smile! {169/365}

More of a smirk, I’d say …

smile! 169/365

“Smile” is the prompt for today, the last day (sob) of Creativity Boot Camp.

I’d prefer to be sobbing, but it turns out that Maegan isn’t deserting us or throwing us to the wolves.  Oh no, she isn’t!

In an effort to help you keep your creative fires burning and to foster the relationships and the community that we’ve all developed here at CBC, I’m going to be starting a new series over at my personal blog, Life Set to Words. Each Sunday, I will be giving a weekly creative prompt along with a weekly post where we can all link our work. I will post the week’s theme on Sunday morning and you can link up through the entire week. The themes will start next Sunday, June 27th.

The Sunday Creative

Maegan, you are amazing.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Boot Camp and I think I can honestly say that my photography has gotten a real kick in the butt during the past two weeks.  I’ve challenged myself, and had fun doing it, every step of the way.

(sshhhh … let’s just forget about yesterday shall we?)

Added bonus?  Meeting so many awesomely talented people, not only photographers but writers, painters, designers … you name it, and I’m so happy that I’ll still be able to meet up with my fellow boot campers.

I’ll be hanging out at Maegan’s place next Sunday, count on it.

    Wonderful self portrait. Another one that would look great at the top of a bi-line or on the leaf of a book. I almost bought myself a hat like that – they were everywhere in Hawaii – but where would I wear it and I would always have hat head. o:) June

    great self-portrait… you look so confident and strong. I’m glad Maegan will be giving a weekly prompt. I can probably manage that, but the daily prompts were too much for me… at least this month!

      Thanks girl! And you’re right, it was a lot to manage. Fun though! I think two weeks was exactly the right amount of time … anything more would’ve probably stressed me out :)

    Love the photo! I’ve so enjoyed connecting with you through Bootcamp – I enjoy checking in each day to see your work.

    Woo! So glad we’ll both be doing the Sunday Creative together.
    Great black and white photo, too!

      Thanks! I think once a week will definitely be more manageable, right?
      … of course there’s still the 365, but no pressure for prompts or themes.
      You may get a lot of flowers from me while I sit back and relax! LOL!

    What an awesome self portrait this is! You’re very photogenic…and I love the sense of smirk. ;-) Maybe a weekly thing will get me off my uninspired butt.

      Definitely! Join in woman :)
      And I am totally NOT photogenic. It’s only because I’m taking it, and you don’t get to see the other twenty I threw out ;)
