The Purpose, the Journey, and the Fun along the way

Here we are, two moms who love our cameras and miss our college art classes and colleagues. With a family it can be difficult to find time for the creative process. Emily and I are using this blog as a way to have fun, work on our photography, keep each other accountable, and be creative!

Each Monday one of us will post a challenge for us both to complete and post a response to by Friday that week. Over the weekend, if time permits each of us will also critique the other's work.

We hope to use this blog as a way to grow together as photographers as we continue to grow as mothers.

If you happen to stumble upon our blog, and want to join in, feel free! Just post your response, with a link to your photos in the MckLinky link for that week. Challenges stay open for three weeks after they are posted.

Photo Challenge #7 Macro Challenge

Good Morning!

This week's challenge was actually inspired by Erin Jo's anatomy photos from 2 challenges ago.
Take a series of photos (2-5) of objects/people REALLY up close (macro)- try to make it so that we can't figure out what it is right away- but keep it in focus so we have a clear idea of color/texture/shape. Please no tweeking for this challenge. Oh, and don't give away what the objects are- let us guess!



  1. here are Steve's (Em's Dad) photos- more will go up as the week goes along

  2. Hi!

    I've been looking at all of your past pictures and I am REALLY excited to participate. I have no real experience with photography, so I welcome your critiques and am eager to learn.

    Here are my pictures. The first 5 are the chosen ones for the challenge. I hope you enjoy!
