This is my seventh year doing the Daily Photo Challenge every single day – with a few exceptions. In January 2016, I started it all with just challenging myself to take a photo of something interesting or creative every day….then, in January 2017, I came across the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day group where I got a topic list at the beginning of each month from this lady in Australia and people all over the world posted photos they took representing the same topic each day and have been doing that ever since! Sometimes I add limited run or seasonal things, like Lenten Daily Photos or Advent Daily Photos or Black and White Challenges or others I happen to come across.
I have enjoyed doing it…..it has, for the most part, given me a nice creative outlet! But, at times, I find myself just snapping anything that could fit the topic without getting creative or using something from my archives – technically not against the rules – the group doesn’t specify that the photo has to be taken THAT day, but it was my personal rule…..broken from time to time.
Anyway — for a while now, I’ve felt like it is FORCED…..boring…….not something I find creative or enjoyable anymore….and my photos reflect it!!! So…….I finished out the month of August and decided to take a break for a while and see if I miss it……maybe I’ll go back to just snapping photos of things that catch my eye cause they are interesting or creative or just fun – I don’t know – we’ll see if I can give it up or not!!! LOL But, for now, as Ross Geller would say, “I’m on a BREAK!” 🙂
That is NOT to say I’m taking a break from blogging or posting photos…..just a break from the Daily Challenge! So, keep checking for new posts and see what I come up with!
