# Our last Flickr Friday theme was #ArtNouveau. This is a selection of our favorites from your submissions.

FlickrFriday invites you to imagine in a bigger scale. The landscapes and moments you share with us every week belong to the core of the group. You let us have a wonderful takeoff and we invite you to keep sharing the best of your shots.

Dreams are a big part of imagination and you showed us the connection where the ethereal spirit surrounded your art. Delicate shapes and pale colors were part of the prominent factors. Images like nature embracing life, flowers in different patterns or old memories about Vienna and Gustav Klimt were part of this beautiful collection. You can see, enjoy and share more of your submissions at the Flickr Friday group pool.

When the time of waking up from this fantastic dream arrives, we invite you to prepare your imagination because we know our next theme: #TheFinalFrontier will be challenging. Get your camera ready and start exploring new worlds. The next selection of your images will be showcased right here on the Flickr Blog next Friday. If you would like to invite your friends to take part in this week’s challenge retweet us or share our status.

Stunning sea slugs

Peltodoris atromaculata

Glossodoris sp.

There’s nothing dirty about being a Nudi Lover. We found that out by visiting the * NuDI LoVERS * group, which contains a photo pool of sea slugs — or more scientifically known as nudibranchs. With over 3,000 species of them, the soft-bodied mollusks come in many variations in seemingly limitless shapes and colors to mimic their surrounding sea-bottom plants and coral reefs.

Once you see one, it’s hard not to explore more. Their bright neon hues and flexible forms will bring out the inner nudi-loving in you, and plenty of underwater photographers have kindly share their portraits of these amazing sea creatures.

See, and share, more snapshots in the Stunning Sea Slugs gallery and Nudibranch group.

Perseid meteor shower 2013

Starting in early August and peaking this past weekend, Perseid meteors streaked across skies around the world. The Perseids, named for the constellation Perseus from which the meteors appear to emerge, arrive when Earth passes through debris left by the Swift-Tuttle comet.Yahoo! News

To catch this celestial event, many of you put your time-lapse and exposure-setting techniques to the test in droves. Featured here, the light streaks in the night skies are exceptionally captured from the U.S. (New Mexico, Oregon, California), Scotland, and Ukraine.

See, and share, more astrophotography in the Perseid Meteor Shower 2013 gallery and Astronomy group.

Through the welding glass

The other day our very own morozgrafix shared some amazing long-exposure shots taken in the Bay Area. Immediately, we wanted to know more about how he achieved these nearly magical colors. It turned out he used a simple, easily reproducible technique: Instead of an ND filter, he put welding glass (which comes in a variety of tints) in front of his lens while shooting, making it possible to take the shot in broad daylight.

Above is only a small selection of the many great shots you have taken using the technique. If you want to give it a try, the Welding mask glass filter group and the pictures’ description provide a great wealth of tips and recommendations, as well as details on the glass color used.

We are happy to announce that The National Museum of Denmark joined The Commons on Flickr today. The National Museum is many museums in one: It is Denmark’s largest museum of cultural history and includes the Open Air Museum, the Museum of Danish Resistance, Royal Jelling and 9 other museums.

The museum’s photographs come from all over the world, and cover many periods. In the museum’s photostream you can explore beautiful photos from Japan taken between 1860 and 1910, occupied Denmark during World War II, and documentary photos of Africa and the Virgin Islands (then called the Danish West Indies) with much more content to come.

Help make the photographs you enjoy more discoverable by adding tags and leaving comments. Your contributions and knowledge make these photos even richer. You can check out the whole selection in their sets, and we hope you enjoy this collection as much as we do.

The Wild Ones – Sharing Happiness in Texas

A contribution from Sarah Ann Loreth

We are continuing our travels across the United States, moving east toward Florida over the last week and a half. We have enjoyed the beautiful landscapes of Zion National Park, Monument Valley, Mesa Verde and White Sands National Monument and met so many wonderful people along the way!

The Wild Ones

A huge part of The Wild One`s mantra and journey is to celebrate and give back to the photography community that exists on Flickr. Through our sponsors, both Flickr and Coca-Cola we have been able to share happiness and pass along our message to so many people along our two month journey. In Dallas, we were able to fully experience the joy of sharing happiness, everything`s bigger in Texas even the happiness!

'The Active Transition'

We`ve been so fortunate to get to know so many talented photographers through Flickr over the years that we`ve been using it and two of those photographers are Justin and Jordan Kuder, brothers from Centralia Illinois. After planning our route and realizing we weren`t going to be visiting the Midwest, we decided to share some happiness with two deserving young photographers and we flew Jordan and Justin to our workshop in Dallas. They spent 3 fun-filled day with us, playing mini-golf and bumper boats, participating in our workshop and exploring the Dallas area. We`re so happy to have had the opportunity to be able to include them in our wokrshops and extend the share happiness message of our tour!

Discharge

The workshop in Dallas was held at the beautiful Dallas Arboretum, specifically in an Alice In Wonderland themed garden. Participants were busy enjoying the warm weather, shooting photos inside the park`s gardens, fountains and walkways.

We still have spaces available in our upcoming workshops:

Tampa – August 12th, Atlanta – August 16th (meetup, not a workshop!) Washington DC – August 19th, New York City – August 24th

To reserve a spot at a workshop please email us at thewildones@rocketmail.com.

life is like a box of chocolates

# Our last Flickr Friday theme was #LifeIsLikeABoxOfChocolates. This is a selection of our favorites from your submissions.

FlickrFriday challenges your imagination and lets you find hidden skills you might not even think you have. We welcome all your dilligence and creativity everytime you share your different perspectives with us.

This time, we were able to see the reflection of life’s spontaneity in your submissions. From the literal caption of chocolates in different presentations and cute pictures about your loved ones, to the reminiscence of the flying feather from the movie Forrest Gump. We really like the way you let us know that life is diverse and full of good surprises. See, enjoy and share more of your submissions in the Flickr Friday group pool.

After all of you chocolate lovers have expressed your free and colorful creativity, we are ready to present our next theme: #ArtNouveau. We are sure this will awaken your ethereal feeling for art, crafts and perhaps architecture. The next selection of your shots will be showcased right here on the Flickr Blog next Friday. If you would like to invite your friends to take part in this week’s challenge retweet us or share our status.
