Weekly Photo Challenge: Neighbourhood

I started gathering pics for the weekly challenge but then realised it was the new Phoneography Challenge of Neighbourhood instead. So I got all confused and nearly didn’t post but it seems that Cheri doesn’t really mind if you use your phone camera or not. About half of mine are phone images and the rest my Canon. Don’t forget you can join in at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/my-neighborhood/

  1. Nice, and I love the header.
    I don’t understand the need to specify a phone photo challenge. We are all using different equipment, from phones through to very sophisticated gear.

  2. i really like your neighbourhood gilly, and i don’t have a phone camera, so glad you can use your canon as well!! the heavitree words are sublime, so much thought, feeling, such delightful images flying free like the sparrows … thanks to the yew 🙂

  3. You have a beautiful neighborhood, Gilly, and your photos are lovely. I think this IS the Weekly Photo Challenge, except they’re specifying to take photos with a phone, which I don’t even have!! So does that mean I can’t participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge anymore?? I don’t think they should specify at all. I agree with IsobelandCat!

  4. First, let me say that your header looks like it is bursting with Spring. It makes me happy to look at it. Very pretty, Gilly.
    The neighborhhod picks are fab. I thought it had to be a phone challenge so I didn’t think I’d participate. I have a phone that takes pix’s but, sadly, it is an old flip phone that I can barely figure out. I will have to get a more updated one soon. I feel like I am lagging behind.
    Your pix’s never disappoint – no matter what you’re taking them with.

  5. A beautiful town, Gilly – I love the pair of stores and the parks. (And the header full of crocus 🙂 )

    Thank you for reading the Weekly Photo instructions more carefully than I did! Like a lot of other people, I saw the “Phoneography” title, read the instructions quickly, and felt – I don’t know – shoved aside? Unreasonably excluded? It’s one thing to encourage people who don’t have real cameras, only phones, to participate; but why shut the rest of us out? (Especially those of us who just use very basic, non-photographic, cells.) I’m glad that isn’t really what they’re doing, but I think the new idea could have been presented better.

    Oh well – it isn’t fair to rant at you about it, when you aren’t the one at fault! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  6. Beautiful photos. I was surprised that it was listed it as a phone challenge–I don’t have a cell phone. Good to know they aren’t too picky and i could have joined.

    1. Hi, sorry I’m so late replying I struggle to keep up! The art work was put in situ a few years ago to brighten up a dull corner but it upset a few locals who though it was a waste of money. It celebrates one of the great trees of England, the Heavitree Yew!

I would love to hear from you . . .
