Thanks to everyone who participated in the first week’s Slice of Life challenge, “New Beginnings”! It was so great to see a slice of your worlds and all of the new beginnings in your lives. If you’d like to check out what people contributed, visit the Slice of Life Flickr pool. Every Tuesday, I will post a new challenge to inspire you to photograph the world around you. It’s never too late to join the fun! If you’d like to participate in this group, you can join the group any time and learn more about the group here.
This Week’s Challenge: WARMTH
When I was trying to think of this week’s challenge, I was hearing news of frigid temperatures around the United States. I thought, what better way to stay warm this week than to photograph things that are warm? Not to mention, I happen to know that some of you live in warm climates – on the other side of the hemisphere, so warmth has an entirely different meaning to you right now! (Btw, how cool is it that we can connect with someone on the other side of the world??? This internet thing is pretty nifty!)
These days in Seattle, I’m reminded why some people might suffer from seasonal affective disorder. The days are short and gray and are often accompanied by cold, light rain. People live in their fleeces and keep themselves warm and caffeinated with a constant flow of coffee.
I happen to be one of those crazy people who loves this weather. I’m not originally from Seattle, but I’ve always been a homebody. I love nothing more than hanging out in my pajamas with my cat or sitting in a coffee shop for hours on end. Not to mention, I have skillfully used the Seattle weather as an excuse to collect scarves.
Now it’s your turn! Spend this week photographing the warm things in your world and posting them in the Slice of Life Flickr group. If you respond to the challenge on your blog, please leave a direct link in the comments below. If you’re not sure where to begin or are looking for some ideas for staying inspired and photographing on a regular basis, check out yesterday’s post.
Sending you warm wishes as you venture into this week of WARMTH!
