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.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Construction

While traveling through Switzerland this summer, we were fascinated by how many construction cranes we saw sticking up from picturesque cityscapes.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Waterfront

Water controls so much of our lives. Without it, we literally would not survive. When people settle in a new place, the first thing they have to find is drinkable water. So many towns and cities throughout the world are built on rivers, lakes, and ocean shores. The River Aare runs through the town of Solothurn, Switzerland. Walking along the riverfront in the evening provides lovely views and interesting places to grab anything from a quick drink to a full meal to some delicious gelato.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF 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: Look Down

Salt Lake City and County Building

We are very comfortable with the view right around our eye level. My husband, who is 6’5″, has a much different view of the world than I do at 5’5″. Many times, we fail to notice things right under our feet. Now I will be honest; this view of the historic City and County Building in Salt Lake City is rarely right under my feet. We were lucky enough to win a helicopter ride around the city, and I was able to snap this picture.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) WHERE YOU POINT YOUR CAMERA DOWN OR GRAB A SHOT FROM A MUCH LOWER VIEW THAN YOU USUALLY SEE.

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: Signs

Kamas theater sign

Our world is filled with signs. Some are big and brassy; some are small and easily overlooked. There are also non-advertising signs, like the signs we get from another person’s body language or an amazingly well-timed note from a friend. This sign hangs over the entry to the only movie theater in a small mountain town. It’s an amazing piece of Americana that still looks super at night when it’s lit.
