Artsy Fartsy Tuesday-Finishing up the photo challenges
Wow, I’m done with both 52 week challenges for 2017. I have to say, I’m pretty happy with what I accomplished this year. I certainly learned some new things, and some weeks I had to really stretch to take a photo that would fit the theme. I did the Dogwood 52 challenge in 2016 too, and looking at those photos compared to this year, I have definitely improved.
So, here are the last few weeks for both challenges.
Week 48 of the Dogwood challenge was Artistic bodyscape. I had to cheat a little on this one. Rather than use a human subject, I used Torrey. But I did do an artistic edit.
Week 48 for 2LilOwls was worms eye view. Walking in the fall leaves I was inspired for this one. I lay down, and shot the dry leaves.
Hard to believe there are only a few more weeks left in the year, and therefore only a few more weeks of photo challenges. I look back at my photos from the start of the year, and it seems like I just started taking them.
Week 44 – Imagination for 2LilOwls
I created this image, but I also like to think that maybe Torrey imagines she is playing with fairies.
I couldn’t do this week for the Dogwood challenge because it required an ND filter, which I don’t have.
The last couple of weeks for the photo challenges have been different, and well, challenging. I suppose that’s the whole point…right?!
The Dogwood challenge is the one that really gets me thinking the most though. It is an advanced challenge, so there is that.
Week 42 was music in an artistic way. I really thought hard about this one, then I out of the blue I realized we have the perfect thing to photograph. Al plays the Native American flute. These flutes are generally made by hand, by true artisans. This flute was made by a friend of ours, and gifted to Al last year. A true piece of art, that makes beautiful music.
