I’d like to start this post by saying that Mrs. Rev told me that “mail” was a “lame” subject to end on. Or was it “weak sauce”? I can’t recall now which defining word she used but I must say I agree. And I apologize. But after thinking about this for five days now I realize I have no flippin idea what I would have changed it to. So “mail” it remains.
Here is my mail:
A self-portrait. That makes all my neighbors think that I’m a little off my rocker. So glad they didn’t drive by when I was trying to photograph a fork in the middle of the street. It could have ended really badly if they had [because I was laying in the middle of the street… maybe]. The hubs was my spotter – I questioned his alertness that afternoon.
I don’t know how many of you have actually shot all 52 subjects but me and Mrs. Rev have. And since she’s two miles from me we are celebrating. With cake, no less. (Right? We’re still doing cake? I’ll settle for a cocktail but cake has my name written all over it. So does the Comfy Cow – I hold no prejudice to ice cream whatsoever.)
I’m also going to give myself a little break and be challenge free for a while. I’m hoping to come up with something really fun for the next challenge but if not, a new list of 52 can be born. (We shall see.) Of course, please don’t let me put a damper in your photography challenge. Start your own challenge, encourage friends to participate, create a new Flickr group – it’s easy, it’s fun and sharing is caring. (Sharing is caring? Ignore me. I don’t know where that came from.)
I do hope to give myself little projects to keep me occupied until a new challenge begins. Or tag along on others’ photography ideas. But nothing as committed as an entire year – that’s 365 days, people… not happening right now. At least not until the new year. But for now, go check out how other challengers captured “mail” in our flickr group.
Cheers to the end of a good thing, my friends!
