Photo Blogging Challenge (February 2017): Love
Ahh February, where have you gone?
The month of reds and pinks and love is coming to an end. And what a month it was, at least around here. Snow and cold gave way so some of the warmest days in history for February in my area. One day was 73 degrees, which left to the low 30s a couple of days later.
Still, I did take some photos this month. And the way I interpreted this theme was talking about certain things I love. I am sure many people may have done the same idea, but this is how I went with it.
The photos I’ve chosen are ones I truly loved from the month. I hope you enjoy as well. Remember to come back tomorrow for March’s theme!
With all that out of the way, let’s get to my five for the month!
1. This little guy!
Well those of you who are part of this challenge know that Cameron (my nephew/godson) is usually part of my monthly challenge. This was on a warm winter day while snow was still around. I had no problem letting him fire a few snowballs at me for photo purposes!
One thing I love about photography is catching great expressions, especially ones by Cameron.
Over the holidays, I bought a new lens. I was worried I wouldn’t use it enough to justify the cost, but I have used it quite a bit, challenging myself to use it in situations I normally wouldn’t. I used it at a hockey tournament recently a bit, including when the Zamboni was doing its job.
I’m not an artist by any stretch, but I did a “Paint and Sip” night, as it was a fundraiser. I went with my brother and had a pretty solid time. This is my artwork.
5. Action photography
I have always been a sports photography person. Pretty much, any action. I love capturing it and seeing what I can get. Some sports are way faster than others, like hockey. I don’t get to shoot it often, but am glad I had the chance this past weekend.
There are my five and I look forward to seeing what others had this month!
