Kitty Paw…in Color AND Black & White...

August 18, 2010
As you may or may not realize, today was a busy day for me and I’m still catching up on my blog visits. I’m also catching up on my photography challenges. In an effort to get the most bang for my photo, I’m going to share one image for multiple memes. First up, I was trying to take a picture of Kitty Paw the other night. Every time I got near her with the camera, she turned her head. The lighting wasn’t great (as you can tell), but I was able to get something. I thought this shot would be perfect for this week’s RAW(e) theme, which is: green. Kitty Paw’s...

Challenge Me Tuesday

July 27, 2010
As I mentioned in my previous post, Tuesday is an incredibly busy day in the world of photography challenges. Since my google reader is acting up today, I’m not sure if I have the time or patience to create separate posts for each challenge – besides, you guys would quickly get tired of the updates. Instead I thought I’d replicate my process from yesterday and also introduce you to some new challenges that you may or may not have heard of. First up is Trendy Treehouse’s Shutterlove Tuesday. The theme this week is “sports.” I dug into my April 2010 file and...
