AWAY - Abbie Shores

6 Days Ago

Containers is a broad spectrum

Cups contain liquid
Lorries contain goods
Boxes can contain things

Etc etc

 

Sharon Popek

I'll be traveling for part of the time, but I'll give it a try anyway. Count me in.

 

Val Arie

6 Days Ago

Well I am won over by the etc etc...

The world clock is a good idea - I am always confused about the timing. That will be helpful.

 

RD Erickson

6 Days Ago

I should skip this one - but, Oh well - sign me in. rd

 

James McCormack

6 Days Ago

Yup, I'm in, and probably going to hell in a handbasket for neglecting everything else, will enjoy the ride!

edit: the multiple clocks are very useful. One challenge started 10pm my time, made me first every day, the last one, I always seemed to be last, wondered if I was into the next day.

 

Nancy Merkle

Nothing to lose by trying. I'm sure the interpretation of "container" will need to be very loose on my part. Please sign me up.

 

I am in...not sure I can come up with 30 days of "containers" tho...yikes, lol!

 

Bill Swartwout

Containers are "interesting" as a topic but should be no problem (ships, trains, glasses, bottles, cups, etc.). However, we'll be on the road for part of the time so I'll have to sit this one out. (...insert sad-face emoji here...)

But you can be sure I'll be watching the progress.

A pretty interesting theme. Count me in.

 

Karen Silvestri

Sorry, I'm unfortunately not able to this time. :-(

 

Matthias Hauser

Hmmmm, let's see: I will be away for 6 days, starting tomorrow. Time will be very limited. No idea how the connectivity will be.

So yes, count me in! :-)

 

Cathy Anderson

Me too!

 

David Choate

I'm thinking....I'm thinking ---- sounds like a long time to me -- especially for a guy who -at my age- no longer thinks it's wise to buy "green" bananas

Right now, I'm thinkin' that I'll let you know later....LOL

 

Peter Brighouse

Hopefully this is how I sign up for challenge 12

 

Sarah Niebank

Sounds GREAT! Include me please and excited to begin in the group!

 

Gaby Ethington

I'll be traveling part of this challenge and won't be able to complete it. Sounds fun, though. Have fun everyone!

On another note, our internet is down since yesterday, a fiber optic line got cut and our whole county that has Windstream is without internet. I am on my phone and my eyes cannot handle it for too long! 😩

 

Mo Barton

Interesting theme...
Sign me up please Abbie.
Might be away in Oct but let's see how it goes.

 

Lois Churchward

6 Days Ago

Alright sign me up. I can not be sure I'll finish but I will try it.
Yes 30 days is a long while to think about containers. Right now all I can think of is container plants.

 

Roberta Byram

6 Days Ago

I LOVED doing the last challenge and look forward to participating in more! However; I still travel and will be out of town 2 of these 4 weeks and all my software is on my desktop! So sorry, I will have to miss this one! Roberta

 

Debra Banks

6 Days Ago

am thinkgin I. will have to skip this one... I couldn't do 30 days of containers... shame as I was really looking forward to doing a longer challenge... How broad is the definition Abbie... is the ocean a container? is a shell a container...I am having trouble with this...

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

No. But ships are

 

Her Arts Desire

Count me in!

 

Tatiana Travelways

My ships are already on FAA :) But I have more than 30 other kind of containers in my archives, and I LOVE doing images for these challenges.

However, after the 5th of Oct. I will travel a little, and I'm not sure. I'll have to think about... Oh, well, I'll go and if I cannot finish I will not.

Sign me up, please - Thank you!

I'm not enough of a challenge addict for 30 days to be attractive . . . but the theme is excellent.

For a future challenge . . . how about a longer (as in 2 weeks to a month) challenge in which we commit to fresh uploads every day. I have quite a few that are sitting there waiting for me to do that. It takes me almost as long to upload as it does to take and process most images - I'm generally very thorough when it comes to key words and descriptions.

 

Couldn't a shell with a snail in it be a "container" for that snail? Or an Oyster with a pearl in it?

@Abbie & Donna... OK I'm ready for a 30D Container Fix! GJ glorijean

@Debra... Yeah I will be tearing through my house on this CONTAINER one... I'm thinking little containers for jewelry, soap; my oats container & Santa's cookie jars!
I have no idea what will emerge... My TEAPOTS area also containers!!! YEAH!!! Don't forget all the coffee cups Yu'le... Anything commuter seems containers to me, containers for cellphones, lunch bags, buses, the car, train.... oh I've got these totes & pkgs to return those containers... I'm going to try to upload from the road if I have to as I'm hoping for a few roadtrips.

How can CAC Artist CONTAIN COVID variants from spreading this fall yu'le, now that will be great challenge!!! GJ glorijean

 

Henriette S-Hansen

I'm in too and hope I can keep up for 30 days ^^

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

See? Huge amount of potential for this one. I had to think of a theme that would be good for everyone, inside or out. I did good, LOL

ok adding the new names now....

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

By the way

Am doing certificates today. I've actually had a migraine (my first for years) for 3 days. It had ebbed off yesterday but today is the first day I've been free of pain in awhile. So I'll get everything done soon

 

Sarah Niebank

Question for Abbie: Can our "container art" include abstractions of containers? Thanks!

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

5 Days Ago

Yes but it must be explained so Donna and i know what it is meant to be

 

Roberta Byram

5 Days Ago

Question: Because I am so intrigued with the container theme...I am seeing them everywhere in everything! Is it against the rules for me to process ahead of time those that I would upload on days I am traveling? I am traveling 2 of the 4 weeks in this time period. If I process in advance, I could send and save on my laptop and then when I am out of town, I could upload to FAA from my hotel room. Is this against the rules? It would take a lot of time and planning and not sure I could even then make it work, but thought I would ask.

 

Katrina Gunn

5 Days Ago

I've been dithering and on the fence, looking at the latter half of September on my planner, and yesterday added another thing. Sigh. I don't think I can do it, due to scheduling conflicts.

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

5 Days Ago

Roberta, you have to do something to the image on the day you load it.


1. Your image must be created the day you post to the challenge thread. This challenge is for NEW work only

Although we do allow a previous work to be edited or finished on the day

 

Sarah Niebank

5 Days Ago

Thanks for that! disregard email :)

 

Sue Capuano

I'm in, so many interesting possibilities come to mind!

 

Luther Fine Art

5 Days Ago

umm.... I am not sure I can come up with 30 days worth stuck in the middle of nowhere and we may be gone some... There are no ships in the Midwest USA.. But I am willing to give it a shot.... May not make it through this one though...

Btw, I just finished my 3rd one... does that mean I can start posting images to the group??

Not sure how that all works!

 

Donna Mibus

5 Days Ago

Pamela, that's correct! I need to edit the Group and add you to the official Addict Club list, too!

Roberta, to add to what Abbie said, that's what I find really beneficial about these Challenges, is having to often work around daily obstacles, like being out of town, having the power or internet go out, etc. :-)

 

Donna Mibus

5 Days Ago

Abbie I'm so sorry to hear about your long lasting migraine! :( I pray it stays away!

 

Milija Jakic

@Abbie, nice new avatar & new background....
Thx for the ARCH Certif!!! LOVE it!!!
Dr Axe may have some helpful info for your integrative health...

@Luther we can inspire ea other... finding containers outta nowhere land!!!
I've got a ton of fanny packs if nothing, and I know my hubby eats more cereal than cookies!!!

@CAC members... How can we, our art, creativity be CONTAINED??? Now that's a questions for us to ponder this challenge!!!

GJ Inspiration to her CAC Member muse: I hope these Containers will INSPIRE how I can find ways to PKG, BUNDLE, mix & match cards, decor & gifts... Any ideas if that is possible via FAA/Pixels Fulfillment???

Appreciating positivity comments-
Q: Do you have any thoughts about my using the IMAGES part of my page & throwing up anything goes, like all these challenges... While I set the PUBLIC VIEWS to view 1st by COLLECTIONS. I know that some of what I put out to meet the daily challenge is STUDIO behind the scenes... Tho I'm actually having fun sharing this behind the scenes... Like the inspiration of D5 of ARCH just transformed into 6 abstractions that was totally fun & new photo art...

 

Kathy K McClellan

Abbie, Healing thoughts for you. Thank you for doing our certificates for these challenges.

Please sign me up. Like several others I may or may not be traveling but do not want to miss this if it's at all possible for me to finish.

 

David Dehner

OK - sign me up please Abbie - I think I see another series in my immediate future

 

Luther Fine Art

4 Days Ago

Thanks Abbie and Donna for the official member designation! I’m having so much so far!

Question: can the container show the item(s) it’s containing ? Examples might be Vases with the flowers, wine glasses with the wine, steamy coffee in the cup, etc???? Etc etc etc

 

Kerry Mitchell

4 Days Ago

Please add me to the list, thanks!

 

Please me!!! Thank you!

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

4 Days Ago

Yes, the item may show what it contains as long as it shows what the container is also

Flowers in a vase is perfect as long as the vase is shown

 

Milija Jakic

Okay, my first challenge and you're going to give me a 30-day challenge?! GULP.

Lindley Johnson

I'm sorry to have to miss this one, it sounds intriguing. But I have a lot of pictures of animals from my recent trip to Kenya to process and upload. Hopefully I'll be in for the next one. I'll take a peek at everyone's submissions, though.

 

Sandi OReilly

Traveling these two months off and on in the mountains, but sign me up, please, enjoy the challenges (addicted) so going to try!!!

Abbie, hope that migraine is totally gone!!!! and thank you!!

 

Sarah Niebank

One last question: do we need to choose a different type of container each day or can we do a series of one type of container. TY🙂

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

Whatever you wish to do

 

Tatiana Travelways

" Ships are containers"

Clarification, please: .... are all boats containers too?

What about other transportation vehicles that have a space (cavity) where people or other things can go inside, like wagons, pick-up trucks, etc. ?

 

Tatiana Travelways

3 Days Ago

PS :)

What about cages (like bird cages), or traps (like lobster traps - I have lots from the Atlantic Canada)?

 

David Choate

3 Days Ago

I'd like to give it a go.

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

3 Days Ago

I think containers is a very simple word. It means something that contains something else. I can't go into every single container in the world as I'd be there forever. Simply use your common sense.

 

Tatiana Travelways

3 Days Ago

Correct - Thanks! :)

* Just wanted to avoid disqualification.

 

Wow...I hit the "motherlode" of containers! I went to a flower shop that I used to go to all the time and asked if I could take some pictures and they said "yes", so I took 115 pictures of the flower arrangements, vases, and other containers that I can work on for the next 30 days! I wanted to do a floral theme and now I can. Wheeeee!

 

AWAY - Abbie Shores

3 Days Ago

LOL Rose... it is only 30 days ;)

 

LOL, Abbie...but it takes me a "gazzilion" pictures to get one good one!

 

David Choate

2 Days Ago

Is it allowable to use the same container more than once --but photographed in different ways, or settings, or perhaps one in black and white, and another in color?

In other words, it would not be the exact same photograph, just the same container shot, for example, in different lighting or processed differently than the previous one.
