Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Inspiration

Inspiration

As it is the start of a brand new Photography Challenge –
Friendly Friday , the one that I am co-hosting with Snow, from
TheSnowMeltsSomewhere, I felt compelled and indeed, wished, to join in!

Here is my photo depicting Inspiration; the prompt for this week.

It was hard to choose a photo for the theme Inspiration, but I feel that this work by Jasmine Kay Uy for her University of Texas at Austin Department of Art and Art History most inspiring.

How clever are the words? I also love the different interpretations and that one side is hidden from the other given two totally different meanings, depending on one’s orientation and perspective! Sort of like life can be, sometimes?

Instructions on Joining Friendly Friday

Friendly Friday will be posting each Friday – alternately between Snow’s blog TheSnowMeltsSomewhere and my blog Something to Ponder About

Each Friday, we’ll post a prompt and invite you to leave your response in the comments section.

You write a post, publish a photo and leave a hyperlink or pingback in the comments section directing us to your Friendly Friday blog post.

How we will find your post and how to post a linkback or pingback

If you are not sure what a hyperlink, link back or pingback is, it is how we find your blog post in the world wide web.

Just highlight, right click and “copy” the url of your PUBLISHED blog post [see below] that you want to link to, and then paste this along with your comment, on Amanda’s or Snow’s Friendly Friday Blog post, depending on who is hosting the challenge that week, in the same way you would post a normal comment to their post.

A url is the computer’s blog post address that you find at the top of the blog post itself. It should look something like this format but with your blog and post name inserted.

https://xxxx [blogname]/2019/01/06/xxx[name of blog post]/

Tags

If you are really keen it would be fantastic to include in your post a Friendly Friday tag.

To do so, add the words Friendly Friday to the tags in your publishing settings on the side bar, before you hit ‘publish’. You might even want to add a hyperlink or link back to the host blogger’s blog – here is how to do that:

Firstly, Highlight, and right click the url for the host blog – https://forestwoodfolkart.wordpress.com https://forestwoodfolkart.wordpress.com – for Amanda’s blog

or https://thesnowmeltssomewhere.wordpress.com – for Snow’s blog

Secondly, paste this url in the draft post, by clicking on the chain link icon in your editor, (usually next to BOLD and Italic icons). A text box will pop up – and this is when you right click, paste or ctrl V. Press Enter and your link is then automated. if it works the text colour will change! Any problems, just ask for help!

Oh and if you happen to paste the wrong link, by mistake, just highlight and click the chain link icon again in your editor and the link disappears! Easy.

Good luck and Have a Happy Week. Do stop by for my first Friendly Friday Post and a new theme – this Friday 8pm [ Australian time]

      1. No, its the first time I heard it. I have tried to live to that doctrine, but have not worked in an area I like for a long time, but I have to feed my kids! Thanks for sharing though. We all need o look at ourselves and ask questions.

      2. Sorry to hear that! The reality is we all have to pay bills, isn’t it? Some of the young generation are still learning. Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts.

    1. Thanks Snow! It is clever!! Do you also think, as I do, that good art is one that puzzles and surprises you?
      One of my readers feared joining in with the challenge, because she didn’t understand the pingbacks. There must be others for whom that also applies. I can also link back to theae instructions later if need be for someone else.

      1. Exactly (linking back later – I might refer to these if needed, too!)
        Good art, that’s a good question. I’m not sure I like all puzzling art, like very abstract and modern stuff… I like photo art a lot and drawings/watercolors that are pretty and represent something… I guess I’m not a “statement” art type of person! But the one in this photo of yours was genius! 🙂
