Project MCP: Highlights for April, Challenge #2

The pool of inspiration for April, Challenge #2’s highlight post was not “shallow”  (pun intended). In fact, the Flickr gallery is waist-deep with beautiful, interesting and creative photos taken with a shallow depth of field; so much so, that the Project MCP Team could not narrow their favorites down to only a few. Here are some highlights from Challenge #2 – take a photo with a shallow depth of field:

Spring has officially sprung here in the US and to celebrate the season, Challenge #3 for April is to capture the word/concept of “blooming” in a photo. For most of us this will incite visions of beautiful flowers opening themselves to the sun; however, the Project MCP Team challenges you to ponder the definition below when taking your photo this month. We look forward to seeing everyone’s interpretation!



1. in bloom;  flowering; blossoming.
2. glowing, as with youthful vigor and freshness: bloomingcheeks.
3. flourishing; prospering: a blooming business.
4. Chiefly British Slang . (used as an intensifier): He’s got his blooming nerve.

5. Chiefly British Slang . (used as an intensifier): not blooming likely.

We want to thank our corporate sponsors for Project MCP:

    just wanted to respond to your post subject “mean.” very well said, indeed. i’ve been on the receiving end of some of this type of speech, even if only mildly; still it was enough that i now do not *ever* post on any forums, discussion groups, or blogs. (although obviously, i am doing that right now, hopefully it will not backfire on me . . . !)

    there are many times i’d like to ask something, or add support/agreement, or whatever. but when i see how some others were treated within that setting, i simply am not willing to subject myself to even the slightest possibility of being the target.

    sadly, we so often say things in the cyber-world that we would never say face-to-face. still, i don’t find this particularly comforting; nor am i willing to accept it as an excuse for people treating other people poorly.

    so, Jodi-thank you for tackling this unpleasant subject, and i’m so sorry that you’ve had to be on the receiving end of any of it yourself :o(

    best wishes –
