Wednesday walk challenge Central park 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

This weeks walk in Central Park

It was an overcast grey morning when I took this walk, but I thought for a change I would share a couple of shots of people, in a shot or two, and they're even walking, and the main guy shown in this shot is not only walking but talking ;)

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. , @old-guy-photos, @melinda010100, @lenasveganliving, -all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk . And a bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @adalger,

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.

What a lovely walk and you ran into people! How cool and such a lovely day for the park. Just like Rock Creek Park here and various other places, people are always amazed to see parks and beauty in the city.

You showcase it so well.

!tip I'll steem you later!

I always look on Central Park as an Oasis inthe concrete Jungle, it has so much there it seems quite small looking at it on a map but is quite vast when walking through it

I like the picture of the shack. I wonder how old that building is and what it might have been used for before it became what it is now. Nice shots!

I to wondered about that but couldn’t find any info on it, but sometimes here in NYC they fool you and build something new but make it so it looks like it has bene there for a lot longer than it is

It was hard for me to realize the immensity of Central Park before I visited there. Great photos! Thanks so much for an SBI share!

MOst welcome for the share and yes without actually going for a walk int he Park you have no idea ow vast it is

Central Park must be a great place to stroll around during the day. The only time I've ever had an opportunity to visit was during night time, and I just walked over to Times Square instead.

Central Park during he day is nice but if it son a weekend it can get so crowded, thats why I like doing early morning walks there whileit is relatively quiet

New York being a great big city, I would never have thought I would enjoy seeing so much through your photography sharing.

You have highlighted some amazing things to see and do around this city, it definitely presents a very big mix with something different around every corner.

I wanted ot visit NYC sometime but never wanted to work here, the Boss i NY asked me two times to come here and work with him and I declined, he third time i was given no choice so I argued and agreed to come for one year Max, its not been about 17 Years so I guess I do like it here lOLI am still a country boy at heart but there is always so much to see in the city

The second pic is so awesome as like designed graphically

Thanks so much for your feedback :)

Nice to see shots of Central park as I've never visited. Beautiful greenspace for people to get out and walk, although haven't there been crime issues in the park? Early 7 am walk? Wow, you certainly are an early bird :)

&am is whenI started the walk, but I do have an hour 40 Train Ride to get to the city and then the walk to the park, most days i get up at 4:20 in the morning :)
Yes I look at Central Park as an Oasis in a concrete Jungle ;)

Thanks for joining the walk Just popped over and saw your lovely post

Thank you for your attention!

Central Park truly looks like beautiful place for walking...and talking 🙂😎.
Some of leaves on the trees here are starting to turn into their fall colors.

Oh wow! Central Park!!! Beautiful, even on cloudy day! Superb shots!

Thank you so much for the income thing! How does it work?

Central Park-is a beautiful Oasis in the city and thanks

SBI Steem Basic Income works on Here is how they describe 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

Basically they do upvotes based on how man shares you have, and if the upvote would be a dust vote they hold it and let your vote credit build till it is a vote that will come to you ( at east thats how i think it works) you do not need to do anything you can just let it sit there, they have a account where you can learn more if interested

You are totally right! Oasis is the perfect description for it! always a pleasure!

Thanks again for the basic income thing. I remember, I was invited before and I am pretty sure I have an account, or something, lol. That's why I asked you, because I am still confused about it! But I will check that link and see if I get some clarity 😊

You have 6 SBI shares now I checked on Steempeak lol
But if after you check there posts if you have any questions feel free to ask

Oh really? Thank you so much! Yous see I don't have Steempeak. Does it work on PC or only on mobile?

Also, based on what I am reading here

I can add that to #fruitsandveggiesmonday! That way we can sponsor each week top three winners 🥑😊🍒

What an oasis this is @tattoodjay, funnily I'm also posting about a park in the city:) Love your photos!

Yes it truly is an oasis at least that’s what I say 😂
Parks in a city are a great place for a walk 😎

Nice greenery view of Central park.

Gorgeous shots. Someday I want to make it there. Thanks for sharing, buddy

Welcome to taiga @tattoodjay :-)

Thanks for sharing such beauty with us

My pleasure @tattoodjay :-)

There are people in your pictures, weird. :)

LOL I know that is unusual for me, but I am coming to realize sometimes they do add to the photo LOL

Sharing photos of people walking for a Wednesday walk post where you're walking and taking pictures is confusing inspired! 😂

Seriously, cool theme for this week! That second shot looks like it could be used in an ad campaign... not sure what product you'd be selling, but it's awesomely eye-catching!

Here's my contribution for the week -

And here's your awesomesauce host !tip steem

I think confusing may be more apt than inspired LOL, I know its quite a change for me I mostly try to avoid people in shot but have come to the realization recently that sometimes they do add to a photo so its something I will try to do more of especially for my city shots, try being the keyword, I often slip back to my old ways when I set myself challenges like this LOL

I just saw your post and love it :)

LOL! Actually, I remember you had a recent post that you talked about trying to include people in shots here and there, which is part of the reason I took candid shots of people on my Hampton Beach post a couple weeks back. I feel much the same way, and I appreciate it when other people challenge themselves, which inspires me to challenge myself, which then makes other people challenge themselves (boy, this is becoming a very challenging comment... 😂 ).

And thank you so much! 🤗

Well I find it kinf of amusing that somethign I seldom do but am trying to work on challenged you to try it and now, of course, I do feel the challenge to do more people shot sonthe street this coming week if we just get some nice days to get out and take photos

have a good weekend

I always love looking at different parks of the world the way they are arranged and the lush greenery and that is a rare sight to see someone talking on there mobile phone normally they are all 🤣

The same fir me whenever I visited somewhere I liked checking out the parks
And 😂 your right texting is something you see so much more than talking you are a early riser of to the beach for a walk before work :)

Well I am an early riser but not for a beach visit before work as I catch the train at 5 am and it’s still dark then but I do a city walk often before going to the office
