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.
