A Photo a Week Challenge: Pink

pink_nmp

I am not a girly girl. Pink has never been my favorite color. I have very little pink in my wardrobe, and it is never my first choice of color for anything. That being said, I love pink in nature: pink flowers, pink cheeks, pink-hued sunrises and sunsets. I feel that our world would be a less expressive place without this vivid, vibrant color.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) FEATURING THE COLOR PINK.

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: Contrasting Colors

contrasting_colors_nmp

Contrasting colors are colors that are on approximately opposite sides of the color wheel. Yellow and purple, green and red, blue and orange, and a myriad of variations in-between each of those. Contrasting colors compliment each other and give interest and variety to images. Many visual art classes use exercises in contrasting colors.

My image was taken along the Rhine River in Germany. I love the contrast of the pinks and oranges of the building against the blues of the sky and river and the greens of the plants. I don’t know what this building is (we didn’t stop to explore it), so if you know what it is, please let me know!

This week’s challenge is fairly wide open as far as subject goes, just try to use the color wheel as a guide.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Through Glass

through_glass_nmp

I seem to fancy photos involving glass this time each year. Last week, my mother, sister, and I bottled what we call chow chow (also known as mustard pickles). I don’t know how it got the name chow chow, but that’s what my grandmother called it. I love the tangy taste of the mustard sauce on all of the other ingredients, which include cucumbers, pearl onions, and cauliflower. When I was a kid, I wondered why my mom and grandmother only used pints for bottling them. I don’t wonder anymore. Cutting up the veggies and pealing those tiny onions for 23 pints was enough to make my look crosseyed and vow to not do this again for another two years, but they sure look pretty through the glass of the jars.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF ITEMS VIEWED THROUGH GLASS OF ANY KIND.

Sorry about the late night posting for this challenge. It’s been a couple of crazy, stressful weeks. But that’s for another time. This week’s challenge is delicate.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Gold

Last fall, I had the privilege of taking senior photos for my nephew. My sister’s yard is an amazing place to do photo sessions, and she’s been so gracious to let me use it whenever possible. As we were walking back to the house after a few shots outside the yard, I grabbed this photo. During editing, I fell in love with how washed in gold it was. Golden Hour becomes truly golden during the fall.
