Week 1 - Photography Challenge Showcase

I love taking photographs and capturing memories. One of the things I desire to learn is how to use my camera more effectively to capture the precious moments that happen around me daily.

I was reading on Erin's blog the other day that she has created a little Photography Challenge for the month of May. The challenge is to 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 first weeks attempt.

Low Angle

Changing Light

A pink rose with the sun shining on it from different angles.

Up Close
Macro photography is one of my favourite forms of photography. I love to look for the smallest flower on my travels and see if I can photograph it.

This photograph could be for two divisions. High Angle and from a distance.

Sir N didn't want his photo taken !

Thank you Erin I had a lot of fun this past week.

Don't forget to pop on over to Seven Little Australian's Photo Challenge Showcase Blog Hop and see the photographs other friends are taking and be inspired.

[PS To illustrate the length of time it takes to use the Internet in Hoedspruit:  It took two hours to upload these pics :) ]


  1. 2 hours!! Wow! I'm so glad you persevered, Chareen, because these photos are great! I can't make up my mind which I like best - the rose, the sunrise, the distance shots or the ones of your beautiful children. They're all lovely.

    God bless:-)
