“What the world needs now… No, I’m not breaking out into a Hal David and Burt Bacharach pop tune! During this time of social distance, it is more important than ever that we connect with one another. I thought the theme of Connect might make a lot of sense. So, your challenge is to capture anything that either connects or with which you feel connected. The only requirement to your interpretation of the theme is that you have fun with it (and be safe). So let’s connect through our images!”
Connected by a sense of whimsy…
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Rest (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2020/02/04/tuesday-photo-challenge-rest/).
“After a wonderful week of feline fun, it might just be time for something a bit more sedate; with that in mind, I thought this week’s theme should be Rest… Well-deserved to be sure! Of course, with a theme like Rest, there are many directions, in which we can take this. After all, while you Rest, the Rest of the world could be awake… Whether a verb or a noun, you get to choose how you want to interpret this theme. So, don’t rest on your laurels and collect the rest of your ideas into a creative post! I can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with this week! Go out there and have fun with this one!”
Kittens at rest.
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Trees (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2020/01/21/tuesday-photo-challenge-trees/).
“Among all the themes that I haven’t done yet, I was surprised to find Trees (or Tree) among them! As I captured several interesting trees along the way, I thought there may be some possibilities here. Your challenge is to share some of your favorite trees with one another, and I’m sure there will be something of interest! For me, trees are both symbols of permanence and also persistence against the elements. They stand the test of time and can be admired and even revered. I’m looking forward to the trees in your lives!”
This is how I love to see trees.
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Portal (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2020/01/07/tuesday-photo-challenge-portal/).
“Welcome to week 194 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! As this is the first Tuesday Photo Challenge in the new year, I went looking for ideas that might be appropriate for this auspicious occasion. Going from the old to the new reminded me of passing from one room into the next, which led me to the theme of Portal. Of course, there are many types of portals to be found around the world, which makes me look forward to discover which among them will appear in your posts. Your challenge is to share some portal that might be representative of the great adventure that lies ahead. Unleash your creative eye and let your mind open the portal… Most of all, have fun!!”
One result of all this rain: endless portals into the unknown…
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Common (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2019/12/17/tuesday-photo-challenge-common/).
“I have to admit that I struggled a bit with this week’s theme, as the holidays are also coming up and I wanted to leave some options for next week’s theme. However, after some looking around, I thought that it might be interesting to go for something rather Common… Whether it is the every day, common object or the things that you have in common, or crossing the town common… This is a word that allows for plenty of creative directions to be taken, so feel free to take the one that speaks to you! I look forward to reading all of your posts on this theme and seeing what path you have chosen on this theme.”
I do like taking pictures of the common, especially when we are out and about running errands…
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Mist (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2019/12/10/tuesday-photo-challenge-mist/).
“Wow, wow, wow! You really brought it for last week’s theme of Glow! That was amazing! Thank you very kindly! Some of your posts provided me with a hint for this week’s theme, leading me to come up with Mist. Of course, Mist is more than just a fog, as it can also be a gentle, diffuse rain, which can provide very interesting light play. Unleash your creative brains and let them play with the theme to come up with those cool ideas that float around! Have a lot of fun with this theme and make sure that no possible opportunity is missed (yes, I know…punny!)”
We do get a lot of mist around here, especially at this time of year…which is ironic why these shots are from Cypress on the Saskatchewan side (and not Victoria). Also, walkin’ the line into fog…
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Fuzzy (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2019/09/17/tuesday-photo-challenge-fuzzy/).
“After your highly Focused approach of wonderful and amazing posts, I figured we go in the opposite direction for this week. How about going for something a bit Fuzzy for this week’s theme? Of course, there are lots of fuzzy objects that we enjoy in our lives, such as that teddy bear, plush animal or peach, as well as some that we might not enjoy… That fuzzy growth on bread might not be a good indication of its fitness for consumption. There are numerous directions that you can take for this challenge, and all’s fair, as long as you have fun with whatever Fuzzy creativity strikes you’re fancy. Can’t wait to see what will be appearing from you!”
Fuzzy Elliot – in more than one way!
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Overhead (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2019/08/06/tuesday-photo-challenge-overhead/).
“The inspiration for this week’s theme came from there… As I often take the time to look at things around me from a different angle, I thought that Overhead might make a good theme. Of course, you can feel free to interpret the theme in any direction that you may wish, as the word has multiple meanings in the English language! So, I hope that your overhead will be minimal in looking at what lies overhead this week, as you come up with some creative views and interpretations of the world around you! Have fun with this theme and definitely think out of the box!”
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Round (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2019/03/05/tuesday-photo-challenge-round/).
“I have to admit that I was surprised that I hadn’t used Round as a theme before, as it seems to be a natural! Of course, now you can make the rounds with great posts, of all shapes! Just think what a great Round up your contributions will make! (yes, that was punny). Have a lot of fun with this theme and let your creative minds kindle the fires of your imagination!”
A little round peeking through…
Here is Dutch Goes the Photo’s (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net) Tuesday photo Challenge. This week’s topic is: Challenge (https://dutchgoesthephoto.net/2018/12/11/tuesday-photo-challenge-challenge/).
“The holiday season is more than a time of celebration for many; however, for some among us, it can be a difficult time. This thought led me to the theme for this week’s challenge: Challenge. My hope is that this theme will provide you with an interesting Challenge that stretches your creative muscle and gives you a break from the season’s demands to be playful, even whimsical! Please take this theme in whatever direction, with which you feel most connected.”
Some days are more challenging than others. That’s why there are decks, bbqs and wine!
