Day 15 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

On Day 15, two monarch butterflies hatched from their cocoons and were loose in the office. With my co-worker's assistance, I gently led them to the door and we watched as they flew free, from Mexico, NY to Mexico City...

Day 13 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

If you follow me elsewhere (facebook, instagram, twitter...) you might know that I am learning French through Duolingo, and they often throw strange sentences at me to translate, which often lead to me drawing something silly. Day 13 found me translating this....

Day 12 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

On Day 12 I spent my last evening working a farmers' market for the summer. Iced coffee was my special treat to myself for working them, and this little bunny celebrates my love for them. ^.^

Day 7 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

On Day 7 we returned to church after a summer away to take part in the annual Ingathering Water Ceremony in which people in the congregation bring a small bit of water from (or to symbolize) a place visited over the summer. I kind of envisioned us all as water drops, coming from all over, with all our different experiences and beliefs, flowing into and through the Unitarian Universalist community, and back out into the world spreading the principles...

Day 5 was not the best. People were pretty stressed & crabby all the way around. My solution? A rainbow glittery rock!

Hello, my fellow creative photographers!

Welcome to the FINAL week in my 52-Week Photo Challenge!

Can you believe we made it this far? I can't! Hooray!

By this time next Sunday, I'll try to have a list of all the challenges in a nice image format for you all to pin or share however...

So on to this week's challenge! It's NIGHT!

Wait for the sun to set and get creative with your camera! OR find another way to interpret the challenge!

Here's mine:
Night falls.

Since I've been using my tablet, I couldn't do some of the *really* creative ideas I had, but I love how I was able to edit this and upload it right from the Nexus! The reflection of the sky on the way was so pretty; getting the flowers in the shot was the only hard part!

So how about you? How will you interpret this challenge?

52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 51

Hello, my fellow creative photographers!

Welcome to another week in my 52-Week Photo Challenge!

Can you believe there is only one more week after this one!? I can't. I didn't think I'd make, but woo-hoo!

Anyway, on to this week's challenge! It's EIGHT

Make EIGHT the focal point of your photo or have EIGHT be the overall theme in your photo. A street sign, address numbers, or maybe a group of EIGHT items...?

Here's mine:
Eight

Nope, neither of them turned 8, but together there were 8 candles on the cake! (Benji turned 5, and Kuromi turned 3!) And there was approximately 8 seconds too much singing for Benji! XD
