Wednesday walk and make me smile 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

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,
On the third Wednesday of the month out two challenges will collaborate so if you combine the two into one post you have double the fun

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 I am sharing some shots I took on a walk through Central Park, near the Zoo, Sort of Animals at the zoo except there are no real animals in this post

Starting with this shot of the Dinosaur they have there at the moment, I thought it was pretty cool and will share a full shot of it later in the post

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. @zekepickleman, @dswigle, @annephilbrick, @boddhisattva, @kaminchan, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk . And a bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @fitinfun,

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.

You're lucky it's not a real Dino because... your wednesday walk would have taken a bit more than 5minutes 😂

LOL that walk was about an hour long, but if it had been a real dinosaur and i was that close to it maybe it would have been a lot less than five minutes LOL

An hour?!?
Ok, just admit you've been busy... playing with the monkeys and the bell... C'mon, be honest, I know you! 😉

On a sidenote: Maybe I should try Actifit... but what kind of phone do you use? I didn't try before because I'm whole for samsung, phone & watch, and as such an avid user of the Samsung Health app... but of course that one doesn't cryptonise me 😃

Actifit works fine on Android infact I think there is more features for android than Apple
Hang in Samsung switch from android for there watch didn’t they I used to be a Samsung user but switch to Apple a few years back

And lol well the walk fir these photos was five minutes the hour or so was to the office afterwards

As for the monkeys and bell I am not as young as I used to be and could not climb up there lol

It did have a Jurassic park feel to it but a good thing that unlike Jurassic park these ones were ot alive LOL

Thanks for joining the walk off to visit your post now

Oh! Someone already said, Jurassic Park. LOL I should have read these first!

That’s fine I always read the post but seldom read others comments and for most posts I think that’s better that way it’s a genuine comment on the persons post and what it brought to mind
I don’t think it’s a problem if I few feel and say the same thing


Oh, that is good!! :) I rarely read the other comments before I make my own! Hey!! You were giving up the T thing.

Shame on you!

I still have a few SBD so dont have to give it up yet but I will run out soon LOL
I do the same sometimes depending on the post I may after I comment read others but thats rare to be honest

Terrific post and photos Jay!! The colors really pop on the dinosaur photos and make me feel like I'm right there seeing them! I do love the one photo in black and white. It gives it a real old timey look and looks great!! 💖

Thanks they were cool finds on that walk ad that shot just cried for B&W I think :)

You are welcome and I agree...looks great in B&W!! 💖

Wish I had read this before I posted or I would have written more for smiles and entered both. Next time!

Anyway, cool zoo. I would love to have that eagle in my own garden.

Hey man! Awesome idea, I love it! I might need to do a dedicated Wednesday walk post, though, since only the first 5 tags actually work (for example, this post is not found in actnearn). Also you misspelled wednesdaywalk and marlians in your tags.

Thanks and thanks for pointing out the misspelling I clearly was still half asleep not he train when I moved this post to busy so I could use more tags LOL
I fixed the spelling of both but wondering why I am bothering using more than 5 tags if only the first 5 actually work, I may as well go back to just using 5 I guess

Thanks also for te beer

Yeah, I just discovered that this morning...don’t understand the point of allowing 10 tags when they don’t post. So lame, your post is not even showing in your tag. LOL

That is crazy,, I just changed the tags so my tag is in the first 5 and dropped a few this just is so confusing at times, I am wondering should i just go back to using 5 tags and keep it simple LOL

Wowzers! That closeup of the dino totally ROCKS! Great detail and when I first scrolled to it, for a split second it seemed disturbingly lifelike! 😂

I actually managed new photos this week!

And as always, thanks for hosting this, @tattoodjay - !tip steem

The dinosaur was so cool to come across on that walk
Funny thing is the same thing happened when I was preparing the post when I scrolled it fooled my eyes or brain into the feeling it was moving

Totally my pleasure to host this 👍😎👍

Thanks kindly for the tip

My grandsons would love that dinosaurs, it loos quite real too! I really love that last shot; sort of Jurassic Park, lol. The monkeys are cute too 😊

Ohh yeah I think most kids would like the dinosaurs 🦖 I know I am still a big kid at heart and I did think it was so cool to see

The light in the last shot made me edit it to try and bring out a Jurassic park feel 😎

What a great shot of the dinosaur! He looks a little like out of Jurassic Park, doesn't he? I am not sure that fence will keep him in!!!

I loved the mono shot, it really caught my eye, but, my second favorite was the closeup of the monkeys. :)

Great #WednesdayWalks!!!


Here is my link:

The dinosaur 🦖 was a cool thing to come across I must say it made me smile 😊 yes I know I am still a little kid at heart luckily he was very docile and stayed on his side of the fence so I was able to safely get away

Now those monkeys and the bell also tickled me and it always does if I pass that way I look up to see them

Thanks for the link such a sweet post 👍😎👍

For once I thought I would drop the post like I'm supposed to. Even after you already commented.


Thanks for the support, always!

Always my pleasure to support you you one of the most real and kind people on here ;)

Thanks @dswigke for the tip 👍😎👍

Nice post of Central Park animal sculpture photography.

Thanks kindly 👍😎👍

Howdy JJ! The amazing sights never cease in NYC do they? Remarkable.

Ohh yes always new things to see, someone suggested and I just decided to do a series of posts of the tallest buildings in the city many of them are new ones, maybe a while to get around them but its a project :)

Oh that sounds very cool. I didn't know they were still building major skyscrapers. I know when they built the new World Trade Center some people didn't think that we even had the ability to build a major building like that anymore.

Ohh this past couple of years they have bene building more than ever 1 World trade Centre is still the tallest, but the empires state building which was the third tallest only a year ago I believe is now or soon will be 7th highest with new ones going up, many of them wont be opened till next year or later but have already topped out in construction so they make the list

Wow, very impressive, that is good to hear that we can still build them and that we haven't fallen far behind the rest of the world. I guess it might be foreigners hired to build them though!

There are some that work construction that come into the city on the morning train with me and thy are American through and through :)

yay! That's good right? lol.

Ohh yeah for sure :)

I bet all the kids love that dinosaur! I love your walks!

Ohh yes I am sure the kids love the dinosaur after all I am still a big kid at heart and I loved it lol

Have a great day

I can imagine! When my kids were little, they used to drag me to anywhere that had dinosaurs to look at. They had quite a collection of toy ones too!

Yes i had a few, ohh and dragons as well LOL

I remember my sons used to love dragons too. Anything mythical or mysterious fascinated them !

My Stepson still has a few collector editions ones and he is in his mid 30s

My son (in his 40s) in Atlanta has all his childhood toys in storage, so I imagine she has some collectibles there too!

That’s cool some of them may be valuable now

The sculptures for the zoo are interesting but that dinosaur is amazing! It looks like it should be at a theme park though. So many things to see in Central park. Lucky you! : )
Here is mine:

Thanks for the visit
That dinosaur was so cool to come across 😎
Thanks for joining the walk this week

It is a cool dinosaur.
I was more than happy to join the walk and I was happy that finally posted my walk on Wednesday instead of Fri, Sat, Sun...LOL!

LOL but you know I am very easy going any day is fine for the post :)

Love that Rhino Dinosaur very clear texture with a awesome lush green background :)

I was lucky it had rained overnight which brought out those lush greens was just the right time to be there :)

That rain certainly spruces things up :)

Ohh yes for sure I love walks just after the rain, well in more natural places it doesn’t do much for the city LOL

Yep that after rain certainly does justice to nature and i love walking in the parks catching those raindrops of nature after the rain :)

I to love that am looking out the window right now I was up early but the rain was coming down so havent had my morning walk yet, hoping the rain stops soon it should have stopped an hour ago according to the forecast, but as often is the case they got it wrong and its still raining

You can never trust the forecast mother nature does as it pleases well i hope it did stop and you got out for your walk :)

Ohh yah I always joke I got into the wrong job I should have been a weather forecaster nobody expects them to get it right LOL
It rained on and off most of the day so I only got some around one shop and a supermarket, but it was probably good to take it easy today

Clock tower definitely my favourite photo today, my boys would have loved the dinosaur which looks pretty authentic.

Sorry I always appear to forget to cross post here, I know you found the post already... thanks for the fun always taking everyone outdoors Jay.

I do love the clock tower, but my inner child also love the dinosaur :)

And thank you for joining the walk as you know I do love walks on beaches :)

Thank you so much for hosting this event, @tattoodjay and to @elizacheng for the sbi - so awesome of you both.

Here is my LATE entry for this week. I forgot the tag and to stop by, but at least I posted it lol. I will do better next week for sure :)

I just saw your post now thanks for joining the walk and Have a great day

I just saw your post
Now thanks for joining the walk
And Have a great day

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Haha! I will be more organized next week, I hope!

No worries have a good weekend ;)

Make me Smile Collaboration - A good idea. Do I need a special tag for this. Or just need a phrase "Make Me Smile" ?

I think the tag is makemesmile and yes the two work well together

Well, next Wednesday we'll see how they work :-))
I notice here that some tags do not work after 3 positions.

Yes I have noticed that recently as well

I will say even more ... Even the first tag needs only the one to whom it is addressed. You put a tag, then follow it and you don’t see your entry in the general list of tags. Then why are they needed at all :D

Yes it is crazy with the tags, I was using quite a few of them but now I am limiting how many I use and being very careful which are the first three I use

I always want to put more ... :-))

Me to but if any over 5 dont even do anything its a waste of time I guess but being limited ot 5 is annoying

Good thing that big dino looks like a plant eater! :-)
Awesome to see such a critter! I like the eagle statue
it looks much older than the dinosaur!

Ohh yes a relief it was a plant-eater and I was safe :)
and for sure that eagle statue has been there for a lot longer ;)
