A Photo a Week Challenge: Glass

Wow, this whole social distancing and self-isolation is starting to take a toll on my ability to remember simple things, like the fact that I host a weekly photo challenge. So sorry to everyone about my absence last week. I can’t promise that it won’t happen again, but I’ll try to do better going forward.

For this week, I’ve chosen the theme of glass. One thing I’ve done a bit more of is baking. This is one of the bowls I like to put my dough in to rise. It’s the perfect size for the recipe I use, and even though the outside of the bowl is ridged, the inside is beautifully smooth. I also love how the light plays with the ridges in the reflection on the table.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT FEATURES GLASS OF ANY KIND.

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: Up In The Air

Sorry about no challenge last week. With COVID-19 raging throughout the world, things have been a bit crazy here. And then yesterday morning, Salt Lake City was hit with a magnitude 5.7 earthquake. Needless to say, this topic seemed to fit perfectly for the world situation right now.

Last week, I had the chance to visit this job site the day they were flying in the roof trusses. It was the first time I’ve had seen this, and it was a blast. The framers were amazing, climbing all over the frames to secure them once the crane lifted them up for placement. I picked this particular image because I loved how the sunbursts helped to frame it.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF THINGS THAT ARE AIRBORNE OR UP IN THE AIR IN ANY WAY.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Opposite Weather

Here in Utah, we are heading deep into winter. Cold temperatures, a lot of snow, overcast skies, and ugly inversions. While I do enjoy some snow, by the first week of January, I’m usually longing for the warmth of late spring and early summer (which is hilarious, because by the beginning of August, I’m longing for the cooler temps of fall and early winter). I took this picture in July 2019 at our family cabin on a beautiful July 4th day. *Sigh* Why do we almost always want what we don’t have at the moment? Humans are funny, funny creatures.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF THE WEATHER THAT IS OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING RIGHT NOW.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Clouds

I’m a sucker for a beautiful clouds. Fluffy clouds. Streaky clouds. Dark and foreboding or airy and almost not there. I’ve never met a cloud I couldn’t love. I also love taking photos of clouds.
