52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

5. Winning


Last weekend I was one of the photographers hired to photograph runners in the Color Me Rad 5K in Tampa. It was sooooo much fun! I took photos of the runners both before and after they ran the race. For anyone not familiar with Color Me Rad, they color bomb the runners before and during the race. The runners spend a lot of time bombing each other as well. By the time they finish they look like brightly colored rainbows. The energy was amazing!  I manned the BLUE booth! I thought I’d share a few of my favorites. The first photo is of the first girl to cross the finish line…. “The Winner!”  ImageImageImageImageImageImage

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!
