Take 12! December
After doing today’s Take 12! I have found myself at a crossroads. I have been doing this every month since 2011-and now I am wondering whether to continue into 2016. If I do, it has become clear that I need to plan a bit better, as I keep finding myself more often than not, walking the neighborhood month after month. Better planned outings might make for more interesting projects. I had also not planned on making the images so top-heavy with Christmas, but that is the way it goes.
Where I Was At:
Literally–around the neighborhood and house. Unlike previous years, there seems to be a decrease in decorations, which is strange to me at least as there are a lot more children in the neighborhood. No shortage of white lights though. I grew up in a neighborhood where white lights were quite exotic-the more color the better.
Mentally–Am thinking some about next year and what kinds of things I might like to try. I am thinking about a photo a day project, but am on the fence about that. A bit melancholy too, though I definitely try to take it a day at a time here. I like Christmas and I do enjoy seeing the lights, hearing the sounds and the smells–delicious!
Creatively– Still up and down, but am taking the tack that it is all okay. I have been playing around with using the iPhone to create illustrations of toys (and Hubble) which has been fun.
Images taken with iPhone 5s and processed with Stackables, iColorama S, Pic-Tap-Go, Gloomlogue, Photo Toaster, and Snapseed-
