Photo Blogging Challenge (May 2016): Outside the box
You would think when I set these challenges up, I would make themes that I figured I’d be all set up to do.
It doesn’t always work out that way, though.
This month, I had some ideas. But with so many things going on, I didn’t get all that I wanted. Still, the theme is intriguing and I am excited to see what others have come up with.
Outside the box can be interpreted so many ways. It can be literal. It can be something totally different. I did a little bit of everything with my photos this month.
Did you think outside the box? I hope so!
Anyway, it’s time to get into it. My selections are below. Remember to link up at the bottom and visit others and hopefully comment!
How many 2 1/2 year olds do you know who show patience? This was from earlier in the month where Cameron was waiting to get some M&Ms. I don’t know about you, but I’d probably have been jumping through the roof for these. So, patience seems to be some outside-the-box thinking here!
Many geocaches are boxes of some sort. With that in mind, there are usually contents inside the box. So here’s a future geocache that I will be placing — with contents outside the box!
3. Virtual 5K
In this day and age, sometimes people have to think outside the box to get exercise. I have joined a few virtual races — of which I walk, not run (maybe at some point I will run them) — and this was the first “prize” that I have received. It’s really a cool way to get people to get out and exercise and part of the entry fee goes to some good charities.
I’m not one for selfies. But at a game one night, I decided to try a different type of selfie — my hand keeping score. This wasn’t easy using my DSLR, either!
For whatever reason, when I’m taking photos of Cameron, I rarely get great smiles. One night, though, I went and delivered some clothes I got for him (Phillies, of course) and after he got the sweatshirt and hat on I asked him for a smile — and he obliged! Talk about going outside the box!
There are my five and I look forward to seeing what others had this month!
If you took part in this month’s challenge, make sure to link up below. And for those of you who participated, make sure you try and get to other people’s blogs and comment (here, too!). Let’s continue to grow this challenge and have a strong community. Come back and check out the others who link later on, too!
Also, don’t forget to get back here tomorrow, June 1, for the June theme!
NOTE: I set up a Facebook group for those who participate in the challenge and are interested. I’ll post any announcements there and hopefully it can be a place where things are discussed and some interaction etc. You can access it here.
