I looked for months to find something that starts with X that I could take a picture of for today’s post, and I failed. The closest I could come is this rail fence with its X-shaped supports. Aside from the letter X failure, I quite like the image. I have a fondness for strong diagonal elements in my photos (here are a few examples). I also like the feeling of rugged competence it invokes. Someone knocked down a bunch of small trees, lopped off the branches, and piled them up without fasteners to make a serviceable fence. Well done, anonymous person! When civilization collapses, I want to be on your team.
You can join in on the photo challenge! Pick any image you created you can label with the letter X. If you find a xylophone or an X-ray machine, more power to you! Otherwise, how abut anything X-shaped? Here’s how to participate.
- Post an image on your own blog or website.* All types of images are welcome. If you have serious equipment and serious skills, that’s awesome! If you snap pics on your phone (like me), that’s also awesome!
- Post a comment on this page with a link back to your post. If you post a comment that includes a link to your blog, I will add a link to your post below.
- Check back over the next week to follow the links. That way you can see what other people did with the theme and join in the fun.
Olga Godim found a different solution to the X dilemma, with her custom cover based on the sound of X. Check it out here.
*Just so we’re all clear, you post your photos on your own site, which means you aren’t giving control to me or to anyone else. We’re all invited to view the images you post (and comment if your site allows for comments), but nobody has the right to use your images in any way without your permission. Got it? Great!
