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 #18

I've been toying with an idea for a series of challenges, but since the idea isn't completely worked out in my head I thought I'd do something a little different. This morning I woke up with a Sesame Street song in my head, one I'm sure we are all familiar with.  It goes something like this," 12345-6789,10-11,12"

This week's challenge is to photograph numbers 1-7 (my father always make us do things in prime numbers when I was a child, since I thought 12 photos would be overwhelming we'll just stick with 7).

1.) 7 photos total (If you feel ambitious go ahead and do all 12), one photo for each number.
2.) your photos can either represent the number or have the actual number in letters or numbers.
3.) B/W or Colour
4.) Tweaking is allowed.
5.) Photos should be submitted  by either Friday, May 29 or Sat. May 30
5.) Have Fun!


  1. I am early but I am not sure how much time I will have on Friday or Saturday to post.

    Katie N:

  2. I am early this week! Here are mine. Enjoy!

  3. Mine are the first 8 on my flickr account - unfortunately something's gone haywire with this website and I can't copy/paste links onto this!!

    As a result it'll start with the bonus photo first, which is simply for everyone's amusement and then it works its way down from 7 to 1.

  4. Yay! Friday Night and I'm done!

  5. Mine will be finished Saturday night....
    it won't let me cut and paste the link, either.
