I challenged myself even more this week. I decided I wanted to capture this week’s photo with my 50mm. I’ve been playing favorites with my 35mm and the zoom’s got me tricked up – I needed to familiarize myself with it again. And I wanted to find the blue at home.
That last one was a little harder than I thought.
I had so many photos to choose from. I had wandered from room to room in search for something blue. All lovely in their own regard but one just made me smile a little more than the others.
Here is my blue:
A handmade banner that spells out “shutterboo.” In my logo’s font. In my blog’s color. A gift from Wendipants when fate had her land at the Louisville International Airport in May.
It was extremely thoughtful of her and I was surprised that she put so much effort into making something for someone she’s never met. But I love it. And it hangs across my shelf that holds my shutterboo goodies. (Some may call them marketing materials… I call them goodies.) It’s not just a reminder of what I’ve created for myself this year, but a reminder that people, especially people like Wendi, like to love bomb. And love bombing is a good thing.
It’s also a reminder that I felt so dumb for only having a bag of modjeskas to gift to her. Way to make it special, Brooke. Although to be fair, modjeskas are pretty fabulous.
Don’t forget to check out the Flickr group – I always smile when I see so many people are still pushing through the challenge. A year is a long time. A photo each week is harder than you think. And we’re keeping at it on the regular. Now we move on to Week 44. And our new subject will be HALF. Me thinks I need to put on my creative hat and have fun with this one.
