A Photo a Week Challenge: Flying

flying_nmp

I love flying. I love traveling and visit new places, and the fastest and easiest way to get somewhere far away is flying. I’ve flown around the world (almost literally). I’ve been to Korea and Europe, the South Pacific and Great Britain. I’ve flown across the United States multiple times. However, I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed flying as much as my sweet little subject for this great family photo shoot. She loves lying on her stomach and flinging out her arms and legs. Her mom and grandmother were standing behind me, encouraging her. And I got to experience joy front and center.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) THAT FEATURE FLYING OR FLIGHT.

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wishes

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
If turnips were watches, I’d wear one by my side.
If “if’s” and “and’s” were pots and pans,
There’d be no work for tinkers’ hands.

During a newborn shoot, the big brother fell asleep and we couldn’t resist taking some pictures of them sleeping side-by-side. This bottom shot was irresistible.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Good Times

just_for_fun_nmp

Humans are social creatures. It’s in our nature to meet together and enjoy the company of friends, family, and even strangers. Concerts, sporting events, weddings, or just meeting a friend for lunch or a movie. In uncertain times, we cling to relationships to help us understand, cope, and make it through. In good times, we gather to celebrate the joys in life.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS FEATURING GOOD TIMES.

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.
