Red, White and Blue are pretty active colors this week in the US with the excitement and anticipation of election day coming next week. We gave our photographers the choice of one or any combination of these colors for this week's Project 52 Theme. The result is as expected, a fantastic broad array of wonderful images around our United States and other wonderful parts of the world.  I'm always impressed with the great efforts, finds and techniques used from the great group of participants. Now on to the Red, White And Blue. 

Our top ten is in no particular order. The artists links are directly below each photo. When you enjoy their work, visit their sites. Join their pages. Everyone could use a little pat on the back, so pat away!

Here we go...

Honorable Mention {I know that as a group, our east coast participants have really been on our mind. Hurricane Sandy was hard on you guys. We know you still have a lot of work to get back to normal, but were so happy that you are all safe.}

Week 45's theme is "Look Down" 

I took this shot Thursday night from the top of a giant ferris wheel, while keeping four year old Madison still enough to get this shot. A real Miracle. I love the bright lights of the fair.

What's New with Daphne Ellenburg? 

I have been a little down in the dumps this week. I'm 100% positive that it's because my maternity leave is winding to a spiraling end. Sad face. I sure like the excuse of having to hold my baby all day. It works for everything.

Keeping that in mind, I've been packing this week full of everything I can and I'm really beat!

Halloween was a winner. Great costumes. Great photos. Great Trick or Treating and one amazing party.


Celebrated Grant's Straight A report card at the Mobile Fair with the Ellenburg Six. I love going to the fair. Bright colors. Great tasty smells. Mmmmmm. I forced everyone to eat at "Daphne's Diner" so I could feel like I made dinner. {I felt good about it.}


And then today after only 3 hours of sleep I chaperoned a field trip to the Greek Fest with my oldest boy, Jackson. Mmmmm. A tasty trip indeed.


So, needless to say, I'm exhausted; but I'm happy. I wouldn't have traded the past 8 weeks of baby holding and Super Momness {my new favorite word} for anything.  Now, I guess I'll just try to take my multitasking to a whole new level. I will miss you Maternity leave. Sigh.

Remember friends, Tuesday is election day. Vote. Make your vote count and if you can, vote twice. Just kidding. {Mostly.}

Irela - What a fabulous week. I loved many of the images submitted. They were all so cool and wonderful. Got to say that the costumes for your kiddies were the neatest. You hit three of my FAV movies. Ghostbusters, Star Wars and Wizard of Oz. Just fabulous and that little pirate was the cutest. You are one pretty cool mom. Thank you for this feature you know that my feet are doing the Monster Mash!!! Have a great week. Xoxo
Cramershot - Daphne, you are amazing. Three hours of sleep?! You are a supermom.
