2012 Photography Challenge- Bricks!

by Susan Myers on October 13, 2012

Key West Garden Club/Suzys Artsy Craftsy Sitcom #photo challenge

While traveling in Key West, my husband and ran across this old fort that was apparently watched over by the Key West Garden Club.  A marvelous place full of history, beautiful plants and tons of large lizards!  We spent several hours wandering the grounds and enjoying the atmosphere.

I edited the original photo using the free software at picmonkey.com.

So how did you do?

Email your ‘brick’ submissions to me!  Check out the Submission Guidelines.  I will post your photos here along with any information that you would like to include.  If you have a website, feel free to add a link to your site!  I will be taking ‘brick’ submissions all week!  Feel free to send your original photo also!

Our theme for next week is “agriculture”.  See the information at the bottom of the post for details!

This weeks Submissions:


Beautiful old brick building in Elk City, Oklahoma.~ Brenda Williams, Weatherford, OK – Cats, Kids and Crafts

This picture was taken at Fort Morgan, Alabama showing one of the entrances to the fort.  The very interesting architecture allows views of the arched brick walls throughout the building.  I could not resist getting a shot of this view and wondering how many soldiers had walked through these arched hallways on their way to battle in the Civil War.  You can almost hear the men marching, the rifles firing and the horses hooves trotting by.  The only sounds heard now is the continuous dripping of water from the decaying ceilings and voices of the tourists echoing as they walk by. ~ Vonne Pope, Villa Rica, GA

It’s a bit of a mix…not sure if the stone work ‘bricks’ qualify or the lego BRICKS. ~Monica -Arma Dei-Equipping Catholic Families
1.       The first is a depiction of Chicago in Lego bricks, from the Lego Store in Chicago last weekend!
2.       I thought the next picture from Chicago was pretty cool.  Is this the historic water tower near the Hancock building?
3.       Castle at Disneyworld.

Next weeks theme- Agriculture!

We are going to take a look at farms, at produce, at the science, art, or practice of cultivating the soil, producing crops, and raising livestock and in varying degrees the preparation and marketing of the resulting products.  At least that is what the definition of Agriculture is.  Synonyms include: acreage, farmstead, field, garden, grassland, orchard, pasture, ranch, vineyard…

Is that enough to work with?  I bet we see some awesome photos this week.  Need a few more ideas?

So, go take a look around, take some awesome shots, and I’ll see you back here next week!

Now a days, brick works is rare. It’s the endorsement of history. And also i like sunflower. Thanks for your nice post.

Both the fort photos are just beautiful! Both places would be great back drops for “people” photos. I am jealous I want to go to both places! Thank you for doing this fun photo travel with us.
