The past few months I have been looking for challenges that push me outside my box - (Writing on my art, journaling on recycled books, being messy) I encountered one such challenge the other day while browsing the Internet. The website is twoscoopz.com and the challenge is called Focus52. Each week, participants (anyone can participate!) are given a prompt which we use to inspire us to take a photo. I love taking pictures but taking a photo based on a prompt is a challenge for me.
The group is no pressure...you only have to share when you want to participate, you are not obligated to post a photo each week if you don't have time, and you are welcome to browse through everyone else's photos anytime. The only rule is you cannot use old photos - the photo must be taken on the week the prompt is given. This week the prompt was 'Get Down' as in, get on the ground and force yourself to take a photo from a different perspective than the one we are normally accustomed to. Here is the photo I ended up submitting for (my) week 1 - I took it in my garden, laying down on the grass.
