It seems like months come and go, don’t they?
This past month, I actually took a lot of photos. Not all were vibrant, but I was out with the camera. And it was oh so glorious. But on the other hand, I didn’t stay on top of the group with reminders and all that and all of a sudden … it was the night before we needed to post!
So far, the turnout for April was a tad lower that usual. I thought it was going to be a good theme, but … it’s been a dreary spring in some parts, so maybe that’s why. Not a lot of vibrant things maybe?
Now it’s May, though.
The spring is kind of here in my parts. We’ve had some colder days, some warmer days and days in between. But getting out with the camera is something I’ve been trying to do as much as possible. The theme this month can be interpreted several different ways. It’s also pretty open ended, which is hopefully a way people can really get into it this month.
So how about that new theme? First, there’s always some housekeeping things:
So, here’s how it works.
- See the theme (first day of the month);
- Take photos throughout the month (don’t use old ones!);
- Select five photos and create a blog post;
- Come back here and link up on the final day of the month;
- Hopefully go visit and comment on other blogs.
That’s it. There’s no rules on equipment or anything else. Blog posts can be short and to the point, or in-depth. Interpret the themes as you see fit.
The one big rule?
This month’s theme? Outside the box. Interpret how you see fit and enjoy it! If you know others who might enjoy this challenge, pass it along. Please make sure your blog post publishes Tuesday, May 31. Then come back here and link up.
