Tomorrow begins a new month, and it also marks the first time I am without a photo-taking project in almost a year and a half. Or, I should say, it would have marked that occasion, but I decided instead that a month-long project was in order.
November is the month of Thanksgiving here in the U.S., and while it’s not really my style to spend the holiday enumerating my blessings, I do think that there is always room for a little gratitude in my life. That is why I’ve decided to spend November pointing my lens at the people, places, and objects which bring me joy.
I’m not one to get too deep, and I think it goes without saying that I am profoundly grateful for the big things – my family, my health, my home – which is why I expect that I’ll focus more on the little things for this – my morning cup of coffee, a favorite knitting pattern, pigtails on bad hair days… And, oh, alright, there will probably be some of the big things sneaking in there, too.
I’d like to invite you to join me. I’ve created a flickr group for the occasion. Submissions are limited to 7 photos per week, so pick your one favorite image each day. You can explain the image in detail, link to your blog, just write a small blurb, or say nothing and let the image speak for itself. The choice is yours. Every couple of days, I’ll pick one of my favorites from the pool and post it here to share with everyone.
I hope to see you joining in!
And please spread the word – the more the merrier 🙂
Here’s a badge for your blog, if you’d like one:
