A Photo a Week Challeng: Shaeds of Pink

July in Utah means one thing: fireworks. We have two big celebrations this month: Independence Day and Utah Founders Day. Our city celebrates its founding at the end of June, which also includes two days of carnival activities including massive fireworks displays each night. The Taylorsville Dayzz fireworks displays are timed to music and well coordinated. I was especially happy with this combination of different shades of pink they were able to put together. The color technology used in fireworks gets more and more impressive every year.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO FEATURING SHADES OF THE COLOR PINK.

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.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Flower

Yesterday was the first day of summer, and we’ve been enjoying spring so much. This spring has been especially amazing for our roses. We have several bushes, and they have all produced amazing blossoms. My favorite is our yellow rose bush. We almost lost it a few years ago during a very harsh winter, but I’m happy to report that it has roar back wonderfully.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Three of a Kind

Last week I asked you to obey the rule of threes. This week, I want you to take three photos of the same subject, but from different angles or distances or whatever. This will give you the chance to look at your subject in a lot of different ways. This is the only rule, so have fun.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE THREE DIFFERENT PHOTOS OF THE SAME SUBJECT.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Pink

pink_nmp

I am not a girly girl. Pink has never been my favorite color. I have very little pink in my wardrobe, and it is never my first choice of color for anything. That being said, I love pink in nature: pink flowers, pink cheeks, pink-hued sunrises and sunsets. I feel that our world would be a less expressive place without this vivid, vibrant color.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) FEATURING THE COLOR PINK.

Sorry about the late night posting for this challenge. It’s been a couple of crazy, stressful weeks. But that’s for another time. This week’s challenge is delicate. These beautiful blossoms drew me, and I’ve used other images from this same shoot for other challenges. I love the delicate look of the petals and the delicate pink coloring.
