Photography 101 – Edge

Today, show us an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice.

There’s lots of sinkholes around the property here, the one I wanted I couldn’t get to today so I chose a smaller one.  I may post the other one later this week.

Photography 101: Moment and #NaBloPoMo

Capture a fleeting moment and experiment with blur and movement.

That moment when you know it’s gone from being silly to completely over the top.

Photography 101: A Pop of Color and #NaBloPoMo

Colors can stir emotions within us, tell stories, and transform our images. Today, use one color to add life or drama to your shot.

This shot is of the ticket booth at the old drive in on Hwy 50 in Lewisburg, TN.  It’s closed for winter and looks so desolate and abandoned.  Took a shot of the sign at the entrance also but the color on this one really stands out.

Photography 101 – The Natural World and #NaBloPoMo

Capture a moment, big or small, and pay attention to the lines and curves produced by nature.

Since my pictures of the deer chose not to cooperate with me I am using a couple that were taken early in the spring.  An announcement from Mother Nature that warmer weather was on it’s way then.

One of my favorite winter photos is from the backyard where I used to live.  It was used by the company I used to work for as a Christmas greeting on our emails one year.

Photography 101 – Connect and #NaBloPoMo

In this age of social media, we hear the word connect more often, don’t we? Connect with us on Facebook! Connect with me on LinkedIn! Given what today’s technologies can do, it feels like the world is getting smaller, and we’re more connected than ever before.

There are many ways to interpret this theme: from a gadget to a handshake, from a bridge to a gathering among friends. What’s yours?

I had several different thoughts on this one, first about the Natchez Trace Bridge over Hwy 96 W in Franklin, TN – but then – what better way to say connect than a family tree.

Wildflowers and weeds – what do we see?

While out mowing today I stopped to look at the wildflowers blooming.  Yes, they are wild,  but they are beautiful.  I love my roses and other flowers but there’s just something about these growing wild, yeah they’re just weeds but look at the beautiful flowers they have.

New Challenge … Old Courthouse Photos

I have always loved old courthouses, especially in the South. This week I would like for everyone to post a picture of the courthouse in their hometown or one that they have found that they love.

Please use comments, Pingbacks, and social media to spread the word. When you leave a comment on the challenge post, provide a link back to your blog. Then others can view your entry too. Use tags such as photography, courthouse, photo challenge, Post a week, challenge.

This is not from my hometown but from Fayetteville, TN. I was there on Sunday and took these. I guess it is fitting that we pay tribute to Fayetteville and Lincoln County, they lost so much in last nights deadly storms that came through.
