If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign? – Albert Einstein
Focus: Photo Montage
Today I challenged myself to photograph 20 items within arm’s reach. It sounds silly, I know, but honestly the weather outside was horrible (freezing temps, snow, ice, wind, yuck), so there was no chance I was going outside to get my photo of the day. Besides, I’ve always found photo challenges like this to be a great way to spark my creativity. So, I sat down in my desk chair and didn’t move until I’d finished my collection (well, okay, I did swivel the chair around a bit to open drawers and such.) The funny thing is that I could’ve gone way past twenty items – it is truly amazing what you can find of interest if you just stop to look around… especially when your desk is as messy as mine!
P.S. – Did anyone notice that I only included 16 photos in my montage? Ha! Just checking to see if anyone really reads the posts, or if they just look at the pictures ;-)! But, I really did photograph 20 items… these are just the best of the bunch.
