Nurture Photography - Yellow/Easter

I had big intentions.  I always do!  We didn't do a big Easter this year.  The older kids are, well... older and the youngest is still young enough that I don't have to go all out crazy cakes for holidays.  So not a big picture taking opportunity.

Yellow.   ...   ...   ...  Hmmmm...

I know the calendar says it's Spring, but up until just this week, it was still steadfastedly (wait... is that even a word?!) Winter in Kentucky.  I've done a couple of yellow photo challenges before.  One in Summer, and one in Autumn.  They were definitely a challenge for me then and that was no different this time around.  Even if it is a different season!

I realized I had to get creative.  Look at it differently.


I'll admit that I probably should have looked harder.  There were some daffodils blooming across the street, but I felt like if I used them I was copping out.  I've really neglected my camera and photography for a while.  I'm hoping by pushing myself to accomplish even a mediocre photo will help me to become more motivated in the future.

  1. Christine, I know what you mean by it being challenging. I have to figure out what to do for this weeks prompt and so far I'm coming up empty...
    Like your idea though. Where in KY are you. My best friend lives in Lexington. :)

    1. I'm struggling too! It's raining here today and I'm trying to figure out how I can work a "splash" into photos today.

      I live in South central Kentucky, around the Bowling Green area.

      I said to myself, "You have fallen so far. You are taking a photo of a broom." Haha!

  3. Hi Christine, I love your creative mind - your picture has this lovely athmosphere of simplicity and real authenticity! I love captures of everyday life - learning to see the moments as they unfold ... hoping to carry a camera or a phone to "click" :-)

  4. I'll never forget your road shot from the summer challenge, pregnant and all. That one rocked! So glad you have decided to join us again. These challenges are great but definitely challenging and I love that they force me to think outside the box. Which is what you've done here. Way to get creative! Can't wait to see what you come up with for turquoise/splash (which btw starts tomorrow). That one really had me stuck! Have a great weekend!

  5. Christine, I love your take on yellow!! It just happened that I was in a different state taking photos and they had a lovely landscaped areas of flowers. I have already started to think about the next challenge. This one will be harder for me to come up with.
