 Sue at Photowannabe put out a challenge, so for today I am stepping out of my comfort zone and trying to match some of my photos with the challenge. 

In no particular order here are my attempts.

The sunrise is creating " Horizontal " lines in the sky.



Raindrops at the tips of the pine needles look best in " Marco".



A pot of Mums creates a  " Reflection " in a lens ball.



These White Birch trees have an interesting  " Pattern" on their trunks and make a display of " Vertical " lines as well.



This close-up of a Passionflower could also qualify for a " Macro", but it also "Fills The Frame".



I'm not sure if this fits exactly, but this bright leaf against a dark background creates a " Contrasting" color.



The trees make a nice "Frame" for the sunrise.



This little trio of mementos in my living room display the color " Green".
As an aside, the lamp belonged to my husband’s grandparents.



More "Colors". This time red, blue yellow and green.
This is a plastic canvas coaster I made many years ago.




The tiny beads of my diamond painting project give us the "round" shape.
 


Finally, the "Texture" of the top I am wearing today.


I don't know if I will try something like this again, but occasionally itis good to be pushed a little.this may be just what we need to become more aware of the details of life around us.

I really like it! Birch trees are always my favorite, but today I love the big colorful leaf, and the mum...a tiny mum inside a bigger one. What a gorgeous photo!

I think every single one of yours was perfect for the category. It has been many years since I have done anything like this. Since I don't use a camera anymore the cell doesn't lend itself to the things like this. I have become not a photographer but just a snapshot take her to put on the blog I used to go out and look for things and do photography now I'm just a snap it cell phone user. I only take photos for the blog and most of them I don't even save them

Marie Smith said...

It is interesting to see how people interpret the challenges. Well done.

I am not sure that I could pick a favorite...I thought they all filled their assignments and then some. Plus was a joy to look at.

Re the scare crow shot on my blog...that was a 'stop in the middle of the road' shot. LOL It is in a real small town about 10 minutes from here. Even then I was having to watch for traffic, but at least in town it is slow enough till I can move out of the way or go on without someone having to hit their brakes.

Ruth, I'm not sure what the parameters were for your challenge, but I think you did an excellent job filling the requirements!
Great images!

Great pictures! The white birches are my favorites because they are rare in my neck of the woods. So pretty!💖
