I've been clicking along with my 52 of You project.
This is week 5 and our assignment is to get out in the dark, to play with light sources like christmas lights and glow sticks, etc. Its a tough one...a real challenge. By the time I get everyone into bed at night and start to think about my own time, I just want to put on my flannel pj's and climb into bed with my stack of books.
I haven't really wanted to get bundled up and head outside to set up shots and explore light sources...at all.
So far, its been fun...and I have tried not to take myself too seriously. I had a lot of fun with week 4, with the theme of whimsy.
However, this week's "dark" challenge has me a bit stumped. I don't want to spend any more time "in the dark" than I need to. As a kid I would run and jump into bed as far back as I could just in case there might be anything under my bed that might be able to reach out and grab me. Somehow, once I was in bed I felt safe and secure.
Feeling a bit like that these days, like I just want to stay under the covers a bit longer where it is warm and safe and nothing can get me.
Maybe I'll just stay another week on whimsy and skip the darkness challenge all together...or not.
Here's to getting creative in the dark, and living in the light friends!!!
I spent most of my childhood on the priairies of Oklahoma and Texas, but now live by the sea on the East Coast. My personal style reflects both influences. Welcome to my little bit of blogland. Thanks for visiting my space!
