Wednesday Walk make me smile post in Soho

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Note I want to thank @bluemist for sponsoring this challenge starting from this week, due to their support I will be from next week sending out Steem to a selection of people who partake in the Wednesday walk as I will explain in the guidelines below all of the liquid rewards for this post will be shared with a selection of participants.

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

Note: I think this past week was the biggest yet for Wednesday walk with over 60 people doing posts, thank you all for joining I do love seeing the walks from all around the globe. Just a reminder I do not have rules but rather guidelines, but now that I am getting so many entries and able to give out more as a token of thanks for those that join, I will just remind people that I do ask if possible to share a few shots and a little writeup about your walk, not just one photo

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending some Steem to a selection of those who participate, please note this is a change from sending out SBI shares, as I did in the past.

Actifit

A good App that works well in conjunction with the Wednesday Walk or any day walk is @actifit, which rewards you with Actifit Tokens and Steemit Upvotes, if you use the app to track your steps and do a post of your actifit total each day.

If you do a lot of activity I do recommend you check it out

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poem,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF.
b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT
c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

So the collaboration giveaway is as follows
As well as the SBI shares normally given away from the Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenge, we will send one SBI Share each to one lucky winner who joins both challenges in one post

This weeks walk

For this week I am actually sharing a walk I did on a Wednesday all be it last Wednesday and my first photo walk of the year, the weather and being busy with things means I haven't been walking as much as normal and it was a chilly morning, but I wanted to make sure to have recent photos for this weeks post, starting with this shot showing the Jenga Building and Tower one of the World Trade Cente.

This walk took me through Duarte Square, which has this statue

Duarte square is a small Park in or borderign Soho to honor Juan Pabloe Duarte and hence why this statue is there.

Juan Pablo Duarte was a Dominican writer, activist, poet, military leader and liberal politician who was one of the "founding fathers" of the Dominican Republic. and was born on January 26, 1813, and died on July 15, 1876.
Furthe ron my walk I passed by this above a shop entrance

I know these days cobble stone streets are probably expensive and hard to maintain and quite frustrating for people drivign or cycling on them but i do love seeing them.

Weekly giveaway of shares


I have sent Steem to a few people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. this week I am sending 5 Steem to @elizacheng, @joanstewart, @cloudblade, @offgridlife, @olivia08, @iamraincrystal, @ellenripley, @joalvarez, @leeart, @steemflow,

@elizacheng will send one Steem to @dswigle


As @elizacheng and I collaborated with our Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenges

And one person is randomly drawn who joins both challenges to receive one Steem from me and this week it is @TBA

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.


unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

Is it Wednesday again and have I forgotten about the WednesdayWalk again? I think, not only my bones feel old, also the little something between my ears seems to shrink 😉

The Jenga Building looks cool and very interesting and I love cobblestones. The monochrome version looks great.


I would be quite !DERANGED if I didn't give you a !BEER and a !COFFEEA for this $trdo !ENGAGE 50 post 😉

Thanks I do tend to do most edits of cobblestones in mono does them better justice

As for Wednesday walk most of your posts involve walking so just add the tag :)

Good morning JJ 🙂

That's true, such an alley with cobblestones looks much better in monochrome. They look like you see them on old photos of cities, where most roads had such surfaces ... you're just waiting for a horse-drawn carriage to appear ;)

I forget about most almost all competitions and think I'll have to put a note on my monitor 🙂


I might be a bit !DERANGED but not only I have a !BEER for you today, but also a !COFFEEA which I have bought at the !MARLIANS !shop 😉

Ohh yeah that would be cool to one day catch a horse drawn carriage going along a cobblestone street

there are only a couple of the challenges i join regularly, and I kind of have to join the Wednesday walk since i host it LOl

———————————————————————————————————

I don't drink !BEER anymore and never have had hot drinks myself,which some may say is !DERANGED but I do share !COFFEEA` now I must pop to the !MARLIANS !shop soon to pick up odds and ends

If one engages he gets !ENGAGE 50 from me

Yes, the Wednesday walk is yours ;)
I do know some of the others and a few would be nice to join sometimes, and that's also something what I want to do this year - try to join more challenges than I did last year. So, if I joined only 3 I would have done more than 2019 😉


I might be a bit !DERANGED but not only I have a !BEER for you today, but also a !COFFEEA which I bought at the !MARLIANS !shop 😉

You can do it :) and the WW is good to join I give out about 40 to 45 Steem each week onit now :)

I wouldn't do it for the Steem, a few nice words are quite enough for me, as always 🙂

Cobble stones have become fashionable in Thailand!! Crazy architectural fashion! It’s a symbol of luxury and money! But it’s very slippery when wet!

Several years ago, the drive way to my friend’s garage was s all cobble stone. I did warn him of its danger. After one person flipped on these cobble stones, my friend had the whole drive way reconstructed!

Nice and sharp photo!

Ohh yeah cable stones can be treacherous when there wet or icy for sure

That building is just crazy. I wonder who the person is that designed it. It must be awesome to have one of those upper floors. Those streets are pretty cool too. Nice that you were able to get a shot with no people.

I would love to go and see the views from the upper floors of it, must be amazing

That cobblestone pic is my fav... but I love them all
You have such interesting walks... and your pics are really amazing <33

Here's my walk and this one helped me discover a few things, from flower names to my favourite.. what the Year of the Metal Rat will bring us all
https://steempeak.com/wednesdaywalk/@kaerpediem/a-short-walk-with-a-long-story

Thanks. Do love the cobblestone streets when I come across them and i have to edit them in Monoit does them more justice than color

Thanks I saw your post a very cool and formative walk :)

Hello Friend
today I also join your walk and I leave you a Sunday walk
happy hike
https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@txatxy/a-7-kilometer-walk-along-the-estuary

I saw your post a beautiful spot for a walk :)

if it is, the only language is to tell it, since the translator takes care of it and I don't know if it expresses what I think

Yes to me it came across very well :)

The first photo is absolutely stunning and I like cobble stone too, but I think it's more suitable for small towns.

Ohh yeah although the cobblestones are cool here in a small rural town they are even better

We have them in the town where I was born in Slovakia. By the way, I am flying there in April, I already bought ticket. I am also going to Prague in May, my sister already booked a hotel. It will lots of photos for Wednesday Walk. I can't wait 😊

I will look forward to your posts after your visits I made it to Prague once but never to Slovakia

I make sure I'll keep you busy, lol. By the way, how long ago you were in Prague?

Ohh let me see, I think it must have been around 20 years ago, a quick visit

That is a long time. Did you take any photos?

Sadly no that was inthe period of about 20 years where i was not into photograpjhy

Thank you so much! ^_^ What lovely photos indeed! Here's mine... enjoy!

Nice architecture of Jenga Building photography. And here is my entry : https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@kamrunnahar/wednesday-walk-in-the-play-ground
IMG_20191209_164136.jpg

👍🙂👍

Cobble street in sepia tone still a hit on my list giving the old world feeling in photography.

Wonderful to see how popular Wednesday Walk has become with so many new arrivals joining in, well done!

@tipu curate

Upvoted 👌 (Mana: 10/15 - need recharge?)

Ohh yeah I just have to do cobble stone streets in Mono color does not do then justice

I never though the Walk would get so popular :)

Walking relates to everyone, we all walk and now enjoy sharing what we see along the way.

yes thats very true :)

I like how all the blue reflects in in all the windows :)

Here is my post for today with more blue... - My new favourite walking spot :)

Seixal park view 7.jpg

Thanks and I can see why that is your new favorite walking spot ;)

Thank you so much for this opportunity to show the beauty in the mundane.

Thanks so much

Thanks for sharing the link a beautiful evening walk :)

My pleasure to host this and thanks for joining ;)

Oh that’s wonderful to hear that you are collaborating with @elizacheng and putting #WednesdayWalk together with #Makemesmile! Here’s my post for this week: https://steemit.com/actifit/@jayna/actifit-jayna-20200116t055914292z

Yeah the two challenges work well together I think, and I loved your post ;)

Hi @tattoodjay! Cobble stone streets are amazing and I am glad that some are still around. There is so much to see and many beautiful views there. Beautiful photos as always. Stay warm. Here is my walk which is a combination of many walks for one subject.
https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@whatisnew/wednesday-walk-ornamental-pear-tree-from-summer-to-winter

Thanks I will miss the city I think when I finish working at the end of Feb

loved your post

I am so happy that you are retiring. I am sure you will miss the city but definitely not the long commute; especially during the winter.

Thanks for loving my post. I love your #wednesdaywalk! : )

Thanks I a to am glad to have more time for my wife and family and of course for my photography :)

its my pleasure to host Wednesday Walk

Good as usual 🙂

That Jenga building is really cool. That must have been fun to design.

I really like cobblestone streets too, but they're just not all that common anymore. There's a stretch of road in New Castle that is decked out nicely with cobblestone; I ought to try to get a picture of that soon.

Ohh yeah I wonder if the architect plays Jenga nd it was his inspiration LOL

I do love cobble stone streets but the people that live and have to drive over them can hate them

It's sort of weird no longer seeing any Christmas decorations in your remarkable New York cityscape photographs @tattoodjay I keep looking for a pop of lingering red velvet from a ribbon or maybe something silver/gold on the sidewalk. Not happening. NYC cleans up quick and efficiently after decades of tidying up Times Square New Year's Eve aftermath!💪

You already stopped by and supported my #Wednesdaywalk post (thank you!). Denise likes when we keep things neatly organized in one post so I'm just going to leave my link here and skadoodle😀

https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@ninahaskin/wednesday-walk-in-texas

I have been a bit slack there are still some remnants around, I must look for them next week inthe city and get some shots :)

Thanks for leaving the link :)

That is such a beautiful cityscape shot with the sunrise! And a fine statue!
I too like cobblestone but I think I have only seen it once in my life - did make a good photo though!
Thanks for sharing and I have a #wednesdaywalk at: https://steemit.com/hive-114105/@porters/wednesday-walk-bitter-cold-brings-beautiful-rainbow-full-moon

Thanks, in NYC there are still a few areas with cobblestone streets :)

Thanks for joining the walk I loved those moon shots

When I walk the streets of NYC I put my head down and see nothing but the sidewalk. Maybe by now you know I can find things of great interest and beauty at my feet, but your posts make me want to look up and see the beauty above the ground level. Such great work. I am so glad I stumbled on this contest. Maybe next time I'll remember to also submit it as a make me smile post - I keep forgetting!
