Regular Random: Five Minutes with a Bouquet

Desley Jane hosts this challenge each week and the rules are to pick a subject and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting.

I tend to overthink each shot so I’ve always gone over five minutes in my previous attempts.  But these challenges have helped me realize that I can just trust my instincts and for the first time, I’ve gotten several great shots in five minutes.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with the Sun

The rules of this challenge are to pick out an object and photograph it for five minutes only using different lighting and angles. ( I underscored this because I have problems following the time limit.)

Fortunately we have missed out on the worst of Hurricane Irma but we are still experiencing a lot of rain and wind gusts up to 50 – 55 miles per hour and losing power off and on.  Hurricane Matthew last year was enough for us, thank you very much!  Anyway, there’s no sun today so I decided to make my own.

I love suns and have one in just about every room of the house.  This one sits in my hall and I pulled it out in front of the window to get what light I could.

Thanks to Desley Jane for hosting.  You can find her post here:  https://musingsofafrequentflyingscientist.com/2017/09/10/five-minutes-with-chocolate-cake-regularrandom/

Regular Random – Five Minutes – Flowers on a Grave

The rules for this challenge are:

Choose a subject or a scene and spend five minutes photographing it using different angles and lighting.

On my way home from work the other day, I had a sudden impulse to stop by the cemetery near my home.  I don’t have any family or friends buried there (at least I don’t think so) but it’s calming to walk through and the chapel and grounds are absolutely beautiful.

And for once, I was able to stick with the five minute time limit for this challenge – but only because it was so humid outside!

Photo Challenge – Ooh, Shiny!

This week we are asked to show a photo of something that distracts, diverts or always grabs our attention.  

Jewelry-11

The bigger, the better.  The more colorful, the better.  The more unusual, the better.  Children love them so I get extra hugs with my grandchildren while they’re checking out the “shiny” around my neck.
