Day 28: Flower

Actually kinda hard to find a pretty flower in the middle of winter.  My first stop was at a local park.  Plan B was a florist and Plan C was to simply take a picture of a fake flower.  Oddly enough the least likely place to have a flower this time of year was exactly the place where I got my best shot. 

Day 27: From a Distance

I'm not sure how other photographers feel but I always find it a challenge in finding new location for a shoot.  You have your old stand-bys (some of which I really do love) but to keep things fresh and exciting for you and those that view your work I think a change of scenery can make a world of difference.  The hard part about finding a new location is getting out there.  Sometimes the best views are those at which you more than likely shouldn't be.  Not that it actually says "off limits"... it may just cause you to get some strange stares.  But if you can ignore the stares then your free to get the shot you're after. 

So that's how I got my shot below.

Day 26: Up close

Here's my up close photo.  I saw this outside and thought it looked rather interesting.  I knew what it was but honestly I thought it looked like it could be a lot of things.  Wanna take a guess as to what it is?

Day 25: Something Pink

Here's my little girl with her something pink.

Day 24: Animal

So I've already taken enough pictures of my cat and unfortunately he is the only animal we have the house (besides two little monkeys:).  I actually did walk outside to look for insects or something, but too cold.  Since the theme didn't state that it had to be a real animal I went for option B- a toy animal.  My only question now is ...a dragon is considered an animal, right?

Day 23: Sun flare

A few days behind again....  but here we go.  My sun flare photo.  When I look at this photo it reminds me of the Lord of the Rings movie ...Frodo Baggins, Gandalf, Middle Earth...

Day 22: Hands

Oddly enough this theme has been an idea that I was considering for a conceptual photo series.  So I guess this means that I can now check both items off my to do list. 

I love the expression of emotions in photographs ...which (as a side point) why I love photographs of and photographing people.  To that accord, our hands can be used as an expressive extension to a variety of powerful emotions.  As I thought through a few emotions I played around with how my hands would convey that message.  It was amazing how a slight tweak completely changed the hand's expressions.  I've included the emotion I saw in the hands but I wouldn't be surprised if you saw something a little different.  I'd love to hear about what you see!
