Weekly Photography Challenge: Containers

23 Jul

This week at theĀ Daily Post photography challenge we were told to share photographs of containers. I am sharing a photograph from a yoga studio in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon. I have never done yoga there, but I occasionally like to go to the restaurant, called Prasad, after my Wednesday night runs. They have this neat little area where yoga mats are stored and I thought they came together and looked interesting.

Weekly Photography Challenge: Relic

16 Jul

Last summer my family and I traveled to the Washington coast to Cape Disappointment. We saw relics of a military fort at Cape Disappointment Lighthouse.

Check out the view from the end of this hike!

We also saw some amazing and majestic trees which are relics from another time.

Overall this was not a disappointing place. :)

Weekly Photography Challenge: Contrast

3 Jul

Once again a photograph from my run.  Can you tell I am spending more time training to run than taking photographs lately. This one was taken on an evening run, so the shade created even more contrast.

That is in large part because I am signed up for the Girlfriends half marathon in October, which is affiliated with Komen Race For the Cure. I have not done a half before,  in fact my first 5k was just this past St. Patrick’s Day.

I have a running partner now and she is good at pushing me,  which is great.  So we signed up for this run in part because we needed a run,  and also because I lost my best friend to breast cancer at 29.

I also have another friend who had been diagnosed recently and is now going through treatment.  I like the idea of raising funds for a cure,  but I also wanted to help her raise funds for uncovered expenses. 

My Grandma has also had breast cancer twice, so I think this is a fitting run all in all.

Needless to say,  my mind has been on running lately.

Weekly Photography Challenge: Between… post 2

This week I had the privilege of photographing this sweet new baby. He was a bit older, but very cooperative. I thought this particular photograph fits well with the photography challenge this week, between:

Weekly Photography Challenge: Between

26 Jun

Between the trees
There is a path
Green forest, protection from the rain and sun
It provides a beautiful place to walk and run…

image

A place to visit and explore
Once a week, sometimes more.
A place to escape, to mediate
A path perfect for a photograph.

All photographs taken with my phone, while on a run. And the writing above is why I am a photographer, not a writer! ;-)

Weekly Photography Challenge: Extra!

20 Jun

My daughter had her ballet recital yesterday so we did something extra to her hair.  :-)

She normally has very straight fine hair, but for the recital the teacher asked to have all the kids have curls. So here she is waiting for the curlers to curl her hair.  :-)

Have a great weekend!

Welcoming the New: Newborn Photography

13 Jun minfant1bw

I was thrilled to hear that my sweet cousin, his wife, and son welcomed into their family a new member last week. I had just finished editing the maternity photographs I took with them about two weeks ago when I heard she was born.

This last week I was pleased to take some time to both visit and take photographs of this new little girl.

Have a great weekend! :)
