Photo a Day Challenge (Days 5-11)
It was another full week of pictures – and I am glad that I got to use some skills that I don’t often get to practice with my camera.
Day Five: The #15
I really wasn’t feeling anything with the actual number 15 in it, so as I was preparing my classroom for the new semester, I thought it would be fun to do a low aperture photo and include 15 items in the picture. My only regret with this photo is that I didn’t have one more gray, black or purple marker…so there is the one “pink” marker in the photo.
Day Six: Makes You Smile
Even though he sometimes drives me a little crazy…Hank does make me smile most of the time. He’s been VERY into playing with his Christmas presents lately – and he wanted me to throw his Rudolph when I was taking this picture.
Day Seven: Street
I really enjoy shooting long exposure pictures. You are able to capture many images that you can’t normally see. When I saw today’s prompt was “street” I knew I wanted to take a long exposure picture to get some light trails in the photo. My only regret is not being in a big enough city because it could have made more of an impact.
Day Eight: Your Sky
I LOVE sunset in the Flint Hills. I was hoping for a good one tonight, and it didn’t disappoint! I decided to shoot out in the country and found a cool clump of trees and used that as a point of interest in the photo.
Day Nine: Daily Routine
Each day starts the same. (It used to start more often than not with Starbucks, but that gets too expensive). I usually bring my own coffee or have some Tazo Joy tea (seriously, it’s the best) and start the day by checking email and finalizing plans for the day.
Day Ten: One o’clock
There was no way I was getting up at 1 a.m., so I decided to take a picture of what I was doing at 1 p.m. – I got to spend the day with two of my good friends, starting with lunch at Radius Brewing Company and followed by shopping Emporia. What a great way to spend a Saturday (without having to think about school stuff!!)
Day Eleven: Water
I LOVE water droplet pictures, so I decided to try one out – while it was a little difficult to take without an assistant to control the droplets a little better, I was still able to achieve what I wanted in today’s picture.
Here’s to another week in the books! I can’t wait to start next week’s photos!
