I recently took a trip with my husband back to some of his old stomping grounds in the Northeast. We knew some of our activities would include visiting a few light houses. What we didn’t plan for was any type of cold weather! While I took this particular photo of the Portland Head Light, I had the hat on my jacket tied tight trying to block the blowing wind from my face. I wasn’t wearing gloves, because who knew I’d need them in June!! My fingers still hurt on my right hand hours later! When I look at this photo I can still feel the wind and cold…

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!

  1. Are you lying in a puddle again? πŸ™‚

  2. Always a good shot. The more the storm the better

  3. Great shot. I had to go find a sweater before I was able to sit down to write this comment. I loved all your lighthouse pics

  4. Beautifully composed, I love the sky.

  5. This is absolutely beautiful! I really want to get here one day and see it for myself!

  6. Beautiful – and the black and white accents the waves. This is not the typical postcard photo that so many of us have and I love it!

  7. The black and white really suits the scene. It does look cold and bleak. Great shot.
