Wednesday Walk make me smile post - Downtown Milford CT

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Note I want to thank @bluemist for sponsoring this challenge starting from this week, due to their support I will be from next week sending out Steem to a selection of people who partake in the Wednesday walk as I will explain in the guidelines below all of the liquid rewards for this post will be shared with a selection of participants.

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending some Steem to a selection of those who participate, please note this is a change from sending out SBI shares, as I did in the past.


A good App that works well in conjunction with the Wednesday Walk or any day walk is @actifit, which rewards you with Actifit Tokens and Steemit Upvotes, if you use the app to track your steps and do a post of your actifit total each day.

If you do a lot of activity I do recommend you check it out

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poem,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF.
b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT
c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

So the collaboration giveaway is as follows
As well as the SBI shares normally given away from the Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenge, we will send one SBI Share each to one lucky winner who joins both challenges in one post

A walk around Downtown Milford CT

As you will no doubt guess, these shots are from a little while back, I haven't started the year well with a lot of walking for a variety of reasons, but since I host this challenge I have to do a post ;)

This was a walk a did one day starting at my house and walking to Downtown, Passing over the bridge with this view

As @elizacheng and I collaborated with our Wednesday Walk and Make me Smile Challenges

And one person is randomly drawn who joins both challenges to receive one Steem from me and this week it is @TBA

I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

I really like these little downtown areas that have a cannon here or there. There is a small park area in Petosky, MI that has a cannon in it. My wife and I had lunch at one of the picnic tables there during our first anniversary.

I like them as well, this one was in a fort that used to be here and the family that owned it donated it tot he city

That is very cool.

thank you for the steem. I love joining the walk because I love to share to the world how wonderful my country is. It also helps me to give an idea what to post every Wednesday..

Most welcome and glad you enjoy the weekly walks and join in :)

Always enjoy photography from Milford town, quaint, picturesque, eye candy.

The second photo today would be my choice with the affect you obtained with the cannon and old building not only reflecting life on the glass windows, also bringing life to the brick work.

I do love Milford and will miss it when we move, thanks for your feedback and looking again at the second photo I wish I had used it for the first photo in the post :)

Thanks so much for joining

Cheers and !BEER

And thanks for the kind comment

Always a pleasure 😊


I encourage all people to join in JJ, including myself and today I had an excellent post for this, but not enough tags to include #wednesdaywalk, as steemit only allows 8 tags.
Next time.

Fully understood the tag limit can be frustrating at times
I did not even know steemit had increased to 8 it used to be 5

Yeah, I was also surprised at the increase by steemit.
But I see that there are other front ends that allow many more tags.
I just don't post in them.

Yeah busy allows more and the esteem app less would be good if they were all the same I think

Oh yeah, a bit of unfairness methinks, but it seems that steemit still only recognize the first 5 tags, even though they allow 8.
Why not standardize all front end tags at 12 max across the board.
Many of us will be happy.

I think that would make a lot of sense to have a standard number Esteem App only allows 7, Steemit 8 and some 12 thats crazy

A circus my friend!
Hope you guys have a good weekend.

you to have a good weekend

What lovely photos indeed! I liked the one on the cafe. ^_^

Thanks kindly and thanks again for joining the walk

Thanks kindly off to visit it now

Nice walk around Downtown Milford CT photograohy.


Bright colors ... only in the archives remained. Outside the window is wet and colorless... :-)

Today we had a bit of everything lol

Was weird today as I left the office just before leaving got an alert about strong wind gusts and snow squalls happening I walked out of the building to the sun shining 5 minutes into the walk to the station it was snowing and gusty such a change so quick


Very good! Great idea!
I really love just such walks.
Sometimes I choose a route from work home so as to pass a new road. It is in order to look around, to observe nature. Go down to the sea beach or walk past the lake. It is especially beautiful at sunset.
Oh, I will definitely participate in these walks !!!

Thanks, I do the same before work when the weather is nice, I like to walk a different way each day and often go well out of my way to see what I can find ;)

Would be nice to have you join :)

Hey Man Nice shots. I am about to go on a walk but not sure as cool places to take photos of. I will try to share it.


Thanks and good luck on your walk :)


I don't drink !BEER anymore and never have had hot drinks myself,which some may say is !DERANGED but I do share !COFFEEA` now I must pop to the !MARLIANS !shop soon to pick up odds and ends

Good job ... Congratulations!!!

Thanks :)

I first glanced at your post thinking you had an exceptionally warm period happening in New York then I read that they were from an earlier time!
Beautiful autumn shots! I particularly love the shot with the cannon and the interesting architecture of what looks like a church behind it!
Thanks for sharing!
I have a #Wednesdaywalk to share:

During the warmer months I try and build up a reserve of photos since I get out shouting less over winter

Also on a cold day like today looking back at warmer times helps me cope

Thanks again for joining Wednesday Walk

That looks so amazing :D Congrats!

Thanks kindly 👍🙂👍

Your welcome and it will be my Wednesday routine from now on.

Thats great :)

very beautiful...


The first building has that tell-tale architecture that is surely dated to a certain period in our history. The photos and the town are impeccably clean and so lovely. There isn't one season that I haven't enjoyed here.

Can you tell me what that building with the cannon in front of it is?

Thanks for hosting the WednesdayWalk!

Here is my link:


Thank you always for taking us.

I do love the style in Milford for sure, that building witht he cannon used to be the Fowler Library but now houses the Chamber of Commerce

Totally my pleasure to host the walk :)
