Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorites…

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow…

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows…

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.
