Below are the ones I felt were the favorites for actually entering into the contest and I have a ton more that I just really like. I am really into that peacock. I started shooting super … Read More

Week 52 – CYOA, Choose Your Own Adventure

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “CYOA”, or “Choose Your Own Adventure”. Since I was in the land of beautiful things, aka California I decided to just let this one happen organically and not think about it too much. My camera is always by my side so I knew I’d come across something beautiful. And one day … Read More

Week 51 – Fire

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “Fire”. I thought it was going to be a challenge to keep up with the project while I was out visiting my family in San Diego, but it turns out that I got the perfect chance! We had a fire in the pit in the backyard on Christmas Eve and made … Read More

Week 50 – Flash Photography, You Must Use a Flash!

This week’s LensProtoGo theme for the 52 Week Project was “Flash Photography, You Must Use a Flash!” which is something that is not daunting to me. Once I learned how to properly use one, I just can’t seem to stop using it. Flash can really enhance a photo, dramatize the scene or even properly light it…and then you can always … Read More

Week 49 – Family

This week’s LensProtoGo 52 Week Project theme was “Family”. Not wanting to take pictures of myself or anymore pictures of my dogs for the sake of overkill, I used a shot from some family portraits I got to shoot over the weekend. They were perfect and precious and the family was so relaxed and just enjoying each others company. That’s … Read More

Week 48 – Winter

This week’s LensProtoGo theme for the 52 Week Project was “winter”. The trouble with that is, there are not any real signs of winter in South Carolina. At least not what I’m used to seeing from growing up in Maryland. The trees are mostly pines and palm trees, the grass turns brown…and that’s about the only indication I can see. … Read More

Week 47 – Feeling Nostalgic

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “feeling nostalgic”. I thought of my storage room in my house, filled with bins of stuff from my childhood that I just can’t seem to let go of. And I was thinking of all the things that might make for a good photograph. And then I thought of my hundreds of … Read More

Week 46 – Symmetry

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo 52 Week Project is “symmetry”. While walking around downtown Charleston, I looked for symmetry, which in architecture, is seemingly everywhere. I found a great example of symmetry at the historic Laurens-Rutledge house on Broad Street in Charleston, SC. I made it black and white to simplify the lines.   

Week 44 – Spooky

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “spooky”. Being Halloween, I could of gone for something like Halloween decorations, but I decided to try my hand at capturing a storm that happened during the week. It was the kind of storm where the lightening lights up the whole sky. So I just safely stayed inside the house, opened … Read More

Week 42 – Antique

This wee’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “Antique”. There is definitely an abundance of “antique” in Charleston. So I figured I’d just walk around downtown one day after work and wait for something to strike me. I tried taking some pics of antiques/antique shops, but then I remembered a painting on the side of a building that I … Read More
