Photo Challenge – White-on-White

This week’s Photo Challenge was actually a “Do Over” week. Since I’ve been doing a lousy job of getting my homework done lately, I had plenty of challenges to choose from.  I was struck by the light coming through the shade in my laundry room so I decided to do the “White-on-White” challenge with a little Liquefy treatment of my shade.

Photo Friday – Silhouette

I am having a bad string of not getting my homework done for the Photo Challenge class so again, I am heading back into the archives to find something to share this week.  (And, many thanks to Shutterfly for organizing my photos so nicely to make this task easier.)

The challenge from a few weeks ago was to take a silhouette.  I didn’t get that one done in time, but here’s a favorite silhouette from a bike trip for the Tour de France in 2004.

Photo Friday – Found Alphabet

This photo challenge was a fun one. The assignment was to shoot a “found alphabet,” to find our initials in things that weren’t actually letters. So, I took my phone out with me on a walk to specifically look for letters and found some that would work. Then the next day, I was sitting on the dock while my family swam when I looked over and realized that my daughter’s snorkel was a J and the mask was a B. A couple of quick snaps later and I had my initials:

Photo Friday – Sant’ Antioco

I didn’t get my photo challenge homework done this week either (silhouette). So instead, I am sharing a photo of some sun from the island of Sant’ Antioco off the coast of Sardinia.  When I started planning my “Running with Scissors” quilt months ago, this image is what I had in mind when I started.  My challenge then was to use the color “Shocking Pink” and I first thought of colorful island houses like these.

Photo Friday – Stuck in Place

A year ago I don't think that I could have done this exercise; I would have spent the time thinking about all of the things on my to do list that weren't getting done. But, I'm relaxing a bit so I found the hour meditative and enjoyable. I did not, however, get any shots that blew my socks off. Still, I had great fun playing with my zoom lens.

This week’s assignment: stand in one spot for an hour taking pictures.  You can see my spot in the photo in the top left of this montage – the edge of my deck.  The best of the photos I took are the remaining ones. Nothing worth framing, but not a terrible way to spend an hour either.
