WEEK 42


AUGUST 3RD - AUGUST 10TH

 

Added an extra day this week. I will be heading out of town for close to 2 weeks, so there will be no posts for a little while. And I have to say that my extra day was very productive. 

One thing I think about each week is what will be the first photo posted. It's not always my absolute favorite, but it does serve a specific purpose. I want it to be the most interesting attention grabbing photo, the first one I post is also the one that shows when I share it to Facebook. So, again--an attention grabber. Anyway, this is all to say that it's usually an easy choice for me- but this week I have 3 that I'm considering and having a hard time deciding which.  But, I ultimately decided to go with this one.

I really like this photo-- my neighbor Selena was riding past on her bike real close to me and I just turned and took a quick shot. I think it might be the sunglasses, but there's a real colorful  summer quality to it.

This was the third one I considered for the first photo-- I like the light here. Burbank Apartments had their annual block party this week, so a nice shot of the building.

And here's some shots of the block party-- I got there toward the end

The light was really nice on my extra day-- here's a few that were all about the light

This shadow and manhole reminded me of a hockey puck and stick-- ok,  maybe I have spent too much time shooting this street.

 Two week break-- see you soon for the home stretch of this project.
