Mundane Monday Challenge #150 : Learn Photography

Mundane Monday Challenge | Week #150

Everything that has ever created has to go through its life cycle. Even creation of a creative process has to end.

The end of the life cycle is termination!

Dear MMC community. I have a news for you. The news isn’t a very happy one. I just wanted to let you all know that this will be the last MMC post.

150 weeks! Not a small time frame! We have been through very interesting journey. Some stayed from the beginning, some joined in between, some got busy with their real life, some got hooked, some got addicted, some learned, some shared, some stayed, some left. It’s been great to know you all and to interact with you all. Its been amazing to share this weekly event with you all. But now it is time to wind this up.

I’ve enjoyed doing MMC and seeing the changes in many of the people who stayed for long. I could see the change in their focus, the efforts one had put in to improve, the way someone started applying the composition rules, the changes made by rule of third and such tiny details. I took personal pride in those improvements. I took pride in knowing most of the members by their first name. Yes, I really enjoyed doing it.

Lately MMC has turned out more like a job to me and  sort of becoming an MMB,  Mundane Monday Blues! Also, there was a gap between my initial vision of what MMC should be and what it has turned out.

I have a bad history of leaving things that I didn’t enjoy doing. I think now that same history repeats once again.

I will be focusing more on things that I enjoy doing. I will be telling you more travel stories and sharing more travel information. If you are still around, you can support me by giving your valuable feedback on them.

If anyone wants to continue MMC on their blog, you may feel free to organize MMC on your blog. Let me know if there is any volunteers.

Thank you so much for being a part of my life for 150 weeks! The coming Mondays will be different for me for sure!

    Oh dear! I’m sad to see this go but I totally understand. Our real lives do get in the way of the virtual one and once something becomes a tedium, it’s time to let it go. All the best Jithin and hope to see you around.

    I’m sorry to see MMC go, but maybe it will continue with Kottaway. Thanks for doing it for over 2 years! It’s good to step away from something when it becomes a chore and interferes with your other passions. Best wishes for your future writing and photography projects!

      Thanks a lot for your continued support. I am still struggling to be consistent with my travel writing. All these support will help me. Thanks again.:)

    Hi Jithin:
    I am interested in continuing Mundane Monday. I would be back to the old style, emphasizing photos that are about the mundane in our lives, rather than more technical photography assignments. If someone else wants to take over who is more of a technical photographer, that is ok too….
    ….that being said, if it’s me, how do we transfer it? I would need to let wordpress know and also would it be ok to start with 151? (I feel a bit like I am planning a heist or stepping into someone else’s shoes.) Let me know if and how! And I would want to keep a link to the mundane monday originator. Now I am thinking about passing batons or the Olympic Torch, heh.
    Thank you!

      Good to know that you want to take this up, further. You dont have to contact WP at the moment to begin with. You can inform the other members from recent MMCs who were active that you will be organising the New MMC on your blog. Rest, you know the drill.

    Wow. This is sad news as this was a photo challenge I enjoy. I can understand how you feel as I have had to stop doing something due to time constraints and finding a lack of enthusiasm and, yes the blues.
    Thanks for your efforts over 150 weeks Jithin even though I was only on board for a little while

    Hi Trabloger!
    It’s a sad news indeed. Thanks for taking it up to 150 weeks. I thoroughly enjoyed it, learned a lot, developed an eye for mundane things. Made new friends here saw wonderful photography.
    I could not take part in 2/3 challenges due to some personal reasons.
    All the best for your future. Stay happy, healthy and post photos of wherever you travel. Good luck, for everything you do in life.

      Good to hear that. If MMC changed anyone slightly a bit, the purpose of MMC has been served! So I am extremely happy to hear the changes from your side. Thanks a lot for being there almost all the time. And thank you for the wishes. Yes, I will post travel pictures and stories. 🙂

    Jithin, I really enjoyed MMC and I’m glad through this challenge, I got to meet you.(virtually I mean) I’m a big supporter of doing things as long as the charm stays. So here’s wishing you the best ahead! I’ll be around cheering you always. Good luck!
