Black and White Wednesday
Last night, I was wrapping up my June 2010 Photo Hunt when I looked around my hotel room and saw some interesting elements that needed to be photographed. By the way, I will officially be unveiling my photo hunt items tomorrow, so please come back tomorrow to check out my work! 

The first of these “elements” was perfect for my POTW challenge: shutter speed. Yeah, I’m lame and went back to the ever popular water rushing over a cup in the sink. I’m hoping to continue experimenting with shutter speed, but for now…

If you want to see more POTW entries, check back tomorrow, here.

The next of my hotel elements was an interesting lamp – I love the curves.

And the final element was the bottom of a sconce in my room. I love the shadows that are created by changing the light in the room.

So here’s a challenge for you…have you photographed the elements of your home? 

Two nights ago, I posted a couple of pictures for Simplicity’s Challenge: Corners of Your Home. Although I only spent a few minutes snapping pictures, I loved seeing a new perspective of the everyday items that lay around my house. If you’re ever having a photography block, take 20 minutes in one room and take as many pictures as you can.(try the bathroom for example). Then look back at your work. You’ll find that in 20 minutes, you have to change your perspective in order to use the time. Walk around an object and photograph it at multiple angles.

Oh, and one more thing. I just received an email this morning from Christy at Skinned Knees to inform me that I won this week’s challenge: friends. When I submitted that photo, I had second thoughts…I mean I was the only entry that didn’t have cute kids or at least a human in the shot. But, her son loves turtles! If you haven’t done so yet, check out my friendly turtle photo: Why Can’t We Be Friends.

Have a great day and stay tuned for tomorrow. I can’t wait to share my photo hunt with you!
