30 Day Photo Challenge

I’ve seen this 30 Day Photo Challenge from Positively Present floating around Pinterest

Although I’m not going to make it a 30 Day Challenge, I thought I’d post a few days worth of pictures…

Day 1: Favorite Food (not sure if these cookies are my favorite food but they’ve been a favorite this week)

Day 5: Morning Sky (Malmok Beach, Aruba)

Day 10: Nature (Roses in my neighborhood in San Diego this past summer)

Day 12: Hands (Diane Yu’s hands at Food & Light)

Day 16: Animals (Cats in Aruba)

Day 21: Where You Sleep

Day 24: Gratitude

Being Grateful & Thankful

Gratitude

Grateful

Day 25: Artwork (Skylar’s present to me on Mother’s Day.  Best gift ever.)

And her gift to Scott on Father’s Day

Questions:

Have you taken part in any challenges recently?  Any challenges you want to take part in?

Frequently I see people posting fitness challenges, make-over-your-life type challenges with everything from keeping a cleaner house to working out more consistently to dietary challenges such as no sugar or more protein to challenges having to do with becoming a more zen human being.

There’s definitely no shortages of challenges out there.

One of the challenges I gave myself was doing more self-assigned photography projects like this oneMaybe this one counts.

Thanks for the Coffee Giveaway entries, too!

    Oh I love this and the photos (especially the artwork from S). Makes me smile. I guess my last challenge was a race and new challenge is healing.

    i haven’t seen this 30 day photo challenge, but really like the concept!

    i’m currently doing (well, in my own head) the thanksgiving challenge. acknowledging and consciously giving thanks each day to one thing, person, etc. i am thankful for. it’s more for myself than any challenge, though!

    Wow–a 30 day challenge in a single post!

    I enjoy committing to “challenges” sometimes: it can really give a sense of structure and help with focusing.

    Man, I can’t wait to escape in the winter to a warm, warm place! That picture looks even better than it did in the summer.

    Awesome artwork and the cookies look delicious! I’m turing 30 in February. I was inspired by some other blogs to create a 30 by 30 list and I’ve been pretty happy about it so far. Completed items include: doing a cleanse, eating vegan for a week and going on a solo hike. Still working on: mastering homemade chai, holding headstand without the wall and running a 5k.

    hi averie, this comment is off topic –
    i clicked on your banana bread recipe (looks so yum) a few posts back & i was reminded of how you used to post a pic of a yoga pose -i loved how you described it & included a pic – you haven’t done that for a while –
    would you consider doing a daily yoga pic again?
    love your blog!

      No I wouldn’t because for about a year, I posted a picture daily. There are tons of yoga poses out there, but I think I covered many of them and they’re in my old posts. And it’s quite a bit of work to coordinate with my photographer, i.e.husband, in order to take the photos and at this point not something I’m going to be doing again. Enjoy the archives :)

    I might take this challenge on! It seems like a fun way to move photography away from JUST the food realm :)

    I always love your photography! I am not currently doing any challenges. Mostly because I saw a push-up challenge I thought I should do, but I have yet to do a single day. It just doesn’t occur to me unless I’m sitting at my computer. And if I’m at my computer I’m usually working on something. So I will try and make a mental note to do it later and then I completely forget. I fail at challenges!

    I love the picture with the hands and oranges, it’s so beautiful and real. You are an extremely talented photographer.

    I haven’t taken on any challenges in a while, though I did try a raw food challenge last winter which was moderately successful, but for now, I’m just going to focus on the NY Marathon and let everything else fall to the wayside.
