THEMES

 

365 Challenge – 2013 Theme List

Here is the list of photo themes. The themes in color have been completed….click on them to see the image which goes with the theme. There are 2 separate lists and I plan on using a combination of the two (with maybe a few of my own thrown in there). I do not even want to think about doing a photo a day, but each weekend I’ll tackle some themes, whether walking, bicyling, ATV’s or touring the wild west by Prius.

The start of the 2013 photoblog is here: http://photowalk.mostlyfiction.com/2013/01/06/

365 Challenge – 2011 Theme List

The 2010 Virtual Photo Walk provides fifteen “themes” for each month.  The Theme Lists are for inspiration – we are to use them however we desire to fit our needs – monthly, all at once, or not at all.   I prefer to use them as I do find that they give me inspiration… and make me look at my environment in a different way.  As I’m always snapping photos anyway, sometimes it helps me to select and work on one photo over another… because it fits a theme.

The start of the 2010 blog is here: http://photowalk.mostlyfiction.com/theme-pattern/
