Kaitlin(http://www.homemakerdesign.ca/) ended our photo challenge with one last request: that we choose our favorite photo from the 30 days, tell why it is our favorite, and talk a little about how this photo challenge impacted us. So here goes:
This was definitely my favorite! It is a cool angle and a nice reflection of sun that just looks neat.
I learned through this photo challenge, that photography is an art medium I am interested in. Although I took some photos that were the normal tree scapes and people pictures, this particular one interested me because it was a different way of looking at a very common place thing. As I went through my days this last month, I had my eyes open for new angles, new techniques, new ways of looking at things. My camera is a point and shoot, but it has potential for so much more. I learned that too this month. Maybe someday I will buy a fancy shmancy camera but for now this one does plenty.
Maybe there is a message for me in all this too. Our lives are not as cut and dry as they may seem. We have so much potential to do big things for Christ but maybe we are just going around taking surface shots, just looking at whats comfortable and easy, not digging deep and looking at all the potential that is in ourselves and others.
I've learned this month, that when I'm taking pictures, I need to be more aware, more observant, and ready to stretch my horizons. I think I can apply that to life too.
