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.

And just like that, we’re into April and a new challenge word! This month is all about VIBRANT and you can check out the details here.

Happy picture-taking!

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.

Here’s to a month of VIBRANT!

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.

March 2017 Monthly Word: TODAY

Does the short month of February catch you up, too? Throw in a long weekend, a few travelling site visits, and a stay-cation week, and the month feels like it’s over before it even began! And with that, my Month of PAIRS has come to an end, and we’re into a new month. I’ll share the full photo round-up in a few days time.

March Month of TODAY

A few years ago, I started with a photo-a-day challenge. Each day was a different picture with a different prompt. Sometimes the days’ challenge was easy to complete, sometimes it felt a bit forced. Regardless, I loved taking daily pictures! Just like this monthly photo challenge, I was forced to look at the world from a different perspective every day.

This month’s challenge is going to be a bit of a throw-back to my original photo-a-day start. We’re going to focus on the word TODAY! No specific prompt, just take a picture of what you’re up to today. What inspires you? What did you find interesting today? What do you do in your quiet times? Did something catch your eye? Snap away!

So, I’m dedicating March to my month of TODAY, and I would love to see what catches your eye, 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 #MyMonthOfToday and #MyMonthOfMarch.

Here’s to a month of TODAY!

January Photo Challenge Recap

I first started this monthly photo challenge a year ago. Thus, this January photo challenge marks one full year of completing these photography challenges – it’s gone by so quick!

It was my month of Minimal and, again, I really loved how this month played out. I think our weather probably contributed to this because we had snow… so much snow. And for Vancouver, this is completely unusual! It’s all people have been talking about for the last month, this includes both Vancouver-ites and the rest of the country (because we’re so ill-equiped to deal with the snow, we tend to make the news). Regardless, it gave me some pretty good photos 🙂

So what did my January photo challenge of Minimal look like?

The January Photo Challenge took me…

… from lots and lots of sunshine to lots and lots of snow…

… from travel to the BC interior to Ontario to Quebec…

… from breakfast to baking to coffee…

… from Monday morning walks to Friday afternoon climbing…

… from pops of colour to muted tones…

… from lots and lots of white.

And just like that, we’re into February!

I shared my new monthly word(s) already, so you can expect my social media feeds to be filled with lots of Pairs. If you’d like to join in the adventures, that would be awesome – we already have a few people joining in the challenge! If not, just looking at pretty pictures works too 😉

I’ll be tagging them all with:
