As I mentioned in my post an alternate route, I was unable to complete the photo a day in may photo challenge. Ever since I started experiencing the beauty and connection I feel with a camera in hand, as well as reading about inspiring photographers and their photo challenges, I’ve always wanted to try one. This particular photo challenge didn’t work out for me for a variety of reasons. I didn’t do well with the timeline because it was too hard to work, be a mom, get my rest, and then go out and find/photograph the word of the day. As I have thought about it more, that was one of the main challenges for me. I felt pressure to capture the daily word. This didn’t work for me. I needed more time to feel what that word meant to me and what would capture it fully. So I guess the conclusion I came to was this..
1. I prefer to capture something I deem beautiful in the moment and then label an emotion to it as I view it later.
2. I don’t do well with timelines, especially daily ones.
3. I would love to try some type of photo challenge that had one word for a month.
So, this post includes the photos I did take that represented the daily words. It is not in the right order, it s not complete from where I left off on Day 9, but it completes this photo challenge in a way that feels right to me.
