This year I’m participating in three different photography challenges. I know, I know. I do this every year and by the middle of February I tap out. Well, this year is different. These are 52 week projects, so I’m only obligated to take 3 photos a week instead of 1 photo a day. You see, the problem with 1 photo a day is there’s a lot of pressure. And that pressure can be overwhelming, especially when you want to make sure that the photos you post are decent.

With these projects, I’m easing the pressure and focusing less on perfection and more on picking up my camera {last year, I went months without shooting anything} and being creative. I also want to do a better of job of documenting my life. Looking back, that’s probably one of my biggest regrets: I didn’t take enough pictures of my kids when they were little and I didn’t take enough pictures of The Hubs and me through the years. I want to change that.

So here they are: pictures from the challenges and the memories attached…

Week 15 Negative Space {living outside the stacks}

I had to dip into my archives for this one. I’ve been dealing with tooth pain, so I haven’t gone out and taken too many new photos.

Off Prompt

Week 15 Off Prompt {living outside the stacks}

I actually had a photo for this prompt {on the phone} but I couldn’t get permission from the subject to use it. So, I went off prompt and shared a photo of this little guy who was hanging out on the back steps of the library.

If you’re on Instagram, I’d love for you to give me a shout out. I’m @DaenelT. And if you’re a book lover, I post book photos using @livingoutsidethestacks.
Happy Snapping,
