December Photo Challenge: Week One

Last week on my Facebook page I started a photo challenge for the month of December.  You can find all sorts of photo challenges online or you can make up your own.  I decided to use the challenge created by Stephanie over at Silver Boxes.  How these photo challenges usually work is you take one photo each day that revolves around the specific theme for that day.  I’m posting the daily photos on my Facebook page and I’ll be doing a weekly summary here on my blog.  So without further ado, here is Week One of the December Photo Challenge!

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial

As I said in a previous post, we had some family visit over Thanksgiving and we took them to the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, also known as the St. Louis Arch.  I’ve been there several times before but this was my first time back since purchasing my new lens earlier this year.  I was really looking forward to photographing the memorial grounds in ways I hadn’t thought of before.  When you’re a photographer it seems like over time your “eye” (how you envision a photograph before you take it) becomes less conventional and starts to see things in a more creative light.  Or at least that’s what my photographer eye has been doing.
