Greetings from the east coast! If you are a regular follower of my work, or know even just a little bit about me, you know that I currently live in Katy, Texas but I am originally from Maine. And it is here in the gorgeous pine tree state where I am now! I am, as they say, “summering in Maine,” here with my family until we need to return to Texas for the start of a new school year. But this post isn’t about Maine. This is about what I did before I escaped the oppressive heat and humidity of Houston and headed east for vacationland.
The month before I left I had challenged myself to pick up my camera everyday for 30 days and capture my life in a sort of day-in-the-life project. Having had many photographer friends do these types of photo challenges, I knew how difficult it can be, and boy was it! I won’t lie, I did not meet my goal of a photo a day, but I got pretty close, and isn’t trying what it’s all about? So I’m delighted to share with you a glimpse into my life during May and June in Katy, Texas.
This project forced me to see things a little differently, try different angles, play with light. It got me to truly look at my surroundings and get creative. Little challenges like this make us better photographers and, in the end, that’s the whole point.
