As always the blog challenge is issued by one of my wonderful internet friends at Scrapshare, the awesome scrapbooking website I frequent.
This week's challenge is issued by Cowtown Stacy.
This week, get out your cameras and open your eyes!
Share with us a photo for each of the following categories, and tell us about the photo, and/or the story behind it.
1. a sign of spring
2. an image of joy
3. a bad habit
4. a good word
5. a reflection of you
Get as creative or as simple as you want.
Be philosophical, or be silly.
The only rule is to open your eyes, and have fun!
I have been seeing signs of spring showing up regularly for the last few weeks. On a really pretty day in early March the sun was shining and I took the opportunity to play with my camera. This camera is a 7.2 megapixel point and shoot with a 5x zoom by Nikon. I like it well enough but have had a hard time figuring out the settings that I really like. This camera does not handle movement well at all, either that or I suck as a photographer. Anyhow, I had seen my daffodils popping open the day before so with the sun out, it seemed a good day to get out of the house, enjoy the sunshine and snap some shots all at the same time.
Here are a couple of the resulting images.
I will have to do some searching of the photo files to see if I can find some photos that meet the needs of the other categories. For now, enjoy the signs of early spring in the Pacific Northwest.
