I have decided to try to take at least one picture a day and am looking for inspiration through various photo-a-day challenges and a handy phone app that reminds me to take a picture each day. This challenge, posted by Kim and part of the #sdawpphotovoices caught my attention because it is a list of verbs (and an abecedary nonetheless!). How does one take a picture of a verb? It has made me look at everyday objects differently this week, that is for sure.

Today’s word was climb. I needed to reach my daily 10,000 step goal and so my friend Lauren and I went on a walking adventure through our beautiful city. We explored Old Town and Seaport Village. All around town I took note of what was climbing, that is, when I wasn’t busy climbing hills and steps myself. Below are some pictures that represent #climb.   I hope you enjoy!

What a great climbing tree!

    Amy, I love your “climb” photo essay! I’m always trying to find new ways to look at the world around us…and you definitely captured the spirit of this month’s challenge (and it’s only the first week!). It will be fun to see what the rest of this month of “action” has in store for us all!

  2. Instead of looking for an app to remind you to take a picture, try just programming a reminder that will text you every day at a specific time. I just set one to go off around lunch that says “Make smart choices!” to remind me of my goal to lose a few pounds before my sister’s wedding.

    Now back to the topic at hand! I enjoy your pictures. They remind me of a project I had to do in a digital literacy course. We had to choose one word and create a photo slide show where we went from a very abstract meaning of the word to the most specific one. It would be a great activity for students – it really stretches your thinking. Another picture project I love is the five picture story. There are tons of them posted on Flickr. They are really fun to look at as well.

    Keep up the good work, and Happy New Year!
