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.

A walk in Milford CT

Now most of my Wednesday Walk posts of recent have been in NYC, but for this week let me share you some photos taken this past week in Milford CT where I live

For this walk, I was walking downtown to pick up some sunblock, which I mentioned in a recent actifit post, and the funny thing is that's the thing I forgot all about once I started the walk, but I did pick up some the nest day :)

This is the Elks building on New Haven Avenue, now the Elks full name is the The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and other than hosting a few events with local bands playing I honestly did not know much about them but from the website they state

Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.

Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life.

##Note
By the time I took the last shot I noticed I had my ISO set to 1000 ISO which was not needed for these shots on a nice sunny day and switched back to ISO 100

And finishing off with a shot of St Marys Church

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. @melinda010100, @bozz,@brittandjosie, @almi, @dswigle, all people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk .
And a special bonus this week @elizacheng will send one SBI share to @shasta,

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.

It's hard to believe that it's already time for 'full marina' photos already. It seems I just saw the 'empty sad marina winter' photo :)

Per the norm these are truly wonderful photos. And let the record show that I REALLY like the challenge! It's one of the very best on Steem IMHO.

·

I agree, Wednesdaywalk (and #treeTuesday) are my favorite and the addition of SBI is a nice bonus. @tattoojay does a great job keeping on top of this project.

·

Yes indeed it changed so quick it was only. Couple of weeks ago I took. Sad empty marina shot
And thanks so much thats so kind of you to say I love seeing the posts from the walks around the world each week

·

Indeed it was a lovely stroll, and dang I was in the pharmacy last night and yet again forgot to grab sunscreen LOL

And may the value of Steem keep climbing :)

I am a sucker for harbour and boat pictures. The idea to sail off to the sunsets altruism the world ......... I will do that when I grow up !
Thank you for the prize it’s highly appreciated!

·

Most welcome for the prize, I to love photos by the water and of boats, but as for growing up with me that will never happen LOL

Great location, beautiful church! as always Wonderful shots that reminded me that summer is coming very soon. :) Many thanks for the SBI!

·

MOst welcome for the SBI I ove this little city i moved to so much fun and things to see here, I will miss it when we move away when I retire

·
·

Do you already know where to go? then maybe we'll get nice photos and post from there.

·
·
·

A rough idea but nothing certain yet that will be next year wherever it is I am sure I will find things to take photos of

Looks such a peaceful place to enjoy a walk, variety of old buildings dating the area, marina makes another lovely view. Gorgeous photography as always.

·

Thanks I never tire of strolls around this area its so relaxing and a total contrast to NYC

Thanks we had such a nice day that day the skies were glorious :)

The Elks Lodge gives me such nostalgia! In the town where my dad grew up all the big events were held there! I remember going to a few weddings and other fun events, but then the last time I went was for my grandfather's funeral. Wow, that means it has been 20 years since I stepped foot in one. I don't think they have them down here, though perhaps the Shriner's serve a similar purpose?

·

I don’t know about the Shriners either to be honest,I did get approached after shooting a couple of events they hosted in the car park are there to join the Elks, But the sent the wrong person to see me. Guess and he was really pushy and just turned me off the place completely, he had such an arrogant attitude, but that said I stilll shoot there events sometimes, just avoid him and share the photos with one of the members :)

I had to laugh that you forgot the sunscreen, and had to go back out the next day to get it... sounds like me most days... 😂

All of your shots are beautiful, as always, but that first marina shot really caught my eye.

Thanks again for hosting this - here is my contribution for the week...

And of course - !tip

·

Funny thing is unless I am loosing my marbles I don’t think I have got the sunscreen yet, I even was in a pharmacy yesterday and only when I got him did I remember. I Need some. I must get some soon, or maybe i should check at hoe first and make sure I didnt buy some,
Each year with my skin issues i normally get a couple of bottles of it, one in my camera bag and one at home, I am normally very good but have been a bit slack, I better get some before I see my Dermatologist in a couple of weeks thats one of the first questions they ask do I use it

I saw your walk loved all the delightful photos of the flowers

Great Wednesday walk! Looks like you live in a lovely town. I'll be back later with my Wednesday walk, just deciding on where I'm going to walk to. A great idea to encourage photo-walking!

·

Thanks and Yes its worth the log commute to and from work to live in such a beautiful area

Looking forward to seeing your walk :)

·

And here you go - took me a lot longer to post it than it did to walk it, lol.

Awesome pictures! Thanks for the SBI. Seeing those boats makes me think of fishing. I can't wait to get out on the water this Summer!

·

Thanks and your welcome, I have bene invited out fishing a couple of times, but its something I have never got into I cant stay still long enough for fishing,now if the invite was to cruise around the island or up and down the sound to take photos I would be all aboard :)

A great walk through the burb. Glad you had a sunny day for it. You got some great shots:)Thanks again for hosting:)

Thanks it was a lovely day and I always love walks by the water

Nice sunny day for a walk in Milford.

·

We were lucky all the weekend was pretty nice ;)

I only walked to the car, into work, out to the car...... one stop on the way home and then into the air condition. It got up to 95 here today. A bit early for us. :)

·

That’s pretty hot fir this time of year
Sensible to not be out to much in that heat
It had gone up to the 80s here but the weather is still a roller coaster today high in mid to high 60s and cool in the morning

Good to see all the boats back and all these awesome colors
of the season! I really like the photo of the statue, how green
the trees, striking the building and sky, really nice!

Your walking day is Epic @tattoodjay!! It's a lot of fun seeing
and learning about the many places around the world! 🌏
Thank you for that! :-)

Thank you so much @elizacheng for the sbi!! :-)

·

Ohh yes it’s alwAys kind of sad seeing the marinas empty
When you start seeing boats coming in you know the warmer weather is here to stay 👍😎😘
