perspectives photo challenge :: around town ::

Perspective

Every Friday, Maria-Isabel of Agape Love DesignsNatalie of When Shutters Click and I are happy to host an exciting photography challenge!

The concept is simple.
Each week we will choose a "theme" and on Friday, we ask that everyone link up {only} 3 photos representing that theme.  It's all about perspective & interpretation!

{If you don't have a blog, you can link to a flickr account, facebook album, etc. We just want to see your photos!!}

This week's theme is
AROUND TOWN

war memorial
Ruby on a hill near the town's water tower
bike path

I like to take brand new photos for these linkup prompts...and I left these to the very last minute!
The kids and I took a quick tour of the town and grabbed a few shots for this week's challenge!

Now it's your turn!
Grab a button a spread the word & don't forget to follow your hosts!

Feel free to tweet using hash tags #Perspectives or #PerspectivesPhotoChallenge
as well as tag @mariagridley, @Mom2MandR, and @shuttersclick.

If you can't link up this week, that's okay!

{how can I pick just 5!?}

In no particular order, these are my top 5

A big thank you to this adorable family for letting me take Preston's 1 year old portraits!  It was a great experience, and I couldn't have asked for a happier kid!!

color


Linking up again this week for The Paper Mama's photo challenge. This week's prompt is "color." 
I had the perfect shot of my daughter & me coloring from a few weeks ago that I thought would compliment the theme!
