Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Blue

Each fortnight, I do try to come up with a topic for the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge that is fairly original, given that there are many challenges and word prompts published on WordPress. Therefore, checking the reader for similar entries is a must, before I hit that publish button.

The very blue fjord in Utne

I had a post almost ready to go on Photo Edits, but found similar topics in the reader in recent months, so that topic will have to keep for a later time. If you have photos in mind for that topic, set them aside for later!

Yesterday was “R U Okay? day in Australia.

Yesterday marked an important time to think about and check in with your colleagues, family or friends, who may be feeling a little ‘blue‘ and to let them know you are there for them, if they wish to talk about something that is bothering them.

Strangely enough, Blue is also a favourite colour of mine. So today’s prompt is:


Friendly Friday Photo Theme – ‘Blue

You are invited to join the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge. Full Instructions below.

Interpret the word, ‘Blue,’ however you like and make a Friendly Friday post.

You are limited only by your imagination. What shade of blue do you prefer?

Here is a few different hues of ‘Blue’:

The topic this week highlights the colour that signifies that feeling of loneliness, depression or anxiety and I hope everyone feels that they can ask their friend, neighbour or colleague, ” How have you been?” “Everything going okay?”

Where am I

Let’s share that support and start conversations around the world on Friendly Friday. In some cultures, asking how someone is going, is considered intrusive, so awareness of this is important too. The person’s body language will be a clear signal and an important clue, as to how they are feeling about your question.

    • Thank you, Cath. That is such an iconic bridge and a great choice for the challenge. I had another blogger post a photo of that same bridge for an older challenge of a mystery photo I used to host here.

    • Thanks, Phyllis.
      Yes, great idea to add your comment with the url link! The pingbacks can be unpredictable, to say the least. Thanks for commenting about my first photo. It is one of me “starred” photos!
      Your photo is an excellent submission for the wide ‘blue’ yonder!! Where did you snap that one?

      • Where did I snap it? I think next to the Mississippi River, which isn’t saying much since it is 2,348 miles long.
        I was on a bridge over some railroad tracks taking pictures of passing train when I looked up.
        I remember thinking about design and purposely placed the plane at an angle.
        And there you have it. ;0)

  22. I think its really cool how you do a cool challenge every week, it really gives you a good topic to talk about. In the last ocean photo I think its really cool that you where able to get a photo of the tide mid air. In your first photo its really cool how you where able to get that high to get the a photo of all the tides crashing in at once.
