30 Day Photo Challenge & Link Up {Days 9 - 15}

While a little bit late to the game, I'm back today with week three of the 30 Day Photo Challenge!

So far, we've shared days 1-7 and days 8-14 of the photo challenge. There have been sooo many beautiful pictures shared by all of you so far, so thank you for participating and linking up! Today I'm headed down the challenge list to share days 15- 19. This week was a lot of fun, but certainly had some challenging shots in it. Wanna see?

Day 15: since Tucker got to be the start of last week's photos, I thought Maggie deserved a turn this week! Her treeing walker coon hound silhouette is so pretty. And very akin to Goofy. Same diff.

Day 16: Ahh, my favorite shot. Even though it's blurry, yes. Before last week, I didn't know what a long exposure was. But nowwww, thanks to this handy dandy photo challenge, I learned that a long exposure shot is basically where you take a photo with a very long shutter duration. The effect is that it sharply captures stationary objects while holding and blurring the moving object. Or in my case, blurring it all. I opted for a 4 second shutter speed and then hit the streets to take pictures of my neighbors' cars. I'm sure they thought I was a stalker, but I kind of like my photo attempt at the long exposure! What I later learned is that I need a tripod to help me keep the stationary objects in the background from also getting blurry. I'm just happy (at this point) that I got the long exposure part down. Oh well, a good first attempt!

Day 17: a telephone pole + beautiful sunset...
I think I'll call this the "Dichotomy of the Technology Age." Deep.

Day 18: I cheated. Those aren't my shoes. They belong to my friend Ashley, who wore them at her wedding here. But I love this pictures so I had to share again!

Day 19: I think my neighbor's tree speaks for itself! Hello, gorgeous.
