Treasure: Weekend Photography Challenge

Treasure: Weekend Photography Challenge

0Comments

treasure.jpegThis weekend your photography challenge is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘Treasure’.

Interpret it anyway that you wish – but the idea was suggested by a couple of readers who suggested photographing something that you view as being a treasure of yours.

It could be a person, a possession, a place or anything else. I’m sharing the shot to the right because its my son (my treasure) with one of his treasures (Buzz).

I’m looking forward to seeing some creativity on this one.

Once you’ve taken your ‘Treasure’ Images – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to them or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSTREASURE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Black and White challenge – it was a massive week with hundreds of submissions.

    Thought this might put a smile on your faces, remembering the old Indiana Jones movies... the show at DIsney we saw this week.

    My little angel comes into the living room in the morning and proudly shows me that she's playing with my rings! I (stupidly) decide to keep an eye on her and grab them when she tires of them, instead of taking them away immediately. An hour later, I realize I have no idea where my rings are. "Sophie, where are Mommy's rings?" ..."In the cookie box, Mommy." Luckily I know that she pretends these wooden puzzle pieces are cookies!

    My Treasures are my memories. Old pic is me & my Dad. Picture is 58yrs old in plastic cover that's melted to photo; so I've taken many albums and digitally photoed them. Do not want to lose photos and can not remove from albums so doing this.
