A Photo a Week Challenge: Neglected

neglected1_nmp

My husband has some of the most fun job sites. One of our best clients (and a good friend of my husband) is building a small, forest get-away in the Uinta Mountains. He had some questions for his structural engineer, so of course we had to go for a visit. Along with taking pictures of the construction site, I had time to sit and take some more artistic shots, like this one of an old can of, wow, I’m not even sure what is in that can. The bristles of the brush were completely hardened, and you can no longer read the label.

For the curious, here are pictures of the cabin construction site and a view from the top of the mountain that is part of the property.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Edible

edible_nmp

Anyone who knows me well knows my love of fresh fruit, especially berries. Actually, I’m a great lover of food. I think there’s a good chance that without food, I would die. Literally. Food has been the subject of art for centuries. Young art students and grand masters alike have painted and sketched thousands of still lifes of bowls upon bowls of fruit. Photographers are no different. We carefully place each tasty item, make sure the lighting is decent, and snap away. Food is life, in healthy bodies and in art.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A SERIES OF PHOTOS THAT FEATURE FOOD.

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

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: Glass

I love glass bottles. I love how they feel in my hands. I love how they photograph. Glass provides so many interesting opportunities for images. This week, just go hog wild with your creativity using glass! (P.S. The Mountain Town Olive Oil Co. has amazing oils and balsamic vinegars. We love their products.)

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS FEATURING GLASS.

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

This is the engine of the boat we took from Lausanne to Chillon Castle on Lake Leman (aka Lake Geneva).

A Photo a Week Challenge: Open

open_nmp

Usually, when a photo challenge has a topic of open, it means to post anything you want. However, this challenge is literally open: open cases, open doors, open cans, open anything. Last year, my husband and I had the opportunity to sing with the Utah Symphony Chorus. The night of one performance, I brought my camera to take some fun pictures around the Green Room (where performers wait to go on stage). This one of an open violin case is a particular favorite of mine.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) OF OPEN THINGS.

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.
