Month in Photos

I stumbled acrossthis blog the other day that challenges people to take a photo a day and share it. I’ve seen people doing this, but I wasn’t really fond of the idea for some reason.
I decided to cave in and do it.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized that not only it will be something really cool to look back on, but it is a great way to be intentional with your day!

Probably even more powerful and more of an inspiration to this endeavor is this video Stephen showed me about a month ago: Jeff Harris: 4,748 Self-Portraits and Counting. At first glance it sounds/looks super conceited and self centered, but trust me. Give it a shot. It’s very beautiful, really. I don’t want to spoil it by saying anything more.

Anywho, Photo a Day. I missed January, so I’m starting with February. Hopefully this will inspire me to get a working camera!

P.S. I am a week in and have decided I would rather take pictures of things other than buttons, etc, so I’m changing it : )

P.P.S. Most of these pictures are from pinterest, blogs, etc. That is because I don’t have a camera besides my phone, so I’ll be waiting to post anymore month-in-photos until I get a new one : )
