Tuesday Photo Challenge – Future

Glimpses of tomorrow!

Welcome to Week 103 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  First a great big thank you to all of you for making last week’s challenge a success! It means a lot to me, particularly with such a personal topic.

As last week was all about looking back, I am making this week about looking forwrd with the theme of Future!  The future is all about hope and the bright and shiny possibilities of what may happen.  All the great things that we can imagine might be, or what we can achieve or dream about!

The challenge is to share something that makes us think of a future; of course, your imagination is your guide to what that is or how you represent it.  Have some fun with this one!

Here is what the future looked like yesteryear…

Visions of Future from the Past

The futuristic jet plane pointed the driver into the everything forward that lies ahead of their vehicle.  I miss the styling that looked with optimism toward a future of flying cars!

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)!!

Sorry for this theme in a minor key this week; I hope you understand.

A Present from the Past

When the present meets the past!

The WordPress Daily Prompt provides the theme of Present, which can be interpreted in multiple ways…

Whether we interpret present as the current time, or a gift, or something that we show to someone, or indicating that we are here, there’s no shortage of options!  So, I figured that I’d present you something from the past, when I was present at an autoshow….

This 1955 Chevy Bel Air also presented a view of what was then thought as the future, in its hood ornament; the highly stylized jet might well be in the air at some time in our future!

Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Curve

3.14159265359…

Welcome to Week 48 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. I had a lot of fun reading all your entries for last week’s challenge of Bloom, which was filled with beauty from all over the world.

This week, I’m going into a bit of a different direction.  Since today is Pi day (3/14), I thought that something that relates to Pi might be appropriate.  Hence, your challenge theme this week is Curve.  Curves are everywhere in the world around us, from leading curves in a great landscape to the beautiful curves of a car.

As always, feel free to be creative in your interpretation of the theme, and be sure to put your best effort into creating something evocative in your images.  There should be plenty of curves all around for you to capture and present in a novel way.

A bit of curvature to get you going….

’55 Chevy Bel Air

This image came from a day at a car show, when I was struck by the hood ornament and the various shades of blue coming together.  I thought it would be nice for the jet to be flying through the sky!

  • 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)
