This week has been spring break for my kids and although we haven't gone anywhere we have sure kept busy. The weather has been in the 80's and we've spent a lot of time outside riding bikes and playing at the park so it's no wonder that I waited until almost the last minute to finish this week's theme of Smooth.

During Yahoo's naptime yesterday all was quiet in the house. The boys were playing at the park with friends so I slipped outside for a quick walk around the house looking for smooth but everywhere I looked I noticed textures. I sure hope texture is a theme for one of my 52 weeks.

The sky was pretty empty and smooth looking so I tried to take emphasize the blue while including some elements that put the sky in context because a rectangle of blue may be smooth but I don't think it would be interesting to look at.

I like both of these exposures and just love the colors that came out in the pine needles.

Next week's theme is DOOR. I have the perfect doorway I've been waiting to shoot too! I might go on a country jaunt to find some old rundown farmhouses if the weather is nice.
