52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

25. Long Shadows


My husband and I had to make a road trip to Orlando today. Anyone who has ridden in a car with me in the passenger seat knows that trip across I-4 is not pleasant. After listening to my gasps and watching me grap the dashboard all the way there, he broke up the ride back with a stop by the Florida Polytechnic University. I was wowed by the beauty of the architecture. So much so that I worked out a photo field trip for my photography club to return as a group for a private tour!

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!
