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…
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:
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)!!
Have some fun and remember to not hit your head against the wall!
Welcome to the 167th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
Your entries on this week’s theme of Outdoors were fantastic! I was blown away by the amazing variety and creative approaches that all of you took to the theme; ranging from playgrounds to waterfalls and everything in between. Clearly, you have been to some fantastic locations and captured them with skill.
Thank you for all of your creative efforts in putting your posts together; I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
Here we are outdoors…
From this weekend’s test drive of my new EOS R, the outdoors can feature a point, at which we might be out of doors, as this door fades into the past.

Welcome to the 161st round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! My sincere apologies for the delay in getting this round up together; it’s been a crazy week after getting back from vacation.
Your posts on the theme of Vista were absolutely breathtaking! Both the photos and prose and poetry were top-notch, showing your creative eyes and pens! I truly enjoyed reading through your posts and seeing the work that you put into them.
Thank you very much for such an amazing set of posts! I look forward to seeing your reactions to all these posts as well.
Here’s a vista that looks into yesteryear…
This image goes back a number of years, when I was exploring some of the mill towns here in Massachusetts. This vista is photographed off the bridge straddling the Connecticut River, looking upstream toward Turners Falls; this wonderful little town has a significant number of mills and a great example of a power canal that diverts the river water for running the mills.
Sarah starts things for this theme with a stunning photo in her post in By Sarah; Cable Bay, New Zealand never looked better!
Miriam shares a wonderful array of vistas in her blog, Out an’ About, which is filled with amazing posts!

Woolly saw the word vista and in his post in WoollyMuses he brings us a million dollar view! I agree!
The WordPress Daily Photo Challenge provides the theme of Transformation.
In yesterday’s post, I mentioned the change of the seasons; today, another area of transformation.
In New England, one of the changes we see in many towns is that transformation of industry across the last century or two. Mills were built everywhere during the 19th century, using the power of the water that was available in many locations. However, as the 20th century changed the main source of power from water and steam to electrically driven manufacturing, locations of the mills would change. As a result, many of the bustling mills were abandoned and many towns faltered.
Here’s a look back into the 19th century…
The good news is that many of these classic buildings are being repurposed as office space, living space and some new manufacturing. This type of reuse is fantastic to see!
