Weekly Photo Challenge – Motion

I’ve been practicing a lot lately with sports photography.  My choice of lens is limited, but I did manage to get this shot of my niece at her riding competition with my 50 mm.

I’m so proud! (of her for placing in the competition and myself for getting this shot!)


Weekly Photo Challenge – Early Bird

Last Sunday, I headed to Washington D.C. at 5 a.m. to make images of the long-awaited Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin.  I chose to shoot at sunrise when the morning light would cast the pink and white flowers in hues of pinks, purples and gold.  At 630 a.m., I had tripod set-up and was shooting the flowers and monuments cast in the gorgeous morning light. These are two of the images I made from that day.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Scale

What I love most about the weekly photo challenge is sorting through all my travel photos trying to find the perfect image to share with you.  I find myself smiling as I go through them.  It brings up such happy memories of times when I saw amazing landscapes, historical sites, and most importantly, shared these moments with my family and friends.

This image was sitting patiently on my computer waiting to be revealed.  I had forgotten about our trip to San Clemente this summer.  On this day, Sam and I were meeting one of my very dearest friends, Lori, and her boyfriend for dinner at Fisherman’s Restaurant atop the pier at San Clemente Beach in Southern California.  As we approached the pier, I saw this woman “scaling” the San Clemente Pier to fit on her small canvas.
