I haven’t participated in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge in quite a while, but this weekend’s trip to Yosemite has me in full-on picture taking mode. The theme this week is Texture, something this park has in abundance.
Here are a couple of my favorite Yosemite texture shots so far:
Fallen Tree at Mariposa Grove
Detail Views: Boulder and Tree
View of Half Dome from Glacier Point
Yosemite Valley Near the Village
All photos were shot with a Canon 6D. The landscape views were shot with a Canon 24mm-70mm f/2.8 II lens and the detail views were shot with a Canon 50mm f1.4 lens.
This week’s photo challenge theme is Silhouette, so I thought I would share a couple of pictures from our trip to Disneyland last year. We stayed at the Grand Californian and had an amazing view of the nightly World of Color show at Disney California Adventure. The show makes for some pretty dramatic silhouettes:
The theme of this week’s photo challenge is ‘Wrong.’ I wasn’t sure what to photograph for this theme, but this morning I came across this little scene. Soccer in the house? I was thinking ‘wrong,’ but apparently my husband feels otherwise. In fact, I have feeling he was the instigator.
This is my first time participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge. I had a couple of photos from our Paris trip that I felt really nailed this week’s “Inside” theme, so I couldn’t help but include them. Going forward, I plan to challenge myself to shoot a photo specifically for the weekly theme. We’ll see how it goes. In the meantime, here’s my take on ‘Inside,’ with a couple of outsides included for the sake of comparison.
