Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #26: White

I think we’re having a slower few weeks because so many people are on vacation and adjusting to new summer schedules.  We’ve still got a great showing for these summertime challenges, even if it’s less than usual!  I was really impressed with this week’s submissions.  I appreciated the out-of-the-box thoughts on this.  I wondered if…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #25: Summer

If I had known my announcing ‘summer’ as this week’s challenge would bring about a heatwave that’s been THIS INTENSE, I may have chosen a different challenge word!  My oh my!  I hope you’ve all been able to keep relatively cool this week.  Our air conditioning broke – we fixed it – and then it…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #24: Power

Another week gone in the blink of an eye!  Many of us ended school years this week.  My son’s ended last week, and my daughter’s ended today!  I can hardly believe it.  The power of time moving too fast.  It seemed like yesterday (like, it ACTUALLY seems like YESTERDAY) that I challenged you to the…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #23: Father

With Father’s Day in the middle of our challenge week, “Father” seemed like an easy challenge word.   We had less participants than usual this week so I guess it was harder than I thought!  It’s really interesting to me to see what people find easy and what people find too hard.  I am always…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #22: Pride

It’s Pride Month and, this weekend was full of joyous celebration in cities and towns all over our country.  It was the perfect week for the challenge word to be “Pride.”  And even if it wasn’t, we’ve all got something to be proud of so it’s not too difficult to come up with something.  I…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #21: Foolish

So this one was challenging, eh?  Not only were we all talking about how this one appeared to be a struggle, but only six of us actually submitted!  That’s the lowest week we’ve had yet!  I’ll have to come up with something exciting for the next one to get you all back in the swing…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #20: Craft

Can you believe we just completed Week 20?!  This challenge has been so fun and I am so looking forward to the next twenty weeks! This week I thought I’d tap into the crafting base of the community and see what works of art people are working on.  From delicious food to coloring to crochet…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #18: Flowers

This week’s theme was suggested by a member of the challenge community and it was the perfect time for such a great suggestion; spring has certainly sprung!  Everyone did a really lovely job with this one.  This gallery is so refreshing and looking at it you can almost feel the fresh spring air surrounding you. …

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #17: Calm

Typically when I post these galleries, I am either doing it from the waiting area of my kids’ swim classes, or, if it’s my husband’s turn to take them to swim, I do it from home.  Last week, it was my husband’s turn to take them and it was a gorgeous day so I was…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #16: Wet

April brought a LOT of showers and therefore it was pouring when it was time to choose a theme for last week.  As I drearily gazed through the droplets on my window for the umpteenth day in a row, the idea came to me.  I figured with all that rain it wasn’t a difficult challenge…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #15: Full

This week’s theme was “Full.”  And what a full week it has been.  A week full of sunshine (finally!) and rain.  Of school vacation and of back to school.  Of so many things.  I’ve been realizing how full my life is lately and while all the things that make it so full are wonderful and…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #13: Open

For this week, I wanted a hopeful idea.  I’d have loved to pick “spring” or “bloom” or something along those lines.  But alas, spring has not yet sprung for most of us playing along, no matter how late into April we seem to be.  So, I decided on a play on the word “bloom” –…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #12: Hands

I’ve always been fascinated with hands.  Not just hands – but how differently each pair handles things.  Everyone touches in a unique way and I love that.  I used to love the way Mister Rogers would hold a wooden block or toy – or a paper cup.  He was always so gentle.  Of course, that…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #11: Transportation

This was such a fun week!  I love all the different ways people went with this.  I still have to post mine (!) but I wanted to get this gallery up now before I stopped for lunch.  We’re moving into our 12th week of this challenge which seems pretty awesome to me.  I love that…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #10: Green

After a few weeks of more challenging…challenges, I decided to give people a break and do another easy one.  Everyone seemed to love doing a color challenge, so I decided it would be a color.  But which one?  Since Saint Patrick’s Day was smack dab in the middle of the week, the color green won! …

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #9: Woman

In honor of International Woman’s Day, our challenge this week was simply, “woman.”  I was looking forward to the many many different ways people could interpret this challenge and I was not disappointed.  I have heard a lot of people say this was a tough challenge and I wonder why.  Why should it be so…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #8: Eggs

This week, in honor of the Weymouth High Theatre Company’s competition play, The Future is in Eggs, the theme was… Eggs!  It was a fun and random week and people did some really creative shots with it.  Mid week, WHTC’s production won at the preliminary round of the Massachusetts High School Drama Festival (yay!!!), and…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #6: Safety

Safety. This week, we’ve had the least amount of posts since the challenge began.  I believe it’s not because people aren’t interested, but instead, because it was too challenging.  Not because of the word itself, but because in light of ongoing events (I wanted to say recent but it’s not just recent events at all),…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #5: Yum

I don’t know about the rest of you playing at home, but this week was hard for me.  I had all these outside-of-the-box ideas for this one.  And then some very simple foodie shots I thought I’d do too.  And I missed a ton of opportunities.  I just wasn’t as inspired for this one as…

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #3: Red

With Valentine Sessions on my mind this past week, I went for our first color challenge: Red.  There will be color challenges peppered in along our journey through this incredibly fun weekly adventure.  I am LOVING the creativity and the fun everyone is having.  I am so excited every time I see that someone posted….

Irish Eyes Photography Community Photo Challenge Week #2: Winter

We’ve got another great week for the photo challenge!  This week’s theme was ‘winter.’  In this area of the world, the beginning of the week offered snow on the ground and plenty of wintery scenes.  But by the end, thanks to an insane amount of rain, snow was a lot harder to find.  This forced…
