Project 366: Week 18

Taking a few days off blogging has put me behind a couple of weeks on posting photos for my ‘Project 366 – 2016’ but I’ll be catching up soon enough. I’ll share some today and then another round over the weekend or early next week. Life gets in the way sometimes and that can’t be helped.

This week's photo theme: Random Shots

What I've learned this week:
We can’t always keep up with everything, so we have to prioritize.
But despite how busy it gets, it’s important to make time to play.
There are infinite amounts of photos waiting to be taken.
I’m amazed that we’re in May and I’m still committed to this project!


That’s it for today, friends. Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.

    2. As I write this, it's Sunday night and I am thrilled with the amount done. Tonight, we were at Barnes and even being 30 minutes from home, I could still feel the freedom from having less stuff. It was amazing.

      Hope you have a killer week. I've got four more days before my deadline. Then, it's Tim's birthday on Friday and we start out ten day stayflippin'cation.

    1. Thank you, Cheryl! That is really kind. I think that I NEED this project. Keeps me focused on having some fun when life gets terribly busy. The best way to take photos is to just pay attention to your surroundings. Really pay attention. It is surprising how many fascinating things are out there!

  11. Great selection again Martha, well done.

    I did like your first one the way that nature and rust do seem to have blended together.

    Trees to - are always lovely to look at and enjoy the seasons with!

    Hope your weekend has been a good one.

    All the best Jan

  14. Nice to hear from you! The View is such a beautiful photo (all of them are). The sky called my name. I think I needed to read what you wrote about prioritizing. There are always a million things to do and I need to focus on a few and be okay with that. Xoxo
