If you’ve ever considered joining a photo challenge, you know they can be a mixed blessing: On one hand, it’s fun and inspiring to see your friends’ photos. But on the other, it can be daunting to sort through your own and decide what to show.
In hindsight, I’m grateful I overcame the “daunting” part to join a friend’s 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge on Facebook last week. It was good to revisit my work with a critical eye — and rediscover a handful of old favorites I’d long since forgotten. But maybe most importantly, it was good to be reminded that there is still SO MUCH BEAUTY in our world.
