August Break Picture Update

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.

Reflective questions to consider:

  • What have you stopped and noticed recently?
  • What do you enjoy photographing?
