Anyone up for a 15 min Photo Challenge? Lets see how many people want to get involved. I think it will be a fun way to share some interesting pictures and get us out making some photographs! soooo who's with me???
Find an interesting location, and take 15 min to photograph it, Try to be as unique and artistic as you can, but only allow yourself 15 min. Then post the pictures and share your links with the rest of us. It's easy and fun and should be creative.
Challenge accepted! :) I've been in a bit of a funk lately (long story) and my motivation has been on the decline...so, this is JUST what I needed today!
Pictures from around my immediate neighborhood, including some from the backyard.

I have had the opportunity to get out lately, trips to Seattle, hiking, and biking. The weather has been amazing.
This is a photo I took while in Kirkland on the water front - Lake Washington.

I have taken a number of pictures over the past several weeks...so I'm cheating a bit and posting them on days when they weren't taken. But I'm okay with that...I hope you are too! :)
This was taken during my trip to Seattle...

Time has really gotten away from me lately with school (Biology), photography class, work, meetings, life in general. The weather is starting to turn so I'm really excited about that for so many reasons!
I thought I would share a little something I did in photography class...

I know, I have been really bad about uploading pics lately...too much to do and not enough time in the day.
This is a picture I took on Saturday from Tubbs Hill in Lake Couer D Alene.
I will get back into the groove and start posting again.
Everyone has been doing a really great job on this project and your photos really inspire me!

Today I was at the 2010 Go Red for Women luncheon. It was a great event with a lot of wonderful women to spend time with. A lot of seminars providing information on how to prevent heart disease.
Not sure how many of you are award that heart disease is the number one killer of women 20 years and older.
This was one of the items up for the silent auction...I just LOVE Sock Monkeys!!!

A lot of people don't know that 90% of bird species are monogamous...with that said there are several levels of monogamy:
Lifetime monogamy - where the 2 birds pair up and remain together for every breeding season for the rest of their lives, in fact if one individual from the couple were to die or get killed, the partner may refuse to mate for many breeding seasons, even for life (e.g., White Albatross, certain parrots, Canadian Geese).
Serial monogamy where a bird can be monogamous for one breeding season with a partner and then in the next breeding season be monogamous with a different partner. So that each breeding season the bird is monogamous but the partners are different (such as pigeons).
(3) Genetic monogamy is when DNA tests can confirm that a female's offspring matches up with the DNA of only one father, although the couple may not be physically together.

By popular demand, I am going to post the series of 10 photos which won most artistic this week in my photography class. I was really amazed that I won...I certainly didn't think it was my best work.
Along with this week's title came a prize...I think it is really cool. It is a portable tripod, of sorts. It is made up of an "eye" bolt and cable (roughly 6 ft long), by placing the screw in the bottom of my camera and stepping on the cable with my foot I can create tension to steady the camera and move fairly freely. Pretty nifty huh?
Each week we have our instructor look at the 10 pictures (2 from each day) we have selected from all of the pictures we have taken to come up with one we will print and then show at the end of eight weeks. So my question to you is, of these 10 photos which one did my instructor choose for my 8 1/2 x 11 to be printed for the show?
