Yay! I've finished my second year of the project with this photo! I feel like I've learned a lot, but still have much more to learn. A big thank you to all the moderators and members of the community for all your encouraging comments every week, and for all the work you do to keep the community running smoothly.

Weekly Photo Project 2016 - Week 51 - Decay

I didn't have to go too far to find some decay today. Not my own yard, but just down the road a bit.

Weekly Photo Project - Week 50 - Self Portrait

This is a lowly selfie that I took with my cell phone, merged with a photo of trees from a few weeks ago. I wanted to try something artistic, so I looked online for inspiration. I showed a few family members with mixed reviews, but I like it, so I decided to go with it.

Weekly Photo Project 2016 - Week 48 - Happiness

Happiness ... how to represent the concept in photo ...? The obvious choice for me would be photos of people smiling and laughing, but I decided to take a different route.

In a physical sense, happiness, for me, is harder to come by in the wintertime. Even if the weather is not too cold, I quickly tire of the dark, dreary days. My mood dampens with the lack of sunlight. For this reason, I always like to invest in flowers that bloom throughout the winter. Pansies are my favorite.

On this particular day, the temperature was cold, but the sun was out, making it infinitely better. Late in the day, my grandson and I made a trip to Lowe's to buy my winter flowers. I'm getting a late start this year, but better late than never! The sun was setting quickly and had already disappeared from much of my yard by the time we got home, but I found a sunny patch, sat down on the ground, and started taking photos. Seeing these beauties when I step outside on a dreary day will certainly add to my happiness.

Weekly Photo Project 2016 - Week 47 - Abstract

I tried numerous ideas for this theme, from shooting the moss growing on a rock to taking a photo of the empty space between the design of a plant stand. None were exactly what I wanted. I also tried taking photos of trees while zooming in and out, but they didn't turn out well.

Finally, I looked for instructions online. I learned that I had my settings all wrong! Using the instructions, I finally achieved the look I was going for. (If all else fails, read the instructions, right?) http://digital-photography-school.com/creating-abstract-images-in-nature/

Weekly Photo Project 2016 - Week 46 - Sunset or Sunrise

The sun is setting so early now! Don't like these shorter days, but have always loved the colors in the sunsets.

Weekly Photo Project 2016 - Week 45 - Trees

I like photographing trees, especially looking up at them and seeing their leaves against the blue of the sky.

Weekly Photo Project - Week 44 - Emotion

I guess you could say I cheated on this one, because I asked my son to pose for me. He wasn't too keen on the idea to start with, so I asked him to show me a "grumpy old man" face, and before long, we were laughing. I also asked for "shocked" and "sad" faces. After deciding on this one, I edited it using Picasa, to convert to black and white, increase the shadows, and add a soft finish to it.
