Photo Challenge Week 19: High Contrast Lighting

The Scientist in Training and I struggled to come up with photos for this week's challenge.  Understandable on her part, she's got a paper due for Medicinal Chemistry, an exam in Advanced Inorganic Chemistry next week and is trying to get her graduate school applications finished before the 12/1 deadline.  As for me, I just couldn't wrap my head around the challenge.  Even after Googling the concept, it didn't prompt any clever ideas.  So this week's photo prompt was challenging.

 I found a subject, but had the wrong camera with me.  But sometimes you just gotta make do. 

Kate: Street Lighting

It's not the shapest photo, but I liked the splash of color highlighted by the street lamp in the parking lot outside my office window.  

My Guy's early morning walks last weekend netted him a cool shot. 

My Guy: Sparring

Our neighborhood is at the east edge of town.  To the east of us it's all fields for quite aways.  He caught these two dudes playing in the dawn light. 

The SIT did a good job finding a subject for this week's challenge. She sent me this photo once she called it a day on Friday. 

Scientist in Training: The Light Tree

I'm not sure what to call the light tree, but it's one of her roommate's favorite items of decor in the apartment. Last year it doubled as their Christmas tree.  The lighting makes a really cool photograph.  The SIT's is my favorite shot this week. 

I pulled the card from the deck for this week's photo challenge. 

The SIT's response to my text was "I got this".  Not sure I do.

I love that you all found something for the challenge! I can imagine you looking out your office window and thinking, "oh, look!" What a view your guy has on his walks!

When I saw that challenge, I thought, Ooooh, that’s a hard one. Y’all got some great shots! The next one sounds hard too!

I like all 3 photos! What an awesome sight your husband caught on his walk. Wow!! Best of luck to SIT with those grad school applications. I'm sure she will do well and get the desired acceptance.

I do remember how nervous I was about starting grad school - the second time. The first time around my kids were babies, and then my dad had a stroke. So I quit. But then in my mid-4os I decided to start over again. I felt positively sick the day I went to take the GRE - so afraid I wouldn't score high enough to be accepted. But happily I walked across that stage at the ripe old age of 48. Yay!!

I finally bought that deck of cards, my daughter and I were going to try it, but we haven't gotten going. She's so busy with work that we forget. I enjoy seeing your photos, but I need to go back through your blog - I'm missing some of your posts I think. Anyway, great lighting shots! It's so fun that the three of you are doing this together!

I love how you all continue to come up with unique image ideas for the photo prompts. Your "Street Lighting" is my favorite for this week, Kate.
