Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers

I was thinking about this challenge and wondering how I was going to fulfil it this week seeing as I’m mainly a landscape and wildlife photographer. Of course these themes are always open to interpretation and I pride myself in being able to make any photograph fit a WordPress theme. Of course it might take a bit of lateral thinking on your part.


This one is easy, you can have two people, break it down a bit more and you can have 1 man and 1 boy, well I think it’s a boy but with hair like that who knows. Or how about 12 wind turbines, count them they are there. Break it down, each turbine has 3 blades, so that’s 36 in total. See this numbers game is easy and like I said, I can make any photograph fit the theme.

Mind the Steps

I can see 4 steps, 4 els, 4 esses, 6 ayes, and a few other things but whose counting. Oh! By the way this photograph was stolen last week and used in a Failbook post. Now I’m a generous sort of guy but you can’t use my photographs for commercial purposes without paying me mucho dinero so  had to insist that they take it down.

Right then, numbers here we go……Q8 kicking up a sandstorm.


911 – reminds me of the time I was in Charleston SC. The hotel access code  for direct dialling was 9, we had a number for cheaper international calls that went something like this (0)11 555 4444. Of course I kept dropping the 0, you can guess the rest.


Number 9 – that was the number of a laxative pill given to British servicemen during WW2. No symbolism here.

  1. Haha, love your take on the challenge! I look for a ‘forced fit’ too sometimes, when the theme is too vague or weird or a word picked at random. 😉

    1. You can always make a photograph fit, or in my mind’s eye you can. Other people probably look and think “what is he on about”. Thank you for taking the time to comment, always appreciated.

    1. I used to do a lot of action shots like this way back when. Now I’m a much more sedate landscape photographer. I suppose it comes with age. Thank you for commenting.

    1. Sometimes with these WP challenges you have to think differently, or at least I do. As most of my photography today is purely landscape I don’t see many written numbers out in the wilds. I’m glad you liked the photographs and thank you for taking the time to comment on my work.
