Bubbles

Welcome to our second photo challenge “Bubbles”

If you missed last week’s challange, you can find it here!

A Charming Heart’s Shot:

Unfortunately  this was not the shot that I had intended this week for our photo challenge. I had envisioned my cat interacting and playing with the bubbles in the photograph…he was a cranky model instead. I hope to redo this photograph again at another time. Oh well Ce la vie!

Chasing Now‘s Shot:

Bubble Collage

This photo did not come out at all how I intended. I just might have to reshoot this one! The busyness of life sometimes gets in the way and a deadline comes up way too fast. My original idea was inspired by the bubbles in Cinderella in the scene when she scrubs the floor, which is why they are different colors. Since I was unable to shoot the photo the way I wanted, I composited a bunch of old photos together to create an imaginative little daydreamer scene. The bright side of this challenge is I learned how to make bubbles in Photoshop!

Photo Challenge

My friend Nikki and I have very different styles when it comes to photography (and probably everything else from clothes to decorating haha!). I use sculptures and creatures that I hand make and tend to focus on animals and nature. Nikki is a people photographer — high school seniors, families, kids, you get the idea. We thought it would be fun to do a photo challenge to see how different our approaches to the same subject would turn out.

Our first post will be on Monday November 10th and we will post biweekly on both our blogs on Mondays after that. Want to join in? We will announce the upcoming subject the same day we post our photos. Just use the hashtag #AlliAndNikki and we can see your photos on Instagram.

Here are all the places to follow us along on our photo challenge adventure:

Last week was quite difficult, very stressful, and filled with sadness. I took this photo over the summer, and had every intention of posting it, but never got around to it. I was in such a peaceful place (physically and emotionally) when I shot this. Looking at this now, it just seems appropriate for going into this week. It is a good reminder that I WILL find peace within myself again even through this sadness and chaos. Even in cool dark waters, There are rays of sunshine and peaceful tiny flowers blooming :)

Beep Boop Beep!

Just popping in here real quick to share a new photo. It was inspired by my husband. He’s taking classes as an engineer and has built some robots! I’ve been trying to find a way to mix my creatures and my nature photography, and I think I may be getting closer to creating the art that I would like :)

Now it is off to some relaxing before I head back into the crazy work week ;)  Have a good day everyone!
