In a Yellow House Photo Challenge: The Animal Kingdom
As you know, I am hosting the In a Yellow House challenge for the month of August while Chelsea travels the globe. My first week on the job was incredible and you guys really showed me some of your best “urban” shots. My hope is that this week is no different.

Like I said last week, there are a lot of photo challenges out there (especially on Tuesdays). This one is meant to be fun and inspiring. If you’d like to get your camera out and take a fresh shot, that’s great…but it isn’t required (we all know how busy life gets…sometimes we’ve gotta go into the archives). Each week, I’ll select a winner and at the end of August, we’ll have a vote for the best photo of the month and that person will receive some sort of prize that Chelsea will pick up in Europe.

The theme this week is “The Animal Kingdom.” I don’t want to limit your creativity by forcing you to stick to pets, farm animals, amphibians, reptiles, birds or bugs so I’m leaving the door wide open. Show me your favorite “animal” (and I use that term loosely) shot.

I personally decided to share some of the photos that I’ve been meaning to share from our trip to the aquarium while we were on vacation.

I thought I’d also share some of my photos from the zoo…but I’ll save those for tomorrow (I’ll even convert a few of my shots to black and white for Black & White Wednesday).

With all that said, now it’s time for you to link up. The linky will be open until Saturday night at 8:00 pm EST. Be sure to link directly to your blog post with your In a Yellow House photo challenge entry (not your main blog) and let me know which specific photo (choose one) within that post is being submitted to the challenge. Please also grab the button below to link back to the challenge and encourage others to join. If you really want to make my day, leave me a comment too!
