Monthly Word: February 2016

One of my goals for 2016 was to find another photo challenge to get excited about. I have taken part in the FMS Photo-A-Day challenge for the past three years, but in the last few months I found my motivation for that project dwindling…

What to do, what to do…

I’ve been thinking about this on my walk to work in the last few weeks, and I came up with the idea of a Monthly Inspiration Word. I would choose one word a month, and use this as a theme to focus my photography on for one month at a time.

The word / theme will be fairly broad and generic, in order to allow me to push my creativity! At least, that’s the hope 🙂 The goal is simply to take pictures, so if I take one picture a day, or a few a week, or any combination thereof, it’s all good, as practice makes perfect.

February can be kind of a dreary month in Vancouver. If you live on the Wet West Coast, there’s a good chance your days will be filled with rain and grey skies. So, what better word to focus on, than the word COLOUR! | February colour

If you’d like to join in, feel free – the more the merrier! I’ll be posting on Instagram, Google+, Facebook and Twitter,  and will tag #PictaMonth and #MyMonthOfFebruary.

So here’s to a year of creativity, one month at a time!
