CH101-x – What to do if I am in a Bach with no wifi?

What if I travel somewhere over the holidays and there is no wifi?

You take a deep breath and thank goodness for your blessings.  I mean honestly, we live in NZ and we have so much beauty, forget the wifi!  Go make a s’more instead

Even if there is occasional wifi I encourage you to disable it on your phone till you get back home.   Have a dopamine holiday. You have our permission to take the time completely off.   See if there is a camera available and use the time to experiment with that instead of your phone.   Then just show us the photos a day we missed when you get back.  Relax…be one with nature…

The only difference is that you will not be able to compete in the shooter of the week competition if you aren’t back by Sunday at 3.  But you can keep your Photo a day streaks up if you commit to shooting at least one image every day.   Just post them when you get back to civilization.

Here is the list of the competition images from each week. 

  • 20-26th – Who are you?  And what is your superpower? – Self Portrait
  • 27- 2nd – What inspires you? – Homage to your favourite artist using the element water in the shot.
    • He aha te mea whakahihiri i a koe?
  • 3-9th – Who matters to you?  – Portraiture using the element of air/wind in the shot and experimenting with Aperature.
