Well, 2020 has been wonderful so far, hasn’t it?
And we are already into April. Heck, with everything going on in the world, I see people on social media saying “April Fool’s Day is canceled.” I mean, I guess if people think they have some sort of power, but who are they to tell anybody anything during this time? We all cope differently.
Our world is in uncharted waters. We are battling so much right now, and mix all that with the amount of hate in this world and it’s even worse. Somehow, our current situation is hitting every person in this world, be it direct or indirect. The numbers climb and we stay glued — watching and wondering.
Alas, I will probably touch upon this in another post I am working on. No need to clog it all up here. But, photography — along with laughter and whatever else you need to do to get through these times — is here to help. And this challenge will continue, though I did change up the theme for April from my original plan.
So take this theme that is posted below and think about it; interpret it; and make it yours. If you know other bloggers who could use something to join, have them check out this post and take part with us. Let’s use this to help us.
So with that in mind, let’s look at the monthly “group” challenges:
Challenge 1: Tell others about this photo blogging challenge and get some friends to come join us. Let’s see if we can get people interested in the challenge again.
Challenge 2: Make friends with your camera and see what you can come up with. Have fun!
Challenge 3 is at the end of this post (the theme!).
Before this, here’s some housekeeping items. For those who might be new to the challenge, here’s how it works.
- See the theme (first day of the month);
- Take photos throughout the month (don’t use old ones!);
- Select five photos and create a blog post;
- Come back here and link up on the final day of the month;
- Use the official hashtag — #Photoblogchal — on social media posts;
- Hopefully go visit and comment on other blogs.
That’s it. There’s no rules on equipment or anything else. Blog posts can be short and to the point, or in-depth. Interpret the themes as you see fit.
The one big rule?
This month’s theme? Your World. Whether you are inside or outside, or being isolated somewhere else, show us your world. Maybe it’s a walk on empty streets. Maybe it’s something inside. But show us your world as we all go through this together. Please make sure your blog post publishes Thursday, April 30. Then come back here and link up.
If you think you are going to take part in this, drop a comment below so we can see who all might be trying to tackle this challenge!
There is also a Facebook group for those who are interested.
