Just wondering, do they ever change the shooting dates for a challenge after the challenge is posted? I have some really cool Blue and Yellow pics that I shot shortly after the conflict started. I would love to submit one of them.

Unfortunately for you, we don't do that :-( It's one of the great "mysteries" of DPChallenge, according to some folks, how we manage to post a challenge the day after they see and shoot something cool that "would have been perfect for the challenge!" :-)

In the very early days of DPC this happened to me so frequently I had to consider whether joining the SC enabled Langdon (the founder) to scan my hard drive for ideas ... :-(

Common, people, only 31 entries? Too busy to express your solidarity? Don't care?

That's kinda' negative, Margaret :-( 31 entries is right in the normal wheelhouse for non-archival, themed challenges these days. And I expect we'll see some more before rollover. To imply that "not entering" = "don't care" is kind of below the belt. There are MANY ways of showing caring and involvement.

That doesn't even make SENSE, Margaret. Of course we've noticed. I doubt there's a single DPCer that isn't aware of the situation doesn't deplore it, or that isn't scared.

But that doesn't have anything to do with challenge participation in DPC...

I wanted to enter, but I've had a very difficult two weeks. My Mom passed away on Tuesday.

I actually tried to shoot for the challenge this afternoon but couldn't come up with anything I was happy with. There's still a slim chance I'll enter at the last moment, but I doubt it.

Oh, I'm so sorry :-( Losing a parent is really tough. Wishing comfort to you and all who loved her.

Thanks. It's hard, but I take comfort from the fact that she's not suffering any more. Her last couple of days were really bad.

I, too, am sorry for your loss, Gina. It's always hard, losing a parent.

I'm so sorry!! I lost my mom about 5 years ago. I'm so very sorry for your loss
03/20/2022 08:31:24 PM · #19
So sorry, Gina. Even if she no longer suffers it is a big loss for you. Time will help.
03/20/2022 08:54:02 PM · #20
So sorry Gina. We are never ready even though we know it is going to happen. HUGS!

Oh Gina, my heart breaks for you. It's been 4 years since I lost my mom, and it still hurts. Just know that they live on in our hearts.

Meanwhile, back at the farm, now up to 42 entries, a respectable number :-)

malheureusement, I could find no blue and yellow cows.
