Weekly Photo Challenge : Free Spirit

As you may have noticed, it’s been a little quiet here at Postcard Fiction.  I was away camping on the beautiful shore of Lake Superior and am now back with 600 new photos and a ton of inspiration.  And, what a better way to start blogging again, than with the Weekly Photo Challenge.

This photo was taken at sunset but I wanted to play around a bit with the exposure so that I would see more of my kids than just their dark shapes against the orange sky. The sky now looks nearly white and the sun a bright yellow and I love how two or three of the stones in the air are highlighted by the sun.  It’s not perfect but I think it turned out okay and captures this week’s theme of Free Spirit.

  1. A great image. And a nice tribute to the passing of summer.

      Thanks Carrie. This is the second year now we’ve spent the last week of summer there and I don’t think it will be the last.

      Thank you. THere is something about a beach that kids just can’t get enough of.

    • Janet said:

      Thanks Elena. It’s fun to play around with the exposure and film speed. You never know what you might get.

    • Janet said:

      Thank you. We love it too! I think it must be one of the most beautiful places on earth.

    I was expecting a shot of you dropping the kids off at school. Had a good holiday, I see.

    • Janet said:

      Ha! Yes it was wonderful and surprisingly relaxing.

    • Janet said:

      Thanks Polly. I’m glad you like the photo (as there are sooo many more that’ll be on my blog soon).

      Thank you. Lake Superior was very inspiring.
