Photo Challenge – week of Feb 26th – “Shiny”

For the week of February 26th, the challenge was “Shiny.”  I walked around all week repeating “shiny, shiny, shiny” to myself, like a lunatic.  I got several photos, but there are two I took today that I particularly like.

The fuel rods as seen from inside the reactor core of a nuclear power plant.

The copper canister for fuel rod disposal.

I’ve always been interested in photography, but have never really learned a lot about it – or had a good enough camera to really go crazy with.  For Christmas, my lovely husband bought me a good camera, and one of the things I want to work on while we’re in Finland is learning photography.

Last month, my friend Jen challenged me (well, everyone, really) to do a photo a day.  I immediately accepted…and pretty much failed.  I’ve done a photo a day challenge before, for the entire year of 2010, and I know how difficult it is to take interesting photos every day (as opposed to yet another photo of your cat), let alone really play with the camera and see what you can do.  So instead of a photo a day challenge, I’ve decided on a photo a week challenge, based on the PhotoSunday challenge of the week.  I don’t plan on submitting my photos to their website, mainly because I’m not ready to start a second blog specifically for photos, but I will be using the challenges on there.

    I love your photo a week challenge idea especially with a different “theme” each week! I might have to dust my camera off and challenge myself 🙂
