focus52|2012 {week fourteen} april 1 to april 7

April Fool’s Day today! Did anybody get you? Leave a comment here and tell us all about it! I have to say, fooling people is a lot easier on a weekday, rather than a Sunday. Especially when you’ve slept in and forgotten all about it ;)

Easter is also approaching this weekend. Since not all of you celebrate the occasion, I’ve chosen to just give a fun little nod to it with this week’s prompt.

That pretty much leaves it wide open to whatever you’d like to shoot this week, whether it be Easter related or not. I happen to love soft pastel colors in photography and can’t wait to see what this group comes up with. I hope you have a bit of fun searching out some soft, pretty colors.

Whatever you choose to do this week, follow the prompt or no, come back here and link up your work when you’re done (weeks run Sunday to Saturday, don’t forget!). Links must be to the direct URL of your actual work, not just to the site it’s posted in, and may be a link to your blog post or to your flickr photo (again, the actual photo, not your entire flickr stream). Also, please don’t link and run – try to find some time to visit at least a few of your fellow 52’ers. That’s half the fun! And don’t forget the flickr pool!

Remember, you do not need to use the prompt in order to come back here and share.

Have a fun week, 52’rs!

    My sister was born on 1 April. Being both older and larger she very early on taught me not to indulge. I seem to be around people who must have had similar siblings.

    I’m behind on my blogging! Just blogged “minimal” … and those photos would have been awesome for pastels. Guess I need to think of something different (and get it blogged in time to link up!)

      I find it helps to do just one big catch up post when you’re behind.
      If you’re anything like me, the thought of all those posts puts me in to full on procrastination mode ;)

      You’re not too far behind though! Piece of cake! hehee

    Hey Jan, any chance you can extend the linking up until Monday? We’ll be out of town for Easter, and I know I can’t link up in time (unless I can somehow edit from my parents’ computer, my sister might have Photoshop installed there). Just thought I’d ask in case an extension is an option. The Sunday cut off has been killing me, really wish we had until Monday morning to link up. ;)

      Oh hon, Sunday IS the extension.
      Our weeks run Sunday to Saturday and you have the entire week to link up, plus Sunday until approx 9pm (depending on your time zone).
      I knew I would be away from Thursday on, so got mine done on wednesday. Just takes a little pre-planning ;)
      Are you leaving your photography until Saturdays every week??? That would be a little stressful!

    No, I just leave my processing and blogging until the weekend (usually). But if it runs Sunday-Saturday, why do we get the prompt Sunday night? I feel like I miss a whole day.

      Because people wanted that time to link up and whatnot.
      Stop stressing :p

    Despite my best intentions, there’s no way I can link up in time. My sister’s $#*&*#&%&Q^% computer won’t recognize my RAW files, and I can’t update her Photoshop (probably because she’s using improperly obtained software, which really ticks me off because it’s not right). I’ve spent the last hour on this computer trying to install converters but without her password, I’m hosed. Can’t believe this will be the third week in a row I can’t link up. Hate that. :(

    Well, hope everyone had a happy Easter! Will look at the other linked photos when I’m home again. :)
