Ghost Church in south eastern Oklahoma. This abandoned church photo was my favorite form the 52-week challenge.

Whoo-hoo! I have completed the 52-Week Photo Challenge. The challenge for week 51 was special lighting effects. I chose to paint Justin in a long exposure with a laser pointer. For week 52 we were asked to post our favorite image from the year. I chose the Ghost Church from Oklahoma for mine. I hope you might take a moment to just browse all the images I took for the challenge. <a href="http://www.blurb.com/b/5824032-horizontal" cheap oakley sunglasses target=”_blank”>Blurb Book Cover - HorizontalI’ve put them into a Blurb book titled Horizontal: and 51 Other Weekly Photo Challenges from 2014 and you can preview the entire book here. I create these books more for my personal archive than anything but I ordered a few for family and friends (it’s Christmas soon you know). Although nfl jerseys cheap I can’t imagine anyone else buying a hard copy, they are for sale directly from Blurb. And, an eBook is also available for you iPad users. It’s cheap – only $9.99.

The photos are the result of a 52 week photography challenge. The challenge was organized by Michelle Tardiff and Gerald Stephens from Canada. We were a small group of photography enthusiasts and the challenge was well organized and fun.  Meeting the challenge goal by the submission deadline each Sunday night was often a greater challenge than the challenge theme itself. It was my personal goal to never miss a week and never miss a deadline. I met that goal no matter where I was or what was going on that could potentially keep me from succeeding.

One particular example of how close I was to missing a deadline relates to the photo for week 20. The challenge theme was water. I had been in Paducah, KY that week for the AQS show and contest. It’s one of those weeks that is so intense that getting away with a camera and looking for water – or setting up a shot with water – was next to impossible. On the morning of the deadline day we began the long drive home. Driving across Missouri we began approaching thunderstorms. Right at dusk we pulled into our hotel in Blue Springs, MO. As I stepped out of the truck I spied the reflection of a red neon light in a puddle of the parking lot. I got my shot. It’s one of my favorites and I submitted it with just an hour to spare. Click the images to see them full size.

Each week, looking at my world with an artist’s eye and seeking to find design and composition in my surroundings has greatly influenced me as a quilter. For this reason alone I have chosen to lead a class in 2015. I want you to find inspiration for art and capture it too. Not every photo will be a gallery piece, but by just making the effort, you slow down and think like an artist – and you can do it anywhere!  Don’t expect miracles every time. I certainly can’t say I give myself an A for every photo I submitted to my challenge group, but I do feel that I accomplished a significant personal goal of staying dedicated and meeting the challenges – and I learned a lot! I was Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys constantly reminded that beauty is everywhere and it’s possible to be creative anywhere at anytime.

Join me on this journey for 2015. Get all the details here.

  1. Hi Ricky. I am excited that you are starting a photo challenge. I am disappointed because I don’t meet all the requirements, I’m not using the required type of camera and only have photoshop elements. I hope your challenge is a success and that you will offer it next year. Then I can have “all the right stuff!” Here’s to success!

  2. Just signed up for the Challenge. I had an amazing photography morning. Here in Florida we had a dense fog that hung over the lake. I remembered other days like this when I was able to get some dew laced spider webs. I walked about my back yard hedges and found much beauty in dew covered leaves, dew drops on the tips of palm fronds, and several spider webs. I shot for an hour and was never more than 50 feet from my back door. Wow! Am I a lucky girl or what!!! Then when I reached my side yard I saw that my favorite orchid is in bloom. This flower is deep burgundy with yellow orange stamens and looks like velvet.
    All smiles but wet feet.

    • Yay! It’s amazing how beauty is always there if you keep your eyes open!
