Punk Rock Mom Photo Challenge: Perspective

I have stumbled across yet another new photo challenge.  I like this one in particular because we have an entire week to shoot (or find) images related to the topic.  If you want more details or to join in, just click on the image below, then proceed to my entries for this week’s topic: perspective.

Unique Point of View

Reflection (my favorite)



I have to admit I was on constant blog alert today, hitting the “refresh” button on my stats page repeatedly today as I watched my hit counter slowly creep toward 1,000 hits in a month.  A couple days ago, I was around 850 views and thought there was no way I’d make it.  But, sure enough, just before 3:00 p.m., I crossed the 1,000 threshold!

If I knew who it was that was my 1,000th viewer, I would have offered a prize or something, but I’ll just have to settle for saying thanks to everyone who has been reading my blog over the past couple months.  I have quadrupled my hits in just 3 months!  I hope you all continue reading…I’ll keep posting!

And speaking of posts.  You are reading post #100!  What a momentous day!

In a Yellow House Photo Challenge: Work & Play

Technically, this doesn’t qualify for submission since I didn’t take the photo, so I know I won’t win, but I thought it fit well with the category and I don’t really have anything else to post for this theme.

This photo is me with three of my co-workers (my boss and the two who work in Children’s Ministry) during Vacation Bible School earlier this month.  I think it fits this category so well because I felt like a lot of the work we were doing to prep for and during VBS was a lot of play – crafts, games, skits, songs with the kids.  It was a week full of a lot of work, but also a lot of play (I’d post more photos here, but I can’t post pictures of the kiddos, so there aren’t many other photos to choose from!).

Simplicity Photo Challenge: Love

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted for a Simplicity Photo Challenge, but I’ve had these photos on my desktop just waiting to be used for about a month now, and they fit this week’s theme of “Love” perfectly!

I actually took them about 3 years ago when I was taking a photo class at a local community college, just to brush up on my skills and knowledge before I started teaching photography at the high school level.  I was excited that Greg (my brother) and Theresa were willing to be my subjects for this assignment.  These are a few of my favorite shots.

And lastly, my entry for this week:

Fore more “Love” shots, head on over to:

August 30

Today’s photo is one I shot for a photo challenge.  The theme was perspective.  I caught this reflection as I was leaving work today.  I love the colors of the late evening sun and how the water distorts the building.
