For the month of August I am participating in the #AugustBreak2014, started by Susannah Conway, like I did last year, in August 2013. I have truly enjoyed taking a break from a weekly blog writing schedule to focus on finding pictures throughout my day. The prompts, that were accompanied by daily emails, forced me to look at my surroundings with a new set of eyes, a new focus.
Looking for words like “soft”, “blue” and “shadow” were fun challenges. Planning out how I would capture “jump” was so much fun, especially when it was at the end of a long work day and it led to so.much.laughter with colleagues!
I have truly enjoyed a focused effort to notice more of my life- to literally stop and smell the flowers (or the sea air). It is my hope to continue to find inspiring photo challenges that will push me outside of my comfort zone as I explore the world through the lens of my iphone (or maybe even my regular old point and shoot camera!).
Reflective questions to consider:
- What have you stopped and noticed recently?
- What do you enjoy photographing?
