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: RED


Last weeks FoTo Challenge was RED.

I did not pick up the camera once.

My only real plan was to get some slow-shutter streaks of nighttime car breaklights gong across a bridge. When the slutter is show, the breaks would turn into lines....) I procrastinated until last night...when suddenly Matt appeared a night EARLY.

You can BET I wasn't going to drive 20 minutes away after my love finally came home after a week. SO this week I am being a total loser and raiding my archives and not adding a LICK of newness to the bunch.

Now for those people who actually CHALLENGED themselves....



In order to participate in these Foto Friday challenges, you must take a photo (or several) pertaining to the challenge WITHIN the challenge week and post it/them to your blog. When you do, please link back to this blog {you may use the button if you like} so that perhaps we can get lots of participants! (Because, you know, the more the merrier!) Then simply link to your Foto Friday post with Mr. McLinky here so that we all can visit you and compare notes...


For those of you new to this blog (or to Foto Friday's in general), each Friday we get a new photo challenge to work on for the week and we post our photos the next Friday and link back up here. Whatever your skill level, the goal is to get behind your camera and to begin, as you practice, to view subjects in a different light. To extend yourself and your concepts and ideas. To create ART instead of just snapping a picture. And to do it all while having FUN.

~~~~~An Important Note~~~~~~
I am gathering new suggestions for the photo challenges so if anyone has any great suggestions or has something they would like to cover, leave them in the comments!
I will be making a new list this week.

This week's challenge is..... SIGNS

Hope to see you next Friday!

Those are some seriously awesome photos, Rebecca! I love them all.

Love them all!! Glad your hubby is home--enjoy the weekend.

It just goes to show you have your priorities straight. It also gives us an opportunity to enjoy some great photographs the second time around. So glad for you that Matt got home early!!!

I love your representations of red, especially the hummingbird feeder. I have very fond memories of mixing up "hummingbird soup" as a child and choosing which color to make it each time.

I'm so glad that hubby arrived home EARLY. That is always a wonderful thing. :)

Yes, you're hosting this whole challenge, but family always comes first. **grin**

I'll try to come up with some ideas.

Bee-yu-ti-ful!
I like the strawberries the best, I have been craving them, and ate a whole (gulp) pound the other evening. In 10 minutes.
(Thank-you Lord for California strawberries and grocery store sales)

The hummingbird and flower are my favs this week! :) You always do an amazing job, whether it be today, tomorrow, or last year!
