I’ve been bad.
I signed up for the October Photo Challenge, and while I’ve been pretty good about actually taking the photos according to the daily prompts, I’ve been remiss in posting them. So here’s my best mea culpa: I’m sorry and I promise I’ll try to do better!
Day 10: Favorite
Getting to come home after work is easily my favorite part of the day, and my heart wreath is always the first thing I see. I kind of love it. So much so that it has been hanging on our door since last February… Oops.
Day 11: From Up High
This shot is the view from the Brown’s Island pedestrian bridge. On nice days, I often go for a walk or run during my lunch break. Lately I’ve been taking my camera along with me on my walks. There are an abundance of beautiful sights to capture downtown.
Day 12: Hands
I intended on taking pictures of Aaron and I’s wedding-ring-adorned hands, since it’s still pretty novel for us newlyweds, but before I could, I caught him napping on the couch. I liked this photo better since it wasn’t staged, even if he did start to smile once he realized I was photographing him.
Day 13: Seat
Another photo from downtown Richmond, featuring the Brown’s Island pedestrian bridge and a bench where I used to read when I first started my job.
Day 14: Silhouette
This was such a random photo that I snapped last-minute on Richmond’s Canal Walk, but I think it turned out pretty neat!
Day 15: Accomplishment
I’ll admit this one may be a little of a stretch. No I’m not the really talented person who painted this, but this photograph was one of my very first in manual mode. A construction worker just happened to walk by and I loved the contrast of his neon with the black and white of the street art. It was more pure, dumb luck than anything, but I thought it was awesome. So it counts, right?
Day 16: Edible
Apples. Yum. I photographed these at Carter Mountain in Charlottesville, where Aaron and I went apple picking!
Day 17: Shadow
Wow, the Brown’s Island pedestrian bridge is getting all the love. I already had a photo in mind for the shadow prompt, but this one won me over!
Day 18: Corner
I purchased a wooden monogram for Aaron and I to display at our wedding, and I intend to turn it into a wreath at some point, but for now, it hangs on the wall in our dining room . I love walking by this corner of our house every day.
Ohmygoodness. I’m almost caught up. Phew!
How did October get away from me?
Love your shadow and seat pictures! Such a beautiful area to take a break during your day.
Thank you, Lauren! I feel really lucky to work so close to a beautiful area of downtown. 🙂
Beautiful pictures Lauren! I can see you’re putting your new camera to good use! Have a great weekend!
Thank you, Jen. Happy Friday!
That heart wreath is gorgeous. I have a weird obsession with everything hearts, so one day I hope to have this on my front door!
Yay! I’m not alone! My husband is so sick of looking at it, but I just can’t let it go.
Ohhh my gosh, I love the monogram wall art.
I want to do the photo challenge next month!!!
