2017 PhotoChallenge.org Week 42: Wheel of Photography

week42_street_orange

I recently joined a new (to me) photo challenge at PhotoChallenge.org. For this challenge, you are supposed to take a new photo for the challenge and not dip into your archive. For this week, we got to spin the double wheel of photography. I got Street Photography and the Color Orange. I know that this is not what is meant by Street Photography, but I’m not sure I’ll make it downtown this week, so this is as close as I might get. This is a street close to my home. (It’s almost urban, so it should count, right?)

Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Pedestrian

Very few cars are allowed in the small Swiss town of Gruyère, so you have to be prepared to walk when you go there.

A Photo a Week Challenge: At the Edge

edge_nmp

So many photos are taking on the edge of things: cliffs, shores, piers, lives. As photographers, we have the opportunity to capture timeless, solid views and brief, passing moments — all at the edge of something. This view is the edge of the pier at Daybreak Lake, part of a newer community in the Salt Lake Valley. The lake is a perfect setting for photo shoots, but I also found serenity in the bare scene itself.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO FROM OR REPRESENTING AN EDGE.

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. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Mountain

horizon_nmp

The world has amazing natural features. Valleys, oceans, rivers and lakes, and mountains cover out planet. This week, we are focusing on mountains. Whether you live near towering peaks, rolling hills, or a landscape as flat as a pancake, chances are you have visited and photographed a mountain. Sometimes up-close and personal, and sometimes from a distance, like this shot of Diamond Head on Oahu, Hawaii. I can’t remember the name of the lookout where I shot this image, but it gave us the most amazing view of Honolulu and the volcanic mountain peak that dominates it’s southeastern shore.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING MOUNTAINS, HILLS, AND PEAKS OF ANY KIND.

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

Exchange Place in downtown Salt Lake City has some amazing older buildings that are great for a more urban but still classy shoot.

These are the doors to the Bern Cathedral. We stopped to listen to the A’capella group singing, and I nabbed this shot. So glad I did.

Thursday Doors

These amazing doors are to the old City and Country Building in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The lovely girl posing in front of them is my cousin’s daughter. She picked this location for her senior photos. Great choice.

This is my entry for Norm 2.0’s Thursday Doors challenge.
