Twelve photos on the twelfth day of the month following Ella's Take 12 photo challenge. This month's prompt was inspired by the upcoming Christmas season and taking time to pause and notice the details of December through the lens of a camera.
Today's date was also significant and I'll be doing a mini book using today's photos to capture our life on 12/12/12. It was a regular Wednesday for us...school, work, homework, soccer practice and a hockey game but is was also International Hot Chocolate Day so the boys and I enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate late this afternoon to celebrate...at 4:30 when it was already dark outside!
So the details captured...signs of the holidays around the house such as candles, Santa, Christmas cards, the snowmen on the living room mantel, the clock at work at 12:12 on 12/12/12, the setting sun on my drive home, a child's piece of artwork on display at work, hot chocolate, hockey and soccer and our home lit up for the holidays. Oh, and two very important details in my life...the boys!
Thanks for coming along for the 12 on 12 ride with me! For 2013, I think I might go back and look at some of the alternate projects that were part of the Take 12 package and think about those. Doing photo challenges helps me see the world a little differently and notice and capture things I might not otherwise.
