I Spy with my Eye… Photo Week!

Two of the most creative people in the world (Amy and Steph) came up with the idea of Photo Week. First, we had Color Week, hosted by Amy. Then Steph hosted Auto-week. Both proved to be challenging and fun learning experiences. I have definitely learned a lot about my camera and myself as a photographer through those first two weeks of Photo Week. I also really enjoyed seeing everyone else’s interpretation of the themes.

And now, it’s my turn to host Photo Week! I was very excited when Steph passed the torch on to me. I thought long and hard about the theme… And now, I present to you Senses Week. That’s right! We’re going to enjoy our 5 sense through photography.

Monday (10/6) – Sight
Tuesday (10/7) – Taste
Wednesday (10/8) – Sound
Thursday (10/9) – Smell
Friday (10/10) – Touch

Photo Week has very few rules. The point is to get out there and use your camera, and observe the world around more than you usually do. To participate, simply take pictures any time this week (starting today). Just be sure to post your pictures on the appropriate day. If you can’t participate every day, that’s fine too. And don’t worry about how advanced of a camera you have. Or how advanced your photography skills are. Just get out there and experiment and see how it goes.

    How awesome that you were on Leno! Are we allowed to ask what you were on for? I love your list and am raising two hands to vote for the Brownie Mosaic Cheesecake. I made it last fall (http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2008/10/11/brownie-mosaic-cheesecake/) and it is simply to die for. You won’t be sorry!!

    What a cool blog event! I wish I had known about it before today, so I could participate. Is it a monthly thing? If so, I’m definitely in next time!

    Michelle – I was the co-captain of a Rube Goldberg team (think of the game mouse trap but on a HUGE scale) in college. In 2003, Purdue won the national competition and they got us on the Letterman show. I was the “spokesperson” for the team and we had our machine on stage. It was an awesome experience. I’ve been trying to find pictures, but that was pre-digital camera for me so I can’t find any…

    Annie – I believe it is a monthly event. I think she started it in May…

    Thanks for the link to my site! I hope you try out the Chocolate Goat Cheese Truffles if you are a goat cheese fan. They were so delish.

    yay for the best bookmarks ever! we have similar taste i guess bc i got some great ideas from this post and i’ve done some on your list. two quick notes on these bookmarks:

    1) do the bagels at smitten kitchen. the cinna. raisin rock and it’s so rewarding to spend that much time and yield awesome results. i’m a new baker and it wasn’t very hard to do. definitely add the maple syrup or molasses to the water when you boil the bagels. dole makes plump raisins and they rock.
    2) billy’s cupcakes will be your answer to vanilla cupcakes forever! i had issues with overflow so i’d reduce the baking powder from 3t (=1T) to 2.5 tsp.
