366-Challenge 333 - Cactus

A rather edgy close-up of some cactus thorns.
I'm quite happy with the sense of depth the thorns in the background creates.
However, the shot is a bit busy.

366-Challenge 135 - Surf

What can I say... Back after almost a month.
This picture illustrates why Cote d'Azur is called just that.
The photo has lost some sharpness due to the crop I've done, but I like
the dynamics of the wave.

366-Challenge 285 - Honey (where are you?)

I think I'm beginning to realise how big the challenge is to post 366-pictures in a year.
So here's another one, with a slight interpretation of the theme...
I snapped these very cute ducks last weekend. The male really looked as if he was looking for the female.

366-Challenge 212 - Warning

Here's my next contribution to my 366-challenge.
I came across these signs right off the piste in a ski-resort at 1500 meters above sea level.
Apparently there must be a road underneath the snow...
Technically not a very good photo (didn't fancy taking my skis off and climb down in my boots) but I like the signs. ;-)

366 Challenge 122 - Sunglasses

This photo summarizes a nice (but slightly too warm) ski day in Italian Limone Piemonte.

366-Challenge 41 - Time

Another 1/2 second of our lives rolls by...
A little Friday night experiment with the strobe function of the flash.
( My fiancée just moved to Luxembourg for 5 months so I've got plenty of spare time... :) )

Look closely and you can see how the ball slows down as it rolls from right to left.

366-Challenge 196 - Fog

Another shot found in the archives from the beginning of the year.
This photo was taken during the same afternoon as the "clouds" picture.
This is on the other side of the mountain overlooking one of the higher valleys.
The question is when fog becomes clouds and vice versa.

366-Challenge 36 - Clouds

During a short hike in mid-January the clouds started to close in from the sea, luckily we were high enough to stay clear.

366-Challenge 171 - Cheese

Seems like I'm starting with the food themes.
Here's a shot of some lovely Chèvre Chaud I had for lunch today.

366-Challenge 328 - Sandwich

Original New Orelans po-boys are fantastic, slobby sandwiches. If you go there you'll have to try one.

The 366-challenge

A brand new blog and a brand new challenge...

I'm taking up the 366 challenge, to take 366 photos during 2008 according to the themes listed below. I was challenged to take up this challenge by mia, but the challenge in this form was started by dogeared. (You can read more about the challenge, the rules, and where the idea originally came from here.)

Up until 10 years ago I was doing quite a lot of photography, but since then I haven't really taken the time. The 366-challenge seems like just the thing to change that...
