Picture the Holidays

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).

  1. The last Autumn leaves are always bittersweet for me, which makes them a wonderful thing to be thankful for. I am also thankful that you decided to share them (and to remind me to enjoy them while they are still out!). Fantastic shots.

I appreciate all comments - thanks so much!
