52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

19. Poverty and/or Wealth

2 Comments

It’s getting down to the wire. My 52 Week Challenge will be ending the last week of July. A couple of the remaining themes I have saved intentionally. Others are because I am trying to find something that isn’t to similar to what others have posted. This post is an example of a shift in perception to find my photo.

I thought the perfect place to find a photo for this theme was downtown Sarasota. The wealth can be extreme there as can the poverty. I was in a search of a photo showing them side by side. The extreme I had pictured prior to my trip was no where to be found and I was feeling a bit frustrated. Then this HUGE yacht docked at Marina Jack’s caught my eye. I thought wow, there is wealth for sure. But I thought hmmm, isn’t any boat docked at a marina a representation of wealth? For someone with NO boat it is… but to the guy docked right next to the huge yacht it might not feel that way. It’s all about perception isn’t it?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!
