Making the normal or unseen Extraordinary in extraordinary times like these with the EOTB!

March 21st, 2020
Hi guys,

We, as a living 365 community, are surviving daily in an almost surreal time now where the Corona virus is wandering around... Staying safe is important but getting immunity is also important...

In Holland a total lockdown is coming nearer and nearer... There is controlled chaos but no panic. So..., room for a photographic challenge is probably more important than ever ;) So, which (or is it what) challenge can be better and more inspiring than the EOTB?! The good old Eye Of The Beholder.

Thank you all for letting me win my favorite challenge (eotb117) with my 'sinkhole' pic. Thanks to the great host, JackieR, @30pics4jackiesdiamond (tell me more, please, about this name!). We are not going to sink in anything, anywhere! We will rise above ourselves with the pics we'll take from simple, ordinary things, that we'll normally easily overlook. Yes, we can! YOU CAN ;)

When a lockdown is finally there, and, preferably, even before that, you'll just have to look around in your own familiar surroundings to find beauty in the most normal things. Think about washing(machines), vacuum cleaners, garbage, chocolate, eggs, scratches, leftovers, dead flowers, plants, make up, lose paint, rust, groceries, dirty windows, showers, lines, shadows, cleaning stuff, disinfecting, soap, and, sh*t ... Stop me. I could go on forever ;)



Don't overdo the editing though, because that's what the ETSOOI challenge is for ;)

This eotb challenge is backdated to March 8th, so:
start: March 8th
finish: April 13th (24.00 hours in your own time zone)
tag: eotb118

After that I'll set up the voting asap and will be proud to announce the winner who'll be the next host of the eotb.

Please, dear fellow 365-ers, don't be too shy to show us your Extra-Ordinary shots in this thread. It will help you being discovered and noticed by our wonderful and extending 365 family! It also will stimulate this thread to stay visible in the jungle of challenges!

Have fun. Good luck and stay safe!

@stimuloog This started as a spnsored challenge to do a photo a day for 30 days as part of my Duke of Edinburgh Diamond Award, but is was not much of a challenge so I extended it to a year and 4 years later I'm still doing it!!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Haha, great! Thanks! What was the award about?

@stimuloog My daughter worked her way from Bronze to Gold, and was invited to Buckinham Paace to get her award- she could nly take one guest, but a second to go if they were dong/ done the Diamond. I abseilled down a tall tower, walked miles (over many weeks!) and did this. More info here https://www.royal.uk/dofe-diamond-challenge

Hi Jackie, I wondered if you could give me a tip how to make the link that will show all the eotb entries. I just (re)typed the link into the eotb118 challenge but didn’t actually made a link.
Thank you :)

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thank you, but how can I make such a tag and put in into my challenge? I’ve tried several things but can’t work it out :(
March 22nd, 2020
Ahhh after you've typed the link hit return/ enter that may activate it

Also issue with site at moment so that may be part of the glitch???

@ludwigsdiana my girls say I have no sense if danger as I'm getting older!! I just think why not? The organisers make it safe so you won't die!!!

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thanks, but I can’t work it out. Copy and paste works well but I can’t activate the link. I’ll just let it be 🧐
March 22nd, 2020
Any luck yet???
March 22nd, 2020
@30pics4jackiesdiamond no... iI didn’t dare to ask you what the steps are to create the link...
March 22nd, 2020
Dare away!! I'm sorry I can't help 😞

Wonder if @northy or @summerfield could help??

@stimuloog
Marloes, I think your link will not work because you have a photo included in your thread. I found this to be the case when II wanted to do a Weekly SH*T list challenge. Unfortunately Ross was not able to help me then. Links only work with threads with words only.

@farmreporter Oh, thanks! I thought that I was dummer than I thought ;)
