Through The Lens Thursday is a one-year photography project (now in its second year), 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 Polka Dots.
This is my life planner from Erin Condren, and I chose that quote for the cover for a reason.
I have always been a doubtful writer, in that I doubt myself a lot. So much so, my blog bio read, “I am a pretend writer.” My good friend, the very honest and gorgeous Arnebya called me out on that and demanded that I own the title Writer.
I am owning it this year. I have to believe in myself, my abilities, my writing.
So I have a post published on Medium today. It is a deeply personal story about my grandmother, a woman who is never far from my mind and heart. I would love if you head over there and read it. Thank you.
Next week’s prompt is Candy.
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.
