WEEK 29: The Photographic Wheel of Fortune

We moderators had a bit of miscommunication this morning, so I decided to bring back the Wheel of Fortune! We last did this back in Week 5, but what you spin is always different so hopefully you don’t feel like it’s too much of a repeat. 😉

I encourage you to accept what the wheel gives you, except, if you land on pets, animals, and insects and none are available in your home, go ahead and spin again!

We have a WILD CARD that entitles you to make of it anything you want. There’s also an inspired by PhotoChallenge Contributor selection. That’s pretty simple, if there’s one of us, the photo challenge contributors who inspire you the most, you create an image along the lines of an image they’ve once contributed to one of the challenges.

This challenge is totally opened to creative interpretation. Think about it seriously, it’s not because the wheel handed you 2 choices that don’t immediately make sense that you can’t work something out that’s creative and witty.

Give it a spin and hope for the best 🙂



You may have some questions. Some of you may want clarification on the meaning of a specific tab on the wheel. I encourage you to do so in the comment section on our Facebook Group where this challenge is posted. I will clarify any techniques and guide you in the right direction.

The friendly community guidelines are pretty simple:

  • Take a new photo for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • Post your photo each week to our active communities on Facebook or Flickr (or both). Tag the photo: #2021photochallenge #photochallenge #tempusaura
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2021 Trevor Carpenter Photo Challenge is fun and easy.

About thedigitaljeanie

I’m a self-taught photographer and way back when I used to love taking photos, but I allowed a business that I started in 2004 to take over my life and my photographic repertoire was reduced to quick product shots and how-to tutorials. When I joined the PhotoChallenge in December 2015, I was looking to rekindle my creativity and bring some joy back into my photography. I jumped in with both feet and have not looked back. I believe that photography can change the way we see and interact with the world around us. Some people may think that I hide behind the camera, but I feel that I experience the world in a much more intimate way when I am creating a composition in my viewfinder. In those moments distractions disappear, my mind focuses and I am fully present. It is just me and my camera capturing a moment in time that might otherwise go unnoticed. My background is as varied as the photos that I take. I’ve trained and worked as a software engineer, a massage therapist, an English teacher in Vietnam, a photo restoration artist (which is how I learned Photoshop) and for the past twelve years I have run a small software business with my husband where I have been published in numerous books and magazines, appeared on PBS television, created designs for fabric, quilts and machine embroidery and won awards for some of my quilts. It should come as no surprise that I am intensely curious about life and love to learn new things. I am blessed to live in the beautiful state of Colorado, USA in the Rocky Mountain foothills outside of Fort Collins with my husband and cat.
