I love taking pictures!
So, it’s no wonder I got excited when Beth announced her new blog carnival. It’s called YOU CAPTURE and each week she will issue a photography challenge to her readers. Then, you take a picture, post it on your blog, link to her blog, I Should Be Folding Laundry and visit the other participants. [And of course, leave comments.]
And, with a little luck, I’ll learn something about photography in the meantime.
The challenge this week is to take a picture of something you love without using your flash.
I know very little nothing about taking a quality picture without a flash, but I did it anyway.
My favorite thing would typically be my two boys, however, one day last week, I was outside sweeping our driveway and porch which happened to be covered in about 2 inches of snow. (McDaddy is of course still on his 6-month vacation, so all domestic duties are mine.) I was out sweeping the driveway (I use a broom instead of a shovel) and I said out loud, “Lord, some sun would sure be nice to help melt this snow away.” As if He flipped a switch, the sun shined (or is it shone) right between these tree branches over top of me.
I chuckled and said, “Thanks, God.”
Me and God.
We’re tight like that.
This picture proves it! There sure is something to be said for natural light.
Now, head over to I Should Be Folding Laundry and check out some more great photos.
