#SUNDAYPIXdown–22nd March 2015

Click to embiggenAfter the great success of last week’s “Up” theme, a lot of you have suggested we do the opposite and go down (insert your own joke here). So, take a pic downwards. Maybe of a beautiful floor, the cats having their dinner, grass, discarded burger wrapper, your feet in the shower, whatever. Your new theme is:

 

        Down

 

Take a photograph in a generally downward direction. Post your pics to Twitter on Sunday (including the hashtag #SUNDAYPIXdown in your tweet) and enjoy the hashtag. SpringAs ever, photographs must be yours (or your family’s or your sweaty lover’s) – nowt just nicked off the internet. Yes, you can post an old pic you’ve previously taken, or even one from your family history. Follow the hashtag (click on it in any tweet or add a column to your app) on Sunday to see what others have made of the theme. You are encouraged, nay ordered, to comment on other Sundaypixers’ tweets and admire.

The Darker Playground

Close you are, yet distant.
Afar but at my fingertips, I
Reach across oceans
In dreams and wishes
And take your hand. We
Dance.

#SUNDAYPIXup – 16th March 2015

Roof beamIf you saw an earlier announcement that this would be #SUNDAYPIXback, I apologise. I’ve changed it from ‘On My Back’ because some people thought that meant that they had to photograph something sitting on their back. Which might actually be fun one day, come to think of it. Anyway, that pesky @captain_doodle popped up in my timeline and said “Future sundaypix idea for you, unless uv done it already. ON MY BACK. Take a pic straight up while lying on back. Could be sky, a ceiling, a supermarket roof, a sweaty lover’s face…”. Yes, he actually tweeted ‘uv’ – you should totally judge him for that. So, your new theme:

 

        Up

 

WiresTake a photograph straight up while lying on your back. Well OK, I know that you’re not going to lie on your back on a city pavement, or in the M&S lingerie section, so basically just take a shot straight up in the air as if you were lying on your back. Post your pics to Twitter on Sunday (including the hashtag #SUNDAYPIXup in your tweet) and enjoy the hashtag. As ever, photographs must be yours (or your family’s or your sweaty lover’s) – nowt just nicked off the internet. Yes, you can post an old pic you’ve previously taken, or even one from your family history. Follow the hashtag (click on it in any tweet or add a column to your app) on Sunday to see what others have made of the theme.
