I have had quite the weird week here. Monday was crazy busy. Tuesday I started out fine, playing catch-up with Photography 101 but I wasn’t that far behind. Then Tuesday afternoon I went out to do some shooting and got very sick. By Tuesday night I was doubled up on the couch praying for help, a divine intervention. While in recovery from the stomach flu I decided to mess around on Facebook. Soon I was in contact with family members I thought I’d lost forever. It had been almost 20 years. I was feeling fine by Wednesday night, however as much as I love photography, WordPress and blogging, as much as I wanted to honor my commitment to the 101 course, I was captivated by my reunion. This is why I’ve been gone, but I’m back, and I have some photos to share.
The challenge for Tuesday was Architecture…that will have to wait till this weekend when I can travel a bit. All we have out here on the plains are flat roofed buildings that resemble government institutions and some mobile homes, not very structurally intriguing.
Wednesday’s challenge was Movement.
Such a face eh? Gotta love her though, she’s just like me.
My next challenge is from yesterday, Swarm. I have two of these shots, one for the squeamish and one for the strong.
For the squeamish…the safe one first.
And for the strong…or fans of entomology (does that include these guys?)
Today’s challenge is Landscape. That’s my favorite style of photography besides macro. Every storm season I listen to the weather radio and watch the skies, waiting for the perfect time to go. I ride the edge of the supercells, my heart racing, adrenaline pumping, cheering for violence in the skies to choke the earth with its destructive hail and winds. It’s the only kind of violence I tolerate in my life. I thrive on it. It makes me feel alive.
Ok, so there are my entries for Photo101 for this week. Next week I will really try to stay on top of the challenges and daily postings. Have a great weekend, wherever you are.
