There are times when a month gets away from you, that’s for sure.
October was one of them. I had plans for something else to be posted today (those coming for the giveaway … my apologies – that will be Wednesday now), and then had a slap on the head and realized it was October 31! That meant the Photo Blogging Challenge!
This should have been done a long time ago and scheduled. I had the photos I wanted a long time back. My only issue was bringing it down to five as I had a bunch I wanted to use!
Alas, I found a pretty good mix of photos and I think I have it covered pretty well. Water is one that can really be interpreted in different ways, so I’ll look forward to getting time to visit everybody’s posts to see what they came up with.
Anyway, allow me to move this forward. I hope everybody has a great Halloween!
Here are my five photos for this month!
1. If everybody had an ocean …
When visiting the Jersey Shore earlier this month, people were out surfing. Originally, I was going to make this a major part of the challenge, but decided to pair it back to one or two photos. This one beat out another photo I wanted to use… but there was just something about this image I really liked.
2. … surfin’ USA!
Of the action shots I snapped with surfing, this was one of my favorites. Surf’s up, dude!
3. Flushing the hydrants
Leaving work one day, I saw this and though … this is perfect!
4. Butterfly stroke
Went to a swim meet for some family and … well, here’s Emily winning her event.
Cameron returns to the challenge this month. He was at a soccer camp for tykes and needed a drink of some refreshing H2O!
There are my five and I look forward to seeing what others had this month!
