The August Break

theaugustbreak_purple [dropcap custom_class="normal"]W[/dropcap]elcome August! (Can you believe we're closing in faster and faster on fall? Gack!)

Anyway, I'm joining in on Susannah Conway's August Break, not because of the original intent of her "breaks" (to take a leave from blogging for a month), but just to have some photography fun for the next 31 days. As Susannah says,

Part of the reason for doing this challenge is to pay more attention to what's happening around us and by looking for photos we'll keep our eyes open -- we'll live more in the moment, and that's a really good thing!

I'd love it if you'd join me, or just follow along on Instagram. Basically you post a photo each day that corresponds with the daily prompt and tag it #augustbreak2014. And if you want Susannah to send you a daily email reminder, you can sign up for that on her website. Easy peasy.

Here's the list of prompts.


If you join in, let me know in the comments along with your Instagram handle.

Now ... to find some lunch to photograph.
