..on my way to quitting the personal photo challenge I have laid down for myself.

I was thinking about giving it up this morning, convinced it was holding me back, like I was juggling taking PPC photos and also all the ones I wanted to take. Just now though, as I was processing some recent pics, that I thought had nothing to do with PPC, I realized they were all very influenced by the "brown" theme this week. I didn't even know it.
I am continually amazed at the power of the subconscious.

Yesterday I got the loveliest blog love for Valentines Day! Diane, over at Alberta Postcards gave me an Excellent Blog Award. I nearly fell over! Do you know what this means?! It means I may actually have to admit to myself that people are reading my blog, and it's not just an occasional, typed, private, word-wanking session. E-gads!

I've been taken with some amazing photographers on Flickr who are so very talented at composing everyday objects in such a way that the photos that are taken of them leave me feeling a little breathless. It seems I can't stop thinking about them. I find myself arranging little things here and there and snapping away at them. I have SO much to learn as really none of my arrangements have been of much interest ultimately. I've resorted to collaging photos digitally to achieve some sense of assemblage. I like them and may do more, but I crave being able to do this, and this, and this.
