recently, i found a photography challenge called share the shot. it is a challenge open to anyone of any skill level and does not require any kind of experience or talent-just the ability to take a picture. and the great thing about this-no fancy camera is needed. i have decided to take amy(hostess with the mostest-she blogs at she wears many hats) up on her challenge and i pulled out my camera, a canon rebel t1i.
the whole point of the challenge was for amy to get back to taking pictures that she "wanted" to take rather than those she "had" to take. i totally get it. for me, this will be an opportunity to learn how to use all of the functions of my camera as well as a chance to get better at taking photos. so the first assignment-blue. that's right, blue. what that means is just take a photo that is focused on something blue. all i had to do was look around, i saw lots of blue stuff without ever leaving the confines of my own home and garden.

some cookbooks on my shelf-so many different shades of blue and turquoise

check out all of the participants on amy's blog, she wears many hats. thanks for a fun afternoon amy! can't wait for the next assignment-it's theme is yellow and for fun, i used my cell phone as well as my camera.
