This is week 26 of my 52 week project.
Affectionately named "PEACE"
I wanted to do something a little quirky/Americana for the upcoming July 4th holiday.
This was not actually my favorite picture from this little photoshoot, but I did love the natural catch lights that the light from my window offered, so I went with it.
I am so happy I've made it to the halfway mark. Even the weeks when the creative juices aren't really flowing, it has been fun and I know I will look back at my "40th" year and appreciate the project.
If anyone else wants to jump on board, you could do a 26 week project and start now.
It's been so much fun and I've really learned alot about myself - mostly all my cosmetic faults, but a few positives too. :)
One thing it has taught me is not to be afraid to jump out and try something new.
I've gotten less uncomfortable (notice I didn't say 'more comfortable', that was intentional) about being photographed and I've learned to be creative with lighting, positioning and styling.
I was perusing my flickr feed and enjoyed looking at the color fun photos from a year or so ago.
Would anyone be interested in doing that again or something similar?
I'd be happy to "host" it on Flickr again.
Those types of challenges are so fun and really make you look around and appreciate the little things.
