"The reason why we want to remember an image varies: Because we simply 'love it', or dislike it so intensely that it becomes compulsive, or because it has made us realize something about ourselves, or has brought about some slight change in us. Perhaps the reader can recall some image after seeing of which has never been quite the same."

Thats why I love...

doing our weekly scavenger hunt;

At the beginning of each week I always start off feeling stressed out and full of anxiety.  Thinking to myself "these 5 items are impossible, forget about...I'm skipping this week!" This is exactly how I felt this week..."leading lines," I felt was nearly impossible...I live in the suburbs and lets face it, there just aren't any *pretty* lines around here that could be followed. Then, "feet," seriously, I've never photographed feet before, so I felt this would never happen.  And trying to coerce Maddie or Jason to get their pictures taken lately has been a challenge in itself :P  Lastly the one I've been struggling with is "sight!" Really, how the hell does one photograph sight?!?  So, I've been pondering much over this one especially and hope to come up with a descent shot for this topic!

So the point in this posting...I'm so glad that I get the chance to be part of our weekly scavenger hunt.  I'm so new to photography, & this is such an excellent way to challenge myself both intellectually, because I like to think "outside of the box," regarding each item & of course photographically, because I wouldn't be running around like a lunatic trying to photograph darling daughter's feet otherwise! 

Can't wait till Sunday to see if this week's been a photog success or complete failure.  (& heck, if it is a failure, there's always next week!)

  1. You always pull something together! I haven't even started the hunt this week. I figured I'll throw it together at the last minute. The good news is that it's not a competition...just a way to push the limits.
