We also finished our first week with the instagram challenge. It's been so much fun. The reason I personally wanted to do it was because I love taking photos, and I wanted a reason to take more, and more purposeful ones at that. It's definitely helped. I often drive by something and think "i should pull over" or "that would be a great photo" or "i should go 'here' to take some pictures" - but I rarely act on it. This has been the push I needed to do those things. And I am hoping that it will become my instinct and habit, rather than falling back on excuses for not doing so. I think I mentioned that Lauren and I were prepared for it to be pretty small group for our first time, but that it in fact turned out to have quite the little following. With that we decided to split the featured photos into two weeks rather than one. And still. It was so hard to choose which photos to feature. It was like trying to pick a favorite child (and having three I can tell you, you really do love all your children equally, even if differently), this was a nearly impossible task. Having said that, I have already started collecting photos from the second week. So check back next Monday too when we feature the second half of the challenge photos. Also be sure to visit Lauren at Still+Life today and see her picks. And thanks so much to everyone that has joined along! If you haven't joined and want to, you are more than welcome to join anytime, play catch-up, or just pick a couple of prompts. You can see more info here and check out all the photos in the collection here.
