Challenge of the month: June, 2019

I’ve been hearing murmurings that it would be great to get an early declaration of this month’s Challenge, so people can start thinking and plan ahead a bit.  Well, here it is.  Just remember though, that this is the challenge for JUNE, not May.  Early submissions are subject to the usual penalties, which may include shaming, mocking and derision.

This month’s theme is Something Old, Something New.  Take a photo that juxtaposes two related subjects, one old and the other new.  Lots of possibilities here – a modern tractor next to a rusty old implement; a modern bridge replacing the older one still standing beside it – you get the idea.  Human subjects don’t count, so no grandma/grandkid family portrait’s please.  Oh, and your bike of course.

The featured image, taken on Naxos in 2009 from our first tour of Greece, illustrates the idea.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Wonderful! You’re unbridled creative energy has again created a fun challenge. Can’t wait to get out and make a June Shmune picture before it’s too late.

      Ooh, unbridled creative energy! It’s the nicest thing anyone has said to me since a waiter told me I speak excellent Italian when I ordered a half liter of white wine. Mother would be so proud. I’ll have to tell her when I see her for her birthday.

    Great photo Scott. I will need some real exploring to fulfill THIS challenge. Should be fun. Like Suzanne, I will wait for June Shmune as well (this time) ;’-).

      Thanks, Tony. I was happy with it too, and still am ten years later. Hopefully this won’t be too limiting a category for folks and keep them from posting. There really are a lot of possibilities here even if you don’t have n old stone windmill in your neighborhood.
