Since the WordPress weekly photo challenge ended a few weeks ago, many bloggers are still searching for photo challenges in which to showcase their photographic talents and images.

The word “challenge” is a bit of a misnomer, as everyone is not necessarily in a photography competition, but rather, a showcase of our hobbies and talents.

The challenge lies in finding that perfect image that fits the theme of the host’s challenge. I strive to combine some of the challenges when I can.

I haven’t posted for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge in a long while! This week’s theme is Plant. In the featured image above, these sunny zinneas graced my backyard deck.

In addition to blogging photo challenges, there are other challenges on a variety of social media. I began taking part in the 2018 Summer Instagram Photo Challenge hosted by Leslie at Once Upon a Time Happily Ever After. 

This was posted recently for the aforementioned Instagram Photo Challenge, a beautiful macro shot of a rose. I love how it worked out that I could share this Instagram post and use it for the blog!

I also tried to plant some vegetables two years ago, last spring, and although the tomatoes (shown here) started out promising, they didn’t have enough juice to become a full, red tomato!

But it sure made for a nice macro image!

The newest challenge to hit the blogosphere is Lens Artists featured on four different blogs. You can check it out on fab photographer Tina Schell’s Travels And Trifles.

For a great round-up of photo challenges for bloggers, visit Cee’s Photography page.

And of course, my weekly Sunday Stills challenge.

As the saying goes, “When one door closes, another opens.” Go out and get creative!

  1. Great post and message and information! In a way, the end of the WordPress challenges meant I’ve made new friends and found new challenges and flexing of my writing/blogging muscles, so it (like most things in life, even if they may not seem that way at first), a matter of lemonade.

  2. Thank you for sharing so many great opportunities to interact with other bloggers and Instagrammers. Your rose photo is so vivid I can smell it. Took me right back to childhood where my best friend’s mom used to grow the most beautiful roses you ever did see. This one matches their beauty and is picture perfect. Hope you had a great 4th.

  3. Photo challenges are a lot of fun. They spark the imagination for new blog posts. Every Instagram post feels like a challenge to not look like all of the others.

    Macro shots really show a world of detail in such tiny things. Great photos, especially that green tomato.

  4. Thank you for the ideas! I feel that I have a lot to learn when it comes to macro photography. Something I really would like to get better at. Have a wonderful day!

  5. Thanks for the update as I didn’t know that they discontinued the photo challenge. What’s going on with WordPress? The courses are individualized, the photo challenge is over, and off goes the community interaction on a larger scale. It’s really a bad decision.
    Thanks for sharing the info on other challenges and for keeping yours alive and kicking.
    Love the macros!

    1. Thanks, Lucile, I know so many WP folks are disgruntled about the decisions. I couldn’t have grown my blog 4 years ago without those challenges and community interactions. I would love to see a contribution to Sunday Stills when you have a chance. The themes are listed on my page in advance each month 🙂


  6. I have never participated in a photo challenge. I have no need to do so. I am the man who selects my own paths. My country is so different that I love to show what I see in my quite unknown country.

    Have a wonderful day!
