piktripper themes : CIRCLES!!!!

HERE is a selection of some of the GREAT "circles" that were taken last week - this was our 2nd week of this type project and we were SO happy to see the participation!!!  each time someone would 'post' a "circle" to facebook, it would INSPIRE me to go shoot something RIGHT THEN!!!!
take a look at the pix we choose to showcase on our blog.

looking forward to continued participation - most of these pictures posted (to facebook) were taken with just iphones and manipulated with cool iphone apps - MOST apps are free!!!!   

Shadowplay has been a really cool theme -> keep watching for next weeks post on how creative everyone got with light and shadow!!!!!

in the meantime - KEEP SNAPPING!!!!!!

piktrippers weekly theme : GREEN.

we started a collaborative concept in the middle of march called "weekly theme".  it is designed to keep us all "clicking", "snapping" and being creative between pik tripper monthly adventures.

the entire collection can be found on pik tripper's facebook page, TONS of great pix were posted - but the ones eligible are the ones actually shot during the week of the specific theme.  here are some "showcased" images that we wanted to share in our blog.

biggest group so far.

march pik tripper has been our biggest group so far!!!!
17 VERY talented people arrived in weatherford texas on march 6, 2010.

our initial group shot before lunch.

we enjoyed a GREAT lunch at the downtown cafe in the heart of weatherford.

pik tripper was established in june of 2009, with only 4 people, and has grown in size everytime we meet.  our creative group is all about PEOPLE...exchanging ideas : gaining knowledge.

here is how our creative group saw weatherford texas that day in march.

theresa davidson of 3:17 video productions.

anna polikarpova (from russia) who found us in october of 2009 when we were in deep ellum and has attended EVERY time since then.

 vickie bullock took this with her new nikon D40 - great job!!!

 anna polikarpova saw THIS in weatherford - hhhmmm.

 i took this with my NEW 70-200mm lens of carson ingle - a local actor/friend of piktripper.we call him "cool pik".

 another picture i took with my 70-200mm - we call tanja peterhans (from switzerland) "chaplin pik"...

beautiful architectual shot.

cool shot of the downtown courthouse.

another cool shot of deborah diershaw collecting railroad nails.

brian dougher took THIS cool shot at a friendly bakeshop that invited us in!!!

this is katie davidson and we call her "jr pik" because she 'used to be' the youngest piktripper - she prefers we call her "sweet pik". 

ANOTHER cool pic from anna polikarpova - LOVE how she sees america!!!

this is our YOUNGEST piktripper - micah - he is 8 years old.
he had a BLAST!!!!  he prefers we call him "smart pik".
