June 2015 Photo Challenge ~

I used to participate in monthly photo challenges a while ago, which I loved as a way to create a tiny bit of space for creativity and reflection in my otherwise crazed work life. It started with just one other friend (Jessica) and we used Pinterest to post and share. Then other friends wanted to join and the endeavor moved to Facebook. More and more friends invited other friends for future challenges… and that’s where it started to breakdown, in my mind. Too large, too unmanageable, too many people taking photos off the internet or sharing photos that already existed (it’s a daily smartphone photo challenge, people!).

Jessica was inspired to reboot the challenge this month, and so far so good (a lot less emotionally fraught diarist activity, a lot more creativity). Instead of posting to the group and then to my Facebook page, I will share and reflect on this site.

The list we chose (instead of creating our own like in the past), found on www.captureyour365.com:
