Week 16: Shoot From Your Boots | 2018 Project 52

The idea was shoot from the ground. Hopefully looking up, changing the perspective and view of the subject.

Talk about missing the mark.

I’m a broken record, but more of the same this week: work, work, emails, little bit of yoga, beer, beer, work… no creativity.

Actually, Friday afternoon my brain stopped working. A coworker was helping me and I heard the words coming out of his mouth, but… I did not compute any of it. Ugh.

I did try to get a doggin to play along. But neither one was interested. Mike was making chili and they’d rather be playing sous chef vs America’s Next Top Model. And this image was one I could tolerate. It’s evidence of my life recently too… which is why I’m OK with using it, because it’s authentically me. I come home, put on comfy clothes and keep working. Or stretch into yoga moves. Or drink an adult beverage. Or fall asleep on the couch. Or keep on working. Did I already say that?

At least my new hair brings me joy.


Week 17: Earth Day 
due 04.25.18

So… I assume that everyone around the world  knows about Earth Day… but if you don’t, it’s “an environmental movement to be conscience about what we do to our planet and how we can make a bigger impact as individuals.”

Since Earth Day is April 22, just a few days before our next “due date,” why don’t we capture and share our home planet… in a way that makes YOU happy.

Connect with nature, walk in it, enjoy it… what draws your attention, what things are you seeing for the first time, or for the hundredth time but still makes you smile… lose yourself a little to the ground beneath your feet and just BE. If you’re up for more of a challenge, photograph your favorite place in a new way, with fresh eyes… push yourself to change your perspective or focus… get creative in the outdoors, no matter how big or small.
