are you getting tired of pictures of my kids?

I can't help it, they're cute.  And I know I'm biased, but I just can't seem to find better subject matter for these fun photo challenges I've been encountering.  Today there're more than usual, because I've branched out a bit from my normal haunts.  You should totally jump over and link up your own photos.  Every challenge (except the photo scavenger hunt) ends on Tuesday, so you've got some time!




The photo scavenger hunt over at Ramblings and Photos was the most challenging I've attempted thus far.  I just drew creative blanks for most of the items.  Nonetheless, I made it through all five:


Bokeh
bug getting a drink at the little zoo here in town.  He was sitting on the drinking fountain - it was pretty novel.

Business
mr lookin' all spiffy in work attire.

Eco-Friendly
we're required to recycle here, or be penalized with a hefty fine.  The city gave us these HUGE-MONGOUS recycling cans to help us out.  It takes up like half the garage, but we're saving the earth, so there you go.


Repetition
Alright, alright, I know... this isn't "photographically" or "visually" repetitious, but if your kid loved this book like bug loves this book, there would be no better representation of repetition to you, either.


Music
don't think this needs explanation... except to let you know that it's one of my favorite hymns.  
and a closer look, if you're curious.








At iheartfaces, the theme this week is photojournalistic.  I love this style of photography, and for some reason I still had a tough time deciding what photo to share.  I kept feeling like I was getting it all wrong.


First Timers
Their first time on a tire swing.  I could be wrong, but I'm guessing the overall feeling is NOT "impressed".




The trendy treehouse has a fun theme this week: Laugh.  I've got some silly little kiddos, so it wasn't too difficult to snap some laughing photos!

ShutterLoveTuesdays


Lastly, but certainly not least, I recently happened onto thepunkrockmom, who's got a fun challenge going on.  She's currently enrolled in online photography classes and has thrown down the gauntlet to all who care to participate.  We've got to follow along and do her homework with her!  There're fun prizes involved here, people, so you know you don't want to miss it.  (Like we needed another excuse to take cute pictures...)

Our homework this week was "Perspective."  She offered multiple "themes" to help us along, and we could choose however many we wanted to approach.  So, here are mine:


Perspective - A tree branch from the ground up
I call it "On the Fence"


Perspective - A person from close up
"Sunny Days"





Perspective - Person from the left

"Bare"



Perspective - Own unique point of view








"Taking a Break"















Phew!  I know there was a lot jammed in here, but you'll indulge me, I'm sure.  I'm an amateur, but I'm having fun!
