Mandy and I certainly share a love of photography and we’re proud to present our blog as a product of our hobby, but the idea certainly isn’t unique to us. It so happens that 500px.com, a popular photo storage, discovery, and marketplace site also holds weekly photo theme contests on their blog. It also happens that last week’s theme was “In Flight”, very similar to our third week topic. On a whim, I decided to submit my photo to their contest, and much to my delight, they chose it as one of their winners! It’s fun to see a part of sheanditakepictures make it deeper out onto the web for others to enjoy.
Mandy and I met just over a year ago. In that year, we spent a lot of time together talking about, observing, and (best of all) practicing photography. It was a simple hobby that gave us more incentive to spend time together, travel, and observe the life around us in a fresh light.
On the evening of our anniversary, and with the idea of new year’s resolutions fresh in mind, Mandy offered a challenge to us both — we would take turns choosing topics, and we would each take a weekly photo based on those topics. This would push us to try new techniques, learn from each other, and continue to engage in our favorite shared hobby.
This blog is our way of sharing. Visit weekly to see one topic and one photo from each of us.
Without further adieu, I present our first theme, chosen by Mandy:
