We were in Hawaii in November taking photos for a friend’s wedding. His nephew asked me to take pictures of him proposing to his girlfriend after a skydiving group activity. (It was the day after the ceremony.) Although they had been talking about getting engaged for a while, she was completely surprised by the timing. I think the tightness of her hug says it all.

This week’s challenge is use the color wheel to find contrasting colors. I brought some clementines to work for breakfast this morning and realized that my blue mouse pad is the perfect contrast for their orange.

Two Challenges – One Photo

This photo is for two different challenges. The first is for the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental. The second is for the Trevor Carpenter PhotoChallenge 2017: This is Not a Pipe, which is all about surrealism.

2017 Trevor Carpenter PhotoChallenge Week 45: Clear glass with no reflection

Week45-clearglassnoreflection_nmp

A few weeks ago I posted my entry for a new photo challenge I had found. Since then, the challenge has changed names and website addresses. I haven’t missed a week of posting on Facebook, but I haven’t been posting here. I hope to make this a more permanent thing and remember to post here every week as well. So, here’s my entry for this week. The challenge was to take a picture of clear glass with no reflection. My sister gave me this cute glass candy basket.

So my set up was very, very basic. My kitchen table, the light from the window, and a plain, white tea towel to cover the box that made it high enough for better lighting. Not perfect, but very fun.
