Week 22 - Triangle Composition: I was getting some shots of my grandson in the studio when I hit on the idea of posing him to show three triangles - his legs, the bat in his hand, and his tip of the cap.

Week 21 - All in Focus: the challenge this week was to feature a photo with good focus throughout the depth of the photo. I took this photo of the opening of an NCAA DI baseball regional tournament game. In addition to the baseball field, the photo shows the University of Louisville football stadium in the background.

Week 19 - Architecture: In 1853, a wealthy German immigrant and stonemason named Christian Heigold completed his house in an area east of downtown Louisville called The Point. Heigold adorned the home with American icons, honoring the country that afforded him an opportunity. In fact, a bust of our 15th President, James Buchanan (visible in the top center of the facade) is the only known standing monument to the leader.  The Point was home to mostly immigrant families, who were not always welcomed into the city's community. The character of the neighborhood changed over the years, in part because it frequently flooded thanks to its low-lying position near the river and a newly diverted creek. During the Great Flood of 1937, the area was virtually obliterated. Heigold’s mansion was mostly demolished, but the façade survived. It has been relocated and is the only remaining piece of architecture from a historic area of Louisville’s past.

Week 18 - Lay Flat: This theme features items arranged for a top-down view. This style is often used for product or food photography, but can be other things. One suggestion was to include one's workspace. I chose that one, along with the 'extra challenge' of including a self portrait in the shot.

Week 17 - Leading Lines: The theme features leading lines, which serve to draw a viewer's eye to an important part of the scene. In this view of Louisville's Cathedral of the Assumption, the line of the seats and the line of the columns draws the eye to the alter and stained glass window.
