Define “favorite” in whatever way works best for you. Anything goes, as long as it’s a photo from 2017. If you want to share several images, that’s fine too — a “best of 2017” gallery could be fun if you can’t settle on one photo.
I have a hard time settling on one picture for almost all of the challenges and this one is no different so here goes… my gallery…
Martha’s Vineyard is up first… I can never take enough pictures of my favorite place on the planet. These were taken in October 2017.
Cape May, New Jersey.. April 2017
And of course one must have a favorite flower picture 🙂
But I think one of my favorite pictures is the re-creation my daughter Deb and I did of my mother and grandmother from the 1920’s, standing (and sitting) by the statue of Lincoln in front of the courthouse in Newark, New Jersey.
This week, share something that glows. Maybe you’d like to experiment with some Golden Hour photography. We’re excited to see what you share.
This is early morning on Martha’s Vineyard. The sun peeking through the trees creating a glowing splash on the grass.
The sun looks like a glowing shadow on this window covered in early morning moisture.
Prompt: Your inspiration this week is windows. Use a window to frame your shot, use a window to give structure to your photo, or make a window itself your subject.
Windows, windows, windows and more windows…
From NYC skyscraper windows, to windows inside a lighthouse, to the porthole window on a ship, to my daughter’s eyes, to the light streaming through a window in St Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC, to the reflection of the sky in the back window of my car… these are my window choices.
Kingscote, our final mansion.
George Noble Jones, a southern plantation owner constructed this Gothic Revival style summer cottage in 1839 along a farm path known as Bellevue Avenue. Designed by Richard Upjohn, the house is an early example of the picturesque Gothic Revival style, with its irregular and busy roofline. Kingscote was one of the first summer “cottages” constructed in Newport. It was owned by the King family from 1863 until 1972, when it was given to the Preservation Society of Newport County.
According to the Preservation Society of Newport County: Today, Kingscote is a rare example of a Gothic Revival house and landscape setting preserved intact with original family collections.
Hope you’ve enjoyed our mansion tours, we had a lot of fun.
