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

1 Wednesday Walk with iPhone.jpg

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.

Haha, I think my favorites are the one of the stairs that need to be repaired and that lovely green graffiti box!


Thanks for your thoughts I still find those stairs intriguing, was the same this morning

Quite an interesting view.

I am a bit curious on why the Stairs on Chains will have handrail on both sides since the distance from the wall to the stairs us less than 300mm from my guess.

Thanks for sharing your walk despite the busy time last week occasioned by the presence of 'world leaders'.


Thanks MAte yes those taped stairs were various curious to say the least


:) That's true

I enjoyed your walk of this week! This week I posted a walk of my own. I hope you'll enjoy it also.

Lovely Wednesday street walk shots, this is my first time stumbling on your Wednesday walk challenge, I love the concept, it’s easy and fun, I’m interested, and will love to participate, but I’ll also wanna know if it’s weekly challenge as the name sounds or can we do this daily anyway? @tattoodjay.

Yours @maxdevalue

Thanks Kindly

my shots for todays post were playing around with my new iphone

Awww I like this challenge! My view is always a dogs butt though haha oh and trees...lots of trees!


Its a fun challenge and I am glad to see many joiningit, a walk with dog butts and trees is of course fine :)


I will try and remember to take some pictures on my walks tomorrow. I am all walked out today!


ME to I did a big walk before I went to the office

Thank you for this fun challenge - Quirky Signs at the SPCA

Nice shots. The unseen part of NYC is quite interesting. I found funny the wet floor signs in front of the building. Never seen something similar.

Here is my Wednesday Walk.


Yeah its bizarre to me they need that sign

Thanks again for joining the Wednesday walk

Happy Wednesdaywalk day @tattoodjay! I like the lock on the mail box. I've never seen one of those. Rain makes everything look fresh and new, always welcome. US is lawsuit crazy. I replaced two tires on my car and wanted them on the front. The tire shop made me sign a disclaimer that industry standard is to put them on the back...just in case I had in problems its not their fault and I can't sue.


Yeah it is crazy here for things like that

I noticed this morning that lock was still on the mail box, i wonder if they forgot to take it off or its still on for some reason


Thanks for joining will check it out shortly ;)


Cool I'm spreading the word about #wednesdaywalk :-)


Thanks the more the merrier :)

It is so odd to think how much security is required when people who meet that are supposed to represent the people of the nations can't even use their own section of their nation. Funny ole times.


Yeah times sure have changed, each year the security gets tighter and tighter, its a sad state of the world that is the case

Nice shot mail box and other box and the raindrops of the stairs and street. I enjoy your Wednesday walk and hope you will enjoy my own walk too.


Thanks Kindly and yes I did enjoy your walk :)

I'm afraid my Wednesday Walk is going to have to be published on Thursday this week. I'm not so much into the contest as the photos of my walking. And my walks tend to not be short. A lot nearer 5 miles than 5 blocks. I have a goal of 8000 steps per day. Old people fitness, you understand :)


No Worries mate, as I say I have guideline snot rules, and. I am an oldie as well and do the same, din my 5 miles around the city this morning before going to the office, I am trying to hit 10k steps a day as part of my loosing weight scheme, but walkingis somehting I have done for years myself as well its my way of relaxing

Thanks for the glimpse of those Manhattan streets! Lovely photography, resteemed!

My post for today is here:


Thanks Keith and thanks again for joining the walk

it seems this is the way things are these days. Everything is a potential lawsuit or so we are led to believe?
It's a bit nuts to have to put a sign up to let the public know it's been raining and the floors may be slippery. Are the public really that stupid?
I guess they really are :-)

Here's my post for this week


Sadly I guess some are, but a weird thought just past through my mind, I wonder if there has ever been a law suit because someone was so focused on their phone they didnt notice the sign and fell over it

I loved your post and especially that first shot


I did read that in Sweden or Norway they have painted stop signs on the sidewalk when coming to a road as people were just walking out in front of traffic?

focused on their phone they didnt notice the sign and fell over it

Ha ha now that I would pay money to see.

I love that first photo too.

I like how you can see the seemingly irrelevant things around you. great !!! my post is


Thanks and thanks for joining will go check your post shortly ;)

I'm late but in! I have many posts "ready" for this challenge I am determined to get them in weekly now :)


Thanks for joining such an interesting area

I like this type of contest. For me it is a way to stand up and get out ! Thats is good ! I will be back with my post

Unfortunately, the world is increasingly uncertain. Various forms of protection are normal.


YEs sadly that is so true

A little rain and a lot of security in NYC made for some interesting photo ops! The roped off stairwell with red tape looks more like the entrance to a Halloween dungeon or some place spooky. The green box reminds me of how and where they used to sell newspapers at busy intersections. Is that even a thing anymore???
You were so kind as to visit my post already but I'll put it here in the comments since it's one of the easy rules!😀
Thanks so much for reblogging!!!


Yeah your right it did make me think out of the box for shots :)

Yes there are still the newspaper and magazine boxes, and the guys selling papers on the odd corner here and there

I love the shots of the lights reflecting on the wet street (although I'm getting pretty tired of all the wet we're having here in the Northeast! 😜 )

I know I'm a day late and a crypto short, but I did another driveway walk, and I'm hoping to do a followup next Wednesday once the foliage really gets going. So doing this one now is supposed to give me! Thanks again for hosting this, @tattoodjay!

Oh, and I'm still a bit fuzzy on all the SBI stuff, but I sent you 0.5 Steem in case you can use it to buy some more. If not, then please consider it a tip for all that you do!


Thanks so much,I love seeing all the Wednesday walk posts no matter what day they come in, thanks for the transfer I will put it into some SBI for this week's posts :)

now off to visit your post :)


Awesomeness, @tattoodjay! 😊


Have a great weekend


You too, @tattoodjay! 😊


Lets call it a little late so it counts for this week

what a cool walk thanks for sharing ;)
