I love the 30 photo challenges I'm finding on the internet.  They are great for playing with ideas and images I wouldn't normally photograph.

You can challenge yourself to take 20-30 photos in a month (I like 30) and post a photo a day, or go at a slower pace.  There's a lot of flexibility.  

I wonder... What would a permaculture photo challenge look like?


Why not make a list for the month of October?  Anyone up for this?

(this thread is about making list(s) for the photo challenges.  When we have a list, we can start a new thread for posting photos in the challenge)

I have a deck of permaculture playing cards in front of me, so I pulled some out at random.  So I'll use these for inspiration to start the list.

1 Beyond Compost
2 apple tree
3 food preservation
4 food as medicine
5 dandelion
6 cast iron
7 replacing irrigation with permaculture
8 bugs, weeds, funguses &/or microorganisms
9 wildcrafting
10 mulberry

sweet.
thanks for the ideas.

I've taken some of them and made the first list: https://permies.com/t/124433/art/Permaculture-Photo-Challenge-October

But I'm thinking, if people enjoy it, we can have more photo challenges so we'll need to keep brainstorming ideas.

Themes:

Since November is winter for many people (or hot summer for the rest), the theme could be self-care.  (zone something? zero?)

December theme is community and maybe only have 20 items instead of 30 because of the holidays.
 
If you settle for what they are giving you, you deserve what you get. Fight for this tiny ad!
