Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Love taking morning Spring walks when everything feels so… fresh!

Here are my submissions for this week’s challenge; please take a few moments to check out more submissions here.

The Week at Deep-Dish Life – Week 3

Wow, are we really nearing the end of January? That’s just hard to believe, I don’t know where the time goes. When I first decided to write this little weekly review (first post here), I had no idea how I would, week-after-week, go about sharing all the dimensions of “abundance” in my life (my one-word vision for 2015). But, thankfully, there are a number of things to share. And this week, I have some wonderful news! Hint: it’s in regards to a little bundle of joy!

I'm a Grandmother!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

Look at situations from all angles, and you will become more open. — Dalai Lama

My submission for “Angular” this week comes from a visit we paid to a local architectural work of art – The Cooper Chapel in Bella Vista, Arkansas.   It was designed by noted architect E. Fay Jones and constructed in 1988. It’s one of my favorite places to just sit in silence and soak it all in.  I love being immersed in the light.

Hope you enjoy these images of it, and my interpretation of Angular! See more interpretations here


Photo Challenge: Nighttime

This week’s challenge is to show a ‘night’ photo. I love this type of challenge. Nighttime shooting isn’t something I do often, but the challenge gave me a good chance to sit down and go through my old archives to see what I could find! The photos below are several years old but stand out as fun.

My hometown has a wonderful display of Christmas lights every year on the city square and it attracts a lot of people to the downtown area. If you are ever visiting here, I highly recommend a trip to the Fayetteville square to see Lights of the Ozarks!

I think my interest in these two photos is their oddity. Both of these photos were taken with my iPhone4s and probably were my first night shots using the iphone. Neither of them is the picture perfect image of Christmas lights, but for me, they both capture the essence of the lights – first the dots of light in the color photo, and then the light patterns in the B&W.

Hope you enjoy these! Christmas will be here before you know it and it will be another good chance for me to capture some colorful lights.
