Snow and I co-host a Photo Challenge, Called Friendly Friday, alternately each Friday (Saturday for some time zones). Although I have linked the response to this week’s prompt of a photo walk, to an earlier walk I took through the Gyoen National Park in Shinjuku, Japan, this prompt from Snow was one I couldn’t resist joining in with again.
Hosts are allowed to join their own challenges, aren’t they?
Japanese know their horticulture and how to make it a work of art. The trees perfectly frame the pond and the manicured trees int eh distance. In a week or so, these trees would turn brilliant red. Oh how I would love have seen that.
A fellow Aussie blogger liked my comparison of these trees to Lord of the Rings.
Sometimes they help us discover something new, sometimes they are curiosities to us, or something to laugh at, occasionally they might even be serendipitous.
Still other times, mistakes might be a real pain.
But with every mistake, we undoubtedly learn something previously unknown.
This week on Friendly Friday Photography Challenge, I am asking you to create a post on the theme of:
Write as much or as little as you like to accompany the photo/s you choose to post.
The Friendly Friday prompt, this week, is “Mistakes.”
There are two mistakes in the above photo.
Mistake #1 – shows a quirk of mobile photography – I am unsure how I managed this photo, given it was taken with my smartphone, but I think it looks kinda cool. It reminds me of The Day of the Triffids, War of the Worlds, or a sci-fi novel.
Can you guess what the mistake actually is?
Mistake #2: Can you see another mistake?
I feel sure this mistake would not amuse local police.
Here is another kind of mistake:
Create a post sharing your interpretation of the weekly prompt – Mistakes.
Write and publish a post, tagging the postFriendly Friday, and adding a url link back to thisFriendly Friday post.
Include the Friendly Friday logo if you wish
Post a link to your Mistake post, in the comments here, so we can easily find you.
Please note there are no deadlines for participating
Browse the other participants’ posts using the links in the comments section, to see how they’ve interpreted the weekly prompt. It can be quite interesting.
Is your photographic ‘Self’ lamenting the demise of the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge? Are you perhaps looking to share your creativity and photographic skills with other bloggers?” Itching to get snapping great shots again?
Friendly Friday Photo Challenge
Starting January 11th, Something to Ponder About will be hosting a new Weekly Photo Challenge, with photo and travel blogger, Snow, from the blog: The Snow Melts Somewhere.
The new Photo challenge is going to be about community and interacting with other bloggers, sharing everyday things from our world. You don’t need to be a pro to participate, either. Mobile, Point and shoot or SLR photography formats are all perfectly acceptable. Your blog doesn’t even have to be about photography, in order to participate.
Snow will kick off the challenge with the first prompt, on her blog, on Friday, January 11th, and then Something to Ponder About, a.k.a me, Amanda, will post a prompt on alternate Fridays, thereafter.
Why Fridays? Because we have decide to call the challenge: ‘Friendly Friday!’ Woo hoo!
How to Join the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge
We’ll come up with a suggested theme each Friday, and post a photo that we think fits. After that, you post photographs based on your own interpretation of the theme, and publish them in a new Blog post.
Write as little or as much, as you wish, to accompany your photos.
To make it easy for the host bloggers and others to find you, title your post “Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)”
Post a comment at the Host’s Friendly Friday blog post that includes the link to your Friendly Friday blog post, the one that you published on your blog. [ N.B. please ensure it is a link to the actual post, not just a link to your blog itself.
That’s it. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Let’s have some fun!
Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I encourage you to leave a comment if you think you might know where this week’s mystery photograph, is located, or what it is. If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog the following week when the answer will be revealed. Guest submissions are very welcome.
Drop me an email if you would like to submit a photography to Monday Mystery Photo.
Where would you find the following structures?
Last week we were in Norway at the cruise port in Andalsnes, where the giant Troll awaits tourists exploring the Romsdalfjord and heralds the nearby Trollstigen and Trollvegen.
Last week we were in Norway at the cruise ship port in Andalsnes, on the beautiful Romsdalfjord. It is here that the Giant Troll greets tourists who make their way to his nearby home in Trollvegen or climb the hairpin bends of Trollstigen.
There were many correct guesses last week. Well done, guys. Here they are:
