Two posts in one day – I know, I have gone mad…….
This month I am going to be participating in a photography challenge (is that the right term???) called “Picture the Holidays”. The participants receive a prompt every day to interpret with our cameras. We got our very first prompt today, here is what it said:
With the giving of thanks still fresh in our hearts and minds, let’s start off our month from the best place possible: a place of gratitude.
Take a few minutes to focus on all the things you have to be grateful for today and then, choose a perspective in which to capture at least one of those things in a photograph.
Note: You can be as literal or abstract as you want here. If you are just happy to have a warm cup of tea at this point, then shoot that! If you’re thankful for a feeling or a state of mind, then challenge yourself to translate it visually. There is no right or wrong way to capture what you’re thankful for as long as you shoot with a grateful heart.
Here are my interpretations of the prompt (taken with the iPhone and processed with Instagram):
Grateful for the brilliant light shining through the last of the autumn leaves.
And also grateful for blooms in winter (courtesy of the lovely camellia plant).
