Wednesday Walk along East Beach

Wednesday Walk along East Beach

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Any questions about the challenge read the guide at the Bottom of the post ;)

I really enjoyed visiting everyone's post this past week, now that I am not getting out for many walks, it makes me appreciate even more seeing peoples walks all around the world.

The only walks I did this past week were around a supermarket so for todays post I am going to share photos of a way back walk I did a few months ago along East beach here in New Bedford.

A nice long beach and walk that runs from Fort Tabor to the Hurricane Barrier walk well East Beach itself only runs to this pier thingy I share in the first photo, but the shoreline runs along the way, on this side of the pier there is a grass field

This next shot although in B&W thats not why I am sharing it, as I was editing these photos I noticed that at the time I had a lot of spots on my sensor or lens I have a filter I run on photoshop that make sit easy to see the sensor spots and clean then up in photoshop.

if you look closely at the photo will will see all the spots I am referring to, I did also notice them after that walk and cleaned my sensor and camera lenses

Weekly giveaway of shares

This week I am sending to the following who joined Wednesday Walk, for this week I did a random draw and the following each received some Hive @mrnightmare89 , @cmplxty @borniet, @hoosie, @eolianpariah2

And @elizacheng will send to @prudens

As @elizacheng and I collaborated with our Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenges

And one person is randomly drawn who joins both challenges to receive one Hive from me and this week it is @TBA

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

Just one Wednesday Walk tagged post a week

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and re-Hiving the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk.

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poem,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF.
b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT
c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

Hi @tattoo-djay
Those are beautiful photos as always. That beach is for sure a great place for a walk.

Thanks I do miss my early morning walks at the moment

First of all: Thank you very much!!!!
Second: Wow!!! Those colors in your pictures, the views!!! Love it! Wish I could do my walks on that pier and that beach...

MOst welcome and thank you so much

I am always happy when ever I see your post because it always give my eyes and my heart a great happiness.. kudos for you work and I hope to get to se more of it. Kudos friend

WOW such a kind comment so appreciated

You are welcome buddy

Wonderful pictures you got there sir.

Thank you have a good day

you're welcome

Beautiful sunrises, @tattoodjay !
I forgot it was Wednesday, and you are back in full swing!
I'll do it tomorrow.

Thanks, not quite at full swing but getting back there and a little more active

Thanks for the hive of course. By the way, how did you make your photos look very smooth? It's very beautiful.

Most welcome,

depend son the photos, some i sharpen up some I go for a more surreal feel

Awesome shots! With the weather turning it is getting less and less likely that my wife and I will get out for our walks. Much to Jovi's disappointment! We are thinking about going somewhere for Spring Break and maybe then we will get some good walks in. I feel bad that I haven't posted in Wednesday Walk in quite some time.

No worries about not joining the wednesday Walk, I have bene a bit slack myself, yes winter does make walking a challenge LOL

I must say those views looked sublime, I want to be there right now (I'm so jealous 😅). I bet the air smells fresh and crisp as well... and I need to get out of this city mannn...

And ye the rock walls looked super dope, reminded me of something out of the Stormlight Archive if you've read that series. 🙂

Thanks for sharing! 🍻

I can relate to wanting out of the city, I dont so much miss the time I spent working in NYC

Yep, I can imagine that our posts are great to see now you can’t go for many walks.

The capture with the spots… aaawwww I can imagine the feeling seeing them. You did a great job removing them and editing that photo.

Love your captures of this beach. The sunrise colours are stunning. Very soft. Great lines too 😎😊
Thanks for sharing @tattoodjay 👋🏻

My walk today brings you to the Montmartre in Paris :
Walk around the MONTMARTRE Paris ~ highlights of day 3 - Part 1 in Paris, France 🇫🇷

Have a wonderful day further 👋🏻☀️

Ohh yeah at time sit so so frustrating not gettign out for walks, but its got to be for now

Yes the problem with interchangable lens cameras, is sensor spots will happen, but at least as long as oneis careful they are easy to clean off

Yes, I can imagine… it is for now. One day you can go out more again.
How are both of you?

Yes, the side effects of changing lenses. We have to be careful and clean when needed.
Have a great day further 👋🏻🤓

Yes next year I know I will get out and about again

Lulu has her first physical therapy, will see how that goes

I am hanging in there, my foot feeling the cold, but have to wait till next week for the scan

Good to hear her therapy is soon, good luck. Let’s hope all goes well.
That’s a long wait. But it’s soon too.

Take care both of you 🍀🤗

Wow beautiful landscapes

I love your ocean shots. The black and white is eerie. I pictured a snowy field somewhere in the high plains like South Dakota. A road curving around the bend. A town and fence in the distance.

yeah I dont so often go for mono with beach shots but slipped on in this post


I really love the rock wall and am very mesmerised by the blue-orangey sky. Living in city center, I really love the peace and serenity at beach like this. Our beaches here are mostly crowded with people and not so clean and blue.

Here is my #WednesdayWalk at an indoor playland. 😁


Beautiful images. It is always a pleasure to photograph the sea. It was a sunset?

Absolutely beautiful pictures from the beach, I love the warm sunrise colours in the sky. Thank you for sharing and I hope winter will not be too harsh. Some sunshine on snow would look amazing. Do enjoy Thursday ahead :}

There is no doubt about it. The beach will always be my go-to place. As much as I love forests, my love for salt and sand trumps it.

I especially love the curvature of the shore in the black-and-white shot.

The brilliant red is bold and beautiful! Hi, JJ!

You don't have to walk to far to get stunning sunrise shots though do you!

I hope the legs is getting better!

NO not to far, but the cold is getting to me at the moment so not getting out for early morning walks

thanks have the scan next week and hoping for the best

Hmmm ever thought about escaping the cold and coming back to this side if the earth somewhere...

I hope the results of the scan are better than you imagine!

during winter i do ponder why I didnt settle retire back in NZ where it doesnt get so cold, but i love having the grandkids nearby here

And ypu can't move the grandkids back to NZ?

I'm sure that they would absolute love it...

Ohh they would and the daughter in Law would love to visit NZ, but her family is all here and Mark Lulus son is settled and wants ot stay here

This looks like a beautiful area. Very peaceful so early in the morning!

Thank you for the hive! Went well towards power up day :D!

Beautiful walk and pictures as always! I got my wife a new camera and lens for Christmas, I can’t wait to bring it out and try some photos! It’s getting wrapped first of course lol but I picked up a 24-105 lens figuring that’s a good versatile lens to use.

How is your wife doing? Going to poke around your page to see if I find a post about it.

MOst welcome :)

thanks, and that is a good walk around lens very versatile, I am sure your wife and you will enjoy it

Wife is slowly improving, still cant use that arm much but trying to exercise it a little each day and get the pain to ease and movement to return
