Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is “thankful.” And I am very thankful this is just a goofy picture and not real life.

On a more serious note, I am thankful for my family, my friends and The Boyfriend who took this hysterical picture of me in Bermuda. I am thankful we see each other every week even though we live in different cities and thankful for our many adventures together. Finally, I am thankful I have a partner who indulges my bad taste in movies and puts up with my obsessive need to take a gazillion pictures.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

Finally, an easy photo challenge from the folks at The Daily Post. Here’s a rural and an urban version. The first photo is from Lamar Valley in Yellowstone National Park where the bison roam free. The second photo is from New Year’s Eve last year in London. The Boyfriend and I joined a packed crowd at Trafalgar Square and I lifted my camera above my head and just snapped away. Not bad for blind shooting. (Frequent readers of this blog will realize that I’m cheating a bit because I’ve used a similar photo for a “red” challenge, but fireworks are practically an invitation to cheat, so it’s not really my fault.)

PHOTO CHALLENGE: RENEWAL

This week’s photo challenge is renewal. This was a tough one, but as I was going through my pictures, it hit me: Cherry blossoms are Washington D.C.’s version of renewal.

Every year, at the end of March or beginning of April, the cherry blossoms bloom in Washington D.C. for two weeks. In D.C., these flowers are a sign that winter is coming to an end and spring is on the way. It is a sign of good things to come.

Tourists from all around the world come to photograph the beautiful pink and white flowers in the shadow of the monuments. Last year, I grabbed my camera on a blustery Sunday morning and spent a couple of hours trying to do these flowers justice.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: GEOMETRY

This week’s photo challenge is a hard one. I confess, I gravitate toward landscape photography, and it’s hard to find a geometric photo in the thousands of mountains and waterfall pictures I have taken. Hopefully, this does the trick.

These are pictures of one of the many amazing ceilings at the Vatican.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Compliments of The Daily Post, this week’s photo challenge is foreign. There are a lot of photos I could post for this one, but I’ve decided to play the nostalgia card.

This is an iconic picture of Rome on a wet December day, but there is something important you can’t see just by looking at this photo: This was my very first trip to Europe. After years of claiming I had no desire to cross the Atlantic, this trip infected me with the travel bug. I’ve been obsessed ever since.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

This week’s photo challenge is screaming for sunset pictures. These were taken on the beach in Croatia.

TRYING SOMETHING NEW: WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE

The folks at The Daily Post challenge bloggers to a weekly photo challenge, and it seems to be all the rage will my fellow wordpressers. Since it seems like a perfectly¬† good excuse to take more pictures, I’m going to give it a whirl. This week’s challenge is BIG. So here is my photographic interpretation of big.

New York Times Building

The New York Times building. At 1,046 feet, it is the 4th tallest building in New York City, the 9th tallest in the U.S., and the 58th tallest in the world. (This ranking includes the still uncompleted Freedom Tower.)
