A Photo a Week Challenge: Crossed Lines

crossed_lines_nmp

The art of photography is the study of lines and curves. We are always looking at how lines and curves affect our image. At how converging lines interact with our main subject or subjects. We can become obsessed with the rule of thirds and where those lines line up (hehehe). So for this week, I want you to find lines that cross. My photo was taken on the Big Island of Hawaii at a black sand beach were we stopped to watch sea turtles and the surf. Walking down to the sandy part of the beach, I found this beautiful spot where the tall, almost-vertical palm tree trunks crossed the horizon and a bridge.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF CROSSING OR CROSSED LINES.

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″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Vibrant

While we were in Hawaii in May, I loved the beautiful, vibrant colors everywhere we went. At the Polynesian Culture Center on Oahu, we saw so many different colors, textures, and styles it was a little overwhelming. The world is full of vibrance: color, personality, landscape. The possibilities are endless.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE VIBRANT.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Mountain

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.
