The other day, I was bemoaning the fact that I hopped on the Instagram train a bit late and missed most of those photo challenges everyone used to do – I’m always talking about how I don’t take pictures enough, and a photo challenge would be the perfect thing to encourage me to snap more pics. Then, as if by magic, this black & white photo challenge started popping up all over the place (although this one seems to be mostly on Facebook, which…lame). So, I decided to participate…except I’m going to participate in blog form, instead of on Instagram (or more weirdly, Facebook).
Side note: Is it weird that these things are referred to as “challenges”? I think so; yes. Taking 7 photos in 7 days is hardly a challenge…anyway, I digress.
Here’s the challenge: “Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation.” Okay…so it’s a wee bit pretentious, and not the most exciting “challenge” I’ve seen…those themed picture every day challenges were a lot more interesting (and actually somewhat of a challenge, I suppose). But I’ll take it…plus, since it’s so easy, I should be able to handle it without dropping out 3 days in. Here goes – I’ll be posting two photos today (one for yesterday, and one for today).
