Tuesday Photo Challenge – Field

Fields of war and peace

Welcome to Week 120 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  Once more, thanks to all of you who contributed to last week’s theme of Wind!  Your response was overwhelming and fantastic!

For this week’s theme, I’m going for something that is wide open (on a good day): Field!  Once again this is a thematic word that can be interpreted in many ways, ranging from the field through which you walk or where you play to a field of studies, and several other directions that you can field however you like!  As always, the important part is that you have fun with this theme, and take the reins off your creative powers to lead you far afield!

I anticipate another array of wonderful entries, and look forward to reading them all!

Here’s a field that is a part of history…

Warfield Ridge

This image is from a trip that my wife and I took in 2010, during which we visited Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  This American Civil War battlefield is one of the most well known, both for the extreme number of casualties and Abraham Lincoln’s famous address to commemorate the battle.  Walking across the battleground, one can feel the suffering and horrors that took place in this locale, particularly early in the morning while it is quiet…

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)!!

I’m looking forward to seeing what winds up filling your posts!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 119

Whispering breezes

Welcome to the 119th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  Another wonderful week of responses!

All of your posts were a delight to read both because of their creativity and the thought that you put into them.  Their were numerous interpretations of the theme Wind, each one of them interesting and beautiful.  Thank you for a great set of entries, and I hope that you’ll enjoy reading each one as much as I did!

Here’s another view of the wind…

Autumn Winds

This image also came from a nice walk through Tower Hill Botanic Garden, as Autumn was in full swing with its rich color palette!  The breeze through the leaves gave me an idea for a slightly different technique to capture the wind…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wind

The long and winding road

Welcome to Week 119 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  What an amazing array of responses to last week’s theme of Play!  Thank you all!

Looking for a follow up to last week’s theme, I was poking around and checking whether or not I had used the theme before.  I came across a tag that I’d used, but not for a TPC theme: Wind!  One thing that I like about this theme is that it can be taken into multiple directions!  It can be the Wind that provides a gentle breeze on a hot Summer’s day, or the road that Winds its way to your door.  And there are other possibilities that your creative interpretations can use this week!

Have fun with this one and share your ideas!  I know that I look forward to your cool ideas and I’m sure everyone else will be just as eager to see your posts!

Here’s one time that the wind caught my eye…

This wind spinner caught my eye, and made me think that it would be fun to do a bit of creative photography by playing with the shutter speed.  It came out pretty pleasing to my eye!

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)
