From Dingle Peninsula.
I’m so sad to say goodbye to the Weekly Photo Challenges. I’ve been doing them since March 2014, and it’s been such a wonderful way to share my trips to the Galápagos Islands and Ireland. I had never thought about sharing my photography, or even really calling it “photography” as opposed to just some photos I took on vacation.
Until I saw some of the bloggers I follow posting weekly photos based on a theme, and I realized that I could do that, too. And do it in a nerdy way.
The Weekly Photo Challenge has helped me learn a lot about photography, and I’ve enjoyed doing research so I could explain a little about the photos. It also has given me an easy, regular source of popular blog posts. I always get a huge bump in views on days I post those photos. So, it’s been good for my blog, and it’s been good for me, too.
From Santa Cruz.
I’m sure I’ll still post some photos, maybe even weekly, but it won’t quite be the same. I’ve found so many cool blogs through the challenges, and I love seeing all the different takes on the theme.
For our final outing, I’m saying goodbye with two of my favorite photos I’ve posted over the years, one from the Galápagos and one from Ireland. The first photo was from the April 2016 challenge Landscape. The second is from the December 2014 challenge Gone, But Not Forgotten.
