Part of WordPress’s photography course Developing Your Eye I.

 

I can’t get enough of challenges. I should challenge myself not to accept any challenge for, say, thirty days. On second thought, that seems excessive. I shall not accept any challenge for the next thirty minutes.

I’m done with WordPress’s photo challenge Developing Your Eye part II, so I subscribed to the prequel, part I. I’ve received the first few prompts now and they fiercely amuse me. They are so, how to put it nicely—dumb?

Don’t even consider joining this anti-challenge unless you’ve never attempted to take a photo in your life. Task one is to locate your camera, find the fire button and take a picture of what home means to you. I haven’t felt at home for many years, so instead, here’s my cat at home.

Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
They have to take you in.

  2. Being at home is something we could all learn from our cats.

    1. Exactly! My cat has moved with me several times and she didn’t give a shit. She’s home everywhere.

  3. Dumb is, indeed, an accurate word for these challenges. Why do we keep doing them? haha

    1. Haha, yes, the challenges are dumb, but sometimes it’s so dumb that it amuses me…

  4. Now why on earth, I ask myself, would Mara the expert photographer, challenge herself to a course designed for the novice?! Are you deliberately trying to dumb down? Just don’t – please 🙂

  5. Reminds me of a t-shirt I saw that had a cat on it that said “home is where your butt is.” Sorry for the dumb comment…
