What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Foto Friday: The FAVOR (pretty please?)



Alright. Since I am no professional photographer, in fact, I sorta kinda (really do) stink at taking pictures compared to 90.6% of the rest of the blogging world, Foto Friday tips didn't last long.

The tip jar is empty.

The river runneth dry.

Bone dry.

I have reached my zenith, as it were.

But Foto Friday has been fun and I really don't want it to end. So I am twisting it into something new. Something that helps ME learn, too.

I would like to post photography challenges to myself (and whoever else that may be interested) every Foto Friday and we can work on finding a way to shoot that particular subject throughout the week and we can meet back and then check everyone else out.

I am speaking in the plural because I am PRETENDING there are people out there who would actually be as interested in doing this as I am.

Seems to me it would be a perfect challenge to better myself and push myself out of my own comfort zone. So, even if NO ONE ELSE does it with me, I WILL! (And hopefully, will get something out of it too.)

The only rule will be: the photo needs to be taken within that particular week. If you take a picture from your archives, it isn't exactly CHALLENGING you is it?! ;-)

So here is my favor:

Would EVERYONE that reads this blog shoutout a "theme" or a photo challenge for me? (Or a whole LIST, if you really want to be a darling)

It could be one word: blue

or a whole sentence: Capture motion in wheat

or an idea: intellect

Honestly, the more varied the better. The more challenging the better. The more IDEAS the better.

We will go through the list one at a time and in order (so I don't get the idea to cheat on easy ones).

I will post the first challenge this coming Friday!

Would you please do this for me?

I will allow anonymous commenters on this post, so you don't even have to tell me it is you!!

Thank you kindly.

Edited to Add: Got our first suggestion and by golly I can't wait until NEXT Friday to post the challenge. So I will post it today and we can have all week to work on it. Next Friday I will put up a MckLinky where we can all share our pictures. Yay! (Thanks Elizabeth, for the great idea!)

The challenge is: "Beginnings"
