Photo Challenge – A Face in the Crowd

This week we are asked to share a portrait but with a twist.  We are to use silhouettes, shadows or other techniques that mask the subject but yet still tell a story.

Photo Challenge – Sweet

This week we are asked to share something sweet.

Welcome to Mom Asked Me For A Recipe!  “Mom” is my first blog and it’s what got me interested in photography.  After all, we eat with our eyes as well as our other senses so a pretty plate is the start of a great meal.

For better or worse, life has gotten hectic lately and I’ve had to cut back on some activities.  “Mom” took a lot of time for each post so I haven’t posted on it in a while.

 

But now that I’ve looked back on some of my “sweet” creations, I may rethink that decision so watch for another post soon.

Photo Challenge – Tour Guide

This week we are asked to share photos of where we live.

I usually share beach photos but today, I am showcasing the historic waterfront of Georgetown, South Carolina.  Full of southern charm, Front Street is home to locally owned businesses and some fabulous restaurants…

Photo Challenge – Variations on a Theme

This week, we are asked to show the same thing — an object, place, or person — presented in several different ways.

The beach is literally around the corner and I often stop there to spend a few quiet moments before heading home.  This day was cold so I didn’t stay long but I did get these shots before packing up to go home.  These variations were all taken in a five minute span.

Photo Challenge – Growth

This week we are asked to evoke the excitement of entering a new year with a photo that shows “growth”.

We’ve had rare bone chilling weather this week along with the first snow in many years.  I braved the cold (in ten minute intervals) and captured some beautiful images of the snow and ice.

Blowin' in the Snow

The pond had frozen over but I was surprised to find these wildflowers along the edge had survived the wind and cold.

Photo Challenge – 2017 Favorite

To celebrate the end of the year, this week we are asked to share the most meaningful photo(s) we’ve taken in 2017.

Heron in Pastel

This photo was taken at sunset last month at Huntington Beach State Park.  It was a cool evening and while the colors in the sky were gorgeous, the colors reflected in the water outshone those in the sky.  

As the sun continued to set, the water turned a beautiful gold.  And all too soon, it was time to go home.
