Driving and walking under the blue skies of New Mexico along the Turquoise Trail gives me great joy.
What’s this On the Hunt for Joy Challenge?
The inspiring Cee has started a new challenge, which she got the idea for from Ingrid Fetell Lee and her TED Talk. I know I am always out looking for joyful things to photograph and thought it would make a great challenge.
On Ingrid Fetell Lee’s website, she has a listing of 50 Ways to Find More Joy Every Day. I’m going to be using the 50 ways for a weekly topic. Some of the topics will be expanded on as to how we can show them in photos for a challenge.
So Cee will provide prompts on joyful themes each week. All you need to do to join is:
- Visit Cee’s blog to find out this week’s prompt.
- Create a relevant post.
- Link toCee’s blog.
A painting I saw at a museum in China. A festive painting of acrobats.
Here’s my first stab at an iMovie. It’s less than a minute long. The guy in the orange was so joyful.
Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter – we’ll highlight great photos from each month’s most popular challenge.
Wishing you peace and joy all through 2014!
