My First 30 Day Challenge – Photographs

My initial 30 day challenge is complete.  I chose 30 days of photos as you may have read on Facebook, Twitter or in my previous post on this blog.  I found it to be more of a challenge than I originally thought it would be.  I also found that sometimes the randomness of it or needing to take a picture just to do it, took some of the fun out of it.

There are a couple of reasons that this happened. One was that I was just so busy and couldn’t take the time out to do it when I wanted to. The second is that unfortunately, as much as I hate to admit it, I would forget.  This could stem from being busy or stressed out about something, but I attribute it more to maybe not being as passionate about it as I wanted to be.

Either way, I am really glad that I did it and I am looking forward to possibly doing it again in the Fall.  There are several things that I would have done differently, and of course this is one of the reasons why I am anxious to do it again. I really enjoyed the challenge.  I am also enjoying the ability to share it with everyone.

The bad news is that I spent the entire morning uploading them to a Flickr.com set and after tagging them and taking the time to add descriptions, I realized that I am not able to embed the slideshow into my blog as I had hoped I would. So I have decided to go ahead and place a link to the Flickr slideshow and the Facebook album (for those of you who are friends with me on Facebook). It’s much easier and with the amount of work I have to do for my side project, news to come, I cannot spend an entire day doing this.

My frustration actually had a positive side, I am going to start looking into basic development courses. My employer has tuition reimbursement, so why not take advantage of it right?

Without further ado, here are the pictures….
