Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes or Actually Mine 7

This week Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks us to share a picture through our eyes observing the scene first and looking for natural lines and frames by trying the skill Ming Thein talks about in this week’s Photography 101 post.

I’m not under any illusion that I have that skill, but I do appreciate the tips offered by Ming to help us improve our photography, so here are my attempts.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves or in Our Case Curves of Life 1

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.

When life throws you a curve you have to go with it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting 17

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says or “Sign Sign Everywhere a Sign” 7

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.

Everyone's favorite Malasadas and I love the sign that I cut off about please don't park at 909 Kapahulu since this was exactly where I was when I took the picture. Don't worry, I did not leave my car and I wasn't there long.

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.
