Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past Y2-05
Santuario della Beata Vergine Maria delle Grazie; Curtatone
“Traces of the Past” is a recurring photo challenge theme on this blog (one month in colour, other in B&W). You don’t have to look far into the past for it. People from “old” continents do not have to have advantage over bloggers from the North American continent. I mostly post old architecture for this event, but please feel free to post anything from the past: be it old letters, chest box, costumes, or something from a recent past, or something that is not man-made at all.
If you want to participate in Thursday’s Special challenge, link to this post and leave me links to your entries in the comment section bellow. Yesterday I started a poll where you can vote for your favourite “seascape” entry. The poll will be opened till next Wednesday, 24 August. For further themes and events please consult the Scheduled challenges page. Have a happy and peaceful Thursday!
P.S. For those that need to be reminded of the rules:
I will not enclose links to the entries that are linked to several challenges. (Some people, however, have posts with multiple photos which they intend for several events, and that is fine as long as different photos are used for different challenges).
The idea of contest polls was conceived to enhance interaction between photo bloggers and to present their work, but if you don’t want your entry to be entered in such a poll, make sure to let me know (if possible without attacking me).
I will make sure to ban the visitors that do not come in peace, but come attacking, making false assumptions and accusations against me.
P.S.S. As of last week and after three years of absence the “like” button on this blog has been restored. When I removed it years ago, I thought that the lack of the said button (which I originally considered as a shallow interaction option and a lure for people to return “traffic” on others’ blogs) would encourage people to leave meaningful comments and incite interesting discussions. However, I have noticed that commenting is time consuming for many people who are still interested in keeping track of others’ posts, and that sometimes those bloggers that do have time to comment, use the commenting option to extend conversations to personal stuff and topics completely unrelated to posts which is not what I have expected from them. This has made me rethink the idea of the “like” button so I have reinstated it to allow people that don’t have time or a need to talk to let me know that they have been here.
Thank you for reading me.
I am glad to present links to bloggers’ contributions for this challenge:
