The WINNERS From Our Photo Challenge 

Photography Challenge - Green

I use photography to pay for my "mission habit." We work in the Central African Republic where there is a lot of rust colored earth, poverty and conflict. The most beautiful thing in the country are the people. Each trip I try to take family photos for one of my Central African friends. Cyriaque brought his family for the shoot in these lovely matching green outfits. Photographing Central Africans can be difficult. It's not something that they grow up with and often the kids (and even adults) are a bit scared of me and my camera. Thankfully I was able to get lovely smiles to go with their awesome green outfits!

I love photographing plants and nature, so naturally I went for the weeds or pre-emergents my landscaper husband calls them. I am 8 months pregnant and looked awfully funny rolling around with my 35mm like a beached whale while trying to get the sun just right!
