Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 170

Sculpture everywhere…

Welcome to the 170th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

What an amazing set of sculptures were featured in your posts! It was especially wonderful to see some of the rather unusual sculptures that you captured in your adventures. It would be interesting to map all of your photos across the globe, as you covered a wide variety of locations; also, I noticed that some of your paths intersected across time, which gives that small planet feeling!

Thank you for a tremendous set of posts, which were a joy to read and peruse. I hope you had fun with them as well!

Here’s another piece of sculpture…

Sacrifice

One of the wonderful discoveries during our trip to Italy, was the archaeological park ‘Gli Scavi di Ostia Antica’, which is a must visit, as it gives a great sense of what the ancient port city of Rome was like. During our wanderings through these excavations, we came upon this piece of sculpture below ground; it was worth getting there and finding this example of the cult of Mithras…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sculpture

Welcome to week 170 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

I’m home and slowly catching up, after getting a flight cancelled on Saturday and thus not getting home until Sunday. There was a benefit, as it allowed me to visit the beautiful city of Prague on Saturday. I’m halfway through this last week’s Round Up and will finish it on Tuesday night.

For this week’s theme, I was inspired by the significant amount of wall decoration that I encountered both in Brno and Prague. The theme of Sculpture challenges you to share photography of Sculpture both large and small, as you enjoy it in your world. There should be plenty of opportunity to find some cool Sculpture!

Have fun and feel free to make some faces back at the sculpture!

Here’s a rather serious looking gent, as he holds up the wall…

The load is heavy…

This is one of the sculptures that can be found on buildings off one of the main squares in Brno. Their faces are expressive and sometimes even a bit intimidating!

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)!!

Don’t just stand there like a statue! Go out and capture some sculpture…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 168

Inside the wall…

Welcome to the 168th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

My apologies for this very late round up; sometimes business travel can overtake one’s schedule and that certainly happened this week.

Finishing up this wonderful array of posts on the theme of Wall in my hotel room in Prague makes me appreciate all the creativity of your entries even more. My brain and eyes may be tired, but your entries broke through those barriers and made me smile, chuckle and muse with appreciation in viewing and reading your awesome posts!

Thank you very kindly for all of your great posts and the hard work that went into them and even more for your patience!

Here is another view of a wall…

Inside the walls…Spilberk Castle

The climb up to Spilberk Castle is good exercise on a warm day, for which you are rewarded with a spectacular bit of construction. As it was later in the day, I only had time to visit the Casemate, which included the interior of the wall. Believe me, you didn’t want to end up here as a prisoner…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Hill

Atop the hill…

Welcome to week 169 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

As I am traveling for work this week, I have been pretty much out of touch due to long work days and little time between meetings. My apologies for the resultant delay. As I will have this evening to myself, I will get last week’s round up done then. Also, I should get the chance for some personal time on Friday to get a bit of photography in as well…

As I did get the chance to look out of my hotel room at night, there was a bit of inspiration that led to this week’s theme of Hill. In the town of Brno, there is a spectacular view of Spilberk Castle, which has stood atop the hill for over seven centuries. Therefore, your challenge is to share your favorite hills and/or what you find atop them.

I’m looking forward to seeing what hills you climb and capture!

Here’s the castle on the hill…

Spilberk Castle

This view is from my 12th floor hotel room; this room has the feature that windows open all the way, so that I could get a good view. I’ve also taken a couple of EOS R shots that I will process in the near future.

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)!!

Hope you have fun with this week’s (day late) theme and conquer the hills!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wall

Walls for good…

Welcome to week 168 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

You brought back plenty of the Outdoors last week, which inspired me to get outdoors with the EOS R and bring back some new material; next week, the camera will go with me to the Czech Republic, so expect more soon! For this week, I grabbed one of the images from this weekend. When I photograph old mill buildings, I enjoy capturing some of the details that show their character. There is nothing more spectacular in these buildings than the Wall, that protects it from the elements across the centuries. Use this theme in the way that sparks your creative juices! There are plenty of Walls to be found!!

I’m curious to see what you will come up with, as I’m confident it will be good! Have fun with this theme!!

Here’s that wall…

Growing a wall…

This shot is from the Hardwick Mill in Gilbertville, MA; the growth caught my eye with the shadows that it was casting and the contrast that was created against the wall.

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)

Have some fun and remember to not hit your head against the wall!
