Here we have again the recurrent photo challenge theme: Pick a Word. As usual you have a possibility to choose between five different words, or do several or even all together (in one post). Here are my five examples for:
I hope that this challenge has just the right amount of “challenging” for you and that you’ll enjoy it in 2017 too.
To join the challenge you are supposed to:
Make a photo post post featuring one or more photos on one (or all) of the provided words, before next Thursday.
Link to this challenge post, and tag your post #thursdaysspecial
Leave a comment under this post (pingbacks are not comments).
Details about the photos:
#1 was captured one hot summer on Dugi Otok island in Croatia.
#2 is a detail of a fence of the botanical garden in Zagreb, Croatia.
#3 is a random shot of a repetitive pattern of a plant.
#4 is not my cow. You could have seen her in monochrome before
#5 is a glass of Amaro that I drank on the shores of lake Orta a few summers back.

For today’s TS I am challenging you to post a photo with a backlit subject.
Backlight photography emphasizes shapes so you will want to look for subjects with strong silhouettes. They may be captured in natural light like in my photo, or with an artificial light source. As always the choice is yours. Just make sure it is in colour and posted before next Thursday.
My photo is showing the tallest lighthouse in the Adriatic shot against the setting sun. There are 45 lighthouses in Croatia, but many of them are no longer needed due to advances in technology. Instead, they have been turned into holiday apartments and are a big hit in Croatian touristic offer. This one is called Veli Rat and you may find it on the beautiful island called Dugi Otok (which would translate as Long Island).

Attention everybody! I’ve started collecting your expressions of interest to host guest photo challenges in 2016. There are already four challengers penciled in for January, February and March, but I desperately need a courageous blogger to host the B&W photo challenge on a Sunday (any Sunday) in January. Think of a theme you’d like to do and let me know, please.
Bear in mind that anyone can participate. You don’t need a “serious” camera or advanced knowledge of photography. It is all about ideas, creativity, sharing i.e. seeing the world around us.
