July Photo Challenge: Books and Reading

Here we go again!

 Reading is a relaxing and fun. It can calm you down, take you away from it all. You get to get into someone else's skin for a little while leaving yourself behind. You learn about new things, subconsciously improve your vocabulary, and even form new opinions, although you may not realize it at the time.  It can provide information, be fun, exciting, scary, funny,,, anything you want it to be. I love it so much that I wish everyone could feel the same anticipation that I do when I open a new book for the first time and the same feeling of sadness when a good book is coming to an end.

 I now, also, own an e-reader. Mine is a Kindle and I really love it too, but it will never replace the smell or feel of a book in your hands and there are times when I need that.

So, here we go.  Our new Photo Challenge will be Books and Reading. You can interpret it however you wish,,,maybe photos of a library, or a bookshelf, or favorite books, newspapers, magazines, your e-reader, people reading, where ever your camera leads you that is where you should go.

Now grab your camera and go out and have fun with this new challenge. Get to snappin' and shootin'! Click the little blue inlinkz thingy below this post to sign up so we'll know where to go to see your shots.  We should be done and posted so everyone can view them on Saturday, July 14, 2012.

Photo Challenge: Childhood Memories

Do you often come across items, or events, or places, that remind you of your childhood?  It was a time when most of us didn't have a care in the world except for school. Once that was over for the day, or even the year, we had loads of time to plan and plot out our play time and those were the best times.

SO, lets let our memories guide our cameras back to our childhood. 

Have fun, shoot and show as many photos as you need or want to, and most of all,  don't forget to take your camera everywhere!

We'll set Saturday, June 23, 2012 as our date to have our photos posted so we can all take a look at the fantastic memories and imaginations that I know are going to be flowing.  Click the blue link down there and add your link information, just be sure to have your challenge post up on the day we chose to share them.

Happy Snapping!!
