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

Last week I challenged you to find some wind and capture it. Did ya? If not, no worries-I still want to see your favorite photo of the week!

Here are mine:

Now let's see YOUR photos for the week!

I'll be honest with you, I have been having a HARD time coming up with challenges each week, especially ones that I am excited about. So when I saw this on Pinterest i knew it would be *just right* if I scratched the "day" and made them instead "weekly" challenges. I could have just written down the list, but golly she made such a fabulous graphic I had to admire it. So here they are for reference. I am super excited about the challenges now...amazing what a bit of objectivity can do for a person.

So for the record: if you are up to it~ this coming weeks challenge will be SELF PORTRAIT. Of course, any favorite photo would be a welcome contribution. That goes without saying.

See you then!

*** I can't believe it but I forgot to post my favorites from last week...AGAIN! Boy, I need to get my act together! ***

Here are my favorites of last week:

Winner #1: Barb from My Journey~For His Glory

I for one think it is really amazing how this internet thing allows me to live vicariously through so many different peoples' lives. Not only was this a wonderfully interesting shot of a culture far different than mine, but it was well made: the subject was slightly off center, the rice was caught mid-throw, the subject was crisp and clear and the exposure was perfect (which is challenging to do with sunhats/shade among bright light.) Not to mention how difficult it can be to take a picture of someone we don't know. Kudos to Barb (it was her FIRST contribution too! Let's hope we see more of her!)

Winner #2: Dana from A NibNabit Life

This photograph is really well done as well. I love it for its artistic flare. The rule of thirds was implemented perfectly and I love the hard iron contrasting with the tender plant. It is a job well done when a photograph speaks to you, and this one did to me.

Well done everyone!
