I got invited on Facebook to the #challengeonnaturephotography by a friend recently. You are nominated by a friend to post seven days of nature pictures, while also nominating a new person each day you do this.
To be completely honest, I saw flashbacks of failed Amish friendship bread going through my mind. I'm supposed to share this thing with seven other friends? Then add flour each day to my starter, then keep it at room temperature, then divide it, then add more stuff, ahhhhhhhhhh! Sure the bread was great once you made it, but a rigmarole to get there! Then if you don't share it, you end up eating Amish friendship bread forever. And heaven forbid you wanted Amish friendship bread but didn't have a friend to share a starter with you! Never did a more lonely feeling exist. Any-who....
I decided I wanted to make the challenge a little more personal. I wanted to post a picture I had taken and the project inspired by it. So much of my work is influence by nature and the creation surrounding me. Everywhere I look, I see inspiration.
Though I haven't yet finished my full seven days, I am enjoying the process. The catalyst behind this was to get more images of nature circulating on social media, something I'm completely supportive of. I hope it has achieved that, and perhaps even, inspire people to take more notice of nature.
So check it out. Google #challengeonnaturephotography and take a few minutes to be awed.
