Wednesday walk challenge and Steem Basic Income Give away

Before I get into my Wednesday Walk Post let me remind people today is SPUD ( Steem Power Up Day) Started by @streetstyle and you can see his latest post about it and the prizes here (https://steempeak.com/spud/@streetstyle/24-hours-left-before-spud4-becomes-official-a-call-to-all-steemians-steempower-blockchain#@streetstyle/pvgrak) show your support for steem and Power up today which I will be doing shortly

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.

Actifit

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

This weeks walk in Battery Park

I am sure this first shot of a piece of art gets many a chuckle from people that see it

This next shot is of the Eagle in the East Coast Memorial in Battery Park

And this is the New york Koren War veterans memorial

This monument honors military personnel who served in the Korean War (1950-1953). The memorial, dedicated in 1991, was designed by Welsh-born artist Mac Adams and is notable as one of the first Korean War memorials erected in the United States.

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 to, @bluemoon, @owasco, @ladyyunajay, @jerrytsuseer, @sgbonus, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk . And a bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @olga.maslievich,

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.

Yes, I did think it was something else, but not what you are probably thinking. I thought they were cannonballs since it is Battery Park! I was thinking historically about the fort that was there.

Well. Am glad to say it was not only me thinking that from other comments LOl

But your Cannonball idea makes a lot of sense with the location I had not thought about that

Lol, it seems like you are in good company based on the other comments.

How funny! I thought cannon balls too until i clicked on the post!

Yes it does seem that way LOL

I wanted to participate, it is a challenge that fits very well with what I like to do, you had a great idea!

I love walking as you may have noticed especially since my knees do not like me running anymore so I walk a lot so its was a natural challenge for me to start :)

I know you love walking and I think it's a good exercise for your knee.

Yes if I slacken off fir a few days I start to feel it in my knees so that keeps me motivated

First photo no wonder people don't know what to make of them, they may be boobs or eyes, who knows?

Stunning photography on the eagle, what material was used in that sculptor?

Both areas of remembrance nicely photographed, lovely walk with you today.

Thanks Kindly as for the eyes I think the artist probably titled it eyes or it may have not been displayed in a public place like this LOL
I will have to look up what the eagle was made of as I do now know off hand

Good Morning @tattoodjay...!!!
Fantastic eye catching 👀🙂 first photo on your Wednesday Walk..!!!
Battery Park truly looks like a wonderful place...😊 So many cool awesome things to see..!!!

My entry for today..
https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@annephilbrick/7hesno-wednesday-walk

I just saw your walk and what a wonderful post it was, and yes Battery park has so much to see I only touched on a very small part of it in this post

😊
Thank You..!
I really really hope someday to visit NYC...!!! 🤞and Battery Park is top on the list...!
:D

Most welcome and the problem with NYC is there is so much to see finding the time on a short visit is a challenge

Thanks for the SBI and hosting this. May you have a great day!!

My pleasure to host Wednesday Walk and you to Have a great day

Thank you for the SBI!
Here's my walk this week, all shots of the pavement at my feet. Thank you for opening my eyes!
https://steempeak.com/wednesdaywalk/@owasco/wednesday-walk-at-my-feet

I enjoyed your take on the walk this week as I said in my comment :)

Why yes. I thought it was "something else" lol

LOL I think most people do,I think the artist probably titled it eyes or it may have not been displayed in a public place like this LOL

Wow the veterans memorial looks cool, but is very explicit, I think it would not be possible to build somthing like this in germany.
Nice photos, especially the one of the plaza is sending me a special mood!

Thanks for your visit and I guess in some countries a memorial like that would not go well

Nice Eagle shot in Battery Park and Sea Glass Carousel. And here is my entry :
https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@kamrunnahar/wednesday-walk-to-my-sisters-daught

Thanks kindly 😎👍😎

Honestly, I didn't know what to think about the first photo. I thought it has something to do with batteries, lol. Why is it called battery park? Nevertheless, very interesting! However, the Sea Glass Carousel looks familiar. I think I saw it when I was in NY. It;s jsut we were so hurry and the first day was raining. Anyway, great shots!!!

This is my entry.........little bit late today 😊
https://steemit.com/busy/@lenasveganliving/wednesday-walk-at-the-park-by-the-lake

I didnt know how it got its name so I looked it up and found this

The park and surrounding area is named for the artillery batteries that were built in the late 17th century to protect the settlement behind them.

I have never seen the carousel when it is running, the times i visited there with family and friends I never went by it

That's very interesting and it makes sense.

I don't remember much about that carousel, I just know walked by it.

And as an older guy on my own with a camera I stay away from playgrounds and carousels when kids are riding them I don't want to be called a dirty old man LOL

I totally understand, lol.

These are awesome Jay!! My favorites are the eagle photo and the East Coast Memorial!! I did have a little chuckle at that first photo though..lol! 😉

LOl I suspect many had a chuckle with that first photo even if not many admitted it I know I did the first time I saw it

Haha, finallieeeee - I am here! Quite by accident actually... ;)
My post (not sure if it qualifies...) https://steemit.com/photography/@ackhoo/walk-about-the-ocean-side
Am most pleased that I get to participate in this!

Lol, you're gonna laugh when I say this but the first shot look like some cookies we have here... dome-shaped with a bit of cherry stuck onto the top! I know... I know... I kid you not! :D I love the memorial!

YEs your post qualifies I dont have rules just guidelines so its hard not to qualify LOL
OK you have to do a post about those cookies now :)

Hahahaha... oops! :D

Thanks for the SBI!

Most welcome

Yes, I'll admit I giggled at the "eyes" 😂 😂

Love the sculpture photos, especially that eagle, and the Korean War memorial shots.

Hope you been staying cool - did you get hit with the thunderstorms today too? They got pretty intense up this way - in fact, I ended up doing some old storm photos for my walk today.

https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@traciyork/stormyskieswickedwaybackwednesdaywalksjuly23rd28th2016-7nqb3yhi9l

Hope you've had some awesome family time, and !tip steem

Been keeping as cool as possible and yes we got that intense storm yesterday came just before I walked to the train 🚊 and I had forgot my umbrella so got soaked lol 😂
And then it moved almost in perfect time Ng with the train was watching so much powerful lightning from the train pretty tense to see

Just saw your walk earlier thanks again 👍😎😂

Dang those forgotten umbrellas! 😂

I can imagine watching the storm from the train must've been scary cool. And glad to hear you've been keeping as cool as possible - it just dropped from like 87 to 67 here in the past couple of hours. I'm half expecting another thunder boomer!

You're very welcome, and hope you have an awesome weekend! 😊

It wasnt too scary, to be honest but it was crazy cool I must say and yes its dropped temperature here its 73F now but still quite humid

Yep, we've had that humidity here too, and more thunder boomers today. Luckily no power outage though, so the house is still nice and cool. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

So far this weekend the weather has been nice a little humid but not too bad have got in a couple of beach walks so a great weekend for me
Glad you had no power outages

🎁 Hi @tattoodjay! You have received 0.1 STEEM tip from @traciyork!

Sending tips with @tipU - how to guide :)

Ohh and thanks for the tip

Cool pics, those are not eyes 👀 no way. You always find interesting things to shoot. Anyways... NYC is full of hot stuff for sure.

I think the artist may have chosen the name just to be more family friendly at least in name lol

Thank you for the mention and thank you for the #SPUD support!!!

MY Pleasure to support now I just have to remember to do my power up :)

Oh dang, I powered up my STEEM a day too early. I might have won some prices. That is a bummer! Nice shots! I need to dig through some of my recent shots and see if I can put together a post for today.

I suspect Yu like me don’t meet the criteria to win prizes but its a cool idea

That’s really neat that you’re giving out SBI each week, @tattoodjay. I really enjoy the weekly challenge. Somehow I forgot this week, though! Anyway, I enjoyed the photos in your post. Amazing memorials!

NO probably missing this week there is always next week and the SBI is just my way of sending out a little thanks to those who join

That Korean War memorial is really interesting with the soldier cutout like it is.

I do really like that memorial, i think the cutout soldier makes a powerful statement
