52 Pick Up – Week 21 (Furry/Feathered Friends) and 22 (Looking In) Review & This Week’s Photo Challenge

I’m so far behind, I think I’m ahead!

Of all the months of the year, June has to be my least favourite!  As the school year comes to a close I find I am more and more busy.  My reality is simple, I can keep up with my school work or I can keep up with my blog.  Right now it is impossible to do both, thus the double week review.  All I can ask for is strength, patience and endurance as I plod through my marking pile as well as write over 200 report card comments.  Throw in the fact that I have to move my classroom before the end of June and it is shaping up to be a crazy month!

I promise that I will continue to keep up with 52 Pick Up, but you will all have to wait until July for a new Pic-a-Day challenge.

Thank you ever so much to those of you who were able to participate these last couple of weeks.  It is my hope that I haven’t missed anyone, but if I did please let me know.

Thank you so much to everyone who checked out the 52 Pick Up Photo challenge and a special thanks to each participant who joined in.  My sincere apologies if I missed anyone in the review.  Please let me know and I will make sure to update the post.

Now to introduce this week’s challenge…..

Week 23: Bokeh

This week is a challenge to have us all work toward capturing images with pleasant bokeh.  Simply put, bokeh is blur.  You can use a shallow depth of field to purposely create a blurred background with the subject of your photo in focus.  Check out Photoble for their How To post on 7 Quick Tips to Create Bokeh with a Digital Camera.

As always, be creative and have fun!  I can’t wait to see all of your images.

Remember to post your images for this challenge in the comment section below!

Wishing each of you an amazing week!

  4. Thanks for the like on my post, I’m so jealous that you had some to teach you to take pictures and a darkroom at home! My father didn’t have the time to, despite the fact that he used to be a very good photographer.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a reply.
