Lauren and I are so happy with the second installment of our instagram challenge, #perception_collection. One of my favorite parts of how both challenges have gone is how much people interact with each other, comment, compliment, and start conversations. It feels like such a kind and passionate community of people that have joined in both times (and many of you returned. yay! that's a good sign, right?) and, really, for me personally I just couldn't ask for more - a challenge with like-minded and supportive people, yes please. 

So last time we pulled pictures from each of the seven days to feature on our blogs which meant I featured a bit more, but with the hectic nature of the summer coming to a close we decided to do just one post this time for both weeks. If you know me, or read this blog, I like to curate so this is a mix of my favorites (i mean they are all my favorites, so how do you choose?), I choose by curating the pictures that I like grouped together and trying to get a good mix of those who participated. With that said, if you joined in and you're not here, it certainly does not mean your photos were my favorites, I left so many that I loved out. There were many amazing photos and many with lovely stories/thoughts/quotes with them. So thank you so much to everyone who participated and to so many of you who followed each other, liked each others photos and sent a kind word or two to your fellow instagramers! Our next one will be sometime in October, we will get word out when we set a date.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I am going to see Frozen sing-a-long movie in the park tonight with my boys, my BFF and her kids as a little pre-birthday celebration for M+L. They will be 6 on Tuesday, ohmygosh.

You can see Lauren's picks from the challenge here


  1. very well curated! i love the words you selected, they really challenge creativity and perspective. i'm looking forward to participating in the next challenge.
    p.s. have a magical time at the sing-a-long. it sounds WONDERFUL

  2. wow, so many gorgeous shots! and i must say you did a fabulous job curating them christine. i love them all but i'd say my favorite two groups are simple // leading lines and distortion // repetition. so much photography inspiration. have a wonderful weekend!

  3. These are beautiful and so expressive, and wonderfully curated by you. Have a lovely weekend!

  4. wow, so interesting to see which pictures you chose...

  5. Beautiful! Bummed I missed it again but the use of a # intimidates me (I still don't know what it means). Wonderful picks! Lauren's shot is my favourite. Happy Birthday to your munchkins on Tuesday. 6 is a biggie!

  6. It was so neat to see all the different interpretations of the prompts - thanks for putting this together!

  7. Christine,
    I was so thrilled to take part in this challenge. And pleasantly surprised to find one of my shots included here on your post. Thanks so much for doing this with Lauren and I can't wait for the Oct. Challenge. Meanwhile, happiness to your little ones in school and I know they're doing very well.
