Day 18 of the First Thirty-One over at Fourtuitous.com. Today’s challenge was “Close up”, and it will be the last photo I do for this challenge. I have spent eighteen days struggling to keep up with the photo prompts, and to be perfectly honest, I don’t find most of them to be all that interesting. Some of the prompts have led me to take what I consider to be rather interesting photographs, and perhaps ones I wouldn’t have otherwise thought of, such as Slumber, Change, and Growth, but for the most part, I’m just taking “photos”, when I would rather be taking art.
If you have an Instagram account, I recommend searching out other people’s photos, at #firstthirtyone, as some of them are quite good. But this photo challenge, I’m discovering, just really isn’t for me.
On Wednesday of next week, I leave for a conference in the city, and I just simply won’t be able to fulfill some of the prompts for that week. In fact, if I manage to post photos each of those days, I would be surprised, with how busy I’ll be.
So, I leave you with this. It warmed up to +8C today, when we should be having -15C weather. I built a snowman outside, in a t-shirt, and then we built a fire, and had hotdogs with some homemade baked beans I spent the day making. I ended the day with a few glasses of wine at Linda’s house, and after my cup of tea just now, I’m about to head to bed.
