I must confess, I thought today was Friday and wasn't prepared to post my Round Robin Photo Challenge photo today. The current challenge is to think of three themes for the new year and then photograph one of the themes.
First my three (actually 4) suggestions for upcoming themes:
"Childhood Memories" an example would be something that evokes a childhood memory.
"Dirty, Grungy" such as something considered ugly, run-down, dilapidated. Sometimes they can make some beautiful images!
"Silence" - again this is a photo that is going to evoke a feeling. No, I haven't really thought this one out! It was an idea that came to me this morning as I looked out the window.
And the one I'll use today is "Expressive Moments"
Yes, I'm cheating and using a wedding photograph! It's a time of MANY expressions.
This particular photograph needs no explanation!
Early last year I volunteered to be a photographer with Op: Love Reunited. It's a free service for our military who are deploying, deployed and returning home from deployment.
The photograph above was taken during a homecoming which is an emotionally charged event. I often find myself taking photos hoping that the auto setting is working because my own eyes are to misty to see clearly. The above photograph was actually published in our local newspaper!
Whoever says pets aren't expressive, obviously doesn't have a fur baby in their life! Below is Toby who isn't happy that I made him wear a silly looking hat. He's giving me an expression, the "I can't BELIEVE you are making me do this!". Which is the same expression my three children gave me on many occasions!
I hope you liked the suggestions and photographs! I'm looking forward to participating in as many Round Robin Photo Challenges as possible this year.
