PBC (October 2014): Photographer’s choice
It’s already the end of October.
Where did the month go? Heck, where did the year go?
Baseball season is now officially over and the fall seems to be truly showing its colors – that is in regard to the weather, not just the color on the trees (for those who still have leaves on said trees). High school football in this area is winding down and many schools are already starting to peer toward winter sports.
And here we are with another month of photos in the challenge.
This month’s challenge was photographer’s choice, which I hope means a very cool selection of images and maybe a few extra people joining us for this challenge.
For me, I actually took some photos with my real DSLR this month. But, in the end, I’ve decided to go with five images taken with my iPhone.
And why is that, you may ask?
It’s simple. I just don’t use my DSLR as much as I used to. I use a true camera for work quite often (and those photos won’t show up here), so I use the iPhone to chronicle my life, whether it be uploading photos to Instagram or Facebook or something else. It’s a way to still take pretty good photos without having to lug equipment around.
So this month, my choices are ones I took via the iPhone and all have a story to share.
Without further ado, allow me to share my five for the month of October.
1. Say cheese!
This was one cool spot for a photo booth … kind of. This is a wash area, in between the male and female bathrooms, at a eatery in New York City. Yeah, I’m totally serious, too. We waited somebody using it when we arrived, and then we took ours. Five minutes of processing and we got our photos. The kicker was, so many people went by but didn’t even seem to bat an eye. I have a feeling this happens often enough here.
2. Happy Cam!
Of course he’s happy! He’s a little ham for the camera! All dressed up at a soccer game for the cool weather. And look at those teeth coming in!
This is one of the last shots I took of my cat, Molson. This was after she came home from the vet and seemed like she might have been getting slightly better. She was napping and eyeballing me, much like she always did when I was around her with a camera. We lost her a few days later, unfortunately, and she’ll be highly missed.
4. The Ocean
I had the chance this month to take my yearly trip to the Jersey Shore. It was a nice trip, though I had a lot on my mind that weekend. One day was really nice weather, so it was nice to just stand on the beach and let my feet sink in the sand and have the water come around my ankles.
I think this photo speaks for itself…
That’s my five for the month. And, now it’s your turn.
If you took part this month, make sure you link up below. And for those who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment and visit so we can continue to grow this challenge. Don’t forget, too, to come back tomorrow, Friday, October 31 and see the theme for November! NOTE: I set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
