Wednesday walk challenge Central park And Make me Smile Collaboration week

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, 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

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,
On the third Wednesday of the month out two challenges will collaborate so if you combine the two into one post you have double the fun

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

Central park

First off I must say this is and II am borrowing a term used by @traciyork a Wayback walk, and you will probably guess that because of the trees int his shot, I have got out for walks this past week but its bene pretty grey or raining most times and I don't have any recent shots that would fit this challenge to use so going back to a walk I did one morning through Central Park

But I know the host of this challenge is pretty laid back and doesn't have rules, just guidelines so I am sure he won't mind (after all it is me LOL)

This first shot is at one end of the walkways called The Mall

This next shot is by one of the many water feautures inthe park but at this point in time I forget which one, but you can see I wasn't the only one out early taking photos that day

Next up one of the rustic benches in the park, which for me just cried out for a mono edit

And in 1 WW Central park5.jpgthe same area another walkway with a rustic style fence on either side

And finishing off this walk post back on the Mall, this time while on the Mall itself, and I know often I try and get shots without people in them, but I am trying to get some shots with people in them now so don't be too shocked seeing people in three of thse shots :)

Weekly giveaway of shares

I am sending Steem Basic Income shares to 3 people selected through a random draw so on the weekend all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk. , @qwerrie, @quotes-haven, @ireenchew, @farm-mom, And a special bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @nelinoeva,

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.

Thanks so much appreciated

I didn't have a chance to see any water features when we were there, but we were siting on those rustic benches when we were taking family photos. It was so beautiful there. I wish we could stay longer. Your photos are marvelous, bringing back all those happy memories 😊

It makes me smile when my photos bring back good memories for people :) and those rustic benches are great for family photos arent they :)

Your photos often do and I absolutely adore those benches...........definitely great for family photos. There is nothing like photo studio of the central park. There must be tons of weddings each year too, besides other things.

Your photos often
Do and I absolutely
Adore those benches.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

I wonder if anyone has ever calculated how many photos are taken on an average day in Central Park I would imagine it must be an astronomical number

I don't think it's possible to calculate that, but I am sure, it is an astronomical number, lol.

Ohhyeah for sure especially with everyone taking photos with cell phones these day s

your photography skills are amazing!😍👍

Thanks its a hobby I have fun with

What a lovely lines made by tree branches! <3 <3 <3

Thank you Jay for sharing your incredible photographs to kick off my day on the right foot (pun intended!)

In my opinion, having random people in your images gives a better representation of how busy New York City know, "the hustle and bustle"!🗽

You are lucky to be able to enjoy walking at Central Park, especially before Winter arrives! @tattoodjay Hope you have a terrific Wednesday! !tip 🍁🌳🍂

Thanks for your visit and I am starting to realize your right people can add to some shots and I will try to not be so obsessed to wait till I can get a shot without people

Ohh yes I am lucky to be able to visit Central park from time to time ;)

Keep doing whatever you feel like doing in the moment, Jay, as your photography and posts are a joy for all of us! @tattoodjay

Thats so kind of you to say :)

Beautiful photos Jay! I can see why people would want to stop at that spot for photos! I love the rustic bench and fencing, it really adds to the charm and the bench looks awesome with the edit!! 💖

Thanks for your visit and such a kind comment truly appreciated and have a great day

You are very welcome Jay!! :)


That mall area looks really cool. I bet when the leaves are changing colors it is really pretty.

I was planning on heading to the Mall yesterday and catch the colors but the colors weren't out enough yet, maybe next week they will be and I will visit there ;)

Excellent photography from recent past when sun shone brilliantly allowing you time to capture moments of fun.

Thanks so much

Have a great day

I like your posts. You always find something interesting.

Thanks so kind of you to say I try to mix it up and have some variety

That’s neat that you all decided to combine the challenges.

I really love the reflection picture of the tree in the lake and that rustic bench is very unique.

I’m excited to have posted my first #wednesdaywalk post! Yay! 😃

I saw your post a little while ago so nice to have you join the walk and what a lovely post ;)

Hehehe, you answered my question... I've always wondered why there are no people where you walk, LOL! You purposedly wait till there are no peeps around! I love this walk of yours! I just posted my walk too! I am having so much fun with the Wednesday Walk tag. Thank you, my friend, @tattoodjay!

LOL its a thing I am kind of obsessed with trying to not have people but I am not trying to change that and include people now and again especially for my walk posts :)

I loved your walk what a cool area :)

I just love taking a stroll with you around the city. This is the only way I'll get to see the park.

Thanks I have so many friends and family around the world, and that why I got back into photography here, and now its greta to share with my Steemit friends :)

Very beautiful photography, that bench would be perfect on my farm, love that rustic look.
I hope to join the fun before the day slips away from me. You know how much I enjoy #wednesdaywalk and with the added bonus of #makemesmile, I am going to try my best. Either way I will be following .
Enjoy your day.

Thanks and I to love that bench :)

I took so long to get time to do some replies I see you have already done your post ;)

Central park ..such a fitting place to counter the concrete and asphalt ...

Ohh yeah I always think of it in an Oasis in the Concrete Jungle

Nice shots of Central Park photography.

Thanks Kindly :)

I love the colour of the trees, starting to green again!

At that stage they were now they are starting to turn to colors and then fall

Because it's Autumn now?

YEs indeed Autumn is like Mothers natures tease, some lovely warm colors but the temperatures start to fall as do the colorful Leaves very windy today and that will blow away a lot of the colors I fear

This post is inspiring me to go for a walk... it is Wednesday after all.

Such a nice comment, I try and get out for walks every day if I can :)

Yes! I do love the random people in your shots and always have, even though some of the ones that are clean are fun too. I guess it just depends on the shot!

Love that rustic bench and yes!! It had mono written all over it!

What a beautiful day in Central Park!!! Lucky you!!! Glad you can get out of the office and peruse the city! Happy Wendesday Walking!

!tip .20

I am slowly trying to add more people into shots when it seems right to me, its a mental block I have including people one of my many Idiosyncracies LOL
I think any day one can walk in Centrral Park is a good day :)

What gorgeous photos' I just love that rustic bench! Soon it's going to be not so green in your nick of the woods not so, strange to think we're going into summer over here!
Here is my contribution this week Giba Gorge MTB Park

I always find it funny how we have opposite weather through the year as we get color then grey you get the greens returning and new growth :)

I am truly fascinated with your photos, the great talent to take such great photographs can be noticed very well

Thanks thats such a kind comment and truly appreciated :)

Thank you for sharing your works with us.

Totally my Pleasure ;)


I am so glad I stumbled across the #wednesdaywalk challenge, @tattoodjay! I just started with steem last week but I am loving all the substance in what people are sharing with each other. I will definitely be joining in starting actual posting next wednesday, but I am adding a couple of photos from today's walk here just because it was with my kids' environmental group while we did a cleanup on the Pigeon River this afternoon. Since I live in the Great Smoky Mountains in east Tennessee and I spend a lot of time outdoors, this weekly post will be great fun! Thanks for the idea and motivation to promote it! :-) 20191016_162348.jpg
(noob question - why do my photos come out sideways? I'm missing something)

What cool shots and welcome aboard with steemit what I love about it is the sense of community
I look forward to you joining Wednesday Walk :)

I am not sure why sometimes the photos come sideways it happens for me sometime son my Phone, and it seems ot happen less if I have the phone upright

And for your walk on Wednesday my most striking photo is the shot that is characterized by the reflection of the landscape in the water.

Thanks so much appr4eciated ;)

WOO HOO! Three cheers for Wayback Wednesdays! 😂

It's been grey and raining here in NH as well, so I completely appreciate your sunny days of yore. And seeing you jump on the wayback machine made me ridiculously happy...LOL!

I know you've already seen my post, but for the record, here's my contribution -

Thanks for the shout out, and for always being an awesome host.

!tip steem

Dang it! And I meant to mention that reflection shot is GORGEOUS!

The way this week is going I may have to do the same next week, LOL thanks for dropping off your link so others can find it ;)

I love the feeling to be in a park. The peaceful environment, the smiling kids playing and the people just wanted to relax. The chair is wood so it much better.
