Challenge Yourself

After rereading a few of my end of year retrospectives, I realized that from November to February is a dry zone for my art. There are probably a few reasons for that. First, winter hits me hard, the cold, the short days, and don’t get me started on fucking holidays. Second, well, I think that first one is the big reason. So, to combat that, I’ve started a few challenges. One on Facebook, SP’s Weekly Photo Challenge.  The other is on Fine Art America, The Weekly Photography Challenge. I have found that sharing the challenges with others, helps keep me motivated. So, if you find yourself in a rut, take a deep breath, and challenge yourself.

The challenge was Stripes. So, I found a striped shirt of my husbands, and started taking pics. 

My Husband’s Shirt

Then, I put the shirt on and took photos of my hands.

Hands

After that, I realized that I had a striped dress on, so I took this pic.

My Pocket

The hand pics led to a Hands Challenge.

Holding Time

Which then led to a pocket watch challenge.

Time to Read

Next challenge? Books!

One thing leads to another and I’ve been working for 3 weeks straight. So, Challenge Yourself!

Jewelry Up Close

SP’s Weekly Photo Challenge was Jewelry Up Close. We got some great entries. We received some super up close and personal images and gorgeous not so up close images. Some of the images told a story and a few were just pretty.

Stay tuned for images from the next challenge – Some place new.

SP’s Weekly Photo Challenge

SP’s Weekly Photo Challenge was to pick a national day from this calendar and create repetition. Some of the group members did great stuff. I sort of flubbed because, well, reasons (excuses).
