Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20 – Random

This week’s theme gave Challengers a chance to just get out and shoot and to worry less about the theme as the prompt for Week 20 was Random.  Some choose random things, others random  moments which was what Beth Pack chose to do in her image below.  I love this image because even though it’s a seemingly random shot of her son and husband, it tells the viewer so much about life at this particular moment in time.

Take 52 Weekly Photo Challenge – Week 12: Score

For this week’s theme I thought we were about to be inundated with sports shots and although this week’s image is absolutely of a sport I consider this more of an abstract shot.

Take 52 Weekly Photo Challenge Week 11 Critique

This week’s theme was Unlucky and I had a hard time picking an image to critique as there were so many awesome ones in the group.

Take 52 Weekly Photo Challenge week 11

Shutter Speed: 1/125

Aperture: f/4

ISO: 400

I love this particular shot of Wendy Dunne’s as it reminds me of my childhood and the game we used to play when walking home from school – trying to avoid stepping on the cracks in the footpath.
