Wednesday Walk make me smile post Downtown Milford

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

Downtown Milford CT

For this weeks walk I am sharing a few shots taken on a walk from home through Downtown Milford Ct, starting with this shot of the Central fire Station on New Haven Avenue

A little further on my walk, I walked by the Public Library, I think its a pretty cool building

A couple of years ago they had a project where they invited photographers to submit photos to be displayed at the train station, about 200 people submitted photos and they selected photographs from 7 people in the end to be displayed, I was very lucky that they selected three of my photos only myself and one other had three selected, so I took it as quite an honor and compliment :) and I do think they do enhance the look of our station

Here is one of my photos

and finishing off with this shot of the rail bridge just beside the station with the welcome to Downtown Milford sign

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 @syedubair, @bluemoon, @nightportraits, @joalvarez, @barbara-orenya, @bozz, @bambuka,

@elizacheng will send one SBI share to @jerrytsuseer,


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.

Congratulations @tattoodjay

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Thank you so much for this JJ @tattoodjay, I will try to get out and collect some noteworthy images today for this challenge. If I am up to it.
This area where I now reside isn't NEARLY as steeped in history or interesting architecture as my previous abode, but still, "interesting" is in the eye of the beholder.
Be well Jay, I'll be back!

Cheers Jerry and yes Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder ;)

beautiful buildings at Downtown Milford CT. Awesome photographs my friend.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Those old downtown fire stations are some of the best. The city I grew up in has several through the city, but the one downtown is probably the most welcoming looking and just a cornerstone of the area.

I do agree there are a few cool ones here, I think I have got shots of them all at one time or another

Thanks and thanks also for dropping your link here ;)

Thank you for hosting me

My pleasure to host the Wednesday Walk :)

I love to walk, or very early in the morning or in the afternoon before the sun goes down, in my opinion the best hours to take pictures. This Wednesday I already escaped, but I will be watching this next Wednesday to participate in your challenge. Hey, your photos are great, full of color ... greetings and a strong psychological hug. Congratulations on your photos and that they have chosen to select three of yours.

Ohh yes I am the same those are my favorite times of days for photo walks, but the morning walks will have to wait a bit tillit warms up inthe mornings

Thanks for such a kind comment ;)

Milford has some lovely buildings which you captured beautifully! I love that picture of yours that got chosen for the train station - what an honor!
