2014 Photography Challenge- Doorways

Love taking photos?  Me too!  Sometimes I fancy myself as a pretty decent photographer especially when I get to play with digital software programs.  I love to challenge myself with new themes in order to make myself think outside the box and come up with interesting photos.  And that’s where you come in!

Challenge yourself to take great photos based on the current theme and share them with Sitcom readers! Want to join in?

We have a new challenge every two weeks. This will give us all a chance to get lots of great photos submitted before the deadline! Last time, our challenge was “Back to School”.  I loved looking at all the photos submitted with the back to school theme!  Click here to see the fun photos submitted for the Back to School Photo Challenge!

This week our theme is: “Doorways”

Our challenge was to capture a doorway or entranceway in a unique or unusual way.  While traveling in Key West, my husband and ran across this old fort that was overseen by the Key West Garden Club.  A marvelous place full of history, beautiful plants and tons of large lizards!  We spent several hours wandering the grounds and enjoying the atmosphere.  The old brickwork of this entranceway caught my eye.

This photo was taken with my Canon SX30IS, and edited with the free software at Picmonkey.com.

So how did you do?

It’s not too late!  Email your “Doorway” photos to me! Check out the Submission Guidelines. I will post your photos here along with any information that you would like to include.

You have two more weeks!  Feel free to send your original photo!

This is the doorway to a room in an old shack that has been on my parent’s place since I can remember.  Many hours were spent playing in there as children and later the room behind this door turned into a farm storage (junk) room.  I don’t have nerve enough to try to even open the door these days.  Who knows what has been stashed away there. ~ Louise Miller

Next Week’s Challenge- Circles

Our challenge next week is to create photos that illustrate the theme of circles.  Think about creating something unique based on the shapes around you.  What do you see that reflects the shape of a circle?  Need an example?
