Would you be so kind as to "like" my facebook page?

Please excuse the lack of photos in some of my older posts as I am trying to slowly go back through and add the photos that were accidentally deleted

August Photo Hunt Challenge

Wow, some days I feel like my blog has taken a turn - I feel like I have been posting about photography alot lately more than food. I am just happy to have found a cyber world filled with people who love two of my favorite things: food and photography! I promise more food posts to come, but I am also loving participating in these photo challenges. One in particular was the August Photo Hunt Challenge. The challenge gives you a month to photograph a list of 20 items. I didn't find out about it until the last week or so of August! So I am certain my photos won't be as creative or clever as others'. I promise that my next months' photos will be more thought-out since I will have more time. So cut me some slack this month! And on many you will see more than one pic, and that's because I couldn't choose!

1. A flag that represents you (your town, state, country, team, etc.)



2. Something comfortable

3. Something in season
 













4. Feet
Our feet in the sand on the beach


5. Repetition
Repetitive bricks on the ground, graced by a rainbow
Colorful bricks on a wall
Repetitive tombstones in a cemetery








































6. Culture or ethnicity
Not very creative, but Ethnic food menus at our hotel. 
I wish I had taken pics of an Indian wedding that was taking place, it was beautiful!


















7. Contrast
The contrast of the colors of our skin














8. An indulgence
Gigantic piece of chocolate cake!
My favorite beer - Bud Light Lime. I thought the glow looked cool
































9. A macro or closeup
Rocks from my candle display on my coffee table
















10. Something masculine
A gift for my fiancee - I thought this depicted "masculinity" in a humorous way!















11. Something feminine
Victoria's Secret and zebra print - need I say more?!
















12. Light
This feels like the light from heaven, the light of God




















13. Eco-friendly
















14. Business
We saw this truck while driving back from Chicago 
and it has my fiancee's name, and is a business (on wheels)
















Hilton Garden Inn




















15. An arrow
I probably shouldn't be going here...
My hometown
















Choose Heaven, Not Hell














One way ticket to heaven or hell, which one will you choose?
















16. Something wet


17. Something dry
Dried berries on the sidewalk
















18. Butterflies *


19. Heart-Shaped Clouds*
Aunt Granny's up there
















 
20. Strength 
Strength in human form - my Aunt Granny.

Great photos! I love your first shot for repetition! The colors on those bricks are just gorgeous! Your shot for light is beautiful and your cake photo for indulgence just caused me to have a chocolate craving!

Krista said...

How cool! You've got some great shots here. Butterflies are SO hard to photograph. Definitely takes patience. Good work!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! All of your pictures were also great! This is such a fun challenge, can't wait to participate in October! I was feeling like my shots wouldn't be nearly as good as everyone elses' since I have no experience, and also just a basic Nikon coolpix camera... but you guys make me feel better about my shots. So thanks!

That is awesome that we share the same name! I rarely find anyone with my (er, our) name. I think I've known only 3 in my lifetime.
