My daughter tagged me on Facebook to do a Black and White Photo Challenge a little while ago. The challenge was to post a black and white photo every day for five days. When she first tagged me, I simply didn’t have enough time to get it done. I wasn’t spending much time with my camera or my computer except for mostly “work” related things, but I put it in the back of my mind and determined to get to it. And I did and will post the five photos today.
When I first saw the tag, I kind of cringed internally because I really didn’t have time for it, but ultimately I was glad for the tag. It got me out with my camera and thinking about what to do during this kind of difficult time between fall and real winter when things outside are rather dull. I have found over the years that if you look hard enough, there is always something interesting to be seen. But the simple practice of inspiration is often not that easy to come by and a little push is appreciated.
So starting in January (or maybe before), I think I might embark on a Fifty-two Week photo project. Problem is I am not sure what theme I want to go with. I did one a few years back when I took a Purple Monkey with me everywhere and got him into all sorts of situations. He’s here on my Flickr site. But what to do next… If you have a suggestion, I’m more than willing to consider it. Meanwhile, I am going to do my best to not let the hype of the Season get me down.
Yes, I'm bad at math, but I do know there are more than five photos here. There are a couple of rejects amongst them.
