Does anyone fancy doing a 52 week photo challenge? If there is interest it could be based on this 52 week challenge and I can look at updating the Facebook page if people want to share them that way; the Facebook page is at K-F Facebook.

What is it?

It's not a competitive challenge, it's a challenge in the sense of challenging oneself. There are a series of weekly themes (see below) to be the creative challenge each week.

No thank. Too much work for me.  ;)

It is a bit daunting RDRO! But maybe you can take few of the 'themes' and see what you get. You don't need to post them; it's an entirely personal thing.

Hi CK - just noticed those sky shots of London - crikey your drone was high - wouldn't it have got in the way of the Planes ??   ;)   Fantastic pics well done.

That 52 week challenge would take me 10 years  ::)  but go for it ! I think we all admire your skills. I've passed it on to some Friends. ATB

Ha! Luckily the drone had a pilot and 'British Airways' painted on the side: I was on my way into City airport.

They are busily extending City to create a taxiway beside the runway: I've always hated the mad charge down the runway to get to the turn area for take-off. It is a very busy airport now; almost entirely business and permanently packed. Great views of London though - always a thrill.

I don't even understand some of the themes!

To be honest I don't either. There is an explanatory text that goes with each theme which makes it a little clearer. I am hoping I can set up the calendar with the text each week: I have put in a few weeks to test if it works.

Dear CK,
I just have seen this topic right now.  :o
You began post this topic on Dec 18, so it was the first week , right? <My BD is 17 > ;D
Well, today is Feb 16, so it begins 10th week , then we should post a photo about HAPPINESS , isn't right?
I like taking photos although I'm not a good shutter but just for memories because I didn't have a camera when I was young so only opened big eyes to store them but now we have it with mobile phone.  ;D

This topic may challenge me, Thanks.

I think you can start whenever you like. I have not had the time to devote to it as much as I would like, but I hope I can really get into it, and make the Facebook page better so you can put your pictures there too.

Thanks CK,

I took some photos on Dec Jan Feb , maybe everyday.  ;D
Then I checked photos which one is matched to topic in a week.

WEEK1: STUDY,
I took tourists visit Jim Thompson Farm and they got knowledge of Thai silk.

WEEK2: SUNRISE,
I worked part time at a restaurant and resort namely "Suantung LungPee" before New Year.
They gave me a room to stay for 10 days and I woke up early then walked around to get fresh air and had seen SUNRISE.

WEEK3: NATURE,
NATURE always makes funny.

Great photos Pookie; I really enjoyed seeing them, and I am looking forward to seeing more!

I like the silk one; I once visited a silk merchant in Surin with a colleague. He was based in an old silk house/ factory, and the place was amazing!

Very cute Pookie! Reminds me of when my children were little.

Having reached week 11 with a distinct lack of success, here's my first one. If I'm right, we are on Leading Lines.

Week-11" border="0

I wanted to get the image with two trains (this is the end of Shepherd's Bush Central Line platforms, where the two are very close together). I was too slow and missed it!

I was staying in the Dorsett on Shepherds Bush Green. This is the bar area in the lobby. Not sure these count as Leading Lines:

wow... Hello CK ... were you in photo?
Thanks for very nice photos sharing and inspire me.
 
mm... I am thinking that I don't travel all week how I can get a good photo.
It becomes more challenge week , doesn't it?  ???
When I had chance to travel , I took many photos.
I should bring them back to display to others or try to get one for the challenge week.

I got a Portrait photo yesterday. I'm sorry to cheat it but I want this model and I don't know I can meet it in Portrait week.  ;D
I did many Leading Line photos, I think. I'm doing a difference in kitchen, if it works.  ;D

Yes, that's me. I put it on Facebook and got so much abuse from my 'friends'..! :)

Thanks for very nice photos sharing and inspire me.

Thank you K Pookie, and thanks to you also.

I agree. We will have to look for things near to us.

Remember that things that seem ordinary to you seem very different to other people. Just seeing things like the food you eat, where you go shopping, relaxing with friends etc. can be very interesting as it your world and you are giving us access to it.

I don't think you should worry about 'cheating'! I will have to do the same thing! It is just a learning experience, and just thinking of the right photo for the challenge is a great creative exercise.

Keep going Pookie! Great work!
