This week's theme for the "finding me" challenge was a bit more challenging for me. I took several photos of different items ranging from my orange at breakfast to both of my boys' legos. I decided to try one last item and that is what I ended up staying with which is my son's keyboard. There really isn't a great story behind the significance of this particular photo. I am trying to step away from portraits for the challenge since that is what I do for clients and just shoot what I see around me. It has been a lot of fun seeing everyone's interpretation for this week's theme because they are all so very different. Check out my friend Brandi's close up photo!
I am doing two separate photo challenges this year. They are both a 52 week challenge meaning I have a new theme each week. Sometimes the themes happen to be the same and sometimes they are different. This week they happen to be the same, "white". The photo I did for this theme is of my youngest kiddo, E, and his special snuggle buddy, sheepie. He has had this little white sheep since he was two and although she is one of several snuggle buddies, she is the favorite. She has been with us on all of our family vacations and she gets to visit my parents when the boys spend the night there. I know that this stage in E's life will be over soon but sheepie is one of those things I plan to tuck away for safe keeping.
In the upcoming weeks I will be sharing the rest of my challenge photos as well as links to some of my friends blogs that are doing the Finding Me Challenge as well. Look for those in the near future. Also feel free to click the like button to the right and follow my facebook page as well.
So last year I attempted to do a daily photo challenge for the month of January. I lasted 13 days. Yep, not even half of the month. So this year I thought I would take it a little easier on myself and do a new theme once a week. You know give myself some cushion for when life gets busy and I barely have time to think much less pick up my camera. Well I couldn't just stick with one, no I got "pulled" into two different ones. So lucky for me sometimes the themes will be overlapping within the week but others won't be. The first week of January consisted of the theme new for one and sparkle and shine for the other. For those of you who know me personally know the words sparkle and shine aren't in my vocabulary so I had to really think about that one. The theme new however, was fairly easy. It's a new year, I have new goals, new motivation and a new calendar! So that is what I decided to use first.
The second photo is just a quick snap with my phone of a Christmas ornament I bought myself for our tree. I never buy new ornaments, outside of the ones we buy every year for our boys, but I "splurged" this year and bought myself a shiny sparkly camera! I guess the theme new carries into this post in another way as well since this blogging thing is new to me and this is my very first post! Check back each week for a new themed photo and let's see if I can stick with it for the year!
