I love the topic for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge! Cheri Lucas Rowland is asking for us to, “consider the walls you’ve erected and decorated, the halls you walk down each day, or the exteriors you’ve ignored or neglected. What do these walls reveal about a place, people, or you?” So, let’s hit the wall running!

An artistic wall in Murphys, California.

Michelle over at WordPress has chosen the color orange to be the focus of this week’s photo challenge. She says, “This week, share a group of photos where orange is either the dominant color, or provides a bold highlight. Shoot for at least three photos, and look for different shades — bright neons, deep rusts, delicate peaches.” So, here we go into my orange world!

Up close to this flower are many orange folds, making it appear as if it is a skirt!

Krista, over at WordPress has chosen “Reward” as this week’s challenge topic! She says, “Reward is filthy with possibility: it could be your third grader’s beaming smile after reading her first chapter book, a steaming mug of chicken soup after a long run in the cold, a photo of your brand-new baby — your reward for patience during nine months of construction, or your extended family gathered around the dinner table.” Here are my rewards:

A calving glacier splashes into the water after a long wait…

The splash!

A hike takes me to a point where I can view the awesome Yosemite Valley…

This week the topic for the WordPress Photo Challenge is the rule of thirds. Here is what Jen H. has to say: “The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image. If you focus closely on your subject and use a wide aperture, your photograph’s background will also be beautifully blurred in that blank space. The blurred area behind your focal point is referred to as bokeh, and when executed well, it adds depth and artistry to an otherwise simplistic photograph.” Here is my go at The Rule of Thirds!
