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 ‘Mess’.
EASY PEASY. I have dozens of pictures of messes. These are just recent ones, because I love the light coming in through our windows.
The pre-motherhood me would FLIP. OUT. over this mess – “There’s shit everywhere! Oh my God, the rug is not straight! The Zingo tiles should be INSIDE the dispenser thingy! I need to clean it up now!”
Me now: The boys are quietly playing. Yay!
Motherhood: When Standards Drop.
(What do you think of these ‘mess’ photos? This is a photography exercise, so any critique is appreciated and welcomed!)
Next week’s prompt: Eyes
For the full list of prompts, check out my Through The Lens Thursday page. If you’d like to join Greta and I, but not necessarily blog your picture, join our Flickr group, where we upload our photos, and give comments, or helpful critique on each other’s photographs.
Happy 4th of July to my American friends! To celebrate the independence theme, I have a post at Everyday Family on how to teach preschoolers independence. Do check it out!
