52 Week Photo Challenge – Week 10 – Books

Books Logo Small size

Will I ever be on time with my posts? Let’s take bets. UM……..probably not!  this was a fun little photo.  The week got away from me as usual. By day, I have two PT jobs. One is at a school. I love our little school library, and thought this was a great perspective for my category BOOKS. I grabbed this with my iPhone 6S+ and added a Pretty Preset to the editing in Lightroom.

Gotta run, but super excited to see everyone’s GREEN photos this week.  Have a great St. Patty’s day if you celebrate!

 

TTFN,

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 4 – Self Portrait

Ha! This one cracks me up!  I am not a fan of “the selfie”. Normally, I don’t like photos of myself. I know I am not alone, so this one was a bit difficult.  Having a teenager, however, has made it easier for me to “get with the times”.

This is a photo I took using one of the Snapchat filters on my iPhone.  Then I used my Snapseed app to play around and edit.

Still not a fan of the selfie!

Next up – Week 5 and Wide Angle Lens

52 Week Challenge – Week 2 – WINTER

I have to say this was a good week to have WINTER as the category in the 52 week challenge. In Minnesota, we had plenty of different weather (as usual) this week! I took a few photos of what winter means around here!

Or as I fondly say, Winter From My Neck of the Woods!  I am a day late and a dollar short as usual on getting this one out!

Earlier in the week, we were blessed with three days in a row of the white stuff. It made for difficult driving commutes. I am really lucky in that I leave later than most, and come home earlier. I am not stuck in traffic most days, lucky me!

HA my car buried at the end of my shift. Looks the same on the other side.

After the snow cleared so did the sky, there was a sunset, off my deck.

If I were to pick my favorite of the week, it would be this one. A male Northern Cardinal Wednesday morning before work. Again, off my deck.

Yes, I know it’s corn.

Again on Wednesday, it cleared up when I left work.

Then it got COLD. C – O – L – D. COLD. Thursday morning it was -9 below, with a -26 below windchill. Loved this one I grabbed on the Mississippi.

This is what happens when the air temp is colder than the water temp.

Friday night at the local ice skating rink, it was still pretty chilly. I am going to do another blog post about “the Pit”.

In Minnesota, winter to many of us means winter dance team competitions. My daughter doesn’t dance anymore, but we took in some dance team action on Saturday.

If I had to pick my favorite of the week, it would definitely be the Northern Cardinal. HA, not a surprise.

Next week’s category is “Drink”. Should be interesting and fun!  Here is another glimpse of the categories!
