Do you DARE to do a long term challenge? If so, join me in this one. Plan to take 5-10 pictures each week for the next 6 weeks. Choose from this list each week (you do not have to set your choices in stone, go the extra mile by NOT doing the same selections each week!)

- Meal Time
- Weather
- Hands/Feet/Features that are NOT the typical "face" of a picture
- Pet peeves
- Favorite things
- Packages
- Over the shoulder or random shots without using the viewfinder on your camera
- Flowers
- Work
- Your view
- Silly moments
- Everyday Staples
- Pleasant Surprises
- Walking away
- Mirrored
- Shadows

SAVE your shots by week! Then at the end of the 6 weeks I will post the next portion of this Polka-DOT. This is not an excersise in planning, it is an excersise in spotanaity, and we all need a bit of a "different view" on our lives to really SEE them.

Enjoy yourself, feel free to show off some of your most unique and surprising shots along the way. I have added some of my favorite and surprising shots that thinking outside the box with my camera have gotten me. The one of my husband was actually taken over my shoulder and the one of the clouds was as I came out of the storm and under clear skies. If you look at my previous post you will see shots of meal time with friends. These have all become some of my favorits and had I stuck with the same ol', same ol', well I would be without them.

Tip: You are not expected to LOVE every shot, that is why we love digital cameras. The goal here is to end up with 3-10 shots to pick from each week.

'til then
