Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wheel

What comes around…

Welcome to week 159 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

After a great week of Technology, I thought it would be fun to switch to some early technology that has affected humanity’s advancement over the ages; so this week, the theme is Wheel! Of course, the Wheel comes in all shapes and sizes, and it can be a noun or a verb. I think that this might give all of you some room for exploration and creative expression, to which I very much look forward!!

So let’s wheel around and have a blast with this theme!

Here’s a wheel of great power…

Archimedes at Work!

The Falkirk Wheel is a creative solution to reduce the number of locks that have to be traversed in order to overcome a height difference between canals. This wheel raises boats by 24 meters, so that they need to traverse only 2 additional locks to overcome the remaining 11 meters of difference between the Forth and Clyde Canal and the Union Canal. It’s an impressive machine to see in action!

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)!!

Spin the wheel and see what rolls for you!!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 158

Technology has a spine!

Welcome to the 158th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Fantastic use of technology this week! Your creative touch was firmly on display in the variety of technology that you brought to the table. It was a delight to read all of your posts! Of course, technology did rear its fickle head as well, as somehow more of your posts were caught in the spam filter than normal…

Regardless, I think I found all of them; if I missed one, please let me know and I will try to make amends. Please read each 0theres’ posts and have fun with them!

A bit of unusual technology…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Technology

May the tech be with you!

Welcome to week 158 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

With a great start into the 4th year, I was challenged to come up with a theme this week. The ones that came to mind had either been used or were too hard to verify that they were not a repeat… Then the theme of Technology came to mind, as that is what brought us all here. So your challenge for this week is to capture technology, old and new, in a way that connects it to you. I think that there are a lot of ways to go about this, even using technology to your best advantage!

Have fun and play with this challenge! Don’t let technology get in your way!!

Here’s a macro view of a disk enclosure…

Disk Enclosure

In this shot I wanted to get the sense of some abstract, infinite and eyeball bending. The speckling on the aluminum enclosure adds a bit of interest with the impinging light as a mysterious component. I’m going to have to print this one at some point, as I’m curious to see how this will look in a large format…

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)
