365 Challenge – Week 4

365 Challenge – Week 4

I know I’m a few days late but I haven’t had a chance to edit at work. ūüėČ ¬†Here are my pics from last week. ¬†I’m currently working from home today since it’s a SNOW DAY but I’ll blog about that tomorrow! (and include some pics!)

I love this tree. It is down the street from my office. One day last week when school was cancelled I stopped on my way to work to snap a quick pic.

My little yard frog. He’s seen better days for sure. We had a light dusting of snow.

A guy Matt knows said this cute little guy was scaring his kids and he was going to have to get rid of it. I told Matt to tell him we’d take it. Now I just need an Auburn one.

365 Challenge

365 Challenge

What is a 365 Challenge you ask? ¬†Well it’s when you commit to doing a certain thing everyday for a year. ¬†In my case it’s a photography challenge. ¬†The goal is to help me get better with my camera and take better pics. ¬†Now, with that said, I’m only 13 days into my challenge and I haven’t quite taken a pic a day. Guys, let me tell you, this is hard! ¬†So instead of giving up on the idea I’ve decided to stick with it in a less rigid fashion. ¬†I WILL take 365 pictures this year but some days I make take 2 and a skip a few days of actual photography. ¬†I feel like this will still help me accomplish my goal without completely burning me out.

Part of the problem too, is my lack of confidence in stopping the car to take a pic.  I am much more confident to do this when I have someone with me, but being on my own tends to be quite difficult.  Not to make excuses, but as a child I was pretty shy and still am to a point.  It takes me a little while in new situations to warm up.  Stopping to take a pic definitely puts me outside my comfort zone.  Hopefully this challenge will also help with this as well.

I’m going to try and do these posts on Mondays starting today.

I liked all 3 of these and I couldn’t decide.
