The topic for #7SDDPHOTOADAY was “I adore.” This is Olivia, a three month old hedgehog that my husband gave me back around Thanksgiving. She was an early birthday present. I adore hedgehogs.
For today’s challenges I actually dug into my photo archives.
#7SDDPHOTOADAY, the topic was CHALLENGE. In the summer of 2011 when I finished the radiation treatments for breast cancer, I signed up for my first ever Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Worried that I wasn’t getting enough training, I decided that hiking up the Manitou Springs Incline would be an excellent way to train for the 40 mile Avon Walk. This is me just before we began the hike. I did make it to the top (and I hiked it once more that summer). Oh and I did complete the Avon Walk, too. This September, I will be walking in my 3rd Avon Walk – this time in Santa Barbara.
The topic for #FMSPHOTOADAY is “Mine.” Here’s a rare picture of my men.
For #7SDDPHOTOADAY – the topic was “3 things about me.” I think these three things describe me rather well.
For #FMSPHOTOADAY – the topic was movement. These two seldom stop moving.
The topics for both challenges for day four were very similar “My View” and “The View From Here.” On Day Four I was in a day long professional development (one of the reasons I’m behind on these posts.)
This is the view from the school where the PD was being held.
Day 3 topic for #7SDDPhotoADay was home. This is just a simple picture of our home.

For the #7SDDPHOTOADAY Day 2 the topic was “fresh.”
Today was a little hard. But that’s what I like about these challenges, they make me think outside of the camera lens. And of course sometimes it’s just the luck of the draw. I’m just an amateur photographer, but I firmly believe taking good photos is more than just technique. You need to use the camera in your mind as well as the one in your hands.
