My Addiction: Weekly Photography Challenge

Image by Lali Masriera

Your challenge this week is to take and share an image on the theme of ‘My Addiction’.

For me there is no doubt what I’ll be photographing – a rich creamy latte – coffee is my addiction.

What is yours? Food, a person, your favourite gadget or camera or???

Once you’ve taken your ‘Addiction’ Images – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to them or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSADDICTIONto help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Shoes challenge where there were some great shots submitted.

Read more from our Tips & Tutorials category.

    I have two additions... My husband is my first addition

    and my second addition would have to be taking photos of beautiful nature scenes

    both of these were taken with my Fuji S2940WM

    Albeit the fact that i love photography to the max, my main hobby is still magic. Practice with playing cards nights and days, and with a weird coincidence i stumble upon this neat little idea, to shot those cards in different angle and inevitably create a whole new meaning of LOVE.

    Eyes! Eyes are the best part of a portrait, but what if the portrait is of an eye? Then whats the best part?

    Lately, my main addiction would have to be aviation. All I have been thinking about lately is flying, watching planes at the airport/air shows, and far off destinations I dream of visiting by plane.

    Here is a shot of one impressive aircraft doing what it does best!

    Hi

    My addiction is doing crazy stuff with fire! Here is an example of something this site prompted me to do after posting an article about burning steel wool. I was all over it almost immediately and suffered the wrath of my wife (who is in the insurance biz) about setting the house on fire! ;-)

    I love Turkish Coffee especially if it is served in one of these, it feels so special.
