LensProToGo’s challenge for week 3 is “Favorites”.* I posted last about what has quickly become a favorite of mine: New York City. To be true to their challenge I should to follow their guidelines…what do I love so much that I would want to save it above all else if my house were on fire (assuming all family and pets would escape unharmed). I knew immediately what that was…is…
My scrapbook albums and digital photo books.
These are our family’s memories, wrapped in pretty bindings and journaled with clever sayings and remembrances. When we’re old and grey and introducing ourselves to each other every day we’ll have these books to look back on and maybe spark a memory somewhere in the recesses. We have had such a blessed life and to document that is a privilege for me that I am really just beginning to take seriously.
May I never have to prove myself. May the shelf these books are on collect dust and more and more pages.
If you’d like a weekly challenge to spark your own creativity behind the lens head on over to LensProToGo and get involved with their Project52 (See their button on the left there?)! I’ve got at least three friends playing along with me. There’s a Flickr group and they post reminder blog posts and they’re even going to give a prize to everyone who participates. Woot! To me, the challenge and being able to expand my creative mind throughout the year is really the prize though.
