This week my good friend and fellow photographer Melissa challenged me on Facebook to the Black and White Challenge, it was cool to share some of my favourites and pushed me in one of my favourite areas of photography. As a person, I think it's always good to challenge oneself, helps us to keep growing, moving forward and avoid becoming stagnate. How do you challenge yourself? Through Art, books, new hobbies? Currently I've set up my own reading challenge for enjoyment. It's easy for me to get lost in books that are trying to teach me something, but there's something I love about getting lost in a story, maybe it's the escaping from the day to day and living in another world through someone's writing so my challenge has been to read for pure pleasure..currently reading The Rosie Effect.. read the Rosie project and loved it, next on the challenge project will be attempting to learn to crochet..we'll see how that goes! Enjoy the images from the BW challenge!
