I am constantly blown away by the imagination and creativity put into these prompts by people taking part.
I mean last week’s ‘hands’, that’s a tough one right?
Except it wasn’t and there were some amazingly emotional and heartwarming posts written.
This week I’m going with a suggestion for someone after a photo they used for the Family prompt.
Spudballoo said she was so used to editing and touching up and setting up the perfect photo that she rarely photographed the every day. “Alas real life can’t be processed, glossed, trimmed and deleted with such gay abandon so I decided to snap a photo for this week and not ‘mess with it’ in any way” she said.
It’s this random every day shots that I personally look back on now from my own childhood as glean so much from. Things in the background which spark a memory, facial expressions – things which can get cropped out or ignored when you’re looking for that ‘perfect’ shot.
And also things we tend to not photograph because they’re not a happy or a perfect moment.
So, this week’s photography theme is another toughie: The Everyday.
If you want to join in with The Gallery and showcase your photos, come back on Wednesday and when my Gallery post goes up, add a link to your post on the Linky below mine.
The link stays open until the following Tuesday so you have plenty of time to join in.
Remember, The Gallery isn’t about technically brilliant photos. It’s about rediscovering photos; both old and new.
It’s about sparking your imagination, being inspiring – and inspiring others.
And absolutely ANYONE can join in.
