We’re almost at the end of the first month in my new year-long challenge and after 27 days of daily photos I am happy to report that it is still fun. 🙂 I’m enjoying the freedom to try some new things after spending a year exploring the random settings in Hipstamatic and looking back at this set of seven photos I can see a definite trend toward softer hues. Maybe it’s the season, maybe it’s a desire for soft focus after long days filled with challenges but it’s nice to stretch a little and see my world through rose-colored glasses.
Sunday started with heavy spring rains but as soon as the skies cleared I dashed outside to capture my earliest blooming rhododendrons at their peak. Monday afternoon this sign reminded me of how John and I met and that love can really come from unexpected moments. Tuesday was long but ended on a nice note with this pretty view of the ferry landing as the sun set. No fiery colors for me this night just calming hues of blue and gray. Wednesday Finn reminded me of a stereotypical nosy neighbor as he insisted on peering over the fence to spy on someone and Thursday I picked up my OlloClip to play with shadows in the backyard. Friday needed a little extra coffee and Saturday John and I each took a deep breath and put our new gym membership to good use. It’s been far to long since I’ve seriously worked out but new habits just need one day to start so we’re giving it our best shot. I spent an hour in the cardio room and have to say, it felt great. 🙂
Coming soon I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from the first week of March and if you’d like to follow along in real-time I post my daily photos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. If a once-a-week blog read is more your speed my weekly recaps will continue here along with caption notes containing editing information for each photo.
