Week 45: Wrap up Photo101 Rehab

We are approaching the first anniversary of the Photo Rehab Event in this blog, a ‘healing clinic’, for all of us who love photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters and enthusiasts) who missed the course and daily interaction with other photo-bloggers.

Every week I have the pleasure to share their impressive photos and to welcome new ‘patients’.  I am overwhelmed and grateful for all support received from those who submit entries to those who simply appreciate the photos and visit the blogs of the participants.

The Photo Rehab is truly a great community to share photos, learn new techniques, discover new talents, and connect. Sharing and learning from each other is the best way to strengthen the community of photobloggers.

It is also a fantastic opportunity to virtually travel around the world and see its beauty from new and diverse angles and perspectives. This week’s featured image is from Badfish out of Water. Please welcome Duncan, the 13 y/o hermit crab and beloved pet of Badfish. This week, he arrested my heart with Duncan’s tale. You need to read this post!

You will see this week’s latest pictures, but I encourage you to follow the links below to visit the blogs of all ‘patients’!  Every photo has a link to their blogs, so that you can see much more from their work. Don’t miss to visit them!

The stage is theirs!

Andy Townend shares  his monochrome mastery on Project 365 mobile, Poetry Rehab, The List entry to writing101 course as well as Single and Abundance. You can also see Ornate, his beautiful entry to WP Photo Challenge.

Badfish out of Water doesn’t post often, but when he does, there is a crowd eagerly waiting for his enticing, funny, smart stories. His tales come with equally amazing photos that hook everyone’s attention in the comments area, which are so popular that was baptized by Debbie at Spaceship China as the BadFish and Chips Cafe. Despite his unrelenting scientific fascination with poop, I hate, *coughs* err (love) him.

Mitch Zeissler’s at Exploratorius set of photos is a delight to the eyes. Dawn, pre-dawn, autumn colors, monochrome and a breathtaking sky.

Lois at On Pets and Prisoners, shares this stunning smile on this portrait and a quote which is very appropriate at the start of a new week.

“Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.”

—Mother Teresa


Desley at Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist. We heard of storms down under but Desley was brave to capture the forces of Her Highness Nature at play and is sharing here breathtaking shots! Her dog GG is still scared!

A warm welcome to River Writer, who joined us this week with fabulous flowers in monochrome for her Fridays Photos post.


Gun from Rantings of a Third Kind is a writer who is also passionate about photography. Visiting her blog you surely enjoy inspiring poetry and gets to see Finland at night, and its beautiful autumn views.

Janet at This That and the Other Thing entry is part of her submission to Wordless Wednesday…Blowin’ in the Wind. She’s a nature lover and we are lucky to appreciate the gorgeous photos from her morning walks. She shares with us superb images of her interpretation of ‘Light’ to brighten our new week.

The Snow Melts Somewhere local discoveries of nature brings the magic of the forest at sunset with its majesty. Enjoy superior beauty!


Thank you everyone for bringing breathtaking, insightful, fun images entries!

If you didn’t see your photos here, apologies. I used all links to my blog, tags on the reader or entries to InLinkz. Make sure to add them there next time and let me know if it didn’t work. 

You can visit all other photos of all patients here: Photo Rehab 


Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7

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. 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.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Trigger Happy, 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 does it work:

  1. Shoot a photo.
  2. Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to add a link/Pingback to or any of my posts and to use the tag #PhotoRehab or #Photo101Rehab, so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
  3. Alternatively you can also add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and to the overall audience of the Photo Rehab. This is the best way for your photos to be seen. 
  4. Here is the link to add your photos. Knock the wall of the Clinic… and click on the image below:

  1. Hahahah! I quote: “his unrelenting scientific fascination with poop.” I must argue this point. My unrelenting fascination is just about as ‘UN-scientific’ as we can get. Maybe it’s not even a “fascination.” It just appears in my life. I walk, there it is. I sit, there it is. It’s like this: It happens. And there I am. I think IT has a fascination with me is more like it.


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