Sunday Stills: #Lazy Days of Summer

Take time to relax

We are almost at the midpoint of August which means for many, summer is nearly over. Sure the weather will still be warm in the northern hemisphere, and maybe too hot on the West Coast (the wildfires aren’t helping matters), but school starts for…

Sunday Stills: You’ve Got a #Friend

Woman with Dog

Who among us doesn’t have a friend? Some have a larger circle of friends, while others have a choice few. Sunday Stills asks us to share an image of “friend.” The featured image above shows my daughter with her best friend Gideon! Here are some…

Sunday Stills: #Drunk with…? or #Summer Drink

Tiki Bar Ready for Fun

The last Sunday in July challenges Sunday Stills participants to find an image depicting “Drunk with…?” Since this is indeed a challenging theme, I thought I would add an optional related theme “Summer Drink.” Your theme can be centered around alcohol but it doesn’t…

Sunday Stills: #Macro or Close-Up Photography; Is there a Difference?

Macro view of sunflower

This week’s Sunday Stills theme is “macro-anything.” Now what does this mean exactly? Macro photography is also considered close-up photography. However, using a true macro lens yields the sharpest, tiniest details whereas a closeup may not show each detail. I got a close-up shot…

Sunday Stills: A Plant’s Life

Quote by Hans Christian Andersen

Thank you to Betty Louise, at Idaho Bluebird, whose blog I have followed for several years. She suggested the theme “plant life” for this week’s Sunday Stills photo challenge. I am enjoying a wonderful weekend in San Diego attending my brother’s wedding. Today’s shots…

The Wonders of the Public Pool

Children playing in swimming pool

I have managed to combine three photo challenges into this one photograph. Summer in July finds children counting the minutes until their neighborhood public swimming pool opens for the day. Although I no longer oversee the daily operations of these pools, I do appreciate…

Sunday Stills: Can You Capture the #Wind?

Windy clouds at sunset

Today’s Sunday Stills theme challenges you to capture the wind! Wind is a very broad theme which is open to much interpretation. Like last week, I challenge you to get creative with your photography or other projects! Perhaps you captured the wind in a…

Still Looking for Photo Challenges?

Summer Zinneas

Since the WordPress weekly photo challenge ended a few weeks ago, many bloggers are still searching for photo challenges in which to showcase their photographic talents and images. The word “challenge” is a bit of a misnomer, as everyone is not necessarily in a…

Sunday Stills: Who Are #Tourists?

Tourists gather on the beach in Coronado

The last week in June finds the Sunday Stills Photo Challenge exploring the theme “tourist.” Summer in the Northern Hemisphere sees an abundance of tourists. We all think we know who tourists are, but did you know that YOU are a tourist? Any time…

Horses in Black and White

White horse at the fence

If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you know I share a LOT of photos, mostly in technicolor! I am happy to write that I am back to stretching my camera lenses with Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenges. This week’s…

Sunday Stills: #Twin Fathers

Flowers twinned

This week’s Sunday Stills photo challenge theme is “twin.” I posted the above image on Instagram a few weeks ago. The dandelion weed with its twinned shadow, grew in a crack in my driveway and the dual colors of cement made an interesting yin-yang…

Can You Ride A Unicycle?

Something unique for Thursday Doors today! As I turn my attention to taking part in new and old photo challenges, I came across these photos of not one, but two cute girls, with doors as their backdrop for some fun! In the featured image…
