I did finish, I promise, and the daily proof lies over on Instagram, but I failed to make my way back over here to post my last two August Break photos…. until now. Very anti-climactic of me! (You aren’t surprised, are you? I’m not surprised.)
This is the first year that I participated in the August Break, and going into it I knew it was exactly what I needed. I was already taking photographs almost every day, but this photo challenge pushed me creatively and also introduced me to a whole new group of lovely people (via Instagram and across the blogosphere). I was much more present on Instagram than I was here on my blog, and I did not make it to nearly as many other blogs as I had intended. But the ease and immediacy of Instagram won me over. My phone is almost always with me, and so I can post photos immediately in seconds no matter where I am. Somehow making my way onto the computer each day to post photos here on the blog is just not as easy. Although it’s also not as hard as I sometimes like to think it is! I just need to make time and space for it.
Note: The photo above of the calendar was created using the Collect app and includes all my Instagram photos from the August Break challenge. I just started using this app, and so far I love it. It’s another great tool for looking back and reflecting on memories and moments and days. And that is the reason I made photography such a high priority this year. I don't want to forget any of this.
