PASSION: Weekend Photography Challenge


This weekend’s photography challenge is all about PASSION!

Image by Carlo Nicora

Your task is to take a photo on the theme of passion. It could be a photo of something or someone that you’re passionate about. It could be of a moment of passion (lets keep it family friendly :-)) or it come be some kind of play on words or something a little more cryptic.

So set yourself the challenge to take a ‘passion’ shot over the weekend. Once you’ve taken it – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site, tag it with #DPSPASSION so others can follow along (Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun) , then come back to the comments section below and share a link to your photo.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

    Actually took the long way home to capture a picture that would illustrate my passion. Probably not the best pic, but rain, wind and blowing sand got in the way. My passion...Black jeep on red dirt--Moab, Utah.

What do you not like about it? What could have I done different to enhance the photo? Or just some tips that might be useful in the future. -thanks

  • Peter September 30, 2009 02:28 am

    I found this challenge difficult..perhaps i am just not *Passionate* enough! And trying to decide if there was something overriding which i was passionate about was also difficult! I like so many then I finally decided on this..something which has sofar lasted 10 years and still counting

  • Jim September 30, 2009 12:22 am

    I guess I screwed up my link also... lets try again.

    Looks like my link didn't go through last time...

    "Passion for his craft"

  • Jim September 29, 2009 11:32 am

    I think many people would associate the colour red with passion and add to that a people's passion for their country. I'm here in China as the whole nation prepares for the 60th anniversary celebrations. I took this on Nanjing Lu pedestrian shopping street in Shanghai. I feel it epitomizes Passion.

  • Diana Vargas September 29, 2009 08:21 am

    Well, I'm not sure about how many pics can we submit.
    I have 2 very special pics featuring 2 of my favorite persons in my life:

    My cousin, who shows such a beautiful look when he's with his girlfriend, this was a lucky shot the first day I used my camera:

    And this is one of my best friends, who posed a few days ago for me with her cosplays. She adores her cosplays and this is a photo I took of her surrounded by her props:
    Big hugs!

  • oca724 September 28, 2009 08:08 am

    Passion to me is when an antisocial boy meets the girl of his dreams, and getting that very first kiss.

  • Jason Holmes September 28, 2009 08:04 am

    As we've said, "Passion" comes in many forms. Doing something you love, no matter the price you pay, says passion to me. The look on the face says more about passion than you imagine.

  • Shruti September 28, 2009 06:00 am

  • carmem maia September 27, 2009 11:41 am

    Romaing, I absolutely love your picture.
    My father's Uruguayan, and you're absolutely right. there's nothing sexier or more passionate than tango.

  • Snap-Smith September 27, 2009 11:07 am

    here's mine......remember that there are many kinds of passion!

  • Romaing September 27, 2009 09:49 am

    Hardly anything spells passion better than Tango !

    That shot was taken 2 weeks ago in Buenos Aires so I don't think it qualifies for the challenge, but I still felt like sharing it.

  • Lilian Lustosa September 27, 2009 09:04 am

    My passion is the sunset... at the beach....
    And with love... would be better!

    Welcome to as the zoom ring turns. LOL

  • Zim September 26, 2009 01:16 pm

    I have a passion for eyes. I love to see them in detail. Every person has beautiful eyes, each eye has its own particular charm. One of my sets at flickr is all about eyes. So here is my shot, taken a couple of days ago with my CyberShot W55. (I added some contrast with curves)

    I hope you like them :)

  • ch3ryl September 26, 2009 12:16 pm

    ...and while we are at this, allow me to post one more photo that I took on a weekend :)

    The previous one was of sunrise, this is of a sunset at a park with a thunderstorm looming near.

  • ch3ryl September 26, 2009 12:12 pm

    Nature always fascinate me. I love waking up in the morning and look out the window. Some days, the skies looks all the same, different each day yet not exceptionally outstanding. There are some days when I look through the window, and I am simply awed - all I wanted to do was to grab my camera and start shooting. Yes, that's the passion that I have to capture these moments that capture my times even before I have even brushed my teeth in the morning :)

    This photo was taken a while back, on a weekday tho'...

  • stacy ericson September 26, 2009 10:27 am

    Passion means Romance to me, and both should be FUN! A little hide and seek never hurt anybody.

  • Photographer_X September 26, 2009 08:54 am

    a passion picture

  • Filippo Giadrossi September 26, 2009 08:47 am
