The DL On The WPC {2011 edition}

I almost feel like one of the cool kids using acronyms but I realize that I only did to save room on the title line therefore making me anything but cool.  I think I’m fine with this.

*ahem*

Here’s the skinny on the Weekly Photo Challenge {2011 edition}:

– Same song, different tune.  One subject every week following the 2011 calendar year.

– I plan to post on Wednesdays.  Because it’s what I like to do.

– One week prior to the start, the new list of 52 subjects will be posted – but subjects will be drawn at random each week.  This gives you an idea of what to expect but keeps you on your toes.  You’ll have to tune in to le blog or the flickr group (not yet created) to see what the subject is for the next week.

– On that same day, Wednesday 12/29/10, the first subject will be randomly selected and will be “due” by Wednesday 01/05/11.  (Thanks Tom for catching my error.)

– Definition of photographer in terms of this challenge: Any person who wants to exercise their creativity through weekly assignments and has a camera.  Be it a point-and-shoot, a smart phone, or a dSLR.

– Remember, this is only a challenge.  But I do encourage you to take the photo that week.  Using photos from your archives defeats the purpose of challenging yourself as a photographer.

Stay tuned for Wednesday 12/29/10.  And that’s all she wrote.

(Does it make me sound more mysterious when I finish with “that’s all she wrote”?)

Victoria - Um… yes, I would say it makes you sound more mysterious.
I would also say that I am so excited to start another photo challenge with you! :)
Yeah!

Tom B. Taker - Woot! It is happening again. I’m down with it and will meet your challenge. I also plan to challenge your definition of “photographer.” :)

And what’s up with the mysterious closing? I feel something big must be afoot!

P.S. I think you meant 01/05/11? See? It’s always hard to adjust to a new year. :)

Shelly B - I dare to say that if you worked where the entire vocabulary is made of acronyms and acronyms within acronyms, they wouldn’t be so cool. But I digress… Yay for the next challenge :)

Melissa - Ok. I am totally in this year. But, I mean, that’s a long commitment. Hope you are prepared to stay my friend for another year!

denise:) - I’m so excited!! I’m ready this time! whoo whoo whooo!

Joan Nova - YAY! And thanks for the clarification. When I joined in belatedly last time I definitely drew on photos in my archives. That was fun to see what I actually had but I will take the new challenge based on the criteria set forth.

Brooke - Glad to see some fist pumps in the land of Internet! (I’m telling myself this to keep me entertained.) I hope you guys like the new list – I’m finishing up on the final touches so that it’s ready to fly at the end of the month. And Melissa, a weekly challenge is less ambitious than a 365 – I have faith that you will not stray.

Whitney - I watched last year, looking forward to giving it a shot this year. I hope I can keep up!!!

ShutterHubby - How do you plan to post your first photo while on a boat?

December 3, 2010 - 2:04 pm

TC - oh awesome! I’m glad you are doing one again. I only did a couple of weeks this year, but this will be perfect for a project for 2011!

Mary jo - Definitely going to have to join for 2011. I am getting a 7d from Santa -an upgrade from a Canon XSI-so would enjoy conquering the learning curve in your weekly challenge group too!

Lynda - I happened upon your photo blog a few weeks ago. I am planning to join your challenge for 2011. Enjoyed looking at your photos and I love to challenge myself… looking forward to getting to know you.

Kristi - I’m new here after stumbling across your site in hopes of finding a photography challenge for the new year. One of my resolutions is to take more pictures with my fancy new camera I spent so much money on, and I think your blog is fun and the challenge seems great. I have been told my pictures are quite nice, but I really want to push my hobby further and capture new things. I look forward to it! AND P.S. Thanks!
