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.
My Wednesday Walk
Well this past week we had the United Nations General assembly going on so Security was really tight in the area where I work, so I didn't get out for many walks for taking photos this past week, so these are shots I took with my new Cell Phone on a walk between Grand Central Terminal and my office.
Security is pretty intense all around the UN buildings, well the area within a few blocks of the UN buildings, with all kinds of police, security, road blocks etc, but this is something not many may know or notice.
This was on Third Avenue outside of the tightly controlled area where you needed an ID to get into the area, but the Postbox was locked up tight so it couldn't be used.
I presume it is to ensure no one can drop any explosive devices into the mail box during the time when all the world leaders are in the area.
We also has a lot of rian last week so I took this shot sjhowing the wet streets and reflected lights.
Speaking of rain, this is somehting I have only seen here in the States, sure i have seen red floor signs in malls and shoppping centres, when the floor has been mopped so people won;t slip, but on a sidewalk when it is raining, or you can easily tell, (as from the previous shot) that it has been raining, but some buildings feel the need to put out one of these signs, it just seems crazy to me, but I guess its to provide the owners of the building some protection from lawsuits if someone slips and hurts themselves.
A little further on my walk I came across this staircase with the red tape to stop people going up the stairs, I have been passing by these stairs for 3 or 4 weeks now and this is how the stairs have been for all that time, so I guess they are in no rush to repair them.
And this last shot is this green box on the side of the road, it is something that must be there somewhat permanently as well, I have no idea what it is used for but I though it interesting enough to get a shot of.
Steem Basic Income give away
I mentioned in the guidelines that 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 randomly send some Steem to add shares for some of my followers so on the weekend
With the Hardfork issues last week Wednesday walk was pretty much a bust and also it limited any steem coming in, so not Steembasic income shares give away today
All people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk, 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.
