Photography Challenge Week #1

Thanks to one of the awesome link parties I frequent each week, I happened upon A Step in the Journey, an awesome blog by Laura Beth.
I was just in time to find out about her fabulous new photography challenge, which I signed up for sharpish!

I used to love photography and even now I rarely go out without my camera in my bag. It's only a little compact camera (Casio Exilim Z850)  but it has a whole range of features including the option to go entirely manual. Yay!

Week #1 of this challenge is 'Self Portrait'.

Here's mine:

As you can see, I decided to go for something a little different! It was a lovely sunny day and I was relaxing a little with a post-lunch cup of tea, watching Alfie (one of my feline friends) rolling around in the sun.

I'd hoped that the sun would be in a position to stretch and exaggerate my shadow a little but no such luck--and within five minutes the sun had disappeared behind a mass of ominous-looking clouds! That's British weather for you!

Looking forward to next week's challenge and hoping my camera skills will improve over the coming weeks--it's been way too long since I took anything more with my camera than snapshots!


  1. Cute Idea :)

    You can check out my shot at
    Don't worry, I'm not a professional... yet :)

  2. AwEsOmE idea!! Glad I wasn't the only one to step outside the box a little. :) Hope your sun comes back!

  3. You really DID get creative with this pic!! I love the shadow idea!!

    NIce work!

  4. So creative. Nice job. I dreaded this week's assignment because I'm not photogenic,...if only I was as smart as you. :)

  5. Loving the creativeness! Thanks for linking up :)

  6. Love the shadow idea! I look forward to seeing more of your work throughout the challenge.

  7. I love it, It's a great shot. I'd thought about doing a neat shadow shot too, but all I had was my iphone so I opted for something different.


Reading all your sweet comments makes me happy! :) I appreciate each and every one and try to reply to all that I can!
