Tell us when you started linking up with us, share memories, repost your favorite theme from one of our topics, or talk about the friends you have made. If you have a chance, invite one of our former participants to come back and link up this week or just to stop by and say hi. You can find them in the older posts linkys, comments or the side bar listing which has not been updated in a while. You don't need to know them to invite them. Just introduce yourself and extend the invitation.

FSO-Spotlight photos

There were some very interesting photos and histories this week. Made for a good group.

In reading each blog I think we all agreed Dawn
Treader had the oldest and most unusual combination of photos.
The simple example of architecture outside coupled with the intricate work on the inside.


  Okay folks, see you next week with 
Bicycles.

FMTSO Spotlight: Windows and doors

Late.  Very late.  I was going to say the wheels fell off our Spotlighting this week but really they just wobbled a bit.  I wonder if Wheels would be a good topic for our Shoot Outs?

Anyway, here we are, better late than never as they say, at least as my grandmother used to say.

I'm pressed for time so I'm going with just one shot this week.  I really loved this topic and I enjoyed looking around at everyones posts.  Some amazing shots but there was one, that stood out for me.


We all know what a terrific photographer Rebecca is and I know others are as grateful as I am for her tutorials.  Her shot reminds me how lucky we are to have her as leader of our team.  Thank you, Rebecca.

Windows and Doors


Windows and Doors...
always a favorite.  


FMTSO Spotlight: You & Your Camera

My first question about this theme was, "How do I photograph my camera when it's the only digital camera I have?" All of you managed to rustle up another camera to photograph your current go-to camera but it was Pauline who came up with the obvious answer ~ use a mirror.

Pauline's photograph of her camera in her hands was my favorite for its clarity and ingenuity.



The best part of reading each of your posts was your stories. Some of you have incredible recall of all of the cameras you've owned since you were quite young. What a pleasure to read about so many different makes and models of cameras, especially the film cameras that most of us used when we first started shooting.

Because I can, I'm including one photograph taken with one of your cameras. I loved Dawn Treader's photograph of her brothers and a couple of his friends taken when she was 10 using her first camera: a hand-me-down from her father who also processed their film.


Thanks so much for participating in one of the toughest photo challenges I've seen here on FMTSO. You're all such good sports to keep stretching your limits.

Next week should be a bit easier on everyone since it's an old favorite: Windows and Doors. I hope those of you living in colder climates can get out there to shoot.

Peace,
Cheryl

Is anyone else out there confused about why we do the Spotlight before the linky closes? I don't want to shut anyone out but it seems that posting on Monday has become the norm and I don't want to disappoint those of you who've been participating so faithfully for years.

Pee Ess: No, you're not imagining things. I back-posted this so it would appear after last Friday's theme and before Rebecca's intro to this Friday's theme.
