Weekly Photo Challenge: Narrow

I never thought I’d have a use for this photo, other thank looking at it for fun. But it seems to fit perfectly with the prompt; narrow. This is a pretty narrow fire on the beach. It was taken in the Bahamas a few years ago.

One Word Photo Challenge: Child

I’d like to start by saying that I am 21 years old. I have never given birth, though many women my age have. But I do have a child. I adopted one. Four, actually. And they are all my children.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry On Top

I don’t have much to say about this week’s photo. This little girl is the icing on my cake. She’s my cherry on top. And unsurprisingly, she’s climbed into my lap as I’ve typed these few sentences.

One Word Photo Challenge: Chameleon

When we think of Chameleons, obviously, we all think of the lizard who can change color to blend in with their environment. Not surprisingly, the only other definition refers to people who change their opinions to suit those around them.

So, for this challenge, which I haven’t participated in for a while, I have this photo of a tiny fluff ball blending in to it’s environment.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Details

In this photo you can see all of the details in this little guy’s eyes. You can see all of the hairs on his (or her) body, and some of the hairs on the legs. You can also see the detailed pattern on it’s wings.

It’s not often we get close to a critter like this. A picture is always helpful to exploring the details.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look up

My first instinct was to take my camera outside and look up at the sky until I found something to take a picture of. The only problem with that is that it’s about 10,000 degrees Kelvin outside, and I don’t want to put my body or my camera through that.

So I settled in, with the air conditioning blasting, to look for an older picture that fit this prompt. I actually found one rather quickly. It’s one I’ve been holding on to for a while, waiting to use. It’s not a particularly spectacular picture, I just think it’s interesting.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opposites

Another Photo Challenge!

Since I don’t have as much time today–due to typical American celebrations of independence including, but not limited to grilled foods, alcohol, and explosives– I’m just going to go ahead and post my photo challenge.

I wasn’t sure what I would to do for this one. I was thinking about trying to capture some natural occurrence of opposites, but I thought a lot of people may do that. I decided to go for a more simple idea; black and white.

Discover Challenge: Opening Line

“It was the first time, and it wouldn’t be the last.”

If you have followed my blog, specifically my photography, you know that I take a lot of picture of the moon. They may all look the same to most people, but I see the small differences. While the moon is tidally locked with the Earth, meaning that it rotates at just the right rate that we always see the same side of it, you can see some slight differences in orientation from month to month. That’s what I saw when I did the Full Moon Challenge in 2013.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Partners

For this prompt, I had many photos in mind. I made a short list of the photos in my archives that I would consider using for this challenge, but I erased the whole thing when I came across this one. It was just too cute not to share.
