Photo Challenge: WOMAN

This one was interesting. I got a lot more submissions than I'm able to show here so please click through to the photo pool and check out all the amazing women featured by our participants. I'm adding the begging italics because I know you, I know you're a non-clicker like me and I don't want you to miss out on all the visual deliciousness. Don't forget to scroll down for the next prompt, either.

This is Smalltown Mom's mom wearing a Kilroy Was Here shirt in 1948. There's nothing that is not awesome about this.

Chrome enjoys a themed party. I don't know what the theme is here precisely but I like it! I also love that it's unintentionally totally selling her funny t-shirt.

I know Our Bethany well enough to know that she's probably elicited more than one of these looks from her elders. Loving but challenging. It's great when you get this look from a cherished older lady.

I bet you think this is a vintage shot from Our Janet's archives, don't you? It's not! Check out her sneakers and look closely at her pants, they're jeans. How cool is that?

When I feel pressure in a social situation I often hide behind my camera under the guise of recording the event for the honorees. At this bridal shower I met the mother of the bride (center) for the first time. Not sure she was down with my coping mechanism but I love her face and took a few shots of it.

I told Our Cindy that she was going to have to come up with something pretty spectacular to oust this as my favorite. While she made a good faith effort she didn't quite accomplish it. These are the sort of women I want to grow old with. Very, very old.

I think it's telling that only one photographer included a self-portrait. It might mean I need to create a prompt that requires it. Our Lisa has been working really hard on her fitness lately. I'm so glad she decided to share her results (and her new outfit) with us.

Our Suebob broke hearts with this shot of her late sister, Laura, as a new mom at the ripe old age of 19. If it makes you cry know that you are not alone.

I need some time to catch up financially with all the donating we've been doing. $80 to the Lung Association this time around! This challenge will just be for fun. I think we all need a little more sweetness and light in our lives. Thus the challenge is JOY! (Exclamation point included.)

Please add your photos to our Flickr photo pool by 9am on Tuesday March 27th for posting on Wednesday March 28th. Let me know if you have any questions!


  1. You know the one with me in the hat and my sister behind me? Self portrait. That might have been the first year for the 365 day project.

    I love the old pictures that got put in this pool. They are just so darn cool.

  2. You are 100% in the right! I was so focused on the girls in their fowling best that I didn't even register it.

  3. what an awesome collection of women.

  4. I loved this bunch of shots! Especially Smalltown Mom's and Bethany' cool!
