It is Friday : Photo 101Rehab

Dear readers and followers,

Three weeks ago I have started the Writing 101 course, as some of you may have noticed. I am enjoying the course and learning a lot, and hope you will benefit from better quality of my ramblings.

Heartfelt thanks to all of you, who have been overwhelmingly encouraging my learning process.  It means a lot to me. Being part of a supportive community of talented and inspiring bloggers is what makes this blogging experience worthwhile.

I haven’t ben able to regularly read and comment on your posts. I would like you to know that I haven’t forgotten you. It has just been too much activity on my blog, besides, having a life outside the blogosphere.

For now, I just want to wish you a wonderful weekend.

Warm regards from Amsterdam.


 I am posting for the Photo101 Rehab, the event for everyone who loves photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters, or just curious , anyone is welcome), and wants to join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with.

Want to know how to join? Check below.

Here is what ‘The Clinic Photo Rehab is:

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How to join:

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

      1. No worries at all, Lucile!
        Your words here are just as sunny as the sky in NYC today! Thank you!


    1. Sorry Nalinki, I am so late to thank you for the best wishes. Hope you read that I was offline a few days. I am catching up with comments.

  2. ¡Una gran foto Lucile!
    Ya he ido viendo tu gran actividad estas semanas y me he preguntado como puedes escribir tanto a diario, y además poner tantas magnificas fotos, a mi me faltan horas para algo así.
    Pero me encanta.
    Buen fin de semana y disfrútalo mucho.
    Un abrazo.


    1. Thanks, Janet.
      Sorry for such a late reply. I’m catching up with comments after having been offline a few days.
      Hope you are having a good weekend.


          1. Yes, I agree, Photo 101 was very special, also I felt in Writing 101 there was less interaction work out hosts, it felt quite “clinical” and distant at times?


            1. Precisely! Very clinical. I haven’t seen any interaction except for the daily prompt. I found even strange to encourage the group to use the #writing101 and read there instead of The Commons. Bottom line: little interaction.
              I had the impression that I could as well just read the ebook and do the course alone.

  3. Absolutely lovely photo Lucile. And I do not feel ignored at all :). I am amazed at your ability to create so much beauty daily through your photos and through your words (both here and with generous comments on other’s blogs).


    1. Lisa, thank you so much for your understanding and support. I really don’t like to not have time to read your blog and of others that I follow. I surely feel bad to not reply timely to the kind comments I get.
      But following this course whilst having all other daily activities, has been a burden that I had not anticipated. Adding to that the fact that I was off-line for a few days, hasn’t been helpful.
      Thank you so much for this lovely and generous comment.

      1. You are too hard on yourself Lucile. You are one of the most active and INTERACTIVE bloggers that I know. Not quite sure how you manage it. So glad to have met you here. Do not respond to this comment – just keep creating beauty!


  4. What a great photo– I’m always looking for “big sky” moments and you’ve captured exactly that. The way the clouds sweep forward, giving is such a sense of enormity. And well balanced too, with the subtle city sky-line on the horizon. I love the colors, the layers of the clouds themselves… everything. Keep it up!


    1. Thank you so much for a very thorough and considerate comment.
      Living in Amsterdam, Holland – where we have unstable sea weather – gives me many opportunities to play with clouds and lights. I am happy you liked this photo.
      And apologies for replying so late. Have been a few days offline.
      Thanks for dropping by.


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
