Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Pets

If its pet challenge week it can only mean one thing…. ITS OUR BIRTHDAY! Yep, we turn 6 this week and its a tradition to do our very first challenge we did all those years ago.

I want to recognize a fellow blogger who besides myself has only missed 2 or 3 challenges in 6 years… take a bow Marianne aka. 3 collie at Northview Dairy. She has been a good blogger friend since I first started blogging at my other blog “Thoughts from the Road” and here at “Sunday Stills”

I also want to thank everyone who participates in my silly challenges each week and its been fun and I hope I can keep it going another 6 years.. :-)

Since I don’t have any real pets I’m using a pic I took over the Thanksgiving day holiday of my mom’s pooch Harley. My mom is DiBear at her blog “Retired and Living it”

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: The Long and Winding Road

Anyone get that I’m doing challenges from some great songs? This week its all about roads, paved or unpaved. I live on paved roads so when I get home for some off time I prefer the unpaved forest roads… :-)

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Light my Fire

Besides my favorite Doors song this challenge is all about fire, either man made or natural. To make this a true challenge, no sun pics. I know its a giant ball of fire but this is about flames..:-)

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Shallow Depth of Field

What is a Shallow Depth of Field (DOF)? Well its basically having your subject in focus in the foreground and blurring out the background. I myself like a shallow DOF when photographing flowers or bugs. Sometimes you can get the effect by pan shooting on a moving subject like a car or motorcycle. To achieve a shallow DOF with a DSLR just set the F-Stop to the lowest setting, my Sigma 105mm Macro goes down to a F2.3 setting. See what ya’ll can come up with for this weeks challenge.. :-)
