Celebration (Photo Prompt – 9 June)

Calling all photographers… that is:

  • people who fancy themselves photographers…
  • people who are photographers but don’t fancy themselves…
  • people who fancy becoming photographers…
  • people who… you got it!

Calling also all and sundry non-photographers who have something to say upon the subject of CELEBRATION – being this week’s prompt – in any shape or form, let it be a haiku or cocktail mixing instructions (as long as you’re accompanying it with a photo, obviously)!

To take part in Shutterbug Showcase:
The prompt is “valid” for a week (from Thursday 9 June to Wednesday 15 June).
Please publish your post upon the theme of celebration during this time period on your own blog and leave a link to your post in the comments. Please also visit other participating members’ posts to give feedback!

For inspiration:

The Union Jack flying above the village pub, Cookham, England

England’s gone all patriotic in the last couple of weeks with Union Jacks hanging all over the place: one of the two yearly birthdays of the Queen is being celebrated… (Does this mean she gets two sets of presents?!)

CHANGES TO SHUTTERBUG SHOWCASE:

  1. To make all our lives easier (and provide a little incentive for doing the photo prompt post), from now on whoever does the Thursday photo prompt, will choose the prompt for the week after. The June 16th photo post will be done by @niyati16 – your prompt is: Through the Window.
  2. To help out @piyushavir, I’ve taken over the scheduling of Shutterbug Showcase for July & August. Please tag me, @arwen1968, if you want to nominate yourselves for doing the Thursday photo prompts. Thank you.
    The available dates for July are: 7 / 14/ 21 / 28 July
    The available dates for August are: 4/ 11 / 18 / 26 August

Happy blogging! 🙂

Introducing Guest Author Muhammad Awais

Hello everybody!

There have been so many exciting things happening with my blog lately! Through the voodoo magic of the internet I’ve been able to connect with a graduate student in Pakistan who has done an impressive amount of research on a variety of animals. His current projects involve human-bear and human-leopard conflict, and he’ll be writing the first guest post on The Jaguar. His guest post will be about human-leopard conflict in Pakistan, and it will be released next week.

In order to give people a better sense of who he is, Muhammad has kindly written a brief biography about himself. The bio is now published on my blog, so follow this link to check it out: http://thejaguarandallies.com/2016/01/13/introducing-guest-author-muhammad-awais/

I must say, it’s very exciting to connect with real scientists halfway around the world. I’ve been curious about Pakistan’s wildlife ever since the Mountains episode of Planet Earth featured footage of a snow leopard hunting in the Karakoram Mountains.

Here’s the link again: http://thejaguarandallies.com/2016/01/13/introducing-guest-author-muhammad-awais/

Stepping Down As An Admin!

Dear friends,

In a private meeting I was informed by admins that my presence has been intimidating to many members. As per admins many members approached rest of the admins Kristina and Rashmi and asked them that they were planning on leaving(because of me). I have been asked to step down as an admin and I have accepted this. Before this I received a threat from one member(who said that they would leave unless I forced someone else to apologize) about making another member apologize which I had not accepted based on the events I observed. I apologize to anyone I intimidated unknowingly. It has been wonderful helping you and serving you. 🙂
