threes_nmp

The eye loves asymmetry. Unequal sides and odd numbers have been artistic standards for centuries. For this little family, three is the perfect number.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING THREE SUBJECTS OR ITEMS.

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.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow

The yellow hibiscus is Hawaii’s state flower. It is native to the islands and grows wild as well as cultivated. We saw these beautifully-kept hibiscus at the LDS Laie Hawaii Temple. Yellow is a bright, cheerful color that always makes me smile. It was my father’s favorite color, and I think of him whenever I see it. Yesterday would have been his 86 birthday, so Happy Birthday, Papa. I miss you.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING THE COLOR YELLOW.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

Flowers from Dad's casket

For this week’s challenge, I’m reusing a photo from my father’s funeral. Not only are the flowers fleeting, but it also reminds me to make the most of every day with those I love. Our time here is measured, and we know not the hour of our passing.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Flying

flying_nmp

I love flying. I love traveling and visit new places, and the fastest and easiest way to get somewhere far away is flying. I’ve flown around the world (almost literally). I’ve been to Korea and Europe, the South Pacific and Great Britain. I’ve flown across the United States multiple times. However, I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed flying as much as my sweet little subject for this great family photo shoot. She loves lying on her stomach and flinging out her arms and legs. Her mom and grandmother were standing behind me, encouraging her. And I got to experience joy front and center.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) THAT FEATURE FLYING OR FLIGHT.

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

A Photo a Week Challenge: Black & White

pw_bw_nmp

Looking back through past challenges, I found that I have never done a dedicated black and white challenge. It really surprised me. I love editing in black and white. When I was still shooting with film, I loved using black and white dedicated film, especially for slides. There’s something amazing about black and white images. They are instantly nostalgic and artistic.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE).
