-4th of July-

This week's theme was centered around the 4th of July. I decided to post two (surprise)- one from the Balloon Fest, and my favorite shot of fireworks.

-Black & White-

And now we're caught up! The theme from last week was "Black & White". This shot was taken downtown at Library Square during the Utah Arts Festival.


The last theme in June was "Lines". I took these shots in the "graveyard" (of old signs) on my last day at YESCO.

The first is from the old "First Security Bank" sign that was on their downtown building for decades:

The second is of some unused "Cabela's" letters:


In June, we went on a camping trip to Yellowstone National Park. Naturally, the theme that week was centered around the trip.

First is one of my favorite pictures from the weekend:

Next is my choice for "Macro":

My choice for "Landscape":

And last, my choice for "Portrait":


The second theme in June was "Texture", and again, I had a hard time choosing just one. I've been having fun using my macro features on my camera though, and this was a great theme for that.


The first theme in June was "Emotion". This one was a challenge for me, as I don't usually gravitate towards taking pictures of people.


The last theme in May was "Color", and I couldn't choose just one! These were taken at the nearby cemetery over Memorial Day weekend.


Our second theme in May was "New/Old". Keep in mind that all of our themes are chosen with the idea that personal interpretation is encouraged. :)


First, let's do some catch-up so that you can see what we've been up to! Our very first theme back in May was "3".

The Beginning

Welcome to the beginning of something. :) What follows will be a collection of photos that have been taken each week by us. Each week, one of us chooses a theme that we both try to realize during that week. The idea is to get using our cameras more often and become "constant" photographers that are always on the lookout for that next great shot (within the parameters of the chosen theme). Thoughts, opinions, and ideas are all welcome, and we hope you enjoy following along!
