Getting Unblocked

August Break 2013--Day 13

August Break 2013–Day 13–home. Our front porch.

Sometimes when one is blocked creatively in one medium it’s good to explore a different medium. This is what I’ve been doing this month with my new phone, Instagram, and the August Break #2013. The creator, Susannah Conway provided photo prompts for each day of August.

I’m having fun pondering the prompts and experimenting with the photo possibilities. Sometimes I am really pleased with my picture and other days, not so much. But that’s how creativity happens–exploring, testing, trying.

I didn’t do it daily yet I did more than just dip my toe into this new medium and I’ve had fun.

I am circling around fabric again, pondering fiber art again. Perhaps photographing will inform my fiber art? Think so.

Here are a few more photos I took:

Day 4--love.  A love note a found on my bulletin board one day.
