A Photo a Week: Fight! Fight! Fight!

Beatrice and Benedict from MAANSeveral years ago (more than I really want to admit), I was asked by some friends to take production stills for a local community theatre’s production of Much Ado About Nothing. I played the piano for the incidental music (this play could almost be consider a musical, Shakespeare put so many songs in it), and I had just purchased my very first DSLR camera. I love how the pictures turned out, and this week’s challenge entry is one of my favorites from the shoot. Beatrice and Benedict cannot woo sensibly nor easily, and you are never really sure at the end of the play if she will kiss him or punch his lights out, but it sure is fun to watch.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF CONFLICT OR FIGHTING, WHETHER COMIC OR SERIOUS.

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. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

This is a picture of my friend’s wife and kids watching a frisbee game. His youngest turned around just as I took the picture, and it really added to the photo.
