2012 Photography Challenge- Colors!

Colors - Newspaper Machines /Suzys Artsy Craftys SitcomOur theme this week is colors!  I challenged you to take a photo of something colorful.  My entry this week is a line of newspaper machines that I discovered while traveling in Florida this past summer.  We stopped at a gas station to fill up and I happened to notice this colorful line of machines.  So naturally I had to get out the the car and snap some photos while my husband handled filling the tank while he pretended not to know the crazy lady who was taking photos of the newspaper machines.

Some folks just don’t appreciate art.  Ha!

So how did you do?

Email your color submissions to me!  Check out the Submission Guidelines.  I will post your photos here along with any information that you would like to include.  If you have a website, feel free to add a link to your site!  I will be taking color submissions all week!  Feel free to send your original photo!

Our theme for next week is “Serenity”.  See the information at the bottom of the post for details!

This weeks Submissions:

swizzle collection Equipping Catholic Families

Can you believe that my Dad handed over his vintage swizzle stick collection? Isn’t this awesome?  My Dad has always had a lot of collections…but we didn’t know that this was one of them.  Do they still make swizzle sticks?  I haven’t gotten my kids to count them yet, but there must be a couple hundred in this box!  Just looking for a way to show off this collection or make an activity of it…and couldn’t resist sending it in for your “Colors” Photography Challenge. ~Monica- www.equippingcatholicfamilies.com.

My colors were found while visiting a junk shop in Cave Spring, GA last week.  I found the antique glassware sitting in front of the window in a back room of the store.  The sun was shining through reflecting the colors beautifully. ~Vonne Pope

Our Theme for Next Week- Serenity

The definition of serenity is calm, peace, tranquility, composure, peace of mind, stillness, calmness, quietness, peacefulness, quietude, placidity.  Your challenge is to come up with a photograph that shows your definition of serenity.  Would you like a few examples (at least of what my idea of serenity is?).

Now go take some beautiful shots!  I’ll see you back next week!
