Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 186

Built against the slope of the hill

Welcome to the 186th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

There was no shortage of interesting Slope to your posts! I found some truly surprising takes on the theme and, as always, was delighted by the great photography and great poems and tales that were in your posts! I especially learned that cats can be taskmasters, and that slope appears in unusual locales!

It was a lot of fun to view and read all of your posts; thank you for a great set of contributions!

Here is another slope…

Looking over Volterra

In another image from Tuscany, we look over the rooftops of the town of Volterra, as the houses sit on the slope of the hill. The contrast between the old construction and satellite dishes stood out to me, so I decided to leave them in the image as a reminder that technology is everywhere!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Slope

Gentle slopes abound

Welcome to week 186 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

After all the work and personal travel, I’m running a bit behind on my blog work, so expect to see last week’s round up post tomorrow. I’ve taken a quick look at some of your Steep posts and they are amazing! As there was a certain amount of Slope to last week’s theme, I thought it might be follow up with that for this week’s theme. Whether the slope of a line, a gently flowing hill slope, or sloping down a stream, there’s plenty that can be done with this theme.

I’m looking forward to seeing what all of your creative minds will generate! Most of all, have fun with this one!

Here’s a Tuscan field…

Gentle Slopes

During our vacation in Italy, my wife and I got to see quite a bit of beautiful Tuscan landscape, such as this view here. Hill slopes in the distance set a wonderful backdrop for the gently sloping fields in the foreground. As you can tell, the weather was majestic!

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)!!

Gently slope down the hill and roll up your findings!
