52 in 2016- Week #1 Reflection

The other day I was reading Say it With a Camera blog.   Mike Hardisty’s accomplishment of 52 in 2015 intrigued me.    I read about how to participate in the weekly themed challenge.  The part that appealed to me is you have to take photographs during the week of the theme- no archived shots.  I read the rules of the group and signed on the participate in the 52 in 2016 Challenge and Day 1 of Week 1 is Monday January 4th.

I like the idea of a new goal in photography. Actively working on something different.  A challenge.

Week #1 theme is reflection.  Today I was watching my grandson Charlie while his mom, Laura, was packing away the Christmas tablecloth and cleaning up the kitchen. She had just polished the electric kettle and I was standing there in her kitchen and thought, reflection.

 

Reflection Week #1


Sharpen Every Pencil in the House for the New Year 1-1-11

A new manual pencil sharpener and left-handed Anna hard at work sharpening every pencil she could find.  I thought of the pencils at home that need some new points to write lists, notes and phone numbers. She needed a sharp pencil to complete her homework. Mary suggested the manual as the electric ones break easily or host a crayon. Nothing like a new can of sharpened pencils to represent possibility.
