April Photo Challenge: VIBRANT Recap

April has come to an end, and so has my monthly photo challenge. It was my month of VIBRANT and today I have my VIBRANT recap for you!

We had just over 3 weeks of rainy weather in Vancouver, but that only gave me motivation to seek out as much colour as I could find. Looking back over the month, I think I succeeded 🙂 I love looking at these pictures, seeing all the vibrant colours brightens my mood instantly!

So what did My Month Of Vibrant look like?

The April Photo Challenge took me…

… from lots of rain to intermittent (but intense) blue skies…

… from murals in Vancouver to murals in Victoria…

… from cherry blossoms in the sunshine to tulips in the rain…

… from bikes to kettle bells…

… from vibrant houses to vibrant statues…

… from good coffee to good food…

… from so much pink to so much blue!

May 2017 Monthly Word: FROM ABOVE

How did April come and go so quickly? One minute, we’re dealing with April showers, the next, we’re looking forward to May flowers! We did have a lot of rain in April so I definitely made sure to brighten my days with lots of vibrant colours. And with that, my Month of Vibrant has come to an end and I’ll share the full photo round-up in a few days time.

May Month of FROM ABOVE

I have a continually-growing list of words or phrases I’m always adding to, when it comes time to think about what my new monthly word challenge is going to be. At some point, I had written down the phrases “looking up / looking down”, which I kind of liked. But, I thought I would put a positive spin on it. So, instead of thinking about looking down, I’m going to think about my monthly word as looking FROM ABOVE!

What do you see, when you’re looking FROM ABOVE? Is it something interesting in nature? Or maybe you live in a tall building and have a great view of the city down below? Or maybe (like me), you take far too many pictures of what you’re eating? As long as you’re taking the picture from above, all is fair game!

So, I’m dedicating May to my month of FROM ABOVE, and I would absolutely love to see your perspective, too! If you’d like to join in, please do (as many or as little photos as you’d like). I’ll post my findings on various social media places – Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter,  tagging #MyMonthOfFromAbove and #MyMonthOfMay.

Here’s to a month of FROM ABOVE!

March Photo Challenge: TODAY Recap

March has finished, and so has my monthly photo challenge. It was my month of Today and today I have my TODAY Recap for you!

This month was a lot of fun, and reminded me of how I got started with the daily photo challenges. It was nice to simply snap a picture of what was going on in the day – no pressure 🙂

So what did My Month Of Today look like?

The March Photo Challenge took me…

… from lots of snow to lots and lots of rain…

… from strength training on the hangboard to power training on the campus board…

… from baking loaves of bread to simmering pots of jam…

… from coffee dates in the sunshine to coffee dates escaping from the rain…

… from enjoying a pint (of beer) to enjoying a pint (of ice cream)…

… from general traipsing about.

April 2017 Monthly Word: VIBRANT

I’m probably not wrong in saying that North American west-coasters are ready for March to be done. Vancouver has had a record-breaking winter – snow right into March, torrential rain for days (we broke a 61-year old one-day rainfall record this past week!), grey skies for too much of the month. With that, my Month of Today has come to an end. While I wasn’t a fan of the weather, I was a fan of that prompt! I’ll share the full photo round-up in a few days time.

April Month of VIBRANT

I’m done with the grey and gloom of this winter. In order to pull myself out of the doldrums, I’ve given myself a mandate to be on the lookout for colours. And not just a little colour, I’m looking for bold and bright and VIBRANT around town!

The trees are just starting to bud, and the flowers are desperately trying to bloom, and I’ll be on the look-out for those. But, really, our city is filled with vibrancy – painted buildings, colourful clothes, beautiful parks – I’ve just got to keep my eyes open 🙂

So, I’m dedicating April to my month of VIBRANT, and I would absolutely love to see your vibrant world, too! If you’d like to join in, please do (as many or as little photos as you’d like). I’ll post my findings on various social media places – Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter,  tagging #MyMonthOfVibrant and #MyMonthOfApril.

February Photo Challenge: Pairs Recap

February has finished, and so has my monthly photo challenge. It was my month of Pairs and today I have my Pairs Recap for you!

It took me a few days to get into the swing of it, and I may have stretched the use of the word to its limits in some cases. But I like the pictures I ended up with, nonetheless 🙂

So what did My Month Of Pairs look like?

The February Photo Challenge took me…

… from Quebec to Ontario to Central BC…

… from people watching to people working…

… from coffee + muffins to coffee + oatmeal…

… from beer + pizza to homemade bread + jam…

… from training + hangboard to training + rings…

… from pairs of bikes to pairs of shoes…

… from the sunrise to the sunset.
