2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 21: B&W – AUTOMOBILES

I set out to create this exact shot this week. Then, caught without my camera I happened upon the coolest classic and muscle car show/parade in downtown Santa Maria. Lesson learned, TAKE YOUR CAMERA WITH YOU EVERYWHERE!

The only classic car I’ve ever wanted for myself is a 1967 Mercury Cougar XR7. I see many others, and am not particular to any of the various manufactures. I can enjoy a Camaro as much as a Mustang. I DO like mid-to-late 60’s Mini Coopers, but would always prefer the 67 Cougar.

This is a pair of 67 Cougar Hot Wheels cars. I hope you enjoy the photograph.

2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 18: BUDS

I knew this week I’d target my parents’ backyard. They have numerous plants, mostly fruit and vegetable producing, that I was counting on budding and blooming. Their apple tree has these small pre-apples forming and I hoped they’d be perfect.

2016 PHOTOCHALLENGE, WEEK 17: B&W – STEADFAST

This week’s challenge actually was a difficult one. I always love being pushed a little though. As a Californian, I don’t have much truly old architecture to capture. So I spent much of the week mulling over what is and has been the most steadfast thing in my life. I couldn’t help but eventually realize that the only thing that has ever been the true definition of the word steadfast has been Christ my redeemer. He speaks to me through His Word, the Bible. So here it is…

This capture is of Pastor Mike, leading our Redemption Group. Today was our last meeting, after 9 weeks. Out of respect for all the participants, I simply captured Mike while teaching, and the back of his wife’s head.
