Have you ever tilted your camera on accident and then thought “Wow, that works!” If you have some time to work with your subject (or subjects), try some shots with your camera tiled from slightly to wildly and see what happens. It can add a unique twist to a commonplace image.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE PHOTOS THAT ARE AT A UNIQUE ANGLE.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- 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.
- 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.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
For this week’s challenge, I found two pictures: one from nature, one man-made. The first one is from a trip to Escalante, Utah a few years ago. This majestic view can ben found while driving along the Burr Trail.
The second is of the front of the LDS Salt Lake Temple taken this past fall.

If you’ve been to Salt Lake City, then you know that one of the most popular tourist attractions is the majestic LDS (aka Mormon) Temple in the heart of the city. This building took the Mormon settlers 40 years to build, including the need to repour the foundation because they buried it when they thought a division of the U.S. Army was coming to attack them and then they discovered a crack in it when they excavated to continue construction. The granite used to build it was quarried from a canyon on the east side of the valley. This picture was taken through the picture windows in the Visitor’s Center just south of the temple on Temple Square. I took this picture at Christmas time, when the square is decorated with thousands of lights and a life-sized nativity for the holiday.
