Thursday Doors – March 30, 2017

It is tradition for couples who marry in the LDS Salt Lake Temple to take pictures at the large, ornate doors outside the temple after the ceremony. Part of that tradition is taking a picture of the couples’ hands together on one of the doorknobs.

A Photo a Week Challenge: From the Back

from_the_back_nmp

Stories happen from all angles. Facial expression convey so much. However, this week I want you to find photos that tell stories showing only the back of your subject or subjects. For this photo, the bride asked if we could get some pictures of them on the bench, but from behind. It was a great suggestion. I love the gentleness that comes through from both her and him in this image.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR MORE PHOTOS WHERE THE SUBJECT IS SHOWN FROM THE BACK.

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

Dancing with Aunt Julianne

This brave young fellow summoned up the courage to ask the bride (his aunt) for a dance. He certainly didn’t have any trouble expressing himself. I love the look of concentration on his face and the joy on hers.
