Life has thrown a few curves at my family, so when I saw this week’s photo challenge by Sara Rosso was curves that was my first thought. My next thought was how in the world would I portray that in photos when I no longer blog about the details of our life. Luckily I have a few photos that I think help tell our story.
Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks us to share a photo of a fleeting moment for this week’s challenge. It can be a quiet, precious moment like a hummingbird in the backyard or it can be something else like a glimpse into a rare occasion.
I have a few things that could work, so here is my gallery of unrelated fleeting moments. I hope you enjoy them. Do you have fleeting moments to share? I am looking forward to seeing yours.
Then just for fun:
Here is a picture story of a missed fleeting moment inspired by Danielle’s post to introduce the philosophy of Photography 101.
Yes, I am a seventies child and now I can’t get that tune out of my head. That is why I am sharing a photo that depicts everywhere a sign and that also depicts the favorite place to buy malasadas if you live on Oahu.
I wrote about Leonard’s previously. The owner is also a sweet man who came out of retirement to personally bake a dobash cake for my birthday last year, thus destroying my diet, but bringing a smile to my face. I am grateful to him.
This week’s photo challenge is brought to us by Sara Rosso. We are to share a picture of a sign and explain why we chose that picture. Click on the link to find other posts and/ or to learn more.
This week the WordPress.com photo challenge is brought to us by Michael Pick. He asked us to take a picture of ourselves or of someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or the foreground, the center of attention.
This one was not as easy for me to capture as I anticipated. Remember I am a total amateur photographer. I never even tried to take creative shots until this past year and I still use the auto settings on most shots.
I decided to take a photo of a recent addition to my computer screen with me in the background creating a shot similar to Michael’s. My first attempts did not show me at all because I was using the blank screen which was black. The flash came on in most of the auto settings too and this resulted in a rainbow bunny ear type of image from a light I turned on to try to prevent this. Then, I resorted to using the flash disabled setting normally used for dark scenes, but even then I found I needed some light to reflect my image onto the screen.
Finally, I opened a curtain and centered the image from one of my first attempts onto the screen, so there was more light to reflect my image allowing me to capture this image.
