Welcome to Week 64 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.
As I’ve just recovered from the wealth of responses to last week’s challenge, I have been a little challenged to come up with this week’s theme….
Therefore, I thought about what might be meaningful about this week to a number of readers and as it was Canada Day this past Saturday (Happy 150th birthday!) and it is Independence Day in the United States today, I thought why not go for History as a theme?
What I’d like you to do in this challenge is to share a bit of your personal view of history in your image(s) and post. History has a lot of meaning for many of us, and certain parts of history may resonate more with us than others. It will be fun to see what parts of history we bring together this week, as a globally diverse group of Earthlings! (yes, I’m assuming that we’re all from this planet 🙂 ).
So, be creative, let your mind wander, fill your eyes with wonder and take us along on a trip of historic proportions! This could just be fun!
Here’s a glimpse at part of what history means to me…
This view across the Forum in Rome this year was a rather significant moment for me, as my decision to apply to a program that placed Dutch students at universities in the USA, meant that I could not go on my high school class trip to Rome. This always felt a little bit like a gap in my education, which, after forty-one years, was bridged this year. To me, the Forum represents one of the three significant influences on Western civilization, which has had quite an impact on my life (a side-effect of a classical education in the Netherlands at the Gymnasium Erasmianum).
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
So, don’t skip a step in your creative process, and step lively to sharing your photography and writing!
