White [Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge]

We had some short flurries of snow in Chicago last week, one cold windy day and punctuated with bright sunshine. While Mikey and I were outside walking our neighbours dog, that sweet little face you see up there among the other photos. No snow substantial enough to settle on the ground, despite Mikey’s excitement. We happened to be outside for some of it and Mikey kept telling me that he wanted to throw big snowballs! I thought that perhaps enough of it would settle for me to be able to take photos for this week’s challenge, but no luck for either me or Mikey. Not even any glittering frost for me to photograph early in the morning, or perhaps I just haven’t been waking early enough.

On another very cold afternoon we bundled up in warm coats, gloves and hats. We headed out to the park, Mikey ran around on the grass… the cold air making his cheeks glow red. He helped me hunt through the nature garden in search of things that were white. Quite a difficult job, but we managed to find a few things here and there.

I hear that some of you have had snow this week, more than us at least. I’m looking forward to seeing what you all photographed for this week’s colour, snow or not. Yesterday, Kristi, Alicia and I shared a few of our favourites from last week’s colour, brown. Don’t forget to congratulate these ladies on their beautiful work!

I’m teaming up with the lovely and talented Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud and Alicia of Project Alicia for the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge – a colorfully inspiring autumn photography challenge aimed at capturing the beautiful shades of autumn.

Just a few details:

All are welcome regardless of experience, time commitment and whether or not you’re experiencing fall at the moment.

Simply share your favorite images inspired by the autumn shade of the week each Friday and grab our button while you’re at it.

The linky will remain open from 12:01am CST Friday – 11:59pm CST Wednesday. Link directly to your Shades of Autumn blog post or Flickr photo. Feel free to share your photos in our Shades of Autumn Flickr Group as well and don’t forget to follow our Shades of Autumn Pinterest board if you haven’t already! We’ll select our favorite photos of the week and share them with you at Bumbles & Light, Project Alicia and Live and Love Out Loud the following Thursday.

This week is the final colour for the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge.

  1. What great finds, I really like the wall. I was hoping for snow too, maybe tomorrow they say. In the mean time we can keep making the paper ones 🙂
    Stasha´s last post ..Sweet dreams

  2. the wall is my fave here too! looking forward to next week – is it meant to be like a roundup of the best shots from our colour-themed posts? Or a new set of photos altogether? (if it’s the latter then…eek?! I think I’ve used mine all up on the challenges!)
