52 Week Photo Challenge – Week 7 – Red

img_1024

I definitely had something else in mind when I thought of Red for this week. It coincided with Valentine’s Day, so one would think. Nada. I’ve been crazy running around, my daughter hasn’t been feeling well, I just wasn’t feeling it.  But this works!

Lots of RED stuff at the market!  Tomatoes, and I don’t even like them. HAHA.  But they look good in a photo!  WHO KNEW? I took this with my iPhone 6+, I don’t always have my DSLR with me. I brought it into Lightroom, threw a matte preset on it, and called it a day.

Hoping to get out and get some hiking in this weekend. It’s been unseasonably warm for Minnesota, and we are supposed to get nailed with a snow storm on Friday. With my birthday weekend coming up, I am not surprised. Many a birthday party has been cancelled over the UM…50???? years since I’ve been around. Yikes, 50. The sound of it just… well…makes me shiver. But hey, can’t do anything about it so I might as well embrace it. Onward and upward I say!

Hope everyone has a great week. Next up for Week 8 on the challenge, Depth of Field. My favorite!! Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

52 Week Photo Challenge – Week 6 – Lazy Days

lazy-days-chloe

I am so behind on posting, sorry folks!  I still have to post my Red photo!  Working on that one today, so fun!

At any rate, here is my Week 6 Lazy Days photo. My beautiful, crabby, temperamental blue calico cat, Chloe.  We rescued her almost 6 years ago and I must say it has been anything but dull with this one.  She is very much a lazy kitty! Such a grouch, yet full of personality!  She keeps us on our toes, that is for sure!  So hard to lock down for a pic as well! I took this with my Canon 70D, and did some editing in Lightroom and added a B & W matte preset from Pretty Presets, my go-to preset website!

Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully you are not as far behind as me and are working on this week’s category, Depth of Field. So looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!

52 Week Photo Challenge – Week 5 – Wide Angle

What a crazy week it was, stopping by to post my challenge photo. Grabbed this one morning almost a week ago now. We had some light flurries and the sun was peaking in the trees in just the right way. I used my iPhone for this one on the way to work. Sometimes it feels like that’s when I do my best – to and from work!
