Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Rainbow Colors ~

I’m learning so much in the process of participating in these challenges!  Who’s idea was this?

This week’s challenge with Cee is “rainbow colors” with at least four strong colors in the photo.  Here are my submissions:

Rainbow over our back yard

Can’t wait to take a look at what everyone else has posted!  Thanks, Cee!

Till next time, TTFN!  Tamara Eckstadt

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Black & White or Sepia ~

Well, this week’s challenge was certainly a challenge for me!  I’ve never taken any photos in black and white, as this is all still very new to me.  I’ve spent the past few days really trying to get to know my camera, and what it can do for me… rather than just pointing it and shooting.  Here’s a few I came up with:

Stately looking building near downtown Syracuse, NY

If you take a close look at the above two murals, they remind you of something, don’t they?  They’re painted in black and white on the side of a very non-descript building a few blocks from where I work.  Not the best part of town to be getting out in the middle of the street and taking photos, but I just found it so interesting.

What do you think?

Next week, red, white or red & white!

Until then… TTFN!    Tamara Eckstadt ~
