November 2020 PAD Thoughts?

Post Wed Oct 28, 2020 10:30 pm


Hello Everyone!

Yes, I do exist and in less than 24 hours I will be RETIRED and want to start up with my photography hobby once again as I've missed all of you!

I'd like to propose a topic for November PAD: It's the little things we are grateful for ..In the USA, Thanksgiving is in the month of November. I've been thinking too about gratitude and all that I have to be thankful. Even COVID has been a gift in some ways as it has forced me to slow down and notice/appreciate things that I may not have seen before. I've noticed too that neighbors are friendlier. Thus, I thought we could photograph things that we are noticing in our lives and are grateful for. Am I making sense?

Not much participation in October. I will be happy to continue posting my PaD photos.

We can not celebrate our usual Thanksgiving because of the virus.

A good idea Brenda, maybe we could add memories to the subject as I, for one, am grateful for many happy memories brought by friends and family.
It was sad that the monthly topic/challenge had petered out and it has been good to see friends back.
France is in lockdown again, Pete and I classify as vulnerable and are restricted to walks within 1km of the house with no socialising,
and so archive images may feature in my posts this month!

We too are not celebrating a traditional Thanksgiving due to COVID either.

Chris - I too am in the vulnerable category.

I like the idea of memories. Hmmm...Let's work together for a topic. Maybe...."So Grateful for the Memories - Past and Present" This PAD can include archival photos of old memories that we are grateful or new....or "Today I am Grateful for Memories New and Old" or "Appreciating the Past and the Present".

I'm hoping that if we "build it, they will come" and if we start a PAD, we will generate interest and participation! I've missed this and the community.

Hi Brenda, nice to hear your planned return to posting. Like Chris, anything I have posted this year has been archive images which can be classed as memories made....we haven't followed the rigid rules of the original challenges for a very long time and even with archive images the number of participants stays low but those who remain still have fun.

I'm definitely open to archived images. If we are all agreeable to this topic, let's go for it. Help me word the November challenge. Writing is always a struggle for me.
