“A photograph is a click away. A good photograph is a hundred clicks away and a better one, a thousand clicks away”
― Kowtham Kumar K

I have continued on my journey of creating one photograph per week for the 52Frames project.

The challenge for week  nineteen was  to create an image as if using one roll of film.  The challenge consisted of using only 24 clicks of the shutter in order to create the image for the week.  I was excited for this challenge.

Each day, I take a walk with my camera and my dog, Maui, as my companions.  It did not take long for me to find a subject that intrigued me first thing Monday morning.  There was a snake curled up in an interesting shape on the pathway.  Before I knew it, I used more than nine “rolls of film” exploring this snake and another subject during my morning walk.

Much of the week went along the same lines.  What can I say?  I learned photography as a digital photographer.  I explore my subject thoroughly using my camera.  Each day I went out, again, with the intentions of taking only one roll of film.  Each day, except  one, I “failed”.

Here is the image I turned in for Roll of Film on week nineteen.

This was  my submission because it was the only day that week that I managed to use only one “roll of film”.  I am thankful for digital photography!

The challenge for week twenty was Not What You See.  Since I have been staying close to home, my image was created on my morning walking route.  I enjoy combining images, so I combined a swipe of trees with an image of leaves and a spider in its web photographed in the same location that morning.

Week twenty-one’s challenge was symmetry.  I was thrilled to find this colorful turtle on my walk one morning.  It was perfect for another project I was working on at the time.  The shell made a great subject for the weekly challenge, as well.

My next challenge was to photograph something 50 Feet from Home.  Although all of my subjects in this post were found in my neighborhood, I found week twenty- two’s subject in my yard.

Shockingly enough, my image for week twenty-three was also found along my morning walking path.  The challenge was dancing.

I have thoroughly enjoyed these weekly challenges and the opportunity to take a closer look at the sights I am surrounded by on a daily basis.

    Beautiful work, Mary. Love them all! You are so full of inspiration and creativity, thanks so much for sharing. Your “50 feet from home” assignment reminded me of the “Backyard Safari” article I read recently from DPS

      Thank you, Dan! I wish I knew how many clicks I have taken in the past twelve years. Thank you for your kind words and Happy summer!
