Weekly Photo Challenge Round-Up 1

As a part of PostADay/PostAWeek the people at WordPress asked if we would be interested in a weekly photo challenge. I, along with many other bloggers, said YES!!! and they delivered. Since February 2011 they have been posting weekly topics. I decided not to participate every week, but to wait a bit and create a collection for one big post. I may be rethinking this method. See, I truly started taking pictures in Fall 08′, but since I’m quite passionate about it, I have THOUSANDS possibly tens of thousands of pictures. It was fun (reliving memories) and at times tedious (did I mention I have a lot of pictures) going through them trying to find ones to fit the themes.

An extra challenge I assigned myself was not to include any pictures from my semester in Europe or any pictures already in My Portfolio. It was tempting though, since those are the images I’m most familiar with.  Anyway, here’s what I came up with. Some pictures actually work for multiple themes.

    Wow, you have some great shots here. I especially like the line and one shots. I’ve thought about doing a similar post since I missed the first several challenges, but hadn’t managed to make time to do it yet.

    • Thank you! There’s definitely an advantage to posting the pictures weekly. It took me so long to find everything. Maybe I’ll follow your lead and post several images for one topic. Love your images for tiny, especially the yellow flower and the hummingbird!

  3. Great pics Shavanna !!
    BTW…to all of you out there…Chicago does look that colorless 6 months of the year 😛
