Scavenger Hunt - Week #1

The photo group I belong to is doing a “Photo Scavenger Hunt.”  Our team organizer will email us a weekly “list” to photograph.  If we choose to participate, we have one week to hunt, photograph, and post the image(s) to our individual blogs.

Here is our first week’s “list”:
“Photograph a ‘something’ that separates something/anything else’ into TWO sections.”

Hmmm…this required some thinking…and hunting!

This was fun…I’m ready to go hunting again!

A few weeks ago my friend, Linda, posted some awesome “splash” images that she shot at a workshop (check out this link):  imagesisee
I was so impressed by her photos that she kindly offered to teach me this method. 

Last Monday afternoon we set up the photo shoot at Linda’s house.  By the time we finished, there was quite a wet mess in her bathroom, but she didn’t seem to mind a bit.

Thanks, Linda, for being such a good friend.  I had a blast creating these images!

Sunday, July 8, 2012 Living Color!

Field trip time!  My photo group went to Saratoga one afternoon this week.  Our assignment:  black/white street photography.  We were instructed to shoot in b/w, but I found some scenes that I just had to capture in living color.

 Saratoga…the August July place to be!

An Act of Kindness

Times are tough.  Life is tough. 

Many of my co-workers will not be returning when school opens in September.  A very good friend of mine is one of those casualties. 

Yesterday was my friend’s last day of employment.  She called, excited about showing me a “photo op.”  That’s just like her, always thinking of others.  Concerned about how she was holding up, I planned on popping in on her, anyway.  Besides, I couldn’t let her go without a goodbye hug!

When I arrived, on her desk was a gorgeous bouquet of flowers – a very thoughtful gift from a co-worker.  Her lovely flowers were ablaze with color and contrast.  She was right; it was a beautiful photo op!

The above images are not of my friend’s flowers; they are mine, a birthday gift a few months ago from another thoughtful friend.  But they do represent a lovely act of kindness by one individual to another.

Love and kindness are never wasted.  They always make a difference.  They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.  ~Barbara DeAngelis
