Week 17: Exploring Night-time Light

This is our final week of exploring light at different times of day; appropriately, we conclude this segment with night-time light.   While I experimented with shooting at night this week in several different environments, ultimately my favorite night time shot was from a few weeks ago, during a short evening jaunt to a local the amusement park.

Please continue the blog circle, starting with the work of the talented Linda Hooper.




Week 16: Exploring Evening Light

This week we had houseguests and evening was a rush of mealtime, bathtime, and bedtime stories.  But I did manage to steal away for a few minutes to capture evening light in Park Slope.

Please start the blog circle to see how my talented friends have interpreted this week’s theme, starting with Jill Cassara.

Week 15:  Exploring Daylight

This week’s challenge is to photograph in the middle of the day.    Here, B. takes a mid-day break to have a smoothie and observe the crosswalk traffic light.  He’s recently learned that the red hand means stop and wait; the walking person means go.   The light is constantly changing and endlessly fascinating.

Check out how my talented photographer friends have interpreted this challenge by starting the blog circle with Cheryl Sawyer.

Week 14: Morning Light

The blog circle is kicking off the month of April with a new theme:  exploring light at times of day.  This week, we focus on morning light.  This was an ideal theme given my recent trip to Hawaii, where jet-lag had B. and me waking up at 4am on a regular basis — we saw a LOT of morning.  Including several beautiful Hawaiian sunrises… a gorgeous backdrop for playing with rocks on the beach.

Please continue around the blog circle to see the very talented Julie Mak has interpreted this theme.




Week 13: Photographer’s Choice

Since there’s an extra week in March this year, the wise ladies of the blog circle decided this fifth week should be “photographer’s choice” — in other words, a freebie!   B. and I were in Hawaii this week visiting Nana, who has a beautiful lanai on her condo. Perfect for B. to run laps.

Please continue around the blog circle to see how the others ran with their bonus week, starting with the lovely Kim Maples Dupree.
