This is my first time working with A WORD IN YOUR EAR‘s Weekly Photo Challenges. What I like about this particular one is it offers opportunities to enhance your knowledge about photography techniques as well as just some of the terms that relate to photography.
This week’s theme is ‘Zoom’. Obviously this word relates to bringing things that are far away closer.. I also like some of the other interpretations of zoom that were presented on this blog.
It’s a very interesting challenge and not as easy as one would think if you love to take close-ups of people. I have some favorite facial zooms that others were not entirely pleased with but I love them because they are very natural and beautiful. So my first small set will be of some of my favorite zooms of people and things.

JakesPrinter’s has brought another great theme for this week. CITY
After reviewing all of my favorite shots from my favorite cities I found too many to narrow down. So what I decided to do is pick my favorite city to highlight and post some of my favorite pictures from that ONE city.. and for the others.. well.. I couldn’t just ignore them so they will need to follow in a slideshow. Now if you’ve read a few of my past posts you will know what city I’m going to profile. I hope you enjoy.
In continuation of my 31 days of randomness – Day 13 – a bad day at the beach is better than a good day at (work, school, dishes, chores)
I think one of the best things about my current job is I have had so many opportunities to visit and see places I would never have visited in any other job I had. However, even before this job I realized the importance of free time. I’m a hard worker and an ethical one. I do everything I’m told to do at the best of my ability but even so there are times when nothing feels better than just not going to work (or school, or where ever it is you HAVE to be every day of your life). There’s just nothing more healthy or better than taking a day to yourself, even if it means just sitting in your living room and vegging out to the television.
The following pictures are a reminder that sometimes you just need to take a day and go to the beach. If you can’t make it to the beach yourself at this moment, then go back and relive a special day, if you don’t have any photos to relive a moment then please take a rest, sit back and enjoy one of my special beach moments in Curacao.
This all started from a random site I found called thenester.com. Apparently there is a group of people who have committed to posting a topical theme a day for 31 days. 31 Dayers 2012
