Following Through

Sometimes, I have trouble following through with my intentions.I had planned to make diptychs with photographs for seven days. My plan was to look for things around me every day to pair—either because they were similar or because they contrasted in some way. Sometimes, that’s hard to do—both to take the pictures everyday and to be observant to those nuances.

And then sometimes, life gets in the way. Sundays are always busy times, and I had planned to take the day off anyway. And then—the MIGRAINE struck. It was my plan to go outside and look for the contrasts, to juxtapose ideas and images. And just doing that—looking for those juxtaposing images and ideas is hard! (It makes my brain hurt to think about it!)

So, what do I do today? Wait for tomorrow! (Channeling my inner Scarlet O’Hara!) Seriously. I’m going to give it some thought. And I will share my first two diptychs.

I found the template for Lightroom here. Clickin’ Moms is a great resource for all things photography, and especially portrait photography and children’s photography.
