Week 2 - Photography Challenge Showcase

Over at Erin's blog she has created a little Photography Challenge for the month of May. The challenge is to take a photograph each day and explore a new aspect of photography.
While on holiday I have been using some of Erin's challenges during some of my travels. Here is my second weeks attempt.

We are currently living up on a hill and do not see any sunsets from here.  Yesterday we visited an animal rehab centre and this is what I saw with the sun setting in the background.  I am off to Johannesburg on Friday and will try to take a sunset photo from there.

Paul and I walked down the hill one morning and this is looking back over the farm at Trackers where we are staying.

The Person I love
When I met Paul I discovered he loved all birds of prey and was an avid falconer.  Yesterday for he got to hold a Hooded Vulture on the glove.

A Colour Scheme
Here in the bush the uniform that all the rangers and farmers wear is khaki in colour.  Last week while in town I discovered a wonderful shop and had a serious lapse of self control.  Here My N is in his "Ranger" uniform.

Playing with Shadows.
On Mother's Day Paul took me out for a cuppa and when we were done I saw this basket with it's shadows...

A Photo depicting motion.
This week I have had a few opportunities to capture motion.  I couldn't choose one so I put them all up.
Here is some honey pouring into a bucket.
After bringing the bee's back to the house they were attracted to the light.
Here is a photo of their flight path.
A lovely fountain at the cafe.


Clouds coming in over the mountains on the way home from our trip.

Thank you Erin I have once again enjoyed this weeks challenges.  I am eagerly taking photo's for this current week.

Don't forget to pop on over to Seven Little Australians and have a look at the photo's everyone is showcasing.



  1. Hi Chareen,
    Thanks for popping over to my blog to see my photos and it has been a joy for me to stop by here to see yours. They are beautiful clear photos. I particularly love the ones of the basket and the honey. Gorgeous!

    1. I really love your photo's and would love to come over and learn from you.

      I must confess I was pleased with the basket one too :o) I am just pleased that Erin put forth the challenge otherwise I would not have noticed it and taken a picture.

  2. Stunning photos, again, Chareen! I like the way you set up your shots. I don't think I would have thought to take a shot of the basket, but it looks so good.

    Oops, seeing your post makes me realise that I forgot to link to Erin's - back to fix that up, now:-O

    Praying for your safe trip on Friday.

    God bless:-)

    1. Hi Vicky

      Ordinarily I would not have taken a shot of the basket. It's thanks to Erin that I took it as I was looking for shadows because of her photo challenge.

      Thanks for your prayers and encouragement.

  3. My fav shot this week is of your Paul, very nice. Goes to show the rule of thirds is true, I've been conscious of that alot lately, makes a difference. The honey and the bees are also great:)

    1. Hi Erin.

      I tend to struggle with the rule of thirds. I enjoyed the challenge of motion. Thanks for the ideas :) and for hosting.

  4. I love that shadow picture and your honey and bee pictures are just fabulous!

    1. Hi Deanne

      Thanks :)

      I was a little startled when I looked at the bee picture as I was not expecting the reflection on them :) But really pleased I took the pic

  5. Some wonderful opportunities beautifully captured ... I particularly liked the close up of honey and the bees was very clever. The ranger angle was also very effective.

    1. Thank you PC. I have really enjoyed the challenges that Erin has put up for the month.

  6. Beautiful photos, Chareen! This is amazing! I do think the honey photo is my favorite:)Thanks for sharing
