Photography Challenge- What Can You Find In Your Neighborhood?

So I wanted to do this challenge and I grabbed my friend Sheri and we went walking around our neighborhood. As it turned out, we started at the White's farm just down the street and ended up spending all our time there. As the sun was going down it started to rain and we decided we would just have to do it again.

So about a week later we went out in the evening again and only had time to walk up one street and around to the cemetery and back. For the pictures we got I thought we went a relatively short distance. It's amazing what you can find just right around you!

There is a junk yard just across the street but fenced so you can't see it. I just stuck my camera up over the fence and snapped some shots.

  1. Thanks, Maybe we should do this! Or we can wait until next year. I will probably do a mom's summer photography activity class next year and every two weeks we just meet somewhere and take photographs.
