Link Button: Spotted Photo Theme inspired by iHanna Last year I had a blog series of photo themes that I called Spotted Photo Theme. As I wrote about my summer photo project, The Pink Flower Mission, I started to think about past themes and decided to give the spotted-themes-idea a try again.

Let’s geek out on photography! If you love photography, documenting and sharing what you create – then you are most welcome to join me as I post a photo theme spotted in my personal photo collection! Look through your own photos and come back to the newest photo theme here and post a link in the comments!

I will be starting in the beginning of August with animal/critters (I will be posting mine around the first of the month, in August on Sunday August 3 – in case you want to join me on that date or later you’re most welcome).

I love photo themes

I love spotting themes in my creative work. Sometimes I pick a theme to work with, sometimes it’s like the theme picks me. An idea/image shows up and comes back several times during a period of time. Themes that are not consciously chosen are often revealed later when I look back through my photo folders. These themes, conscious or unconscious, often occur in my photographs and by collecting some of them into one big photo post on my blog I hope to inspire you to: take more photos, look for (and work with) themes, to select some and show your own photographs in a special blog post! Think of it like curating a photo book: pick favorites that you think work together in some way….

Feel free to join me, these are my ideas and what I’m thinking of right now:

Upcoming Spotted Photo Themes

  1. August: Show your love for Animals
  2. September: Photos of your Favorite Color
  3. October: Nature – what elements or views of nature are you photographing most often? Do you return to the ocean, to flowers, to the forest, to looking up at the sky – or something else? Try finding a nature theme for October!
  4. November:
  5. December:
  6. January: Darkness and Light

Taking suggestions for November and December. Maybe you have themes you want to show off? Maybe something creative for November and something Wintery or Christmassy for December, or what do you think?

Also check out my first intro post here if you want to. Will you join me? Say yes!

Update on Nov and Dec

  1. November: graffiti (street art, found posters, etc) – suggested by Tammy
  2. December: Going with a Christmassy Theme (pick a favorite thing/idea about Christmas and compile photos of that one) – suggested by Judy
  3. January: Darkness and Light
  4. February: Vehicles (pick your favorite, I’ll probably go with bikes) – bicycles suggested by Tammy
