Kitty Cat

Hey there Stash. This kitty hangs out all day on a huge piece of land with the chickens. Every time I'd try to take a picture of her from the ground, she would come up to me and purr and want me to pet her which made it extremely difficult to get a picture that was actually in focus. I love that she has a mustache.

Turdus migratorius - aka Robin

I thought I would share this photo with you. I was trying to get a photo of a squirrel in a tree but this robin scared the thing away.

Pick A Something -Doors (akasha)

Sorry guys, I have been so busy the past month that I've completely slacked on this assignment and figuring out the next one! Anyway, I chose doors for my "pick a something" and went around Pittsburgh to some old cathedrals. I wasn't super thrilled with how they turned out at first, ( I felt like they were all so similar) so I changed them up a bit on Photoshop.

Any takers on choosing a new topic for October?

"Pick A Something" [Hyun]

These past couple of months have been crazy so I did some poor man's photography around the house. My theme is "Toys." Not crazy about them but I need to get back in the game.

Pick-A-Something {McCall}

I think I'm stretching this subject just a tad, but here goes.  Since it's been raining quite a bit here lately, I decided to choose water as my topic.

New Topic!

Sorry I slacked last month in July, I have a pretty good excuse though since I did have a baby :) Anyway, now it's time to get back on track! I wanted to find something a little different for the month of August, and I came across the digital photography school's website with a list of ideas to help boost creativity in photography. I really liked this idea, so I think we'll try it out for August. I'm excited to see what you all come up with!


Pick something and try to get a collection of photos representing it.  For instance, pick a color and try to go all day photographing only red things, or try only getting pictures of things that are square when you’re on a walk.  I was once at a cookout and, while I took photos of other things, I also tried to get  photos of people’s shoes.

The upside of this project is that it, once again, gets you to start seeing ordinary things in different way – taking a snapshot looking down at everyone’s shoes is going to start to get boring, so it forces you to start thinking creatively.  The downside of this project is that people are going to start giving you weird looks for crawling around on the ground taking pictures of shoes while everyone else is enjoying hamburgers and potato salad.

Double Exposure, Kalista

I've loved everyone's posts on this topic, but I was going to skip it myself because it seemed too overwhelming. Akasha walked me through the steps (thanks so much Akasha!) but it still took a long time to decide what pictures to use and put it together. It ended up being fun though and if I had more time I'd do another! Thanks for picking this topic.



I couldn't decide if I preferred color or sepia so here are both. :)
