As I mentioned yesterday, I will belatedly share images for the days I missed so far for the February Photo A Day Challenge, brought to life by Fat Mum Slim.
Last year with MUCH effort I was finally able to succesfully complete a 365 challenge: photographing daily from July 2010 - July 2011. I think my first attempt at this challenge, which I stumbled upon in Flickr, was in 2008.
Next year, I will attempt to face the challenge once again of 365 days of blogging, and since it seems a natural thing to do (at least for me! lol) I might as well do a 365 days of photographing. :)
In the meantime, I am grateful for "mini-challenges" like February Photo A Day Challenge to keep me sharp and limber!
Many things which seems daunting eventually become simpler the more you practice doing it.
I had the same train of thought, when I commented on a friend's blog yesterday:
What I am doing with blogging (and with life :D) is keeping it simple, and focusing on what I truly love and what gives me and my family joy. Somehow, expressing oneself creatively (and living life!) comes easier when you do both: simplify and focus.
Another reason to blog regularly! Positive behaviour definitely gets reinforced in this way. Promise.
Now, back to those images I would like to belatedly share.
It seems serendipitious that I stumbled upon the challenge, just as I was going back to photographing daily. Since the 365 project of 2010/2011, when the camera was almost an extension of my arm, I took it less and less with me after Summer 2011, and I could say I did not take much if any pictures at all the entire month of January.
I think I needed the break, and now feel rejuvenated and inspired to share how I view life through the lens.
