WOW (WORDS OF WISDOM) – NEW PHOTO & words CHALLENGE

CHALLENGE ALERT!

I am starting a new photo challenge (in addition to the current one Pick a Word). It is about words again, words and photos. It is called Words of Wisdom and it will run one Wednesday every month (weeks will vary).

For this challenge you are supposed to write a quote either by someone famous, or your own and illustrate it in images taken by you. You can use proverbs, funny quotes, whatever you like. Any quote on any subject to be illustrated through your photos.

I hope you’ll find this fun. I know that I look forward to seeing what you will come up with.

For the first post I chose three quotes about reading.

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it. ~ Oscar Wilde

Reading is thinking with some one else’s head instead of one’s own. ~ Arthur Schopenhauer

and one of my favourites:

We’re drowning in information and starving for knowledge ~ Rutherford D. Rogers (noted Yale librarian)

And here is a photo that comes along.

Thursday’s Special: Of the night

This night scene is the first photo I took on my trip to Italy this month. The historic centre of Bologna was welcoming and the rain did not spoil the excitement of discovering a new location. Freshly bathed streets were glistening, and the light coming from the old towers gave the whole square a golden reflection.

The church in the photo is San Petronio. I loved the way it looked on that rainy night, so I visited it the following morning, but could not take any inside photos (and not for the lack of trying!!).

If  you are curious to see more pictures from my walk in Bologna, make sure to come back next week 😉

For those who want to take part in my non-challenge Thursday’s Special, please post a photo/s taken at night-time (or any other time of day, since you are not bound by a theme) and link it to this post. More information on this non-challenge can be found in the original post. A click on the bellow widget will take you to the previous TS entries and links.

A Walk Around a Lake for Jo

 

(I’m sorry the music has a 40 sec delay)

This Monday I am taking you for a walk around Lago di Piano in northern Italy, close to the border with Switzerland.

It all started the night before when I was standing high above Lugano Lake on mountain Sighignola on a spot called Balcone d’Italia. I did not conform to visiting just Lugano Lake and the town, but was determined to explore some smaller lakes near by. The view lead me to Lago di Piano, a small jewel of a lake that was proclaimed a Nature Reserve. The plan was made to visit it the following day some time before sunset. Here is what I saw:

 

 

 As every Monday Jo is taking us for a walk; today it is a fun and picturesque walk beside River Wisla in Poland. Please visit her blog and see what her readers are offering this Monday.

Thursday’s Special: A Snap i.e. Artu

Artu was kept in a cage on a hill overlooking Varenna on lake Como. The sun was coming down  and the bars were blocking the view, so I had to come very close. Unlike Regina who screamed her lungs out at the site of me and other impertinent tourists, Artu just gave me this dumbfounded look.

**About Thursday’s Special: It is a ‘non-challenge’ challenge that appeals to bloggers eager to wake up their creativity and show their own ideas and interpretation of the world. I invite everybody interested to join in. There are no themes, titles and techniques set for your expression, there are no limits and restrictions (no red tape whatsoever). The only thing required is to post a photo post on Thursdays entitled “Thursday’s Special: (your theme/title)” (as explained in my Thursday’s Special introductory post), to provide a link to my Thursday’s Special post, and to leave a link to your post in the comments section of my post. If you like Thursday’s Special widget, feel free to grab it and post it on your blog.
