Photography is one of those activities we can all have fun with and blog about, at home, in the garden, walking the streets, in the countryside, in a museum or gallery ….. the opportunities are endless. You can be a wizard or a novice with a camera or a smartphone, or a crafty manipulator with Photoshop, or Lightroom or Snapseed. It really doesn’t matter how you create your image because in the end it is a work of art, a creation, a memory, and possibly a source of inspiration to others. Blogging your images is easy too, few words needed, let the picture tell the story. And, very importantly in these strange times, it can give us a distraction, a positive focus, connect us with others, and build a community via our blogs. So why not join in, start snapping and sharing with me.

Each week I am selecting a single theme to point my camera at or display a few photos from my collection as a way to brighten up the week as we enter a new year which we all hope will be brighter than the last. If you would like to join me in #challengeyourcamera then here’s what to do:

1. Follow me to discover the weekly theme I have chosen.
2. Select a few photos related to the week’s theme
3. Post your own photos that week, any day you like.
4. Include a caption with each photo so we know what/where it is
5. Include a ping back/link to my blog in your post so that I am notified, can follow you back and can appreciate and comment on your choices.
6. Include the tag #challengeyourcamera

1. I will follow you back
2. I will encourage other posters to follow you
3. I will list each blogger in my weekly post

Theme #1 Architecture

Today is the first challenge theme, #1Architecture so give it a go, challenge your camera with different angles, lighting, time of day etc etc. Here’s my own first offerings on the architecture theme.

    Hi, and thank you so much for having a go at my camera challenge and following me. We are also travellers, but as you have said in your About page 2020 has been bereft of opportunity. Quite depressing really. I also just use my iPhone now together with a couple of apps to expand the flexibility of the camera itself. You’ve posted quite a mix for architecture and I like to see the interior of buildings too. French chateau are often completely empty which I usually have a moan about!
    This is the first time I’ve run a challenge and wasn’t even sure if anyone would have a go, and each week I will list the people who joined in when I post the fresh challenge on Mondays. If I mess up, do shout out!

        I have quite an eclectic list of topics or themes that might challenge the brain rather than the camera!

    I like the look of that thatched cottage in the sidebar. Those castles are beautiful but think of the maintenance 🙂 🙂


    1. The castle is now a 5-star hotel and spent 47 million to re-furbish it in 2015!
