“When the creative impulse sweeps over you, grab it. You grab it and honor it and use it, because momentum is a rare gift.” ― Justina Chen
I am continuing my participation in the photography challenge, The August Break, the creation of Susannah Conway. Today I have the next 7 days of words, and my interpretations for you. This week seemed to be quite a challenge as I tried to capture so many images interpreting the latest words, many which are very common.
The first picture above is Day 21-Real Life. This is my everyday work area with my laptop front and center. I liked the picture better in black and white, as color was not an important aspect of the picture.
Day 22-Curves I had many different pictures picked out for this word. But it was when I was outside sitting, that I noticed the curves in my garden hat. This hat is a prized possession, and I had a lot of fun capturing the curves.
You can see another picture of my garden hat in the last picture. This was an impromptu picture taken while I was sitting outside enjoying the garden.
Day 23-Water One of my favorite spots is the pond in our garden. The sound of the waterfall is relaxing. I wanted to capture the waterfall as it flows down the rocks.
Day 24-In The Distance This is the beginning of the wetlands about a couple of miles down the road. It is acres of cattails that end at the woods edge, in the distance.
Day 25-Green The cattails end as the wetlands open up. And you can see this amazing Chartreuse green algae covering the entire surface of the water. Isn’t it stunning? Especially against the pinkish-purple flowers of the purple loosestrife plant that has invaded the wetlands.
Day 16-Door When I originally was thinking about this word, I wanted to capture our front door. But then as the day went on, I wanted to look at a few more doors around the house and garden. I especially love the view through the door on the gazebo. Isn’t it inviting?
Our purple front door is bottom right, the door I originally wanted to capture. And then I experimented with opening the door to a couple of rooms and capturing the view as you enter.
Day 27-Favorite Recipe During tomato season, we love to make sauce. This is a special recipe from a garden friend, Kathy@The Violet Fern. It is called Summer In A Jar, and you can read more about it here. All the ingredients, basil, garlic, cherry tomatoes, were grown in our garden this summer.
So there you have the photos from days 21-27 of The August Break challenge. I will have the remainder of the words, for days 28-31, in two weeks. Next week will be another Wildlife Lesson post, always on the first Thursday of the month.
I am linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, with Judith@Lavender Cottage who hosts Mosaic Monday, and with Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday) photo linkup party at image-in-ing.
I leave you with a bit more sentiment about creativity. Feel free to download the photo and share.
