I hope everyone has been enjoyed a fabulous weekend! Got your cameras ready for a new challenge? I hope so! I think this on is going to be especially fun. There are no limits in what you might find to share with us all!
The only task for this challenge is to pick a starting place, then get 10 minutes away and photograph something there. You can start from home, work, the store, the park, you name it. And however you end up 10 minutes away is your choice. Whether it be to walk, run, jog, drive, catch a bus, ride a horse... Whatever suits your fancy!
It's just that simple!
Photo Challenge Rules: ~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos. ~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best. ~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued. ~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site.

We recently discovered a wonderful park just 10 minutes from our house. This weekend, we went and I believe we happened upon the last butterfly of the season. (Or is he a moth?)
These photos were taken 6 mins. from my house going North. I have a story to share about fall leaves. My son commented on a couple that live in the same town that we do. The husband is color blind and the wife says that we live in the worst place in the whole world and if she could move she would. He said how sad it was that they couldn't see the beautiful colors of the fall leaves. He said "One can't see and the other won't see." I thought it was very profound for a 12 year old boy. Maybe I can try to find something 10 mins from work later on this week.
Oh my goodness! Okay, I'm just drooling now...all of you have taken amazing photos. That butterfly one in flight is fantastic! Jeez, what kinda cameras are you ladies using? I think I need what you have and lessons from you too!
Well, I took a quick trip today, to see what I might find for the challenge. I decided to go to the end of the City Limits and drive for 10 minutes....zig zagging down some country roads. I was getting a bit disappointed with the corn fields gone and most of our trees bare these days. I was almost at my 10 minute limit when I came across this old abandoned barn. It is so close to the road, I never got out of my truck to take the picture.....hehe!! If you notice the green grass in the one corner, that's the edge of the ditch to give you some perspective of how close to the road it is.
Thanks for looking....((I couldn't resist putting an actual frame on this one!))
My DH dosen't like to go with me when my intent is to take photos. I will spend hours and at time have even risked life and limb to capture a good shot. I literally took 2000 photos yesterday and was in my glory. I'm blessed to be on this beautiful island for the next 3 years. I'm out every weekend with my cameras.
