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 #13

Happy Monday folks!  Welcome back to the challenge.  I hope and pray that you all had a blessed Easter.
This past weekend I shot a wedding with my good friend (and very talented photographer) Jessica.  Since the wedding was over an hour away we had time to talk over challenge ideas and this week's challenge comes courtesy of Jessica.

The Challenge:
Photograph something through the eyes of a cat.

1. You can submit as many pictures as you'd like, no limit.
2. Try to explore an idea, a thought, a sequence of events.
3. No tweaking please.
4. B/W or Colour are welcome

Take the challenge as an opportunity to recognize that your legs don't have to always be used as tripods...  If you're having trouble, just spend a little time watching a cat, it should help give you some ideas!

Have fun!



  1. Hello everyone! I am new...I'm also anxious and want to do my first "post"! I hope I'm doing this right! =)

  2. Wow! The week really flew by! I almost didn't get these done. I hope that you enjoy them!

  3. Here are my entries...

  4. Sorry, I want to add 3 more if I may. I made a shortlist of the photos I liked best, and was feeling a bit iffy on which photo of the same/similar situation is better so I'm going to do two photos of each situation if that's allright.

  5. here are mine this week!

  6. mine's up!

  7. sorry i'm late--I tried to post last night but our internet broke :(
