Photo Challenge: Dog Daze of Summer

How about a new challenge? The last one turned out to be loads of fun and there were some fine photos taken! I just love seeing the ideas that you all come up with when we do these challenges.

Dog Days were popularly believed to be an evil time "when the seas boiled, wine turned sour, Quinto raged in anger, dogs grew mad, and all creatures became languid, causing to man burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies".  My mind translates that to mean the hottest, most humidly miserable days of Summer.  So let's see what our interpretation  this challenge will lead us to.

Remember,,,,HAVE fun and SHOOT!!

P.S. Another ding-dong minute here,,,might help if I put the Challenge Due Date?  How about Saturday, September 10th, y'all?  Thank you Miz Donna over in Tennessee. My ding-dong minutes are become more and more frequent lately.

Photo Challenge: Portraits

Animal portraits are fun to do.
Time to post the new photo challenge so we can get our heads around some ideas of how we'll complete it. I can't remember if we've ever done a Portraits challenge, have we? Well, have or haven't, we're gonna, and I know everyone is going to put their own spin on it so that this challenge will be as surprising and pleasing as all the challenges in the past have been. So how about August 20th for a post date? That gives us almost 3 weeks to get our thinking caps on.
Or maybe you'll do a family portrait.
Babies, friends, strangers, kids, just have fun with it!  Don't forget to always carry your camera everywhere you go cause you never know what you'll come across that needs shooting!

Photo Challenge: God Bless America

It's near 'bout that time for flashy fireworks and flag waving so that we can wish our great country another Happy Birthday so I thought "God Bless America" would be an honorable topic for our next challenge.

Just do whatever it takes to feel good about honoring the good ol, U.S. of A.  Doctor up your photo with frames or filters, add graphics to your shot to enhance or make it flashy.  Photos are due to be  posted on your blogs (or other site) on Saturday, July 2, 2011.

Click on the blue button (or whatever shows up down below) and type in your photo site location cause that's where we'll be clicking on July 2nd to see all of the great entries.

New Place for Challenges

Just an extra click or two and we're right back into the business of challenging ourselves to use our cameras and learn new things about taking pictures.  Miz Donna has done the most fantastic job at keeping us in the challenge business for such a long time now.  I sure hope I can do this even half as well as she did.  Thank you Miz Donna for the excellent adventures you've led us on with our cameras.

Now, if I could just get this darned Blogger to cooperate so I could finish tidying up my site here.,,,,anybody know what happened to the place where one could change the colors on the blog?

I think for the first challenge at our new site we're going to go with a PLAYING topic.  What do you think?  Let your imaginations run wild and don't forget to take your camera everywhere you go!  How does Saturday, June 18, 2011 sound for a post time?  Get your name in the links and let's see how much PLAYING there is going on around us. Please feel free to post several photos if you'd like cause we love to look.
