A while ago I told you about my resolves for this year.
So far I have completed number 2. I made it trhough the month of January with a small stone each day…including a photo.
I am working on numbers 1,3,4,5,6 and 9. Number 10 is just fun to do !!!
Numbers 7 & 8 are in the planning stages…
But this post is about Numbers 3 & 4, which are also turning out to be fun. Both are 365 day photo challenges. And I am learning a lot. I have started new pages where I add the photos as I take them. You can check them out if you want.
Number 4 [365 day self-portrait photo challenge].
This is very challenging for a couple of reasons. Firstly you have to mix it up a lot when you can only take a photo of the one thing over and over again. Secondly it is making me take a look at myself. And find the good. I hate photos of me, so it seemed an odd challenge to take on I know. Yet I find myself changing how I look at the physical side of me. Growing old shouldn’t be about hiding away the physical changes our bodies go through. And yet all too often it is.
Doing this challenge has really stretched me at times. And I am only at the beginning of it.
I am finding things to make me smile though, and I haven’t done that in a long time when looking a recent images of me.
Here are the pages for this challenge:
This is the latest photo I shared for the challenge.
I have wanted to try a typography portrait for a while. It is not exactly what I wanted but it is a start at mastering GIMP and hopefully by the end of the challenge it will get better.
I used a poem of my own for the words.
