I love You Capture but have decided I need to take a break from it for awhile. I am spending more time outside and am pursuing other projects but will be back!
To me, vibrance is all about bright colors. I also think of vibrant communities. As a proud resident of Minneapolis, MN, I am always trying to capture the beauty of my home. Minneapolis is made up of 81 neighborhoods, many with a distinct look and feel. I have spent time in most of these neighborhoods and now plan on capturing each of them from my point of view through the lens of my camera.
For this YouCapture, vibrance can be found in the photos taken on the 1.5 mile walk down Franklin Avenue SE which crosses both the Seward and Ventura Village neighborhoods.

It is perfect that today is little Miss Brynn's birthday and she is the subject of my Youth captures. I am so glad that I have friends with such great kids so I can get my kid fix pretty regularly. It is an important ingredient in my recipe to keep from being an old crankster! Brynn showed me her birthday loot and we had some great laughs, thanks in part to potty humor, the best kind.
Name the emotion.
I'd be interested in hearing your interpretations of the emotions conveyed in these photos. Leave your thoughts in the comments!
A photo challenge which I will loosely interpret because of my no kids status. Anyone in the Twin Cities want to donate their youth for a photo shoot?
In an ideal world I would have captured all of my favorite body parts of the beautiful people around me. Anytime I was with those people the lighting was bad or it would have been socially awkward for me to snap a photo. So...self-portrait body parts it is!
Emotion. In Black and white.

I was on vacation in Denver, CO this week so all of my photos are pieces of the trip. I found myself searching for "L" words the entire trip. It made me want to do a photo scavenger hunt on my next vacation.
Next Week: Technology
Next week's theme:
The letter “L.” Anything that starts with the letter L.
About You Capture
Beth of I Should Be Folding Laundry, created You Capture. In her words, this weekly challenge is to "encourage those of you interested to pick up your cameras and try something new or just pick them up at all and snap a shot here or there. And not only that, but to see what others were doing with their camera and gaining inspiration from them".
