February Photography Challenge 2014 // Winter in Grand Rapids

A few years ago I participated in a photography challenge for the month of February, following a series of prompts for every day of the month.  I will call my 2012 February photo challenge “As of Yet Unpublished Daily Photo Challenge of Awesomeness”  because well, I never posted it!!!   So I participated in another February Photo Challenge this year and I am happy to report I made it through the month, posting a photograph everyday from a prompt (on Instagram  this time.) Because I never take the easy road, I added an element of difficulty to mine by photographing not only the prompt, but on a continuing theme.  I’ll post the daily photographs in chunks starting with the first 4 days.  Hopefully a theme will start to emerge as more are posted.  Enjoy my take of cold cold cold snowy February in Michigan.

Friday Favorites — Michigan Summer Photographs

Remembering, imagining, dreaming of the rich, hot, luscious green days of a Michigan summer and when every moment felt like this photograph.

Sigh. So green, lush, beautiful. The hammock, the garden hose, and the bare feet tell me everything and make me want to be there!

Oh . . . I am longing for it right along with you . . . Love!

Friday Favorites — Playing in the Shadows

My favorite times to create a photograph are when they are so absorbed in doing their own thing, being their own selves, that they never suspect how closely I am watching them and how much they engage ME.

Your work is always so stunning – this one just makes you sit and stare. Lovely.

Mesmerizing. Wonderful. Art.
You are soooo talented!

Friday Favorites — Photograph your Family

If I had my say we would all have a camera in every room of our house AND in our back pocket so we will never miss the tiny, important moments, like this one.

I couldn’t agree more! I just picked up this book, on recommendation, called “Hands Free Mama” and the whole point of the book is to stop being distracted and see the beauty around you as it happens. I really didn’t need that book. I SEE the beauty everyday, in the little things. As do you, clearly.
