Gimme that
It’s week 8 of my 52 Wednesdays project and one thing I’m loving as it goes on is how much it stretches me.  Seriously.
In the last several assignments, I’ve been really skeptical that I could complete the task and have something I’m proud of to show for it.  This week wasn’t any different, and by 3pm today I actually hadn’t even completed the assignment yet.  I even thought to myself, “Does it really matter if you don’t do it this week??  I have a lot going on and no plan… what the heck.  How am I going to pull this off?”  But it does matter, to me anyway.  You see, completing a 52 week project is one of my biggest goals this year.  It’s about the dedication and the integrity of seeing the commitment through to the end.  So I’m really proud of myself that I didn’t talk me out of it.
You should have seen me at 4:30pm though (with very little daylight remaining), documenting every reflective object in sight.
Because part of the problem is that although I was happy I wasn’t giving up this week and waiving the white flag, I didn’t want my submission to be lame either.  In fact, I was certain I was going to have to apologize in this blog post for posting such a lame photo.
But yay for you, and yay for me because I’m actually really proud of my photo this week.  So here it is.  I hope you enjoy it.
Next in this photo circle of ladies is the ever sweet and equally talented Lauren Gauthier of Red Dirt Girl Photography.  You can find her post here.

    LOVE IT, girl! So perfect! I know what you mean about being stretched – I, too, waited until the last minute and contemplated pulling out a water reflection from our trip to the coast last year. But I’m so glad I didn’t and instead came up with something different and fresh (even if it wasn’t my best work!). Great job!

  3. Marla, this is really a neat photo! Glad you waited for it!

  4. i love it, marla. amy’s right…you’re not just pulling it off, you’re pulling it off with grace, style and artistic flair. thanks for the link, and accompanying kind words…see you next week 🙂
