Wednesday walk challenge and Steem Basic Income Give away

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

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

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

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, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

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

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.


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

All Spruced up for the 4th of July celebration

OK before you say it, I know the 4th Has passed, but I got this shots before the 4th, or maybe on the 4th and thought they would make a cool mix for a Wednesday Walk post

Now if your thinking the shots are of people dressed up for the 4th, Sorry then I have misled you, let's start up with a street sign all spruced up which gave me a chuckle and I had to get s shot to share

One thing I feel is done so well here is so many properties fly the national flag proudly on their properties, more so that I have seen ever in any other country I have been to and this house is a good example of that, and also has some nice decorations and detail on the porch.

And this Property which happens to be next to the one in the previous shot has not only one but three flags waving proudly

And lastly where a flag used to always fly but not at the moment, the Flag at Point Rock I believe it is called, the flagpole is that it was recently deemed as failing and does not fly the flag anymore, people are wanting it replaced and there is a talk of a fundraiser online to raise money for it, but in the meantime some has put a small flag up beside the flagpole.

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to send some Steem Basic Income shares to 5 people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. @bigtom13, @enosh, @boddhisattva, @shaunf, @rem-steem, to all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk . And a special bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @leylar,

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.

I love to see our flag any time, anywhere and I also love the banners on those beautiful homes. Go USA! The flag on the rock would look amazing and I sure hope it will get replaced. I have a friend who is so patriotic that if she is driving and hears the National Anthem playing, she will pull over, get out of the car and stand with her hand on her heart until the end. Crazy!
I finally found the time to post my walk.

I do love seeing the flags waving proudly in this country I have traveled a lot and I can not think there is any country that compares to the Patriotism shown here with the flags waving proudly all over.
I have a feeling that Flag o the rock will be rep[laced for sure people are so proud of it and if the city doesn't fund the replacement I am confident the people of the city will :)

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk this week :)

Hi @tattoodjay,

I want to nominate you in a contest to join @ntopaz - a dapp for art we have here. I do not notice you having used it before and that is a requirement, so let me know if you have posted there in the past.

I've used it, it's easy and the photos come out very well. You will just need a one photo post and to drop a link in their discord. No future requirement, but of course they hope you will stay on. They have good upvotes if they like you work.

@dswigle is my other nominee, so I hope you will agree.

I will do a post in day or two, reviewing the site and nominating you if you will do it :)

Take care, Sharon

I am pretty sure i have never used nTopaz, I have hear dit mentioned a few times and seen posts using the tag, but honestly i have never taken the time to look into it

YEs if you just tell me what I need to do I would be willing to check it out and do what is needed so you could nominate me

Awesome! TY! It's easy and my post will also be a review to let you know more about it. It's not hard at all :)

Thanks Kindly and i loved your post having flown in and out of Changi Airport May times it is great to see it now

I love the first one, so colourful!! I'm back for this week and here's my walk! Thank you @tattoodjay.

Thanks i just saw your walk thanks so much for joining again :)

Thank you for your great comments too.

MY pleasure :)

That is so true about Americans and their flag! Although, it was nothing like that in my neighbourhood on July 1st. However, I am sure they were houses in some ares with Canadian flags. Great shots of course! These are very beautiful beech houses 😊

Ohh yah I love the beach houses here, I would love one but they are way way way out of my budget lOL

I bet they are! Let's hope the Steem will go rapidly up in couple of years and you will be able to buy one, lol.

LOl that would be great but I would be happy even if it was just enough to supplement my income when I retire I am not that worried about a big fancy house

I was just kidding, but I know what you mean 😊

That decorated sign is amusing.

It was such a cool find ;)

CoolI look forward to seeing it and yes I had a nice and quiet 4th Just what I needed :)

I managed to post my wednesday post...Thursday is already on the door though here in my country!

Thanks so much and do not worry I do not get to stick on anything with the Wednesday Walk :)

It's Wednesday again! Lovely walk photos!

Thanks Kindly :)

Great post and photos Jay! I love to see the American flag flying too! Those are some beautiful properties there. I hope they are able to raise enough money to replace the flagpole at the "Rock"! 💖

Thanks and the houses by the beaches here are so nice I will never own one they are way way out of my budget but I love walking by them
I am sure the flagpole will be replaced if they city doesn't do it the community will without a doubt in my mind

You are welcome Jay! They do look very expensive but it is always nice to look. I would prefer a small house on more land with a nice big barn or two. 🙂

As I get older smaller seems a lot better to me :) and a farm with a barn sounds about perfect to me

Great to see patriotic of their country on the 4th. Great looking shots of the houses. JJ.

yes for sure they do that so well here

A thoroughly patriotic #WednesdayWalk! I love how you captured the flags! and put them together for a post.

Unique presentation and I do love eclectic. You know I do!

I actually couldn't pick a favorite, they all are as they are proudly waving their flag. Thank you for taking us with you!

Upped and Steemed


And thank you fir visiting and the tip always appreciated 👍😎👍

It’s funny I was taking photos of the patriotic properties as I walked but only when I saw the stop sign did I think of this post idea 😂

Very nice old houses against the bright blue sky.

aren’t they just and with lovely beach views

Thanks @dswigle aka Aunt Tippy so kind of you :)

Some pretty awesome photos there my friend i hope your 4th of July was a good one and good to see people putting there country flag up showing respect for there country awesome :)

IT is awesome how artistic they are here with the flag standing proud all over

The times i have been to America it's something that always stands out :)

it is something they for sure do so well :)

Houses look so quaint with large verandahs, pride is what people do need in nation, flying a flag says a lot, cleanliness of the area speaks volumes!

Tats one thing i ove about this area it is always so clean, often the only other people i see on the beach when I do my morning walks are people with plastic bags cleaning up any trash left on the beach and mostly there is hardly any, I carry a bag myself and clean up what. Find
And yes I love seeing the pride in the country here it is Great to see

The dirt over here is incredible, when we go walking we also take a bag to clean up, not even a slight dent to the mess. Times have changed!

Times sure have changed all over the world, I am lucky where I live there is a lot of pride in our little city and it is for the most part kept very clean

Okay, first up - did you always have that cool Wednesday Walk footer (pun not intended...LOL) on your posts? If so, sorry for not noticing before, but it's wicked cool!

I love all the houses (and sign...LOL) dressed up for the holiday. Too bad I didn't think of it before - my hubby has a number of flags around the house, and I could've done a Wednesday walk 4th edition. Maybe I'll remember for next year... 😂

I really like that last house - it's beautifully designed and the patriotic decorations really stand out. Also, I hope the flag fundraiser is successful.

Here is my contribution for this week -

Thanks again for being such an awesome tag host. !tip steem

Okay firstly, No I didn't A friend suggested I needed a Banner for Wednesday Walk, and I said it was a good idea and I would try to make the time to make one, then his sone did one which was pretty cool and gave me the concept so I made my one up which I now used based on his ideas :)

I do love a few of the houses I that area there all beautiful and most of them huge, but way way way out of my Budget

And thanks for the tip :) much appreciated

That's wicked cool! And I'm glad my powers of observation aren't failing me... well, this time anyway...LOL! And you're very welcome. 😊

Your powers of observation are still strong 👍😎👍
