November 365 Photo Challenge List | Gratitude MonthPosted by Katrina Kennedy on Oct 25, 2013 in 365, Blog, Idea List | 36 comments
I need more Novembers in my life.
As I sat writing this I watched my 365 photos play on my television (thank you Apple TV). Photos from two years ago, three years ago, and just a few months ago appeared on the screen one after another. They each brought a smile to my face, some a laugh, and all triggered a memory.
I knew what I was most grateful for this November. Yes. I’m grateful for photography, but it’s more than that.
I’m grateful for the good days that presented color and light. I’m grateful for the laughter shared with my husband and son. I’m grateful for the times with friends and family.
I’m grateful for this moment in time. I’m grateful so many people around me are treasuring their moments as well.
I love that I can go almost anywhere and see someone with a camera in their hand (and I’m okay that so many are phones). I love that those cameras are pointing at moments of their lives. It shows me that people care. People have value in their life. They see beauty and color and angles. And they have memories.
I love sharing that with others. I love that this matters.
In November, join me for 30 days (or 30 more days) of photographing what we are grateful for. Join me in turning our lenses toward the small details, the everyday , and the people and things we love.
I hope you enjoy our month. I hope you enjoy our prompts.
And yes, I’m so grateful for you and the CY365 community. Thank you.
(Be sure to read all the way to the end of the post to see how I’d like to show you a little gratitude.)
