Big Photo Challenge...

The Big Photo Challenge

This weeks Big Photo Challenge is Summer and I had some great plans for my picture!  My week has been crazy busy with the end of school for me and my boys, a huge yard sale and a spectacular anniversary party for my parents.  I had planned, when all the busy was calm, to take some pictures of my dasies.  I love daisies and that's the first thing I thought of when I thought summer.  However, we've been having dreadful weather...cold and rainy...not at all summer-like.  When I went out last night to photograph my lovely daisies, the rain had pummeled them into something not at all lovely!

And so I chose a favorite picture from last summer.  I took this photo near sunset at Cannon Beach, OR.  I love to use black & white photos on the beach because there is so much contrast and it creates a more interesting composition.  I love the reflection of the light and the shadows of the boys on the wet's one of my favorite pictures!

  1. Ooooh Jen I LOVE this one! The sillhouettes work really well. i missed this week's assignment because I just couldn't get anything together for it especially with the weather being so UNsummery! I'm thinking of running another summer theme later on so you can still get some summer themed pics together. I jst posted the next assignment by the way :)
