A Photo a Week Challenge: Funny Signs


I used to laugh at memes of ill-translated signs on Pinterest. It was something to boost my moods though I never thought I’d encounter such signs until I took a trip to China in 2017.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Ancient


When I saw the topic for this challenge, my memory almost immediately took me to this picture. This was a church long ago, back when Portuguese dominated this town, Macau, in China. Sadly, it was burn down and all that was left was this wall.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Natural Lighting


Natural lighting is how I take my photos. I didn’t have a flash set up on my old mirrorless camera and became so used to it that even though my new DSLR has a flash built-in, I never use it.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Reflection


I love water reflections, especially on a sunny day. This was taken at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone when I went there last week. I saw this tree and thought it was in the wrong place but at the same time, it does look pretty cool.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Weathered


I was going over the photos on my phone and came across this photo which I took Mid-May when I went on my road trip. I think it fits the description of weathered since this landscape is crafted by millions of years of wind erosion.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Preparation


Though it’s a little blurry, I think this photo fits this week’s topic of Preparation. Isn’t this little guy just the cutest? He’s about to jump to try to catch the bubble.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Unexpected


I spent this past week traveling and on the first day of my road trip, while I was walking along the Fremont River in Capitol Reef National Park, I spotted something moving in the trees. At first glance, I thought it was an owl. I have no idea what made me think of that. I was about to point and whisper-shout, “Owl,” when I realized it was just an ordinary fatty of a squirrel.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Open


There was a wind storm last week – 70 mile-per-hour gusts blowing past the protective mountain ranges. It made my Wednesday drive to work a bit treacherous yet interesting at the same time.

A Photo a Week Challenge: All About the Scenery


It’s been a while since I participated in this challenge. This week’s theme is All About the Scenery and I came up with these two photos which are sort of a continuation from this post as both were taken during my solo trip to Capital Reef National Park in 2018.

I think this photo is a wonderful example of opposite weather. Continue reading “A Photo a Week Challenge: Opposite Weather”

A Photo a Week Challenge: Three of a Kind


After re-reading the challenge rule, I realized it’s a different “three of a kind” – the kind where I’m photographing an object in three different angles, not the three of the same object three of a kind. Continue reading “A Photo a Week Challenge: Three of a Kind”

A Photo a Week Challenge: Depth of Field


It’s been a while since I last took macro photos and yesterday, I finally got to take some when I visited some ponds in the next town over. The ponds were beautiful but frozen. I’ll have to go back when it thaws. I will post some of the landscapes I took in another post.
