With record high temperatures sweeping most of the country, our week of fun in the sun felt like anything but in Southern Alabama. Seriously, when I woke up it was already 86 degrees outside.  Fortunately many of our Project 52'ers found themselves at the beach or staying cool by the water. It was refreshing to watch all the fun you were having as I fanned myself like Scarlett O'Hara. 

Here comes the top 10. As always, our top ten is in no particular order. The artist's information is directly below each photograph. If you enjoy the shot - send them some love. Tell them why you like it. Encouragement comes in all forms and it feels just as good to give it out as to receive it back. 

Here we go...

ONE {When I saw this, all I could think of was the olympics. This shot has so much spunk and some red, white and blue. Easily a gold medal.}

TWO {Love the tone, the splashing waves and the fact that Michael is almost horizontal really makes it pop! Great shot!}

Fun In The Sun...Catch those waves!

THREE {I really like the pure white in this shot - beautifully blown out, proving that you can make the the world look as you'd like to see it right through the lens. Great shot!}

FIVE {The fact that you named him Ted, and there's an inappropriate Teddy bear movie out named Ted made me smile. A perfect week for Ted to be catching some rays! Fun find Claire, your toys always make me smile!}

What's new with Daphne Ellenburg?

Today, new nameless giant baby boy is getting a checkup. He's been swimming up a gold medal in there and I'm sure he's helping me gain another 4 pounds. I'll let you know next week how he's doing.


I'm reading my first book on the iPad. Yep, can you believe it? I'm the one who likes to hold on to a book and hear my pages turn...but I'll have to admit, there's something cool that your Mom never told you about reading in the dark. And James Rollins is my favorite author...it magically appeared on my iPad this week. I asked my husband, when did you buy this? {like he knew this book came out this week} He said, February. This guy rocks. And the book is darn good!


Tuesday the boys saw Spiderman...and Madison and I ate Sushi. Watching her eat it is as much fun as deciding which roll to try.  


Pregnancy amnesia nearly ruined the 4th of July fun....I forgot to take out the Pork Roast Mike planned to cook all week. It was a Pork Popsicle. Drama. I scurried off and bought him the biggest steak I could find and anything else I could find to grill up some love. Another day saved from near disaster.


The Mancave makeover is rounding toward the end. I painted the new ceilings this week - I'm painting the walls Crimson tomorrow and the new Carpet is being laid on Saturday....soon I'll get around to finishing ...er, starting New Baby's room.

Wishing you a wonderful week filled with Family, Fun and Photography! Happy Snapping!

So, What is EP Project-52?
I joined Project 52
We're a group for Photography Enthusiast and Professionals all teaching and learning through each other by photographing to a theme each week. We post our photos to our Flickr group each week by Thursday Midnight and start a new theme each Friday. Each Friday we spotlight 10 photographers and tell why they are featured. Our focus is on education (the how tos) and encouragement (don't be afraid to try something new). I'll bet there is something you'd like to learn. And...I'll bet there is something you can teach us. Check out the group, we're 76 strong this week! It's free to join and the friendships you'll make are priceless. Ellenburg Photography is proud to host this fine group of photographers. Join us today!

Irela - Thank you Daphne for the feature! I showed her and read all the comments to her and it put such a smile on her face. BTW..love that Madison loves Sushi.....I can't get my husband to eat fish and your baby eats Sushi. LOL Have a wonderful week.
Daphne Ellenburg - Thanks Catherine!
I'm painting because I'm cursed with being the best painter in the house....and I didn't have to spackle or build or hold things while there were being built - painting is a win win. And ofcourse it's low voc for extreme safety :-) It will be nice to kick my feet up down there and enjoy a movie in Mike's Movie room Mancave :-)
Joyful Reflections Photography - Congrats to all the winners! It was hot week for most of us!! Daphne, love the sushi photo! I saw that on Instagram and laughed. You're going to have a completely done over home to welcome your new son. Take care of yourself. Mommy's at your stage shouldn't be painting ceilings!!! xoxox :) Catherine
