A Photo a Week Challenge: Boats and Ships

boats_nmp

We had the chance to cruise around the Hawaii Islands on this amazing (and way bigger than it looks in this image) cruise ship. When we landed at Kona on the Big Island, we had to take smaller tender boats (the orange crafts on the right) to get to shore. It was a lot of fun. I love being on boats of any size, large cruise liners to small fishing boats.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING CRAFTS THAT MOVE ON THE WATER.

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.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Edible

Anyone who knows me well knows my love of fresh fruit, especially berries. Actually, I’m a great lover of food. I think there’s a good chance that without food, I would die. Literally. Food has been the subject of art for centuries. Young art students and grand masters alike have painted and sketched thousands of still lifes of bowls upon bowls of fruit. Photographers are no different. We carefully place each tasty item, make sure the lighting is decent, and snap away. Food is life, in health bodies and in art.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A SERIES OF PHOTOS THAT FEATURE FOOD.

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

I love glass bottles. I love how they feel in my hands. I love how they photograph. Glass provides so many interesting opportunities for images. This week, just go hog wild with your creativity using glass! (P.S. The Mountain Town Olive Oil Co. has amazing oils and balsamic vinegars. We love their products.)

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