There’s no wheel, like an old wheel…

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 – Broken

Break it down!

Welcome to Week 81 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.

You proved that even the sky is not the limit in last week’s responses, as you brought out the WOW-factor in terms of creativity and photography skills!  So, for this week’s theme I wanted to go in a very different direction.  The image that inspired this week’s theme is one that I have come back to for years, and still like; thus you get the theme of Broken!

Your challenge is to find that around you, which is broken, yet still beautiful.  Of course, you can take broken into many directions, such as physical or emotional, or a sequence… You will figure out exactly what strikes a chord with you!  Have fun with this!

Here’s the image that I mentioned…

I think this image is from around 2004, as I just had bought my EOS 10D; as my wife and I were checking out a herding event on a farm, I noticed this broken wheel just off the path. It just had to be photographed!

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 looking forward to seeing what catches your eye this week…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Broken

Not a brokend record, but…

Welcome to Week 52 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. Last week’s theme of Morning provided the impetus for lots of creative contributions, ranging from bacon and sunrises to morning face!  This week’s challenge will complete the first year of the Tuesday Photo Challenge, which means that starting next week, I’ll have to beware of the sophomore jinx!  We’ll figure some way to keep it fresh 🙂

How do I follow up last week’s theme?  Piece of cake!  After all, “Morning has broken” is how the song goes, so this week, I’m going with Broken.  Of course, broken can be interpreted in various ways, ranging from breaking a fast to breaking an egg (for breakfast…) to a bond or a wheel.  There are lots of directions, in which you can take this, so let your imagination run free and express yourselves with creativity!

Feel free to explore this theme through whichever interesting passages your mind takes you; have fun with the theme and go nuts!

Here’s an image of something that is broken…

This is among my oldies, which I captured at a farm where my wife was checking out a herding trial.  It appeared in the corner of my eye and just begged to be photographed.
