Boo to the first week back to work. I’ve been so tired which means I haven’t worked on the computer in the evenings which means I have no new photos to share. Again, boo. I figured since we’re only two weeks into the weekly photo challenge though, it would be fun to spotlight some of the challengers.
I’d read comments that “joy” would be hard to capture. I don’t know why people even said that because there is plenty of joy posted to the group. So here are a some that caught my eye. Who am I kidding, I haven’t been able to stop staring at these – I’m fixated on these photos this week.

The color is what caught my eye. What I missed was the fact that he spelled J-O-Y with the straws. So clever! And it’s just a great shot too. I dig it.

I know Rebecca’s love for crafting goes deep so this submission makes complete sense. Again, loving the colors but I also really like the depth of field she used. But that’s a lot of glitter… I wouldn’t want to be your housekeeper.

Doggin!!! I was obsessed the minute I saw this in the group. He’s so cute! And it makes me think of my own doggins and how much the enjoy the snow.

Jump for Joy. This one just makes me smile on the inside. The frozen action and rule of thirds just make me gitty. I luz it.

Speaking of luz: Mmmmm. Donuts. (That was my best Homer Simpson impersonation.) That sprinkled one is just staring at me. It’s taken everything in me not to swing by Krispy Kreme on the way home.

Eeep! Happy baby! The look on her face is priceless but I really like the shot from above and how everything is white – makes for negative space drawing your eye straight to hers. Precious.

I love a good series and this is a good series! It tells a story – a very funny one. I totally dig the post processing and the template set up too. I dig it big time. I wish it were mine.

Mrs. Rev and her M&M tea. She always captures color so well. It makes me jealous.
I may also be jealous of her loads of M&Ms.

Joy found in print. I like how the shot was set up and I like the narrow DOF. Those sparkly letters just hold my attention.

OK. This might have to be my favorite. Seeing that little girl and her face – I want the joy she has. But this shot is beautiful. The line of curb draws your eye up to the subject, rules of third are at play, the subject is perfectly focused and the moment is frozen in time. This, to me, is more than just a photo.
I’ve been blown away by everyone’s entries – there are so many beautiful shots, so many clever shots… I love the fact that we’re all taking our cameras out every week to capture the same thing but end up with completely different images. Perspective is the game changer. Good luck with “control”. I know I need it.
