Wednesday Walk make me smile post - Milford in Mono

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.

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, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

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 weeks post I am sharing a walk around Milford but for a change, I decided to go with all mono shots for this weeks walk

Starting with a shot of the old library buildign downtown, wich is now housingthe Milford Chamber of Commerce.

Since the shots are all in Mono and a couple in Sepia, and since I have always threatened to do some challenges on the wrong day, let me also make this an entry for Monochrome Monday and Sepia Saturday Hosted by @old-guy-photos :)

Another shot of what was the Taylor Library building, its grand enough I decided to share a couple of shots of it on this walk post.
This is a 3 Shot HDR image and there is a risk when you do that that if people are going past if you do not merge then correctly you can get a ghosting effect as I did here of the person running by, but I kind of liked the ghostly effect so left it as is for this shot

And a shot of the Hotchkiss Bridge which I not only went by but walked over on this walk.

Weekly giveaway of shares


I am sending 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 @ninahaskin, @hangin, @wakeupkitty, @joanstewart, @nainaztengra, @pablo1601, @philiprenelee, @gems.and.cookies,

@elizacheng will send one SBI share to @papilloncharity,


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.

I like these "ghosts" in front of the house, which looks a bit like a haunted house in my eyes anyway, so to me it matches perfectly 😊

Is Steemreply working for you its not playing nice with me today

You're welcome :)
I haven't noticed any problems - SteemReply seems to be working fine here.


A !BEER has to be cold to taste good and not !DERANGED 😉

Its working fine at home on my computer but is playing up on my apple devices

———————————————————————————————————

in days of old there was !COFFEEA and !BEER, which is kind of !DERANGED when you think about it

I know why I have no Apple device ;) lol
Restarting helps most times and also deleting the cookies and a fresh logg on, but I think you have already done that.


A !BEER has to be cold to taste good and not !DERANGED 😉

I tried all that but with no luck, now I am wondering if its related to the changes they made on Steemit, time will tell

I may not be !DERANGED but I share deranged tokens, similarly I don't drink !BEER anymore

It still works fine for me - on my notebook at work as well as on the computer at home. So unfortunately I have no idea what's going wrong.


They say that cold !COFFEEA makes one beautiful. I wonder if warm !BEER does the same with the !DERANGED !MARLIANS 😉

I just tried and its not loading onmy phone but thats OK as I am at home today LOL

That is a pretty cool building. We have one kind of similar in the town where I grew up. It is all stone and stuff like that. I think the mono edit worked out really well.

What a gorgeous view :)

Hello @tattoodjay,

Nice pictures. I liked the mono effects. A question? These effects are made with physical filters on the camera lenses or digital filters are subsequently applied in the edition with the special software programs.

Thanks for sharing your art.

Thanks and to answer your questionI shoot in color ally he time and do the Mono edits in Photoshop

Thanks.

most welcome

Very nice photos with lovely and nostalgic atmosphere!

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Love the shots of the library and the ghost runners. The library looks like a building that has more than one ghost story.

I joined your challenge this week.

Thanks again for joining the walk, and yes I would not be surprised if that old building has a ghost or two

The architecture is amazing, @tattoodjay! Beautiful #WednesdayWalk post!

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day
