A funny thing happened on the journey of doing the weekly photo challenge.
I lost my focus.
Not the focus on my camera–the focus of what I thought I was supposed to be doing.
See, I thought the challenge was like an assignment–something to pick up my camera and go do once I got the much anticipated challenge in my inbox on Friday.
I would give myself until Thursday to complete the challenge because I thought that I should be looking around my world for opportunities to complete said challenge.
Somewhere along the way I lost my way.
I noticed that folks were immediately posting photos.
Oh. I’m slow to pick up on things sometimes, but it eventually dawned on me that lots of you were not going out with fresh eyes, but you were searching through your old photos and posting immediately.
I ignored that for awhile, but then I felt pressure to get a photo up immediately lest no one would look at it. Humph.
I guess that’s why I haven’t posted a photo the last few weeks. Somehow the purpose of the challenge was lost for me.
Then, today, we got the Today Challenge. YES. Instruction to not look through photo archives.
Instruction to pick up our cameras and record TODAY.
I love it, and here is my record from TODAY.
GG#4 twirling a marshmallow in orange sugar sprinkles. She picked red for me.
TODAY was a good day.
