Welcome to the 202nd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
Thanks to all of you for creating a stunning set of posts! It was an absolute pleasure to read each and every one of your posts, as each found something unusual or, in the case of one country, something that happens all the time. Some of you included a reminder that we need to do something about all this junk, which we cannot hear often enough.
When you read all these great posts, I’m confident that you’ll enjoy them as much as I did. Thank you again and have fun with these posts!
Here we get everything, including the kitchen sink…
Even on the gorgeous Isle of Skye, one can come across some junk! This sink that had been dumped unceremoniously in this lovely field really caught my eye. This composition breaks a couple of rules, but I felt it created the right amount of tension between the sink and Nature’s beauty…
Please enjoy the following blog posts:
Kammie starts things this week with some of her treasures in a wonderful post in Nut House Central; I have to admit that the radio dial is just awesome!
This week in theOnlyD800intheHameau we join on a househunting trip in rural France, where the interior decorator asks us to use our imagination! Great post!
Jackie has a scene right out of the Beverly Hillbillies in her post in JunkBoat Travels; if only granny was sitting atop the wagonload! There are some other great scenes as well!
Na’ama has another fantastic poem in her post in Na’ama Yehuda, as a treasure is found! The photo is also rather stunning!
Nandini is junking it up in her haikus in her post in queennandini; great writing and some rather cool pictures too!
Maria shows us that lizards may have a very different appreciation than we do of what has value in Kamerapromenader; it’s a treasure to them!
Diane shares another great post in pensivity101, as we learn about how junk might have value to others; the junk in the photos looks rather nice!
Ken has a wonderful photo of treasures of a bygone era in Pictures without Film, as some parts may no longer be useful…
Andrea has some amazing photos of interesting junk in her post in ARHtistic License; she clearly has a keen awareness of the world around her!
Julie’s post in Eat, Play, Live has some salvage parts turned into art; as she says, this is definitely not junk, as the salvage is from the World Trade Center…
Sarah shows us that taking the trash out can be a colorful experience with a wonderful photo in her post in By Sarah; great scene!
Carol’s post in Light Words certainly put a smile on my face, as I’ve never seen anybody so happy with Tony the Tiger! There’s more great junk in Carol’s post as well; go check it out!
Bren shares another gorgeous photo in her post in Brashley Photography, with a great sense of abandonment; did that boat have hopes of becoming a junk?
David has some rather intriguing junk in his post in David M’s Photoblog; taking apart a zoom lens is one challenge that I have never undertaken, so it was rather cool to see the contents of the lens on display in this post!
Jez takes us for a visit to a nice little home in his post in Photos by Jez; that lizard has a nice place!
Brian highlights some of humanity’s junk in his post in Bushboy’s World; our junk makes living quarters for various creatures… Amazing adaptation!
The post in JP the Wide-eyed Wanderer has a fantastic junk garden in it; that just goes to show that anything might make a garden!
Beware of Viveka’s post in myguiltypleasures; it might make you hungry! Viveka shares one of the junk pleasures that she doesn’t feel guilty about: burgers!
Deb has another awesome post in her blog, Twenty Four; the practical use of junk is expressed brilliantly!
The photo in Land of Images is absolutely gorgeous, and I love its depiction of rusty remnants! Now, I’m trying to decipher what exactly was dumped there…
Sandy reminds me of something really relevant in her post in Out of my Write Mind: no matter how we hide our junk…it’s still junk! Awesome post!
TiongHan gives us a very Dutch view of junk in a wonderful post in TiongHan’s Blog; bicycles in canals are a perennial problem in the Netherlands!
The saying is definitely true in a great post in WoollyMuses, and I agree that some junk is just not a treasure to have lying around.
Sometimes when you see a piece of junk that looks like the one that we get to see in Geriatri’X’ Fotogallery, we might be tempted to test its mettle…
Robert highlights a magnificent item in his post in photo roberts blog! That scale might have been thrown out, if it were too honest!
Tatiana has a wonderful set of photos that tell the story of Chloride, Arizona, in her post in VegasGreatAttractions; there’s some rather interesting junk there. The only thing that would concern me is the name of the town…
Rupali highlights a problem that exists all around the world with a great photo in her post in mazeepuran; parents, please teach this lesson!
Please let all these wonderful authors know how much you enjoy their blog posts!
Time for another submission to the 52 Week Smartphone Challenge by Khürt Williams. The theme for week 9 is ‘Mood’: “Your Artistic Inspiration this week is the mood you are feeling today. Take that mood and use it to create art.”
This shot is from my sauntering through Liverpool after attending a fantastic match at Anfield between Liverpool and Tottenham. For this challenge, I did a B&W conversion using Luminar 4 (Blair Witch Look – Magical Forests by Albert Dros) and cleaning up in Photoshop.

Welcome to the 201st round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
A bit late in my round up, but I think it might be worth the wait, as the Yard theme elicited an amazing set of response with some great interpretations. From reading all these posts, there’s something to learn, lots to enjoy, and the occasional chuckle! I thank all of you for this great set of creative posts!
I hope you enjoy these posts as much as I did!
Here is a little backyard…
As my wife and I were sauntering around after dinner in the lovely town of Cromarty, Scotland, the golden hour was appearing at full strength! This view of the yard and lovely house gives you an idea of how richly colored the light was. I actually toned down some of the saturation to make it look a bit better…
Please enjoy the following blog posts:
Kammie starts things this week in her post in Nut House Central; we get some fantastic views in her backyard, including a very photogenic squirrel!
More stunning photos this week in a great post in Don’t Hold Your Breath, as we get to enjoy a Brahminy Starling (aka Myna)!
Na’ama has an amazing yard in her post in Na’ama Yehuda, which is definitely a great place to be and enjoy!
Ann-Christine takes us into a magnificent yard in her post in To see a world in a grain of sand…, which may not be the largest yard, but it has everything one needs, including a cat!
Jackie brings out some of the best in yards in her post in JunkBoat Travels, and I definitely have a favorite among them!
This week in theOnlyD800intheHameau we go to Giverny and are treated to a magnificent photo of a stone in the graveyard; part of the family plot?
Diane has a project under way in her back yard, as we can see in her lovely post in pensivity101. Time to assemble the greenhouse!
Carol definitely has a lot blooming in her yard! Her post in Light Words shows this with great photographs!
Sarah might just have the win on colorful yard denizens in her post in By Sarah, as the Gang-Gang Cockatoo is stunning!
Maria has some great yards in her post in Kamerapromenader, of which I love the open feeling of the Botanic Garden!
TiongHan stakes us into Catalunya with some wonderful photos in his post in TiongHan’s Blog; the graveyard sure looks beautiful!
In a lovely post in her blog For the Love Of, Anita has not only a great photo of a graveyard, but complements it with a magnificent poem!
Nandini has several interesting takes on our theme in her post in queennandini; now I’d like to go visit a cool yard sale!
Julie takes a wonderful approach in her post in Eat, Play, Live, as she takes us on a trip to a shared yard! Parks are awesome yards!
Welcome to week 202 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
You really went Yard with last week’s theme (the round up will be posted later today). As this took me back to a moment in Scotland, it detoured me to a moment in Inverness, filled with unexpected American exports that led me to the theme of Junk!Junk food to be precise in this instance, as you can see in the photo below. Of course, Junk can be used in many ways from one person’s garbage to another one’s art or treasure! Your challenge is to find some Junk that speaks to you and share it with all of us!
I hope that you can have a lot of fun with this theme, and can’t wait to see the best junk yet!
Here’s the storefront window that inspired me…
Walking around in Inverness and enjoying the local scenery, this store caught me by surprise and elicited some laughter from me! Of course, I had to capture this moment and preserve some of our (not so) finest exports. Part of the fun here was that at that time Twinkies were not on the shelves in stores in the USA; there was a hiatus in their availability from November 21, 2012 until July 15, 2013 due to bankruptcy proceedings.
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
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)!!
Don’t just throw out that junk, but capture it this week!!
Time for another submission to the 52 Week Smartphone Challenge by Khürt Williams. The theme for week 8 is ‘Leading Lines’: “It is easy to use Leading Lines to show depth in an image or guide the eye to a specific spot in the image. Instead, this week use leading lines to show the concept of infinity.”
As it happened, I was taking the train back from Boston after a conference, when I came upon this view… Lucky to get these lines going to infinity (and beyond…)
