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.

If you want to give it a go follow the link above to the Daily Post

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

  • 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…
  • Olympus Image Space–Llangollen Railway - It’s 6:30 am, just getting light and there is torrential rain falling. That’s not good! I’ve got a photography day out with Olympus on the Llangollen Railway today and it looks like it’s going to be a total washout. Olympus,…
  • Sur Le Pont D’Avignon - Despite what the traditional French song says, the dance actually took place under the bridge. To be honest, for all that it is famous and immortalised in a song, the bridge didn’t really impress me that much. To give the…
  • Come With Me To Arles, France - I’m in France, well to be more accurate, I was. I’m home now but I did take a lot of photographs whilst I was away. Arles is situated on the River Rhone at the point where the river starts to…
  • Point of Ayr – Long Abandoned - Normally on a Wednesday night I’d be at the Camera Club but with the floor being renovated in the hall it was time for a field trip. A place I haven’t been to in a long time is the  site…
  • Photography Wind ups - Originally posted on Photography Grouch:
    1 . Stupid watermarks on even worse images , Why do some people insist on putting indiscrete watermarks their photos  that take up quarter of the page or even worse plonk it right in the…
  • Has “Say It With A Camera” Lost It’s Way? - I’m not a stats guy. I don’t look at the WordPress stats every day, In fact I might not look at them for months and months. But one thing I am aware of. The number of comments on “Say It…
  • The Truth Of Art - So let me start by saying that after this post I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a week or so, as I head off on a late holiday. Right then to this weeks challenge. Don’t you just love…
  • They Are Going To Get Wet - I don’t know if it’s because we are an island nation but we British do love the water. Get a nice hot sunny day and people will go for a paddle at the beach. The really brave will go swimming,…
  • All Is Quiet And I Am Half Asleep - All is quiet in the Hardisty household. Our summer visitors have gone and No 1 son is currently sitting in Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands, awaiting a flight to take up residence again in the mysterious orient. For him it’s…
  • What’s In A Sunset? Macphun Luminar Windows Beta - I’m always willing to try new software and when Macphun anounced a beta version for Windows of their popular program for Mac called Luminar. I thought, why not? Especially as one of my favourite plugins NIK Color Efex is no…
  • Teddy Bears Picnic - Completely different from my normal style of photography, I’ve been playing around with props, to make a sort of still life, as part of a challenge for Prestatyn Camera Club. Clichéd, I know, but it was just for fun. Mike
  • The Donkey Said “What’s Behind Me” - Last Saturday was Prestatyn’s annual carnival day and amazingly in the seven years I have lived here I’ve never attended. So with the challenge this week being unusual, I thought there might be a good photo opportunity.. How wrong I…
  • Another Great Sunset - I just knew it was going to happen, a great sunset. You could see the way the clouds were forming that it might be worth taking a trip down the beach. So when the Prestatyn and District Camera Club finished…
  • Fire In The Sky - Don’t you just hate it. I started to write this post and then got side-tracked into doing something else. The result is as you can guess, I lost it all. For some reason, Windows Live Writer didn’t do it’s normal…
  • A Bit Of Everything This Week - I sometimes wonder what the guys who dream up the WordPress Weekly Challenge themes are on. So they take a photograph, dream up some vague relationship to time passing and then name the theme Delta. Seriously! So here’s my alternative.…
  • On The Beach - I used to like walking on the beach, I still do, but I probably don’t take as many photographs as I used to. The beach at Weston and Uphill was particularly good for finding things washed up on the beach.…
  • So Much Promise…But - Last night I was in town for our camera club meeting. During a short break for coffee we all stepped outside the building to get a breath of fresh air to be met with this glorious pattern in the sky.…
  • Death By Slideshow! - Last Saturday was a really hot day, well for the UK and North Wales it was. Out in the open my car recorded a temperature of 95oF or 35oC. Too hot for a peely wally Scot like me. But I…
  • It’s All A Blur - Another one of those weeks when the challenge title can mean so much, depending on how you interpret it. Yes, you can always go with the guidelines laid down in the challenge but that’s all too easy sometimes. Besides, you …
  • An Apology - It’s more than likely that you received a Temporary Post from me on Thursday as a result of me changing the theme I use for Say It With A Camera. Regular readers will know that I use Windows Live Writer…
  • Order, Order, Order - I was thinking about what to do with this weeks challenge, probably far too long, here we are Tuesday afternoon and I still haven’t written anything. But regular readers will know that I’m often on the last-minute. Right now I’m…

    Some great stuff here Mike. I’d love for you to throw your hat into the ring for my maiden challenge? As you liked the post I just thought I’d offer.

    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.
