but otherwise things are still on, I guess 🙂
There are a couple more which I am currently participating or that I know of. They are
c) Julie’s Travel Photo of the week (this is on a break I guess for now)
If you are looking for challenges, you can check these out and join the fun. Happy Blogging 🙂

I did have a list of the Photography related Challenges listed down so that when I feel like it I can participate. But didn’t think that posting it might actually help anyone because I am as much a newbie to this as are the others. But then when Ger asked me for the list yesterday I thought, irrespective of whether others already knew about it or not, it may help someone if I did publish them. So here is a list of prompts/challenges which I know of, even though I take part only in two photography challenges per week (as much as my work can let me do it) and two writing prompts (just for fun)

Photography:
Cee has a couple of photography challenges. They are Odd Ball Challenge, B & W Challenge, Fun Foto Challenge and Which Way Challenge. You can check them out on her site. There are separate menu links for the same.
If you like playing with your photographs and doing editing and stuff like that, then Robyn’s One Four Challenge might be interesting.
You might like Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge, if you like taking photos of your pet(s).
Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness is a good one, if you like playing with your photographs, be it editing, or if you frequently like taking or editing your photographs in monochrome.

Sue does her weekly word based photography challenge, which is almost similar to Daily Posts’s Weekly Photography Challenge.


 

Writing:

If you wanna take part in some writing Challenges or prompts, you should check out Linda’s SoCS, hosted every Saturday (you will get your prompt by Friday evening) and JustJoJan, for the month of January only. ( I am gonna tag this post for the prompt )
If you like writing short fiction based on a photograph, then you can check out Al’s Sunday Photo Fiction. A similar prompt is done by RocNaNo using their Wordless Wednesday photographs.
You can also share your world with Cee’s Share Your World weekly questions.

Music:
The only one Music related prompt that I take part and I currently know of is Steve’s Cosmic Musicology. Its fun and I am yet to do my post for this week’s questions. If you listen to music and have a good collection of songs in your playlist, you might wanna give this a try.

And there is a whole lot more and you can find them here.
For people who like literature, you might wanna check out this site called Interesting Literature.
Hope you find some which might interest you and if you know of any other cool prompts, please do let me know.
Just one tip: Make sure you ‘tag’ your posts with the corresponding prompts as is given in their descriptions and to add the correct pingback so that it will be easily visible to others too.
Happy Blogging & Sharing.

WPC: Blur

I took this photograph using my digital camera day before yesterday morning. Even though it came out a little blurred, (especially if you look at the leaves) I kind of liked it because it sort of softened the features of the rose. So, using this for this week’s photography challenge.IMG_3413

WPC: Depth

For this week’s photography challenge, Depth, here is a picture which shows the depth of field in a photograph as well as the depth of the ravine (even though it is sort of on the side of the picture) from a view point in Matheran.

Let me take a Selfie!

Took this in the resort, where we stayed for the recent holiday, on the reflection of the glass window of the restaurant where I was roaming around looking for a good view of the place. I turned around and saw myself in the reflection and it looked as if I was covered with leaves and I liked how it looked a little like a painting, with the whole picture naturally framed by the window and the mountains in the background. It wasn’t perfect because of the way the sunlight was falling at a location where I had to go close to the beam but still I sort of liked the feel of the picture 🙂 Doesn’t it look like I am expressing myself here by being a part of the nature ?

WPC: Shadowed

For this week’s photography challenge, Shadowed, I am going with already published images using the literal meaning of shadow. I love playing with lights and its effects and each of these are a result of that.
