Fun With Toys: Getting Through Cold, Gray Days
I admit it. I'm not a winter person. This has been a long, cold, gray winter. I photography daily despite that and try to keep up with the daily prompts from three sites on Facebook as well as weekly challenges. This year I found myself checking out the dollar stores and other places as well as checking out the Lego minifigures for sale on Amazon. It's been fun, but I'm ready to get out more. We did manage to get out and about a bit. We joined Longwood Gardens which has been great. We were there for their holidaye exhibit, then went back more than once for the orchids. We may go back one more time for the blue poppies. There will be spring flowers starting at the end of March in the conservatory. However, I DID find that I had to use a lot of creativity to meet the prompts which was kind of fun. When a prompt called for pink or bokeh, I had to think about that because I don't have a lot of pink things in my house. I DO have some battery powered Christmas lights that I've used for a wide variety of table top photography. I enjoy the challenge of finding something interesting to present when it comes to those daily challenges. I admit to obsessing about them more than I should, but the creativity it affords seems to strike the right chord in me. I have some catch up to do with this blog so there will be more posts.
