With an itchy photographic trigger finger, I have jumped (before thinking) straight into the Photography 101 blog event being run through wordpress and twitter via #photo101 .
So my pre-event motivation today was found crawling at a sedate pace across the driveway, a humble snail. Encouraged by a damp shower, this fellow made a bold decision to run the gauntlet across our driveway. For him, the lack of a weather forecast really hurt his/her chances as the sun came out whilst only 50% across the drive.
For me, this has become a metaphor for myself jumping into this blogging event. Will I hit the start point full of zest and zeal to only see conditions change mid race, resulting in a sun baked burn out of creative energy? I have a hectic schedule this month which sees a mix of heavy family commitments and already booked interstate based work.
I ask all my readers to help infuse me with energy over the next few weeks. Figuratively poke and harass me to help motivate me through this challenge so I can become a better photographer and blogger as I attempt to post a photograph every day, based on the daily challenge theme.
Will you join me by lending some encouragement and support?
