This week was all about warmth.  Wednesday was just a perfect day here in North Carolina.  The sun was so warm and the day so beautiful, that I decided to take a walk with my camera and these are just a couple things that I captured while enjoying the day.

This week our photo challenge – WORDS.  When I read this I had so many words go through my head, but next came the part about taking a photo of them.  The week seem to get away from me and today I was thinking what can I do.  These words are still up in my house and they bring comfort to my family.  We just celebrated Christmas and Jesus Christ birthday.  When you read in the Book of Isaiah of the coming King you read these words that you find on the plaque in the photo.  The Bible is a book that has so many words, words that comfort, words that heal, words that bring peace to you, words that show Christ love for you and for me, just to say a few.  This book is my favorite so I thought I would share these words with you.  Now head over to Amy Ames, Holly Springs, NC Photographer, http://www.amyamesphotography.com to see what words she has to share with us all.

This week our buzz word is landscape.  Today as I was driving around town to try and find the perfect spot, this spot came to mind.  I pass the old barn quite often and love it.  It sits on a very busy road but when you look across the landscape at  this peaceful barn, doesn’t it make you wonder what went on there so many years ago.  This farm I am sure was a working farm and I have heard that they plan to tear this beautiful barn down at some point in the near future.  It saddens me to see our landscapes changing so much with less and less green space.  Today was an absolute beautiful day and I really wanted to go over and sit in the grass and read a book, but since this was not my property thought I better drive on.  I hope you enjoy!

Now hurry over to Christa Paustenbaugh, Manassas, VA Christa Paustenbaugh, Manassas, VA  http://thepaustenbaughs.typepad.com (sorry  but my link was not working so please click on her link)  to check out her beautiful  landscape.

I am so excited to get started on this new adventure for 2012.  I started a blog circle last year and was unable to finish.  My goal this year is to finish all 52 weeks – posting a new photo each week with a specific theme.  My blog will link to another blog which will link to another until you have gone full circle.  It is so much fun to follow along and see what everyone photographs.  It is always a challenge to think outside the box but I am determined.  I am looking so forward to getting to know all the other ladies/men that are embarking on this same adventure to learn and grow more in photography.

This week we were to take a photo with NEW being our theme.  This was not too hard for me because for Christmas my sweet hubby gave me a new lens.  I love the NEW Nikon 70-200 2.8 and I am excited to really get out and use it more and more.  This photo is of my younger son Preston and his fiancé, Alex in NYC the week before Christmas.  We went down to Rockefeller Center to take some pictures.   It was 19 degrees and a little breezy.  We were freezing no less – but not too cold to take a photos!  The second one is of Grand Central Station as Steve and I were walking to breakfast one morning.  The sunlight hit the clock perfect so I just had to share.  Love the new lens.

Please continue the blog circle and see what Marianna Marinina, Busto Arsizio, Italy http://www.mariannamarinina.com/blog has for her New adventure.
