Weekly Photography Challenge – Square

There are many ways you could choose to approach this week’s challenge. You could take it literally and photograph:

  • Things which are square shaped
  • Images cropped into a square format
  • Patterns that include squares

Or you could take it a bit more off-beat and go for:

  • Squares as in city parks or plazas, and things that take place there
  • A person or thing which is a bit odd as in the old hippy phrase “He’s a square”
  • Something that happens directly, or shooting square on to the subject

Share your images below:

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
