    • Hello C, I’m on a break, challenges will be resumed next Thursday. The theme will be “abstract”. You may post a photo of something abstract link to my Thursday’s Special post and leave me a link. When I come back next week I’ll tell you about hosting guest photo challenges. There is a subpage here where you can check out some of guest challenges posts. They can be in colour (on Thursdays) or in B&W (on.Sundays). Thank you for your interest. I’ll check out your blog when I come back.


      • Thank you!
        New to blog world and all up for trying new things.
        I’ll keep a look out for abstracts 🙂

    • Dear Marsha, I had to postpone some challenges for February, and this happened with “surreptitious photography” too which is now scheduled for 14th February. Thank you so much for your early submission. I love your approach to the theme, and I will link to your post with an image preview on 14th February when the challenge is officially on. Thanks again 🙂
