Sunday Stills - 25 And 50 Steps

Part 1. Choose a starting spot, walk 25 steps in any direction and take 3 photos. The 25 steps can be outside your home, inside your home, in your neighborhood or away from your neighborhood.
Once your steps have been counted out, you must anchor one foot, you can pivot on that foot but your anchor foot may not move.

Part 2. Choose a starting spot, walk 50 steps, repeat the instructions above. The 50 steps can be in a different direction, a different location or the same as the 25 steps.

Think about it before you start your counting. Be aware of your environment, look around & estimate your steps so you have an idea of what shots you might get. Try to measure your steps so that they are approximately the same size.

Photo enhancements are allowed. This is a no archives challenge and it not only gets you out and shooting but gives you the opportunity to compose a picture in what might be a difficult place. Be creative……shoot macro, landscape, go low or shoot high…..whatever gives you the chance to make a better picture. Have fun!







Hank followed me down the fence line. That's Renny (too) fuzzed out in the background.



Our footprints side by side.



Evidence of Hank's traveling that route before.



And the sun quickly melting the frosted grass.

This was a really fun challenge. I did mine backwards (no big surprise) and went 50 steps down the lane, planted my feet, then went 25 steps up the wet weather creek in our front field. I got completely different shots than what I thought I was going to get.

For more photographed steps...

I'll post Hug a Sheep Photos later this afternoon. Right now I'm headed out to ride Hickory :-).

Love the composition and balance of the first photo. It’s amazing where 50 steps will take you and the different scenery your camera captures.

First photo would make a great jigsaw puzzle picture. Love Hank's expression.

Oh,I see you had a frost last night too. My new pup didn't like walking in the icy leaves at 4:45 this morning!! Pretty pictures. :)

Nice collection! We are having frosty mornings too.

Wow, these really are some great shots. I love them. Something completely outside of what we would normally try to photograph. What a great challenge.

Great pics and such nice scenery you get to see with only taking 25 - 50 steps! You have great imagination to think of taking pics of grass and steps and such. We had a heavy frosh here in Indiana last night too. Winter is on it's way....

Hank is looking very dignified and noble these days. Love the trail you 2 made together. So appropriate for you and your creatures.
