52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

24. Long Exposure

19 Comments

Recently I attended the f3c conference in Fort Myers, Florida. When not attending workshops or lectures I was spending time with friends exploring the area. One night we had dinner downtown and then explored the area afterwards with our cameras.

This shot was a little different than the others because a public bus drove through the shot while my shutter was open. I liked how the light trails filled the frame yet didn’t cover the sign on the restaurant. Β Pure luck really!

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!
