Welcome to the 139th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
This week was filled with Anticipation! My eager anticipation for your posts was not misplaced. You made me smile, ponder, wonder and truly enjoy your creative work this week. I really enjoyed reading your posts and getting some of the essence from each of them.
Thank you all for all the effort you put into your posts and the creative energy! May you have a wonderful Holiday Season!
Sometimes, all we have is anticipation…
The story behind this image is that during our vacation to Scotland, my wife and I visited the uninhabited Isle of Staffa. The tour brochure spoke of the many puffins that nest on Staffa, as they are not disturbed by humans. Carrying a top of the line Canon 400mm lens, I was the envy of every other photographer on the boat on our way over to Staffa. Upon arrival, we climbed the paths up into the island to get a better view, which was lovely! Of course, there was not a single puffin to be found… It made for a great opportunity to photograph seagulls 🙂
The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:
The bird sitting on the edge of Brian’s birdbath in Bushboy’s World looks to be filled with anticipation!
Shelley’s post in Quaint Revival focuses on something that we may not anticipate during the holiday season: Christmas shopping bills.
Charles definitely captured the anticipation for that next meal in his photo in charlesewaugh, as the chick looks eagerly for some regurgitated food!
This week, pensivity101 brings us the wonder of bringing a present that lights up the face of a child; her story is just precious!
In a wonderful post in Don’t Forget the Half, we enjoy the anticipation of that moment when the house keys are given to you and you are a home owner!
Another great post in SyncWithDeep takes in some key aspects of anticipation in a great poem!
Welcome to Week 139 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
First of all, I’m running a bit behind schedule, as I am in the middle of redoing my studio space and just got the basics rewired during the past hour. There’s still the audio cabling and arranging of instruments and microphones to set up for some musical work. The end result is that I will be finishing up the weekly round up tomorrow for posting on Wednesday.
This is a perfect lead-in to this week’s theme, as the challenge is to capture Anticipation… That moment, when you know that what your heart desires is arriving soon, or maybe not… Will it or won’t it? All of us have felt the anticipation of that special day, when presents might arrive; it could be a birthday, Chanukah. Eid Al-Fitr, Sinterklaas, Christmas, or any other significant day. The look of wonder in a child’s eyes or many other possibilities.
I anticipate a truly amazing set of images, as we cross the Winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere (and Summer in the south). I’m filled with the joy of what I might get to see and read! Have fun and enjoy this season!
Here’s something we might anticipate…
Each day the Sun rises… it is something that we might take for granted, but I, for one, eagerly anticipate the beauty that the new day will bring. While it is a daily event, there is something of renewal and spiritual recharge that occurs with the birth of the Sun…
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)!!
