Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 140

Your posts warmed my heart!

Welcome to the 140th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

This delayed round up starts us on the ground floor for the year; it’s nice to have finished the flooring project and start getting caught up on therest of my life.

Thank you for your patience and the wonderful Cold and Warm posts that you created! Despite the holiday season there were lots of creative entries for the week and I really enjoyed reading them.

I hope that you enjoy reading each other’s posts and have a wonderful New Year!

Here’s one way to deal with the cold…

Stuff, the Cardigan

When he first came home with us, December of 2017, it was pretty cold outside and Stuff was still a little, bitty thing. So we got him a cute little coat to keep him warm while going into the cold outside. Nowadays, he’s a sturdy 36 pounds of dog with a lush coat of his own, so he doesn’t mind the cold at all!

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

  1. This week, pensivity101 starts things off with the warm glow of the Sun, despite the chilly temperatures!
  2. In Life Amazing‘s post, we get a great view of Christmas at her house and staying warm with the right coat!
  3. Another great post in A Day in the Life catches the lovely warm glow on a very cold day…
  4. Jase’s post in Proscenium sings a little tune that Tom Petty might have appreciated, and it fits the season!
  5. Maria has some excellent snowboots in KameraPromenader; I’m sure that those keep her feet warm. Those snow crystals are magical!
  6. Woolly shares the spirit of the season in Woolly Muses, as he captured a great tree and some cool decorations (it was cool enough to think about wearing more than shorts).
  7. Tatiana captures some rather hot looking fountains in her post in Vegas Great Attractions; although I’m not sure that it’s ever cold there…
  8. Penny’s poem in Penny Wilson Writes really exemplifies both the hot and cold; it’s a great read!
  9. In Junk Boat Travels, we get the ultimate in cold, as there’s more than a little ice…
  10. In this week’s post in To See a World in a Grain of Sand… Ann-Christine went for an early morning walk when it was really cold, and captured some great sunrise shots!
  11. This week’s entry from theonlyD800inthehameau has plenty of humor in the shot that shows how to stay cool on a hot day!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Cold and Warm

Warm and cold, enjoy them both!

Welcome to Week 140 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! First of all, for those of you who celebrate: Merry Christmas!

In the northern hemisphere the season has brought in some of the cold that we might expect, and, sometimes, even welcome. In the southern hemisphere, Summer heat will be on its way to make the beaches even more welcome. This made me think of this week’s theme: Cold and Warm. The challenge is to combine both elements in your photography, poetry or prose. As usual, you have plenty of artistic license to take this theme into the direction of your choosing, as long as you have fun with it!

I’m sure that you’ll warm up to this week’s challenge and not leave me in the cold here in New England! I’m very much looking forward to your creativity!

Here’s a taste of warm and cold…

Winter’s Warming

This scene struck me, as the February morning was rather cold, but the Sun’s light had a warmth to it that changed the entire feel. It almost made me feel, as if I was looking at a Winter landscape through a window, while having a hot cocoa!

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)!!

Stay warm and come in out of the cold, or vice versa!
