Kerry is having some internet issues and isn't able to post, "The Sunday Challenge" this week. I offered to do a fill in post. The timing was interesting. I had just loaded an App to my IPHONE, for Instagram. It is this unique photography app, with many filters. You share your photos online, even the filter names are poetic, like Walden, 1977, Sierra, Early Bird, and etc. I can see this is going to be addictive. This is twitter for photo lovers. You can snap photos of your day, start an account, log in and share. Does anyone else use Instagram? For me it is about capturing something unique, when my other camera isn't with me. There are also photo contests online. Even if you are not interested, you will be stunned and amazed by the photos. Your mini challenge involves yes, Instagram photos. Don't worry, you aren't taking them, you are going to view them on this site, "Photo of the Day". Select a photo that speaks to your soul and pen a poem. Be sure to give credit to the photography on your blog. In theory the mini part is up to you! ;D
Here is the link to Photo of the Day. Here is another link showing photo contest winners. Amazing pictures! Between these two sites, I think you will find something. If you Instagram, use one of your photos or you could use mine. These are the first ones I took.
Here are a few of my Instagram photos:
This is in my front yard. I used a filter, I think it gives it a fairy like quality. I can almost see fairies dancing~
Pick a mini photo and share your magic! I can't wait to see what your soul's aperture focuses on.
One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.
