August Break :: 8.1.13

1 Aug

Portland Art Museum Mark Building Entrance

My goodness – anyone know where July went? I can hardly believe it’s August Break time again. I wasn’t entirely sure I was in again this year (2012, 2011), but after not carrying my camera around for the better part of a month, I feel it’s time to kick myself into gear. Part of my hesitancy is that I have a backlog of about 1000 photos from Philadelphia, Scottsdale and Vancouver. But I have to face it. That has little to do with taking and posting one photo a day for a month.

One other minor hangup is the August Break is taking a slight turn by giving daily prompts. I think it’s great Susannah is shaking it up, but that didn’t really work for me in February’s endeavor. But then I was catching up with Mortal Muses and the Red Thread post struck me. Firstly, red is my no questions asked favorite color. I haven’t had even a second to watch any of the media they suggest, but I love the idea of finding red every day and weaving a thread through my August Break. So here I go, hacking a couple of themes and prompts into my own pursuit. Wish me luck! I hope you follow along!

    Hello,

    I have to say I felt the same way as you with the whole prompt thing on August break. I mean how many cups of coffee/tea and fruit can you look at right? (first day prompt was breakfast). I for one am trying to get into the swing of it by loosely following the prompts each day. Best of luck on your creative pursuit of Red…i love the one above.
    Cheers,
    Leah

      Thank you, Leah! Best of luck to you on your August Break. I guess the most important thing to remember is there are no rules, and to have fun!
