This summer has been flying by, hasn’t it?
It seems like every season starts to fly by. I’m ready for life to slow down a little and let me kind of sit back. The problem is when the nice months come, we tend — as people — to pack in so many things to do that it makes time fly by.
Life’s too short for that.
And I hope to look at everybody’s posts from July when I get back from my current vacation, which is being spent watching baseball in, I’m sure, hot weather. So hopefully, I’ll be able to come back to cooler weather and see some great posts!
I had a lot of fun with this month and actually had to cut a bunch of photos to get down to my five. So let’s get working on August and see what we can come up with, shall we?
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? Black and White. It’s been a few years since we did this theme and we have some new people, so I think it’s a perfect time to do this. 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 Wednesday, August 31. Then come back here and link up.
If you think you are going to take part in this, drop a comment below so we can see who all might be trying to tackle this challenge!
There is also a Facebook group for those who are interested.
