2017 PhotoChallenge.org Week 42: Wheel of Photography

week42_street_orange

I recently joined a new (to me) photo challenge at PhotoChallenge.org. For this challenge, you are supposed to take a new photo for the challenge and not dip into your archive. For this week, we got to spin the double wheel of photography. I got Street Photography and the Color Orange. I know that this is not what is meant by Street Photography, but I’m not sure I’ll make it downtown this week, so this is as close as I might get. This is a street close to my home. (It’s almost urban, so it should count, right?)

A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs of Fall

signs_of_fall_nmp

In the northern hemisphere, tomorrow (September 22) is the first day of fall. The weather is turning cool, the kids are back in school, and the foliage is putting on a brilliant color show. Fall is my favorite time of year. It has my favorite holidays (Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the build up to Christmas). I love pulling out sweaters and drinking hot chocolate. I even look forward to the first real snow fall (though I’m completely sick of the white stuff by January 4). Welcome, fall! Please hang out with us for a while.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF THINGS THAT MEAN FALL TO YOU.

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

A Photo a Week Challenge: Mountain

The world has amazing natural features. Valleys, oceans, rivers and lakes, and mountains cover out planet. This week, we are focusing on mountains. Whether you live near towering peaks, rolling hills, or a landscape as flat as a pancake, chances are you have visited and photographed a mountain. Sometimes up-close and personal, and sometimes from a distance, like this shot of Diamond Head on Oahu, Hawaii. I can’t remember the name of the lookout where I shot this image, but it gave us the most amazing view of Honolulu and the volcanic mountain peak that dominates it’s southeastern shore.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING MOUNTAINS, HILLS, AND PEAKS OF ANY KIND.

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

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

If you look close (or maybe not so closely) at the top of the very dense forest, you can see the tower of the Ehrenberg Castle ruin. Below is a picture of the full castle, so you can tell just how dense the forest is when looking at it from the foot of the hill where it dwells.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

A Photo a Week Challenge: White

For the northern hemisphere, this time of year usually bring the flurry, white stuff flowing (or sometimes pelting) from the heavens. Here in Utah, we love to see the mountains snow-capped and looking festive for the holidays. They also mean live-giving water for the coming spring and summer months.

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