52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

Blogger luncheon at the Half Shell


Thanks to all of you who made it to our blogger luncheon today at the Half Shell Oyster Bar! We were so happy to put faces to some of the bloggers we hadn’t met before.  I know I learned some things about those we HAD met before!

For those who couldn’t join us we look forward to our next get together and hope you can come. For those who are blogging from the far corners let us assure you that we are all enjoying your posts immensely! We all agree that its great fun to see how others are interpreting the different themes.

Those who attended all agree that we should come up with another 52 themes for next year. So please feel free to send your theme suggestions to Mary Nell, Patricia or myself. Remember that our 52 weeks will end at the end of July. If any of you have other photographer friends who you think would like to join us in August for a new batch of themes please let us know their contact info and we will be sure they know what the next themes are. 

Until next time… 🙂Image

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!
