There has been a new challenge roaming around the blogosphere called Five Photos, Five Stories. And I secretly wanted to be asked to participate in this challenge. And sure enough Helen over at HHC Blog asked me to join along in the fun. I have known her for a year or so and she is a lot of fun. If you don’t know her you should check out her blog.
The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.
I would like to ask Marilyn from Serendipity blog to join along in the fun if she is willing to play. I’ve known her for nearly two of blogging (maybe longer). She is a fabulous writer and photographer so I’m sure you will get plenty of stories along with her photos.
NOTE: If any one of you are secretly hoping you will be asked to join along in this fun challenge, please feel free to contact me separately.
Here is today’s photo.
I took this photo on November 10, 2007. I had just gotten my first pre-DSLR Sony DSC-H9 camera. I was still too afraid to take photos in RAW even though the camera was capable of it. Chris and I spent the weekend in Lincoln City, Oregon. We always went to this one hotel where you could stand outside and get a good view of the ocean that was over 100 feet below. The hotel was on a cliff. This was my first sunset photo I ever took.
That was back before the days we had a lap top, so I had to wait until we got home to see what I had captured. After seeing this photo, I was convinced I wanted to get serious about photography. By the end January 2008, I bought my first grown up camera a Nikon D80.
I did sell this photo to a person who I worked with. She loved it that much. It is still one of my favorite sunset photos that I have taken.
