Weekly Photo Challenge


Earlier this year I started taking part in the Weekly Photo Challenge sponsored by WordPress

Here’s how the weekly photo challenge works:

1. Each week, on a Friday, the folks at WordPress provide a theme for creative inspiration. I take photographs based on my interpretation of the theme, and post them on my blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme is announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check my photos, I title my blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and use a “postaday2011″ or “postaweek2011″ tag.

3. I also subscribe to The Daily Post so that I don’t miss out on the weekly challenge announcements.

As the front page of my blog was getting too full with previous weekly posts I have moved the links to here to try and tidy things up a bit

  • Where Are The Dragons? - Wales, or more specifically North Wales, where I live, is the land of magnificent castles, stately homes, railways, festivals and the scenery is superb. Fantastic sandy beaches, tumbling rivers, waterfalls, mountains and lakes. I think I’ll just let the photographs…
  • It’s Now Tuesday…… - All is quiet in our household. Photography has taken a bit of a back seat as the weather, once again, has not been conducive (that’s a big word for Monday morning) to getting out with the camera. By this time…
  • It Is What It Is - How do you think up the title of your posts? At one time I used to use “Weekly Photo Challenge: and then whatever the them was for that week i.e. Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence. Real interesting and very eye-catching. So…
  • A Mixed Bag, This Week - It’s been a week of contracts. New phone, car insurance, broadband, travel insurance, had to get that renewed as I’ve got some interesting trips coming up this year starting in March. Told the kids I’m going to take up SKI’ing,…
  • Storm Eleanor - My first photograph of 2018 and it seems appropriate that it should be of the sea, seeing as I live in a coastal town. Today sees our coastline battered by Storm Eleanor and with higher than normal tides predicted Natural…
  • A Final Thought….. - I thought my post the other day would be the last for this year, but here I am New Years Eve with another quick one. Yesterday wasn’t too bad weather wise so I decided to take my eldest son, home…
  • Another Year Has Gone……I’m Getting Old - It’s nearly the end of the year and I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite photographs that I have taken throughout 2017. It’s hard to choose though but here goes. January started off blustery with some high…
  • Risk Assessment - I have just received an addendum to my Photographers Liability Insurance Policy from my insurance company entitled Seasonal Variations and Exclusions. It’s a rather strange, have a look and let me know what you think. Each year we are required…
  • I’m Not Running Away………… - So much to do, so little time. In the run up to Christmas I’ve been kept busy by “She Who Must Be Obeyed” doing all sorts of things. Not had much time for photography, but anyway the weather hasn’t been…
  • A Sign Of The Times! - Last weekend I was in Liverpool for a street photography walk organised by the guys from Shoot Mirrorless. This walk was different as it took me to parts of Liverpool I’d never been before. So let’s get on with the…
  • Quick Night Photograph - Well not so quick, really. It’s a 50 second exposure. Last night the camera club decided on a visit to photograph the bridge over the River Dee from Connah’s Quay. It was cold night, plenty of cloud about as well.…
  • Oops! I Forgot - It’s 4;30 pm on a cold Tuesday afternoon, here in the UK. I’m sitting at my computer when it struck me. I haven’t submitted anything for this weeks challenge. Although to be fair, I’ve been busy testing new software and…
  • It’s In The Bag! - Regular readers will know that I’m always willing to share how I took a photograph and  any steps I might have taken to develop the photographs that I publish to this blog. I even let you use the photographs for…
  • Architecture And More Architecture - During the time we were in Budapest we experienced some really dramatic weather. High winds, torrential rain, bitter cold days. But you still have to get out if you want to see the sights, These photographs were shot over several…
  • The Great Market Hall, Budapest - Last week I was lucky to be in Budapest for a short break. Although photography would be a part of the trip the idea was to enjoy some downtime with my wife. See the sights, taste the food, you get…
  • Underground, Did I See Anything in Budapest? - I’ve just got back from a short trip to Budapest and am still looking at all of the photographs I have taken there. But as this is Wednesday and it’s almost time for a new challenge I’ll just include a…
  • Night Time–Who’s Out There? - I am, at least I was on Wednesday night. After a busy day in Stockport I rushed back to get out with a group of photographers from the Prestatyn & District Camera Club for an evening shoot in Rhyl. If…
  • I’ve Been Busy–Is There Ever Enough Time - What a hectic two weeks it has been working on two separate projects at the same time. As many readers will know I joined a local start-up camera club, which is surprising for me as I’ve always been dead set…
  • A Museum For Photography–Let Me In - If I were to ask you who was Joseph Nicephore Niepce was you’d more than likely, like me say “Who”. Yet as photographers we should know his name and sing his praises. Why? Because good old Joseph was the man…
  • Hôtel-Dieu, Beaune - Once an alms-house for the poor, the Hotel Dieu is now a museum and at last I have found an ancient building in France that is not bare of furniture and fittings. Right from the start I knew there would…
  • On the Beach In Black And White - This week it’s going to be a quick one with just two photographs. Circumstances and time have caught up with me. But hopefully you will like the photographs. Sunday afternoon saw me at Talacre, I managed to break away for…
  • Château de Tournon - Once again I am disappointed by a French historical building that promised much and delivered so little. Perched above the town of Tournon, the castle has views over the town and river. Inside though another historical building has been stripped…
  • Où Est L’Oignon Johnny? - As a kid growing up in Glasgow I can remember when little Frenchmen with striped shirts and a black beret would cycle around the streets selling their onions. Each summer they would suddenly appear, their cycle bedecked with strings of…
  • Macon, Is That It? - Wander around Macon in France and you’ll soon come to recognise that it does not offer a lot for photographers. Maybe I’m doing the town an injustice but without stretching to a bit of street photography I was really struggling…
  • Llanrwst And I Got Wet - Now you might have noticed that I’ve changed the blog theme and there’s a reason behind that. I had a conversation the other day with a new reader to Say It With A Camera and after a while it became…

    Would be helpful if the challenge topics had dates ascribed to them. Jan Vilums.

      I see what you mean Jan. That code for that page need tidying because it is now including every article that I publish, instead of just displaying the Weekly Challenges. Previously I used to title the posts “Weekly Photo Challenge:Subject” but on the recommendation of WordPress I stopped using that format, mainly because it clashed with everyone else using the same title and basically I thought the post title style was boring. However I could incorporate in the opening text the date somewhere.
