A blog about books. Oh, and some other stuff too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Movement.  How do you show movement in your photos? This photo choice is a very deliberate show of movement through the camera lens and the blurring lights, but how else can you show movement of objects, or of the action that’s happening in your picture? 

This week’s theme kind of made me giggle. It’s been so hot here in Toronto that even the thought of movement sends many people into the shivery sweats 🙂 People are actively avoiding moving these days, so as a reminder to ourselves that summer is supposed to be filled with enjoyment and action, here’s a few photos to remind us:

I was fortunate to teach in Australia, and accompanied some of the students to a swim carnival – essentially a swimming competition between neighbouring schools. What better way to show movement than the committed actions of these wonderful swimmers?

Diving in…

Keep going! You’re almost there!

As well, we recently celebrated Canada Day, and with that comes the excitement of FIREWORKS. I’ve always loved fireworks, and will travel for the best fireworks around … unless they are hosted by my friends Liz and Steve. Then, it’s an auto-attend. Steve puts on a great show in his own front yard, and the neighbours will come out to enjoy his efforts. Thanks, Steve, for making our Canada Day that bit more special each year.

Starting out – first strike!

Boom! Bam! Ooooh…. ahhhh….

Pretty! More, more!

Despite the heat, get out there and get moving!

Share a picture that means MOVEMENT to you! 

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS
