The assignment for August involved getting outside and creating the letters of your word - Ali had examples like writing your word in the sand or creating it out of twigs... that kind of thing. I went a little different and just photographed letters in my world... resulting in this:
The "D" was taken from among wooden letters for sale at Michaels. The "a" was in the store sign "Wawa" (like a 7-11 for those of you who don't have Wawa). It was taken from the car at a fairly good distance from the store sign, hence the graininess. The "r" is a throw pillow on Rachel's bed. And the "e" is from an ice machine at the gas station. It was a fun exercise. I'd like to find a replacement for the "a" that isn't as grainy and maybe is a color that isn't already in the collage. But the exercise definitely had me doing some surreptitious street photography (all taken with my iPhone) which is pretty DARE-ing for me!
I'll leave you with my tracker for August. It was a crazy hectic month, but I did complete the 21 day meditation challenge at chopra.com!You'll also notice that "eat well" didn't play a prominent role in my month. Too much ice cream! But I think I'm back on track now.
