Through The Lens Thursday is a one-year photography project, where every week, my project partner, Greta of GFunkified and I, will post a picture (or pictures) we have taken based on a prompt. Our hope is that together, we can teach and learn from each other, stay accountable to our goal of improving our skills, and hopefully, be taking some gorgeous photographs.
This week’s prompt is “Corner”.

I only waited 6 weeks for this book to arrive.
Humans of New York is one of the most inspirational photography projects in the world. I don’t say that lightly. Brandon Stanton has over 2 million Facebook fans, and his book has hit the New York Times bestseller list.
It’s not just about photography. It’s about people. It’s about stories. It’s about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It’s about extraordinary people doing ordinary things.
It’s about looking beyond what is outside.
Do not judge what you cannot see.
Everyone has a story. Do we take the time to find out what it is?
Brandon Stanton does just that for Humans of New York, and I love it.
If you’d like to post your own picture on your blog, or social media, based on our weekly prompt, please do and let us know about it in the comments here, we will definitely want to check it out! We would also love for you to join our #ThroughTheLensThursday Flickr community!
Next week’s prompt: Movement
