I’ve wanted to submit photos to contests for a while now, and I have to start somewhere. A few days ago I stumbled across the I Heart Faces photo contest and decided to enter. Hopefully this will be the second of many. (I also entered the Mobile Photography Awards a few months ago and received […]

This has probably been one of my favorite themes thus far. Creating images with dramatic lighting has definitely brought back some sparks for me. Please continue through the circle and visit Lisa Rappa’s dramatic light work here.

    Wow Andrea! So many beautiful images. My favorite is the woman’s back. My eye is just drawn to it!ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful set of images… fantastic job! You really rocked this challenge!ReplyCancel

  • Andrea, that second image of the woman’s back is portfolio-worthy… simply stunning work. This genre is a strength for you. The image of the girl with the cup (next to the back) looks like it’s from the late 1800s. Great job on these!!!ReplyCancel

  • Way to knock this challenge out of the park! Beautiful set ๐Ÿ™‚ congrats!ReplyCancel

  • These are all gorgeous Andrea!! My favorites are the fist and second. Your use of light, lines, and shadows in the first is just gorgeous, and the black and white of the bare back is just stunning!ReplyCancel

Lately, my big girl has been my muse. Oh, how she tolerates my infrequent wishes. Here’s a little something spooky for this past month’s theme. Please continue through the circle and visit Lisa Rappa’s spooky treatsย here.

My wish is to sit down for a quiet hour (while not half asleep) and catch up with all the adventures we’ve been on. Right now my 1 year old is screaming in my ear and will hardly let me sit for a minute to have a thought. I think her second molar is cutting […]

Well, hello. It’s been a while, eh? I’d like to say I have loads of pictures to share from our overseas adventure, and that’s probably what some of you are expecting. However, I ended up almost exclusively using my mobile phone. As it happened, toting my big camera around, trying to take pictures, while making […]

    Great job Andrea! I love the animosity between the trucks ๐Ÿ˜‰ The shoe pic is great–can feel the sense of being left…or alone.ReplyCancel

  • Great job ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Andrea, you are being too hard on yourself! You did a great job interpreting this month’s theme. I love the trees and do see gnarled old fingers reaching through. The trucks do look like they are fighting and the shoes tell a story. Well done!ReplyCancel

  • You did a great job with a theme was challenging! I love the shoe shot especially. I do see what you mean about the trees and the fingers. And yes, I those trucks are duking it out!ReplyCancel

  • Gosh, I think you did a great job with this Andrea. Love the trucks playing the best with the red shed behind. I know what you mean about trees, I see them as “human” or having personality all the time.ReplyCancel

  • Gosh, I think you did a great job with this. Love the trucks “playing” with the red shed behind. Looks so cozy!ReplyCancel

  • DawneC

    I love your take on the challenge – the trucks is my favorite image! Great job!ReplyCancel

  • It was a tricky theme for sure, but my favourite is the shoes. I hope that dust continues to settle for you, I know the feeling!ReplyCancel
