A Photo a Week Challenge: Brown

Next week is Thanksgiving, so this week the challenge is the color I associate the most with that American holiday: brown. Deep, dark, rich browns are so wonderful for photography. For this little guy, the deep brown blanket was a perfect contrast for his perfect skin and red hair.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) THAT FEATURES THE COLOR BROWN.

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.

Thankful November 14th: Flowers

I love flowers. I love smelling flowers. I love looking at flowers. And I especially love photographing flowers. My maternal grandmother had the most amazing flower garden: roses, lilies, snapdragons, daisies. Each summer, her small yard was transformed by colors and scents that transported us to a fairy world.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Stylish

We are a Converse shoe family. My husband and I wore Converse high tops for our wedding (his were black, mine were white). If there is an unusual color, we buy it. If you have a difficult color to match, we dye them. If we need a flare on them, we paint it on. We love the style.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) THAT SHOWS OFF YOUR (OR SOMEONE ELSE’S) STYLE.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs

Signs are everywhere. They tell us where to go, where not to go, where we are, and where we want to go. Signs can be big, like this one on Cozumel, or very small.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR TWO OR THREE) THAT FEATURES SIGNS OF ANY KIND.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow

To me, yellow is the color of warmth. As children, we learn to make the sun in our drawings yellow. Fire is usually depicted with yellow flames. These small, delicate flowers were growing along the driveway of our family cabin, and even though very small, they were a wonderful burst of color and warmth. I’ve seen these flowers my whole life. We used to pick them and rub the small tuft against our skins, much like a yellow dandelion head. Small, yellow flowers will always remind me of the Utah mountains.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO FEATURING YELLOW.
