52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

A-2 Circles


For the theme Circles I decided to go with a photo I took of round Chinese lanterns along with a photo of the shadows they cast on the sidewalk below them.

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. Oh, clever and effective, Mindy. 🙂

  2. This just goes to show you that photographing something called Zoominations (Illuminations at the Zoo) can be done well before the sun sets. Good shadows!

  3. I wouldn’t have picked up on the shadows, you are always seeing things that many of us overlook – great work.
    I was lucky enough to see this show at night, it was amazing. There were a few pieces that I liked better in the daylight but overall it needs to be seen at night.

  4. Nicely done using the shadows with the cross lines.

  5. I’m like Chris, I never would have thought to look down for the shadows. They do create some patterns with the lines.

  6. Very cool shadow pattern you captured Mindy! Love it!

  7. I like it. I like it a lot. Very clever.
