Eddie is not a travelling gnome image

The Travelling Gnome Photography Challenge

THE TRAVELLING GNOME CHALLENGE IS FAMOUS – the idea of the travelling gnome being photographed in different locations has been done again and again over the years. But in Week 45 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge, we want you to adopt your own character to be photographed in different places or situations.

It might not be a gnome, but could be a teddy, a doll, or a toy figure; and it might not be Rome, Tokyo and Paris, but the garden, the kitchen and the garage! Yes, we want you to photograph your adopted friend in a different location, or in a different situation, every day for a week.

You can be as creative as you like with the brief. Perhaps your figure will be in a different scenario each day rather than an actual change of location.

Your challenge in Week 45 is to adopt your character, then decide what they will be doing each day.

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock (unless necessary for the particular challenge).

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.
