Thankful November 26th: Love

There are many things that we can live without: extra money, going to movies, a house as big as the Jones. There are some things we can’t live without: food, water, air, and love. Studies have shown that without love, newborn babies stop thriving. There are so many different ways to show love: spouses and partners, friends, family, even complete strangers. The Beatles said all we need is love, and to some extent, they were right.

Trevor Carpenter PhotoChallenge 2019 Week 23: Joy

We were in Hawaii in November taking photos for a friend’s wedding. His nephew asked me to take pictures of him proposing to his girlfriend after a skydiving group activity. (It was the day after the ceremony.) Although they had been talking about getting engaged for a while, she was completely surprised by the timing. I think the tightness of her hug says it all.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Happiness Is…

Our daughter is getting married a week from today (PSA: there will be no challenge next Thursday). They asked me to take their engagement pictures (and no, I am not shooting the wedding). The wedding will be in one of the Salt Lake Valley canyons, so we went there to take the photos. We are so happy for them. They are perfect for each other. They make each other happy, as you can see from these pictures. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for them. (P.S. Sorry about the photo dump. We’re a little proud of our children.)

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY OR THAT SHOW HAPPINESS.

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.
