During the month of February, Elisse and Malu organized a photo challenge The goal of this challenge was to take one photo everyday, thereby sticking to a different theme each day. I was very excited to take part and challenge myself to photograph more often again. I used to take my camera with me everywhere I went but I’ve grown quite tired of lugging my heavy dslr around. I missed taking pictures everyday though, so this was the perfect opportunity to do so again! I have to admit, I didn’t finish. Turns out taking interesting photos is not so easy when most of your days are spent behind your desk and I often found myself reluctant to drag my camera with me all the time. There’s good news to though, I’ve recently splurged on a fancy phone which means I can take decent pictures everywhere I go now and you will soon see those on my instagram aupaysdesmerveillesblog. Enough excuses, over to the result!
