Tuesday Photo Challenge – Go Big!

Supersize your ideas!

Welcome to Week 128 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Last week’s theme of Our World unleashed a great number of creative posts, as you shared views of your world and what the world might be with great photography, poetry and prose!  As I’m writing this post during a business trip, I thought I’d let a little bit of my current locale seep into the theme for this week; I’m in Austin, Texas, for 3 days, and, as you might know, everything is bigger in Texas!  Therefore, this week’s theme is Go Big!

Unleash your creative minds, lenses and pens, and share what Go Big! might mean to you.  As always, you have license to take the theme into any direction of your choosing, so have fun with this theme!

I’m filled with anticipation of what you might produce!!

Here’s something from antiquity, when the Romans went big…

IMG_May192017100813PM
Ageless Arches

Of course, the Colosseum is colossal, as you can tell from the size of the people in one of the leftmost arches on the second row…  The sheer size of the structure is imposing and its state of preservation across the ages is mind-boggling, particularly, when taking into account that it stands in an earthquake prone land.

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)!!

I’m definitely looking forward to finding out what supersized items appear this week!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 125

Hiatus Tuesday Photo Challenge

Access to WiFi has proven to be more of a challenge during my vacation in the Netherlands than I had expected. Also, my T-mobile data speed is insufficient to run my laptop network over it and write a blog post.

Therefore, my apologies for not having a post this week, which will restart next Tuesday when I return home. There will be lots of new photos!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Lift

Bringing us up higher

Welcome to Week 124 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  Your entries to last week;s challenge caused quite a Scene!

After we cleared the heady scenes from the past week, which were great fun and very creative, it’s time to let our spirits rise.  With that in mind, I think that we take this week’s challenge with the theme of Lift!  As you’ve learned to expect, this is another theme that you can take into multiple directions, so let your imagination run wild and submit that, which tickles your fancy!

I fully expect to be surprised by some of your upLifting interpretations!  Have fun!

Here, we see a rather powerful lift…

20130601-Falkirk_57A1645
Archimedes at Work!

The Falkirk Wheel is a rather unusual and unique lock in that it uses Archimedes’ principle to lift boats 24 meters, thus replacing a number of locks in connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal just a little ways outside Edinburgh in Scotland.

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)

I’m looking forward to seeing you lift the veil and uncover the beauty that lay hidden!
