Almost Fearless

50 Shades of White

The photography contest that I’m judging is ending soon (you have until August 29th to enter, details here) and I’ve been thumbing through the Pinterest board that our host put together. They haven’t gotten all of the entries up, but so far there are 357 in my category (the color white). Here’s a small selection (not exhaustive) of the photos that stood out to me, and I’m really impressed with the quality. I’m completely daunted as to how to even begin to pick because the photos are so different — can you compare a wedding shot to a close up of a hermit crab? Is one better than the other?

I think I have to stand by what I wrote before the contest started, on what I was looking for: “I love photos that tell a story. I want something that could have only been taken by you, in that moment, in that way. I love it when a photo captures a place so well that even if I’ve been there before, I think to myself, wow, I have to go there.”

Still, it’s going to be really hard to choose.

If you were in my shoes, who would you pick to win? I can’t believe I get to give someone an iPad. Best job ever.
