The folder called 08-01-07 is kind of all over the place.
Next Saturday’s folder involves the Iowa State Fair.
Easter was a big day (naturally) at our church for the Youth Group. They starred in the Sonrise Service. Served Egg Bake between the Tradition and Contemporary Worship Services. They ran an Easter Egg Hunt.
Here are a few pictures from that day. Easter Egg Hunt photo credit to Jaxon Schoff.
I hope your Easter was as wonderful as mine and these photos only cover about 4 hours of my wonderful Easter!
People love TREE! Lots of submissions for TREE!
But you don’t want to listen to me talk all tommyrot about participation rates. You want to see the TREE:
But enough dwelling on the past. Time to look to the future. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future! This week’s theme:
On a personal note, there are many people that think that I have all the themes planned out. I don’t. All the themes are on slips of paper in a blank DVD-R lid on my work desk. Every Monday morning I pull out a new slip and that is how the themes are decided. I do not try to align any theme up with a certain time of year. TREE just happened to coincide with Earth Day. Believe me. If I was lining themes up with holidays or times of year, HIGH PERSPECTIVE would’ve been last week.
What is HIGH PERSPECTIVE? In photographic terms, it is getting high above a subject and photographing it. It doesn’t have to be super high. You don’t have to go to tall building and look down. A few feet above your subject would work. If you want to phone it in. I would urge you to go out and find a cliff or a bridge or a parking ramp or a tall building or a roof top and get a different perspective on the world. Then share it with us.
As always, feel free to define the theme any way you want!
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION
1. The picture has to be taken the week of the theme. This isn’t a curate your pictures challenge. This is a get your butt off the couch (my personal experience) and put your camera in your hands challenge. Don’t send me a picture of you next to the Eiffel Tower, when I know you were in Iowa all week. I will point out that I have let that slide some in the past. I will not in the future. Since it is literally about the only rule.
2. Your submission needs to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge. It should be pointed out that this blog auto-publishes at 12:01 on Mondays. So it wouldn’t hurt to get your picture in earlier.
That is it, them’s the rules.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION
Nothing new to report. I’ll try to do better next week.
Want your own Photography 139 email subscription? Call, email, or text me and I’ll get you the hook up.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 GALLERY DIVISION
Sometimes people send me descriptions of their photos. I’ve never done anything with that information in the past. However, if you send me a description in the future, I will add it to your image in the Weekly Photo Challenge Gallery that houses all the submissions.
That’s all I got for today, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will commune right here again next Monday. Hopefully it will be a very high Monday!
This is the final photo from the Women’s March back in January that I’m going to post individually. However, I think this is my absolute favorite sign from that day:
Sometime soon, I’ll do a post of the best of the rest.
