March 2019 – 10 on 10

Last month I started a personal photography project for 2019 that I’m really happy I’ve now completed for March.  I tend to think that once I’ve done a couple of months I’m more likely to manage to stick with something like this for the whole year.

The project I’m doing is the 10 on 10 project, and basically just involves taking 10 photos on the 10th of each month.

It’s a really lovely way of recording a day in the life, of sorts.  A little snapshot of our life each month.

So, here are the photos from this month.

March 10 on 10

 

Life on the 10th March brought us:

  • A wet and windy morning
  • Sofa cuddles with a brand new unicorn toy
  • A little drive out to Sunday swimming lessons
  • Posing for photos and playing with the remote trigger
  • A chilled afternoon of drawing and reading

 

Now that I’m 2 months into this project I’m starting to really enjoy it.  It pushes me to think more creatively, to find the light in our often gloomy house, to seek out the stories that I want to tell from our extraordinary, ordinary life.

It’s too easy to think that there’s nothing ‘worth’ photographing on a normal, rainy Sunday.  But those are the days and moments that make up our lives.  Those quiet ordinary moments, they’ll be gone all too soon and we’re in danger of not seeing the beauty in them until it’s too late.

So my challenge to you is to start looking at your wonderful, normal life differently.

To notice the beauty in the little moments.
