I might add that there are over 2500 members, many of them professional photographers. So there are a lot of stunning photos posted each week, many of them of people. I don't have any cute kids hanging around everyday to capture in mega pixels, so my photos tend to be more about translating what's going on in my life into a single image.
Trust me, it's harder than your think. Especially when you get the bright idea that you will chronicle your life in photos and publish a coffee table book in December. So I can't just go out and snap any old photo, it has to be relevant to what's happening in my life.
I'm twelve weeks into the challenge and I thought I'd share what I have so far:
Fresh: Last of the oranges off our tree
Storytelling: Sewing this week
Light: Church on Sunday
A Part of Me: My feet (I always photograph them)
Small: I had been playing my piano this week
Happy: Happiness is making a cake for a friend.
Pastel: No relation to my life, but I was desperate for an image.
And this one was chosen for M4H's weekly "Eye Candy"
Perspective: Eggs were declared good for you and not bad for cholesterol??? I love eggs.
Shapes: My mini-me Colette got a new friend this week - Zanikan.
Nature: Another UTI this week, so lots of fresh, pure water!
Reality: I dreamed of red 6" heels one night, but the reality is that I can't even wear my wedding heels
Shiny: Dave was a little over-zealous while washing my windows - that be a shiny crack!
Not to make too great a point of it, but it's tough trying to be witty and artsy all the time...I considered scrapping the whole thing, but it's a challenge, Laurel! Oh, did I mention that I'm taking most of my photos with my iPhone, just to make it harder, cuz that's way I roll!
What would you have photographed for each of these themes?
