August pictures

243. That's how many pictures I have taken for my 365 challenge so far. Which means I have completed 66% of it! That number is only a small percentage of the amount of photos I have taken this year, which is completely amazing. I am sure that I have taken more pictures in 2014 alone than all the photos combined from my entire life before. Crazy, isn't it?? 
That's the cool thing about these sort of projects: A small decision to stick to something can lead to a new passion. There are 122 more days to go - I've got this!

August was a colourful, fun month! But I have to say, I'm glad to slow down now. This first week back at work has knocked the stuffing right out of me, and I feel worn out and exhausted. It's time to get back into the routine of working again, plus I also have a few projects planned around the house, and I am brainstorming ideas for the blog (always). Here is to a productive September!

  1. Oh how fun! It's true - making a little commitment can sometimes help you discover a new passion. For me? I started writing over a year ago just to keep up with my family and friends who live far away, and it turned into a blog, and here I am - how many months later? - loving creating posts and meeting other bloggers...I'm completely passionate about it! I think this is the perfect way to show your skill (and build your interest!) in photography - I've said it a million times, you've really got an eye! I love these kind of "summary posts" - whether it be a month in pictures, a year in pictures, a week in summation, etc. - it really makes you think twice about what you personally are experiencing in your own everyday life. Such a great post!
