Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Whenever I think of renewal my first thought is of flowers – especially forsythia. And of snow in the spring.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

Once again I am running a little behind on the Weekly Photo Challenge. Well, that’s par for the course for me 🙂 I present to you: Circles and Squares!

I’ve been meaning to do a set with this fan for a while now. I’m pretty happy that I did.

Mostly circles… 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge – Silhouette

In this week’s Photo Challenge we have been asked to share a silhouette – So I dug around a little and found a few of my favorites.

Casey Rhoten SilhouetteMy favorite dirt bike silhouette.

Blue Sky 2Not quite a true silhouette, but I still like it.

Eric 'Spike' Rhoten Over HeadAnother good almost-silhouette

A Vic Payne statue being assembled for display in my town. [He has made sculptures for places such as Cabela’s and has his work in several museums, as well]

Summer Culvert My daughter playing in a large culvert at a local recreation area.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

I’m a bit late with the weekly challenge again.. but that’s how my world works haha
When I’m out taking pictures I often find myself fixating on solitary things – objects, buildings, animals, flowers – I like the look of things that stand alone. Here are a few of my favorites.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

There is so much in my life that is an ‘everyday’ occurrence. Sometimes I forget about the little things that happen all the time that make life so special. Then I get a picture like this:

Ivy in pink hood
Miss Ivy was having a blast the other morning, running around with the hood of Sissy’s sweater on her head. It’s really soft and she loves to carry it around.

And then I got this picture:

Summer Culvert

Summer, Ivy and I were at one of the local dirt bike areas and we found this giant culvert to run around and play in (since there’s no water to go through it right now). Summer had a wonderful time running back and forth, listening to it echo as she did.

There’s something wonderful about this ordinary, everyday life.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

Okay, so I’ve been lax about doing the weekly challenges lately, but I have an excuse! I’m lazy 🙂 haha Here’s one of the shots from my most recent motorcycle trip. I think it fits the bill quite nicely.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

This week’s photo challenge is all about movement. How you see it, how you portray it, how you capture it.
One of my absolute favorite things to capture is movement. It’s challenging to show it without too much blur, and always a thrill when you get that amazing shot that shows it perfectly.
I like to let the movement in my pictures speak for itself. Flying dirt, a trail of dust, a blurred foreground.
Here are a few of my favorite ‘movement’ shots that I’ve captured so far

Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

Over the years I have created a few things – clothing, food, gardens – but none of them even slightly compare to the two best creations of my life. My girls.

I also created a monster by giving the little one bananas! Haha

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

Okay, I’m late for this one, but I just got my new camera this weekend and I’m amazed at how ‘close’ I can get to things now. These are a couple of my favorite ‘close’ pictures so far.
