Frame For Frame

I have come to realise that I am not a natural photographer. Don't get me wrong, I love taking pictures, at any possible opportunity really, and really really enjoy looking back on them- you never know what you may have captured in the moment. Unfortunately though, from taking part in this photography challenge I can't help but look back upon my collection of snaps, with a little disappointment.  Now, obviously, we are all our own biggest judge and critique from ones self is usually rather hard and some what sobering, but seriously though… I thought I would have done a little better than this!

Now please forgive my negativity, I by no means wish to put you off this post! Feel free to have a nosey at what struck a chord with me day to day and pulled my attention enough to inspire these next five photographs. I will, however, be using this realisation and rather unsatisfying gathering as a real big kick up the back side! I know I complain often about having to use my old phone for the shots- well, frankly that is besides the point. Many people use what resources they have and still create an explosion of visual excitement through a captured image, and this now becomes my aim.

I intend to think more thoroughly, to explore outside my usual realm of wanderings and to try new different looks and to use this self given criticism productively. There are two more posts for this challenge on their way, one of which the pictures have already been taken, the last post however I may cheat a little and scratch the first couple from the last few days and start them again, using this new found enthusiasm, and lets just see what happens!

16. A good habit
// Fruitful life //

17. Technology
// Making long distance less of a distance //

18. Your shoes
// A little glitter goes a long way //

19. Something you want
// A simple request //

20. Inside your bag
// Small fragments of ones life //

So these are my humble offerings for days 16 to 20, until the next deliverance…

    1. : ) I like to put them on and just stare at them! Hahaha!

  2. This is exactly what we were saying the other day (as you know!) and I do completely agree - plus it's always a little disheartening when I take a photo and, on the back of the camera it looks fine, but when loaded up onto my laptop it becomes a blurry mess! However, I think you are right about others using what they have in the best way they can so, I guess, that's all I can do!!

    And yum, I bloody love yoghurts!! (and you have glittery shoes, wow!!)

    1. Haha! Glittery shoes and yoghurts, what more can a girl want for?

      I think we can achieve photographic greatness! We can do it!!!
