#OperationShutterbug | History

This past week, the theme for our photography group was “History.”

This photo is a millstone pair that sits on my inlaws property. These stones milled the grains for all the farmers around “back in the day.”

Here are some amazing photos that were shared by participants in the facebook group…

“Another kind of history – a personal one. My grandfather and great-grandfather were born in this Pennsylvania farmhouse.”




“Built in 1930s in a small town in Kalmünz, Germany. . Survived the war… this is a house built in the rocks under the castle of the town.”


“The Courthouse in my home town, Kitzingen, Germany. We got married there in 1992, and took a picture in front of it that day. When we returned in 2011 we took another one in the same spot, and it was fun to compare them when we got back home to Alaska! Different kind of history!”



This coming week, the assignment is TEXTURE

Every week a new theme is announced, then photographers can interpret this theme and upload their own photos in response. This project is open to everyone that loves to take photographs, no matter your skill level.

Where do you share your photos? There are a variety of options:

1. Facebook Group: “Operation Shutterbug.”

2. Blog: If you have a blog, you could share each week or do a wrap up of all the photos at the end of the month – and share your link in the comments section.

3. Instagram: Just upload your photo, play with the filters, add a caption and the hashtag #OperationShutterbug and share it. I’d love for you to tag me @TheFoodieArmyWife

4. Twitter: You can share on Twitter by uploading the photo and use the hashtag #OperationShutterbug. Feel free to tag me @FoodieArmyWife

Every Thursday I will publish the week’s post, and for the next week, you can share YOUR photos! In each week’s post, I’ll share a couple of my favorites from you!
