ORANGES Photoblog365

Theme: ORANGES Day: 30/365

Today I discovered the Photoblog365 calendar. I like the idea of a picture a day and the prompt/themes to spur creativity. So at 10:10 PM, I found myself taking pictures of ORANGES (the only thing orange in the house).

I also like the idea of everyone posting the same theme and see what other photographers create

So from 10:30 to 1AM, I found myself trying to post this over and over. I tried saving to draft and it didn't save either.

When I realized it was 1AM and I was trying to post ORANGES...

I confirmed that I need to get a life!

This morning it was still sitting on my laptop acting like it was trying to upload.

So I'll give this one last try-

ODE TO ORANGES

Nicely done!  Sorry to hear you had so much problems posting. Wonder what caused it?

Thanks Camellia!
I ended up closing all windows in Chrome and opening photoblog in Internet Explorer
It has worked magically ever since
Which makes me think it is a browser cache problem.
Glad to have it resolved, at least temporarily!

I like the angle and the reflections in this shot.

I'm not sure it was worth the upload problems! 
LOL

Welcome! I like your new angle on oranges and putting the circle in a square

Welcome to the challenge. Hope it doesn't turn into a technical challenge every day smile

Thanks Bjorn,
Me too! That was frustrating to say the least!
I ended up having to close in chrome and log in on Internet Explorer browser...
It worked!

I read it at Sherry's blog smile I for one always manage to use Chrome (my alternative browser is Firefox), but, just like Sherry, I always reduce my photos to about 25 % of the original size, I know I can keep on uploading for ever if I don't do that.

I tried WITHOUT photos and it wouldn't upload!

Makes sense though, it is a photoblog 😜

I tried it both ways with and without and even tried reducing image size.
I'm sure it was a browser cache issue as it worked when I logged in on IE
I wish there were a troubleshooting guide on here somewhere.

If that kind of thing happens: close your browser, open it again, delete history, try again. Browsers tend to do whatever they did last time if you don't make them forget.

I closed Chrome and logged in on IExplorer
works like a charm
