A Photo a Week Challenge: New Photo, Open Topic


It’s been a very tense couple of months, and I’ve found myself not taking my camera out with me as much as I used to. So for this week’s challenge, I decided that I needed to take a new picture. Of anything. Just get the camera out and take a picture. Well, today is mine and my husband’s 9th wedding anniversary. We’ve been wanting to get a Traeger smoker/grill from some time and finally decided that for us, at least, the 9th anniversary is the grill anniversary (not the pottery one, as all of the traditional lists will tell you). Today, my loving hubby smoked and then grilled a couple of elk pot roasts on our new toy. The meat was delicious, and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase (unless it could have cost a little less money). And just in case you were thinking I should post a picture of the grill, maybe next time.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. I totally understand what you mean. My cameras have been seriously underused this winter. We’ve been busy, tired and frequently not feeling well. You jolted me into taking some pictures, so thank you for that and your roast look REALLY good!

    Happy Anniversary!
