WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: HOME

I missed last week’s challenge due to traveling and being sick, so I guess it’s appropriate that this week’s challenge is “home.” But these pictures are not actually pictures of my home; they are pictures of where I would like to live when I’m rich enough to own a second home: Sedona, Arizona.

A girl can dream, right?

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: LOVE

I actually have the same picture of those famous Paris locks featured on the Daily Post site for this week’s photo challenge, but this unconventional picture of myself and The Boyfriend in Bermuda is one of my favorites. Plus look how skinny I look!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: BEYOND

This week’s photo challenge is beyond – photos that pull the eye beyond the focal point. Not sure these fit the bill, but I’m giving it my best shot. Which one do you like best?

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: ILLUMINATION

Regular readers of this blog know that I love night photography, much to The Boyfriend’s dismay. So this week’s photo challenge was not much of a challenge. Here is London illuminated.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: RESOLVED

It took me a while to figure out what picture to post for this week’s photo challenge. I had to go all the way back to a picture I took in 2005 on a trip to Yosemite National Park. This terrifying ladder marks the final climb to the top of Half Dome. To me, this picture says RESOLVED.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: MY 2012 IN PICTURES

I’ve been waiting to post this week’s photo challenge until tonight for a reason. I thought it would be neat to compare New Year’s Eve 2011 with New Year’s Eve 2012. Last year we rang in the new year with fireworks in London. This year, we rang in 2013 with fireworks in Brussels.

London was huge. With so many people, we were at least a mile from the center of the fireworks, and I had to stand on my tip-toes to see anything. The fireworks were amazing, but a short ten minutes. Brussels, in contrast, is a small city. We got so close, my ears hurt from the pounding of the music and the fireworks. The fireworks also lasted much longer, at least 20 minutes. Unfortunately, it was raining so many of the pictures are smeared with rain drops. Both were incredible experiences and I can’t wait to plan our next New Years trip.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SURPRISE

This week’s photo challenge is surprise. How’s this for unexpected?

Yes. That is a rhino peeing.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: DELICATE

This week’s photo challenge is “delicate.”

In Washington D.C., all the flags are at half-mast in honor of the Sandy Hook victims, a reminder of the delicacy of life. Life is delicate.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHANGING SEASONS

This week’s photo challenge is changing seasons. Fortunately, we haven’t seen snow yet in D.C. so I’m still stuck in fall mode. The below photo was taken on a rainy autumn day in Boston, overlooking the Charles River.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: REFLECTIONS

This week’s challenge is reflections. I love taking reflection photos, so the challenge for me this week is picking which one to post. Here are three of my favorites. Which one do you like best?
