Abstract 2

Out to dinner tonight for my birthday, decided to take a pic of my ice water.  The brownish red color is the table on the other side of the glass.  Put in the Fall 30 Day Photo Challenge for the category Abstract.

30 Day Photo Challenge Day 6

Today's challenge is to photograph an event.  As a reminder, these challenges do not need to be shot in order or even daily.  I am doing mine in clumps throughout July (I recognize I am more creative that way).  I'm expecting to see lots of Independence Day Events, but it can be anything...a birthday party, concert, or even a documentation of an event happening, a child's first visit to the dentist, a fishing trip, a news story - as always open to your interpretation.  Happy Shooting!

Spanish Village Art Center Colored Pathway

I love how this looks like an abstract painting.  These bricks are normally all different colors, I've changed them to blue hues.

With the heat across the country, I decided to post this Snow Cone stand taken last month.  Even just looking at it is refreshing to me.

30 Day Photography Challenge for Summer 2013

Hi everybody!
    I'm excited to share this 30 Day Photo Challenge with you for Summer 2013.  This is the first time I've done this.  I thought it would be fun to push myself as a photographer to come up with some images I would never otherwise shoot. I tried to make the list more conceptual and open to your own interpretation. I hope you will join me for the challenge. There are no rules - anyone, any age and at any level can participate. This can be done day by day, all in one day, on weekends, whatever works for you, but the photos should be taken this summer.  You can do part or all of the list.  I will be sharing photos in the month of August with the photographers name (and link to work if you wish) on my blog.  Please send your images to my email at  The deadline will be August 1 unless enough people write asking for more time.  I will be posting images mid August (date to be announced later). If you would like a printable version of this list, please email and I will send you one.Thank you!

When sending pictures, please make sure your Name, the word and # of the challenge (i.e. 1. Reflection), any links, and any additional information you would like to provide about the image are all included. You can submit one image for each challenge.  If you are under 18, please list your age.  Please no full nudity or violence depicted.
