After a big day out, fun with cousins, lack of a nap, and a drive in the van, my boy was beat and fell fast asleep!
And after 31 days of photo challenge adventuring - I feel pretty much the same way!! I'm beat!!
This was fun but I found this challenge less inspiring then my first photo challenge, last year. I found this one harder to be artistic with the word prompts and not just capture a documentation of the word for the day. The last challenge I found to be more technical, which was great, but also because of that it seemed to lend it's self easier for creative images.
At least, that's my take away from this year's challenge.
Over all, I thought it was still a good exercise to expand my skills as a photographer, both technically and artistically. I also like how these challenges cause me to open my eyes more, to take the time to notice things that I might other wise pass by if I wasn't really looking.
I don't mean that one should 'live behind the lens', for life is more then the captured moments but it's good to slow down, now and again, and really just; see!
Congratulations and well done to everyone who participated - whether you did all, some or just a few I hope you learned a little something....and if nothing else, had a bit of fun!! .

Ah clothes. Well, you all know me...and the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word clothes, is laundry!
Funny eh, my distain for laundry yet it makes it's way into both this year and last year's photo challenges. (see here for last year's day six post)
And it's not that I have any problem cleaning it. Oh no! It's just the chore of sorting it, folding it and putting it all away...that's where it always gets me!
So yes, probably at any given day, you'll find a pile of laundry, like the one above, in my house. But hey, at least it's clean!
Tomorrow - Day 31 - last day! - WHATEVER YOU PLEASE

Okay, so I'm posting another 'cheater' post - the clouds here are too thick tonight and have been pretty much all day. I did venture out to try to see if there was any sign of the moon but alas to no prevail. So I am posting a couple of photos that I took earlier in the month.
I was out one morning...can't remember why exactly...but I looked up and saw the half moon showing it's self in the early light of the day. It was just lovely!
And sorry to call these last two posts 'cheater' posts - but for me, the goal was to take each photo on the day of the prompt but I know that's not how everyone worked the challenge and that's fine! But I wanted to stretch myself in this way.
Only two days left of our challenge! Hang in there!!
Tomorrow - Day 30 - CLOTHES

So...I'm doing it again...sneaking in a post a day later then it states. I was sick again but I'm starting to feel better. But, I was so down and out, that this time I didn't even pick up the camera to snap a shot, so I don't have a photo from yesterday (which is suppose to be today....) to post. What I do have is a little collection of black and white photos I took a while ago to record some baby bits of my youngest gal.
I was just so enamored with her feet one day and wanted to capture those before they got any bigger...and while doing so I also captured a couple more shots of her sweet, chubby, babyness.
Like her elbow creases, wrist creases and sweet baby fingers.
And her toes...again!! But this time all scrunched up and looking like little peas....dangerously edible!
And elbow dimples!!!
Oh baby bits! I love them!! I wanted to get more...like her cinnamon bun belly button, her ears, which I used to think were tiny...but lately they look GIANT! Her sweet button nose and the thigh rolls - LOVE those!! But I haven't captured them on film.......not, yet!
Tomorrow - Day 29 - MOON
