I know, I know. I totally lost track of the 365 day photography challenge and here we are a year later with a very incomplete 365. So I want to try again. I had fun with it last time, but things got busy and I lost track of time and couldn’t keep up.
We’ll use the same list but I am only going to post 1 photo per week, rather than trying to keep up with a new photo every day. So Instead of a 365 Day Photography Challenge, it will now be a 52 Week Photography Challenge!
And I know this IS a couple days early, but I am giving ya’ll a head start here!
The same rules apply:
- Take your time. Decide what you want to take pictures of. You have an entire week to prepare. However, try not to wait until the last minute so that you feel rushed.
- Be creative. Set up the shot and express yourself. Everyone sees things unique to themselves. How do you want the image to be seen?
- Have fun! Photography has always been fun for me. Even as a child. It is important to enjoy what you are photographing because your mood can effect the quality of your image.
Once you take your photo you can upload it and post a link in the comments of that week’s blog post, OR #ErynneNicole on Instagram.
To restart this 365 Day Photogaphy Challenge / 52 week Photography challenge the theme shall be… drum roll please…
This image is full of lines. Look at it:
Up, down, sideways they are everywhere. It is perfect for this theme. Here is how it came to be:
I was at the Laundromat this afternoon. It was almost empty and I was bored. I was thinking about the theme I had decided on and I realized how many lines were in front of me. I was honestly a little shocked it took so long for me to notice. So I took out my camera, I second guessed this decision for mere moments before I made the personal decision to take more pictures in public with no obvious purpose (we’ll see how long that lasts). I decided that in this moment the odd looks 2 other people in the building were giving me was worth it.
I love this laundromat. I mean honestly, if I have to go to one, it has to be this one. It is owned by this sweet older woman. She always greets me with a smile and asks how things are going. The inside and outside of the building are a bit grungy looking, but the owner works hard to maintain cleanliness within. The truth is that it’s an old building and it is showing it’s age, with the exception of the washers and dryers which are newish. With age, as with most things, there is no escaping the grunge that develops.
Spend the week thinking about “Lines” and how you want to portray them. There is no right or wrong. Everyone has their own unique perception of how it could be displayed. I would really love to see what you come up with, so please post a link in the comment section below or post it on Instagram. If you post to instagram make sure to caption it with the week’s theme and tag me @ Erynne_Nicole and add a #ErynneNicole !
