A Photo a Week Challenge: Just for Fun

With the stress of lockdown (or semi-lockdown, depending on where you live), I thought we could all use another de-stressing challenge. A couple of years ago, I bought a small crystal ball to use in my photography but hadn’t gotten around to trying it out. With the tulips and early bulb flowers in bloom right now, it seems like a good time to see how it worked. It worked just great. I did make my husband worry a bit when I told him it was a standard crystal ball and not one made specifically for photography, but I also assured him that I wasn’t planning on following Professor Trelawney from the Harry Potter books into divination. I really did buy this to use for photography.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. Not that I ever take photos except for fun … As it so happens – I got a lensball as a present for Christmas and hadn’t really tried it out before spring came around. I played around with it and with my playmobil figures as well. And had a very curious and nosy helper while I set up the lensball as well as the figures. Wonderful colours of the tulips and hyacinths (?) in your photo.

  2. I absolutely love my lens ball for photography, so much fun, but gets very hot while holding if the sun is out … the main challengeI find is when I’m flying, always get flagged to go through my camera bag and have to take out the lens ball and usually explain what its for… then the security people ask a lot of questions about it and I’m on my way.. drives my husband crazy lol … I just automatically take it out now

  3. I almost started a fire with mine. I was up in Alaska last summer and set it on a dry wood pile. The thin trail of smoke began to rise.
