Composition: Minimalism

I'm rather late on updating my weekly photo challenges, and my blog in general, because my photo editing software wouldn't let me import my pictures from my camera. After messing around with the software, I'm still not sure what was wrong, but the photos will import again. So, now I'm playing catchup. Two weeks ago, I'd been focused on minimalist photography.
Since Renn, the girls and I went snowshoeing along the ice covering Lake Superior, I again tried to complete my assignment there. Do you have a favorite? I kind of like the one of Jackie venturing across the banks of snow. 











This picture of Jackie and me sitting on the overlook of the lake was taken by Renn. I wanted to be included in our snowshoeing memories! 

This picture of Bridget isn't exactly sweet simplicity, but it is sweet and I included it because it makes me laugh. This was Renn's first time carrying Bridget in the Moby. It looks like he's growing a second head.


Also of note: Here is a comparison of snowshoe sizes:

My wedding cake

My wedding cake
My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
