Closeups and Still Life Photo Challenge : This month's challenge was Closeups and Still Lifes. I've just begun to learn how to use my new macro lens and have lots to learn–some shots were taken with it and others with my regular lens. So much to learn... so little time! All but one shot was taken at home.

2010 Photo Exhibit : My contribution (finally) to our 2010 Photo Challenge Exhibition. Some of my photos were taken before 2010, others are ones that I did not have an opportunity to post to the group's Challenges.

So, now it's on to February!

People Photo Challenge : It was April's turn to pick the theme for this challenge, which was "People." It could be anything from a portrait, part of a body or any photo with people (or a person in it). I usually take every opportunity to shoot my grandkids, which made my choice of subjects easy, given my surprisingly busy life!

A couple of updates:
1) Maribel has joined SmugMug (yeah!); I hope to have her on our group page soon!
2) I took the liberty of adding a couple extra photos :-) and also changed a few captions...

Good thing nothing in life is–or should be–written in stone!

people-helen : The monthly challenge was people.... "how difficult can that be?", I thought. Well, I found it to be extremely challenging, because the possibilities were endless!!!  I settled on a set of photos taken of French street scenes from our recent Parisian adventure, plus the one picture of Tom and his good friend Chris taken during a trip to Lyon earlier this summer.  I am lucky to have such diverse subject matter content!

people-tom : This month's challenge was a favorite subject for me..."people".   I had great fun with it.....
A "people with dogs" sub-theme runs through some of these, ....but then I ended up with some shots without dogs...so both are included.

What's the Story? Photo Challenge : Hmmm... what kind of story, I wondered? Then a plum fell into my lap! I got an email a couple of weeks ago from my photographer friend, Maribel, about an upcoming event, "Photographers Night at the Aquarium of the Pacific," in Long Beach, CA,  on Sunday evening, September 12, 2010. 

Of course I jumped at the chance! It was a great experience and a whole lot of fun. 

All the photos were taken with available light.

story-tom : Well....this proved to be the most difficult challenge that we've had so far.  Every picture may indeed tell a story, but it is not easy to take such photos.  I can't say that I have done this challenge justice; I even had to steal a photo from Helen to get my 10.  Most are not even self-explanatory...so I've added a bit of text when necessary...   : )
