Weekend Wonder | Dromeas | Athens

Dromeas, The Runner [1]

Dromeas, The Runner [1]

Whilst I was in Athens, I took the Metro from Metaxourghio to Evangelismos (Line 2) in search of what was described to me as a sculpture of a runner ‘made of glass’ created by Costas Varotsos, next to the Hilton Hotel.

As I neared the huge crescent shaped building I was confronted by this enormous 12 metre tall (almost 30 foot) sculpture made entirely from panes of glass and steel. It was frighteningly beautiful as the sharp edges of the glass glistened in the mid-day sun.

I used a panning effect with my camera in photo 1, to give the added illusion of Dromeas running…

Places | An Evening in Manchester

MAY 2015 THEME CONTEST – MOTION BLUR CROWDS

I was drawn to a photography contest, run by Street Hunters.net a street photography group, whilst trawling the internet this morning.

Together with WP’s daily prompt ‘indecision’ I felt I just had to write this post.

Why?

I remember waiting (well hiding really) in the doorway of a building in Manchester one evening and experimenting with various shutter speeds whilst crowds of people were walking past the wall with an apt title ‘Manchester Means The World To Me’.

Now as you know I’m not a street photographer, which you can read about here and the first question to myself was:

‘Do I submit an image in colour or black and white?’

Secondly, ‘Which image do I submit?’….

So here is the gallery of images I drew inspiration from:

Do you think I fulfilled the brief?

Which image would you have submitted to the MOTION BLUR CROWDS contest?

Blogging 101: Increase Your Commenting Confidence

Today’s task: read six posts written in response to the same prompt, and leave comments on at least two of them.

Why do this?

• It’s easier to enter a conversation when everyone has a shared experience, like responding to the same prompt.

Ask yourself:

• how did the author approach the prompt

• how was the post structured

• was there anything creative or original that you could take inspiration from

• did they interpret it in a way that could have never occurred to you

…will duly read and comment for today’s assignment!

Blogging 101: Make A Prompt Personal

Today’s assignment: publish a post based on your own, personalized take on a blogging prompt.

• Prompts are invaluable for when writers’s block hits

For today’s prompts, click here: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/places/

‘Places’…transports me back to my travels, explorations and adventures in Spain last year. Little did I know that a two week holiday in the Costa del Sol would lead me stay almost a year to explore many beautiful cities. I felt the time was right to buy a holiday home in the sun, but where?

On the coast, up in the mountains or in the city? That was the question.

So with many stories, photos and ideas, I’m finding it tough to get started, hence the need for this online course….!

Walking along the beautiful promenade in Benalmadena and admiring the view,  I love the way the sunset adds effect to the reflection on the inlet on the sandy beach…

Blogging 101: Build A Better Blogroll

Today’s assignment: create a blogroll to share a few links you love.

Why do this?

• It tells readers more about yourself

• When other bloggers see you referring them traffic, they’re likely to drop in on you!

If you prefer not to have a sidebar, try a permanent ‘Links & Resources’ page.

There are literally hundreds of blogs that I enjoy reading, mainly travel and photography…

I will create a ‘links & resources’ page in due course

Today’s assignment: write a post that builds on one of the comments you left yesterday. Don’t forget to link to the other blog!

Why do this?

• It helps other bloggers find you!

Every single blog I read on the  Blogging101 course has contributed to how to present myself and what I intend to do with my (photo)blog.

The person who inspired me to leave a comment was:
