Weekly Photo Challenge
I’m a little for last week’s weekly photo challenge. The challenge is relic which is something surviving from the past. These are photos of what remains from a brick building in downtown Tacoma. I like how you can see a modern building in the background. I included a color and black & white photo.
I’m a tad late for the weekly photo challenge for between. When I was on a trip to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, I discovered Kung Fu Pizza that served Chinese and pizza. I was very excited, because I have difficulty making choices and this restaurant I could have two cuisine choices. Although there was a problem because I then couldn’t decide between pizza or Chinese. There was actually a Chinese pizza, so I could have both worlds. I finally picked from the Chinese menu.
This week photo challenge is highlighting something extra in a photo. This ‘extra’ element could be a person, color, or something unexpected. I picked this photo of a barber shop spiral with a Seahawk on top. I only took this photo because of the Seahawk. If you live in the Seattle or Pacific Northwest region you know exactly what this small Seahawk at the barber shop shows. Seattle Seahawk’s Super Bowl victory!
This week’s photo challenge is room. It can mean a physical space, movement, comfort, room to grow, etc. I decided to show a room before and after of my sister’s recent wedding. It shows how festive and lively the room became.
This week’s photo challenge is a photo that captures a split second story with street photography. Last night, I attended the musical ‘Once’ in Seattle. It was a very fun, lively, and beautiful production. I may have to purchase the music. These photos capture the split seconds before with excitement and satisfaction at the end.
This week’s photo challenge is twist. It can be a new ‘spin’ on an every day topic or event. I decided to stick with twist in the literal sense with a physical twist in structure. These photos are of a staircase that twists into a water foundation. I love how the black & white captures the twist.

This week’s photo challenge is ‘one’ to focus on one element. The rainbow stretching across the grey clouds is the one focus in this photo.
This week’s photo challenge focuses on lines and patterns. I love to photograph geometric shapes and patterns that we see everyday. Here are some random photographs I took of walkways, sidewalks, and paths we step across each day but may not notice the details. The simple lines create beauty.

This week’s photo challenge theme is ‘inside’. I decided the inside subject would be myself. I attended my first Seattle Mariner‘s baseball game this summer. (I think they won because I was there.) I took a photo sitting inside the giant mitt outside the stadium. Another photo shows me inside a llama. Why? I went to a ‘knit and pitch’ event at the game. There was yarn and other supplies to buy. I bought nothing knitting related, instead just tons of baseball food that got me a little sick. I also included photos inside the stadium.

I realize I’m a week late for this photo challenge, but I didn’t have time to post it. Here are some photos of my dog, George, enjoying the beach at Kalaloch in Washington. Normally, he doesn’t like water but he kept walking out to play in the waves.

I know this was last week’s challenge, but I’ve been busy and couldn’t resist showing this beautiful ‘golden hour’. I took the photo along Washington State’s ocean coast during the 4th of July weekend.
I love to photograph designs, shapes, and patterns so I’m excited about this week’s photo challenge: pattern. I decided to focus upon daily aspects that we may not notice. Everyone has seen the fancy designs and patterns that surround trees, lamp posts, or similar objects. I also included a shadow pattern of a staircase rail.
Here’s a second inspiration for the weekly photo challenge culture. I saw this woman with her dog dressed in hot pink and thought it looked cute and humorous at the same time. She’s stylish and well dressed ready to go anywhere with her chic dog. I want to know more about this woman and where she’s taking her dog. It’s amazing how people relate to their pets in our culture. In this case the dog is more of an accessory.

I’m a little late with this week’s photo challenge: culture. I struggled with this theme, since I always view culture as foreign from a different country. I decided to focus upon how our daily culture has gradually changed with technology. The reserved parking spot for hybrid or electric cars shows how our culture’s transportation has slowly changed. The empty phone booth displays how most now carry a cell phone.
