Lately, I’ve been getting very weary of being busy. It seems like even if I carefully plan out every moment of the day, the to-do list is never as marked up as it should be by bed time, which is always later than I planned.
And I’ve noticed that some days when I sit down to upload and edit pictures at the end of the day, the pictures remind me of moments that happened just that day that I’ve already forgotten about, or didn’t take in at the time.
I’ve never done a 365 photography challenge before, where you commit to taking and editing a photo every day, mostly because it’s just one more thing I don’t have time for. But when Courtney from Click It Up A Notch announced she was starting a new Project 365 on November 1, it just clicked with me (ha, sorry): this is a great excuse to make sure I am taking notice of those little moments that are worth my time. So I’m jumping into my own Project 365 — “Value The Little Things” — because at the end of most days, the little things are what made the day.
Here’s my first pic: the toddler squat. I love (love) how this age easily and naturally does that crazy bottom-inches-above-the-floor squat to play.
And maybe this project will actually improve my photography a bit also so I stop blowing out all my pictures. :)
