Default Challenge #1 - Journaling - March 2016

Hi everyone! Welcome to the March journaling challenge! This month, I'm going to try to get you to focus on something that's not THE focus! You know how it goes....you take a picture of something amazing, but later on, you see a small detail in the picture that draws your attention away from your actual subject. For example, the photo in this old layout of mine...



Clearly, in this photo, the point is my in-laws and their wedding. But I always tend to focus on the detail that many overlook, the groom's parents holding hands. Maybe she was trying to move him closer - the bossy farm wife pulling her clueless husband where he should be. Maybe she was grabbing his hand to get his attention - "Smile darn it Lester!" Or maybe she was just reaching for his hand to hold. That small detail, almost a background detail, speaks volumes. The goal of this challenge is to find a photo and pick out a small, background detail to journal about. It could be the shirt someone is wearing, the wall paper in the background of the photo, or the special toy abandoned on the floor...as long as it is not the focus of your photo, it's fair game.

Use your journaling to make that small detail the focus. Remember that journaling should be at least a complete sentence and preferably more. Try to add more than just a title or a few words. Give us some complete thoughts about why that small detail is important.

Here are some pages from the Cheery-Os to get you started thinking!

I love this challenge, to look for those little things that you don't see right up front in the photos! I'm going to scan my photo library for something for this!

Interesting challenge, I love it... for the past year or so , I have found myself focusing of tiny insignificant things in the real world... the things no one sees... will have to peruse my photos ...
