February…oh February.  It’s a long month.  Well, not really, seeing that’s it’s only 28 days.  But if you live in these northern parts it’s a long month.  Come February we are officially done with winter.  Done.  The winter blahs set in and we are literally counting the days until spring (20 days, see what I mean?).  We could all use a little glow.

So to beat the winter blahs I challenged myself with a little photo project last month.  A photo a day.  Capturing us in our home.  It’s something I love to do. But I tried to make it more than just snapshots.  I focused on the light and the story and being intentional with my camera.  I guess you could say I tried to focus on the glow, which helped a bit with the February blahs, and created some images that I wouldn’t have caught had I not challenged myself and picked up my camera each and every day.  Maybe I’m ready for that 365 after all.  Okay, let’s not over do it.

Click on the slideshow below to see the photo a day February glow (or 28+2, what can I say, I’m indecisive).  And turn your sound on if you want to hear a little glow, too.

only time will tell if i can keep up with the challenge of at least one photo a day and finish out 365 days. you were smart… to pick just one month, and to pick the shortest of months! less pressure! =)
