2 in 1: Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: Bridges and Signs

The past few weeks have been so crazy that I managed to select photos for the Bridges challenge, but never found the time to post them.

Ans today is the last day of the signs one, which I must confess I wanted to create even before I knew Cee would post a challenge about it.

So here it goes, 2 galleries, one for each subject.

So we cross:

Crossing our ways:

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Birds of a Feather

I’m participating in LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge.

This week’s Challenge is: Birds of a Feather!

I’m not a bird photographer, but lately I’ve been at least trying to get non-blurred pictures of them.

Here are a few, from which my favorite one is the last one.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Walks – indoor and outdoor

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is about paths made for walking.

One of my favorite activities is to walk. And I try to go for walks every week day during lunch time.

Around my office building there are a few different trails.  Some are of gravel, some are paved. And my favorite is one that goes through a small woods.

And that’s the one I’ll be featuring here:

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

This week’s Photo Challenge there is Up.

I’m short, so I’m actually most of the time looking up anyways, but sometimes, I really need to turn my head up. And those times were the ones I decided to show here.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Which Ways – Featuring Steps or Stairs

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge features steps or stairs.

Today also, coincidentally, as I was searching for my pictures of steps, I saw that Bing.com image also features stairs:

Right on topic! Cool.

But now, back to my own pictures, here are some pictures of stairs that for some reason or another I decided to take in the past and collected here…

Thursday Lingering Look at Windows: UW

A few weeks ago I went with my family to UW to enjoy the view of the cherry blossoms they have in campus.

But the beauty of the campus is not only about the flora. The buildings are also pretty and I noticed each of them had similar, but still different architecture, meaning their windows had the same style but were different in details.

Here’s a few of them.

I was awarded honorable mention by the Let’s be Wild!

Let’s be Wild is “a community-driven travel & adventure site featuring stories and photos from people just like you. Even if you haven’t crossed the Sahara Desert on foot, we bet that you’ve got an outdoor tale others would enjoy!”

Every week they create a themed photo challenge to “encourages bloggers to head into the wild (or the backyard) and photograph something that they feel fits the weekly theme. Once you’ve posted your blog entry, comment on the Challenge theme that you’re entering with the link to your post! Each week we choose one first place winner, one audience choice winner, and five honorable mention winners. ”

Last week, the theme was Overlooked, because “The great outdoors is filled with things that are often overlooked by most people. People these days spend so much time hurrying through life, tied to their cell phones, that they often forget to look around and see the overlooked things in nature that make our world so special.”

I’ve been participating on the challenge for the past few weeks, and yesterday, when I visited their site to check the week’s winner, I was surprised to see that my entry was selected as one of the winner for honorable mentions.

Soooo freaking coool!!!!

Here’s the winner picture

and the entry post.

Thanks Let’s be Wild!

It’s really fun to participate on your challenges. I’ll sure keep doing it!

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Clouds!

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and outdoor photography magazine Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers.

This week’s Challenge is: Clouds!, which is a subject I’ve been taking pictures of for quite some time.

 

So here i’ll add 2 examples of the most recent ones that I liked.

They were both taken with my HTC 8X Windows phone, from the car, while waiting at the traffic lights, at around sunset time. I did some cropping just to take the road out of the picture (the phone stays in a littl holder at the dashboard, so there is always some dashboard and road on those pictures…)

I hope you will like it.

Some golden and a lots of gray. I like the gray clouds formation on this one.

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Overlooked – Take 2

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and outdoor photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers.
This week’s Challenge is: Overlooked!

I had created an entry for this challenge already (here), but I couldn’t resist posting this one, that shows a bug that got totally overlooked by me at the moment I took the shot. I saw it only on the computer screen, after uploading the file.

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Overlooked

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and outdoor photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers.
This week’s Challenge is: Overlooked!

On my daily walks, sometimes I take a trail that goes along a freeway. At the trail head, in the space between the trail and the freeway entrace, there is a whole big mini forest of sprouted moss, that I’m sure gets overlooked more often than not…

Thursday Lingering Look at Windows, Friday edition: flying away

Yesterday the day was so busy, both at work and at home, preparing to leave on vacations, that I found no time to search for pictures of windows.

But this ended up being good, because it gave me the chance to post fresh from the oven Friday windows pictures.

Have a nice trip ya’ll!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lines

This week’s  Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Lines.

This week I’ve been trying to get lines (and textures, already preparing for next week ;)) for a few days already, so I was able to put up a collection of indoorsy and outdoorsy lines…
