20-25/365 Photo Challenge

365 Photo challenge

I was feeling a little overwhelmed this past week and just really… really struggling to implement some of the changes I’m reading about, capture the images I see in my mind’s eye and live with the life that’s going on around me. You know?

If you are up for the 365 Photo Challenge,it’s never too late – upload your own photos in the comments below !

To be honest, I thought getting a good photo of Moxie and the food would be easy and I was aiming for easy that day. But it wasn’t. I found things were distracting and the focus was shifting. Even though I’m not crazy about the picture, I think it was a good exercise. (and Moxie LOVED her noodles!)

We were out playing and I saw this bunch of calla lilies. So gorgeous! There are quite a few bunches of calla lilies here on the Lost Coast, which led me to wonder if they are native (- they aren’t).

May Day on the beach. I love that this community does that – meets on the beach for a may day celebration that includes flowers, wreaths, a may pole and wonderful-ness, usually despite freezing cold and biting wind!

  • Happy Sunday to your beatiful family and you! 🙂
    All of your photos are magical but I’m a food person and I really like the 24/365! Delicious photo! Yum, yum! 🙂

  • I’m finding it hard too – I end up taking the same kind of photos that I have been taking anyway… I will have to make more of an effort to set a goal each week or month or so. But not in the next fortnight, I am flat out with uni for the next couple of weeks, so just getting pix up will be enough of a challenge!

    I am loving your work though, and I am so glad you have been having visitors and may days and so on.


  • Hey so I got invited to a maypole thing this weekend! I was so excited – thought it would be a great photo opportunity. Actually it was a steiner school open day, and no-one but the school kids got to touch the maypole – and that was in an organised dance. Two of our little played with the ends of the ribbons that were tied around the pole afterwards, and I took some photos. We sat to have a snack after and watched the school tie those ends up the pole! Charming. I did get a couple of nice shots, but they were just the normal playground shots, the maypole stuff didn’t really come out 🙁

    Don’t think I can load any photos here, but I could DM you a couple on IG if you want to see them.


I'm opinionated, friendly & chatty... I hope you are, too
