    WEEK 7: Story - Forgotten "Abandoned was a very popular week in the original challenge. For the advanced challenge tell the story of something forgotten." Having three kids, it was only a matter of biding my time until the right moment for this week's challenge.

    WEEK 6: Artistic - Candy "A throwback to one of the favorite weeks of the original challenge. Your artistic inspiration this week is candy. Since this is the advanced challenge... you can't actually use candy in the scene." Technically, naked candy is not in frame, so this counts, right? Right?

    WEEK 4: Story - Mirror "Tell a story using a mirror." Big thanks to my iModel, Alexis! She saved all of you from horrible dramatic selfies I took this week.

    WEEK 3: Artistic - Land "Your inspiration this week is land. This could be a landscape, or an image inspired by the land in some way." I ultimately decided on this photo instead of my landscape panoramics because showing our relationship with the land felt like it had more impact than just showing the land itself. Also, I didn't have enough time to wait for them to finish their lunch.

    Methinks one of my kids needs to learn about hiding evidence.

    "Straight out of the Camera. No Photoshop. Shoot a compelling image and post it without edits. No cheating! (Be sure and save the image file for the end of the challenge!)" Photo by Michael Soliman

    I have to admit that this assignment made me twitch. I've spent years refining my post-processing technique, to the point where I usually don't spend more than 5 minutes in Lightroom. As a result, when I compose photos in my mind, I envision the final product. Posting this feels like pulling a pie out of the oven too early. :) #dogwood2017 #dogwood52 #dogwoodweek2

    I like this one. It has my rethinking my week 1 photo. I might need a better story.

    Time to see what all the hubbub is about mirrorless cameras. Thank goodness for rentals.
