Take52 Challenge: Week 18 – Down

For last week’s challenge, the theme was ‘Down’ – another word that can be interpreted several ways. This Challenge is so educational in so many ways! I was once again uncertain about what I was going to do, although staircases came immediately to mind. I even went hunting for one, but no gorgeous spirals live in near proximity 😉 and so had to think again. The picture I finally went with, is not special in itself, but important to me because it’s the first time that I was bold enough to take pics in the Mall with my DSLR! I’m very conscious and nervous when it comes to ‘street photography’, just scared of giving offence where none is meant I guess. So taking a picture of people on an escalator was quite the Challenge. I kept thinking someone would come over and object or that Junior would raise a ruckus, but ‘All’s Well that Ends Well’ :) Then Junior got into the act and made me take the second picture! I hope this will nudge me along in the right direction as far as taking ‘public pictures’ goes. I love that kind of photography and want to get better at it. This time I didn’t really have time to delve into my archives…

Meanwhile here goes…

And just coz 3’s my lucky number, here’s one of a sunset that I took a while ago…

  1. Nice job, brave girl 🙂 I like these mostly because you safely stepped outside of your comfort zone and expanded it! But the perspective on the shot with your kiddo is pretty cool. And your sunset is absolutely lovely. And summery. We only see suns like that in the warm months here.

  2. Thanks Heather 😀 I hope I can carry it forward! Well, we are in the speak of our summer here…it was searingly hot all day today but thankfully has cooled down with some showers this evening! Am off now to read The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd…captivating!
