On the heels of #aprillove, I spent the month of May watching the world outside come to life after a long harsh winter. It helped that my month started in the hot and dry world of Tucson, AZ. Alas, a month later it is a distant memory! I can’t even remember on which feed it was I discovered this David Suzuki inspired photo challenge, but I’m glad I did. I was far more aware than I would normally be of how the physical world around me affects me every day. Spending 30 minutes a day for 30 days really helps you connect to the things that are important, or maybe it makes you disconnect from the things that aren’t!
The added bonus of any photo challenge is my becoming more proficient at uploading photos to my Instagram account. Still no filters or any fancy edits, except cropping (a necessity as my photos are all taken full frame and I have to cut them down to fit the square format).
I collected all 30 photos and added them to a recent 8.5″ x 11″ Cathy Zielske template. I was delighted to find one so photo dense. Eventually all of my random collections of digital memory pages will be printed off and put in some kind of album. Right now I’m simply focusing on getting the pages made and the rest will come. There is a constant swirl of creative project ideas in my head!
