265/366 uninspired

I have not been pushing myself lately. I take a picture every day, but I'm not really trying to use concepts I've learned as much as I have previously. Take today's picture—I was trying to think of something new, after actively avoiding my camera all day. I got the planned image, loaded it on my computer and discovered that my lazy posing and the harsh monitor light brought out more skin folds than I'd like. I thought about trying again to improve it, but opted to take it as is. Lazy.

I have a new kindergartner, struggling with the rigors of school every day. I've been working on PTO and other school tasks daily for the past four weeks. We've had soccer, ballet, running club, meetings, interviews, barbecues, birthday parties. 

I need to remember that photography is fun, not another task. It's stress relief, not an added stress. I must not waste the final 111 days.  

Aw, crap. There are still one hundred and eleven days.

I think all your pictures are great. Seriously. I'm uninspired in pretty much everything these days. I need to snap out of it.

Shake things up a little. Put seven colors/shapes/things on slips of paper and have Little Dude draw them out, one per day. Then take pictures of green things on Sunday, round things on Monday, manufactured things on Tuesday....Let random chance trim your choices to a smaller number--it's less overwhelming. And don't forget to cook stuff for Grandpa to test.

Dad has a good idea..and one that I was thinking as well. Also, maybe push to feel better about the 24mm?
