Photo Blogging Challenge (January 2017): Express yourself
Where I am, it’s been pretty chilly. I went out for a walk last night and I can say it was quite brisk out. But that’s OK as it’s kind of part of living in the Northeast this time of year.
That being said — this month flew by. One month down in 2017 and it already is moving along fast. I didn’t get out as much as I wanted with the camera, but I think I got some images that can express things well enough.
This is an interesting theme for the month and I’ll look forward to seeing what others come up with. Heck, I need to get around to visit the December posts, as well as the last several days of the 20 Days of Chill. It might take me a little bit … but I will get to them out!
Anyway, the new year is here and we’re approaching a milestone for this challenge! So hopefully, you’ll keep with us and we can find a way to keep it growing!
OK, with all that out of the way, let’s get to my five for the month!
1. New lens
Obviously, I like to express myself through photography. Over the holidays, I rented a lens (8-14 wide angle/fish eye) and it was the fourth or fifth time I rented it. I know it’s not a full walk-around lens, but I love it. So instead of renting from here on out, I opted to just purchase it so it is mine. I love it.
2. Hungry, hungry hippo!
Cameron sure is growing and he expresses himself in many ways. I’d like to point out that I got him that shirt … and this game. So it’s my hope he expresses himself in many ways as he grows up. Always good to be the spoiling uncle/godfather!
My niece has used soccer for a way to express herself since she was a tiny one. Her college team this year won the national championship and she received her ring. She also chose her next college for the final two years of college, so hopefully success follows.
Cameron, as noted, expresses him self in several ways. Here, he’s playing a game he got for Christmas. But even better … note the cape he is wearing (superhero) and the dinosaur on his shirt. He loves being a dinosaur.
I love nature for photos. It’s like the world expressing itself just in time for an image!
There are my five and I look forward to seeing what others had this month!
