Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 214

Patience is rewarded!

Welcome to the 214th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Thank you for your patience, as i’ve been tardy; the final stages of our bathroom remodel made for a bit of extra work on my part that I hadn’t planned for. The results were worth it, I think.

Thank you for a lovely set of posts on the theme of Assemble, which were both creative and inspiring; as always, it was an absolute pleasure to read your posts and interpretations of the theme. Please, take a moment and peruse your fellow bloggers’ posts.

One of you inspired me to look for this assembly…

Geese on the Quinapoxet

If I remember correctly, it took me more than 30 shots to get these geese to line up in some semblance of proper assembly, as they didn’t heed my requests at all; luckily the light held for this period of time, which made for a rather pleasing image.

Please enjoy the following blog posts:

  1. You’ll love the post for the theme in Don’t Hold Your Breath, as it assembles a rather tasty treat!
  2. Ken hits all the right (bass) notes in his post in Pictures without Film; still a bit of work to be done before the sound is ready for the stage!
  3. Nicole brings us a sign of better times in her post in Une Photo, Un Poéme; a great set of directions are assembled on a single post!
  4. The assembly in Xenia’s post in Tranature appears to be waiting for just the right moment to get into the water! A wonderful post!
  5. The joy of using one’s own assembly skills is showcased in a lovely post in Our Other Blog: Two Sisters and Two Points of View; those Christmas treats look really good!
  6. With a couple of magnificent photos, David brings us a sizable assembly of Snow Geese in David M’s Photoblog; I can imagine the amount of noise that many geese produce!
  7. Sandy also brings us incredible numbers of birds in her post in Out of my Write Mind, as they assemble for an epic migration! Awesome post!
  8. Maria reminds us of something else that we miss in our current times with her post in Kamerapromenader; morning assembly is just not the same without being surrounded by schoolchildren!
  9. Khürt might feel challenged to assemble the words that express his feelings at the moment; his post in Island in the Net demonstrates that he can present much more than a 1,000 words with a single image!
  10. Michelle brings us a wonderful expression of human ability to assemble and create art out of anything in her post in Take a walk and discover!
  11. Susan brings us a lovely image of something that many of us yearn to re-create in her post in Musin’ with Susan: the ability to assemble around the dining room table with family and friends! Also, please take a look at Susan’s week of photos in review in Musin’ with Susan; this post is filled with wonderful images!
  12. It might be difficult to get everything to line up perfectly, as we can see in the lovely post in A Day in the Life; those ducklings don’t want to assemble in a line without a good reason!

Please let all these wonderful authors know how much you enjoy their blog posts!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Assemble

A fierce Crocodile is assembled!

Welcome to week 214 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

First of all, thank you for the great response to last week’s theme; I will post the round up, some time on Wednesday.

The theme for this week is inspired by some of the fun that I have been having with Lego’s Creator Expert kits, which are works of art and a joy to assemble! In the way that jigsaw puzzles are a great, almost meditative distraction to our daily lives, I find similar relaxation in these kits.

With the theme of Assemble, you can go into a number of directions, as the English language provides some options to its meaning. Thus your challenge is to let your mind take you on a mission to assemble creative juices and share the artistic expression that you find at the end of this mission! Most of all, have fun with the theme and surprise yourself!

Here’s the kit that I put together this past weekend…

The Crocodile Locomotive

As I’ve been a fan of trains for as long as I can remember, I have always had a special place in my heart for this locomotive, the Crocodile. This class of electric locomotive was designed to handle pulling heavy loads up the steep inclines of the Swiss railroad. The Lego model is true to the original in the articulated cab with the transformer, that connects to the front and aft sections that contain the motors and drive axles. The Lightailing light kit really makes this model stand out.

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)!!

Find your assembly point and stay safe!
