a word a week photo challenge: context

A little harder this week. They say a picture paints a thousand words. What story does your photograph tell?

What do people/animals/things wait for? what do they do while they’re waiting? What are you waiting for – pop over here to see what other people have found waiting a round the world.

Weekly photo challenge: grand

The Weekly photo challenge has hosted a “Big” photo challenge in the past, but for this week’s challenge, they want us to consider not just the size of something, but also that special element: the “wow factor” of a scene or subject that makes a picture so stunning. That magical quality we’re always out looking for and so excited to capture with our cameras.
