Gallery: Square

Dave Miller - Toes squared in Del Mar

The theme for our monthly photo quest in October was “Square” and we expected a large number of submissions because that’s EASY, right? Well… perhaps it wasn’t – or perhaps it was TOO easy? 😉 Either way, here are the images that you submitted for the quest. Thanks a lot to everyone who participated!

Photo Quest October: Square

Old train detail, Pacific Southwest Railroad Museum, Campo, California, July 2018.

New month and new chance to win absolutely nothing in our monthly photo quest – except for the incredible experience of getting out with your camera, thinking creatively, and making a photo for the quest in which you interpret the theme! Which should be its own reward, of course. On top of that though, your photo will get featured in the gallery of submissions that we post once the quest is complete (and the month is over). Does that sound awesome? Are you in?

Night is Calling (Photo Quest August)

Shipwreck Tufa under Stars, South Tufa, Mono Lake, California, September 2016

Depending on where in San Diego you are, your days are either warm, hot, or torrid right now – but the nights are nice when temperatures drop, the skies are mostly clear, the coyotes are singing, the stars are out, and the Milky Way is beautifully visible in all of its glory in summer.

The August theme for our photo quest is Night is Calling – so let’s get out into the night!

June is here and so is the next photo quest for our members! This month the theme is:

I see a pattern here!

You can take this anywhere from a free interpretation (tell a story with your photo that involves a pattern!) to literally looking for patterns – and in a close-up or a larger frame too of course. Patterns. The possibilities are endless!
