Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

on September 4, 2012

I love a good photo challenge.  I frequently think about entering real photo contests.  But my problem is – I end up getting “photographer’s block” (which is similar to writer’s block) when it comes to creating the perfect representation of the selected theme.  Or perhaps that my problem instead – I’m a perfectionist.  The feeling I hate most in the world is realizing after the fact that I-should-have-done-it-this-way.  I have a hard time just letting go.  Perhaps that is why this topic appealed to me so much.  I wish I was more of a free spirit.

Nothing makes me think ‘free spirit’ more than birds.  I love photographing birds.


This is a photo I took several years ago at Virginia Beach.    I have it framed in my bathroom.  It reminds me of the beach, which is one of my favorite places to go!

Canada Goose

I have a special affinity for Canada Geese.  Don’t ask me why – I know they can be quite mean.  But they are very pretty.

I am also trying to participate in FatMumSlim’s Instagram photo-a-day challenge.  It’s not a contest.  You don’t win anything.  But having to post a different theme to your Instagram every day is quite challenging.  And there is plenty of room for interpretation.  Join the fun.  Follow me on Instagram  (katiedaisy921)

Here’s the list:



New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.  (New Photo challenges every Friday).

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS

  1. I tried FatMumSlim’s challenge back in April and failed epically. Perhaps I’ll try again. Definitely committed to getting the Weekly Photo Challenge in hand this week, though.

    The Canada Goose photo is really good. I like the action with wings up and the foot leaving the water.

  3. […] Even after I posted the September calendar for FatMumSlim’s photoaday challenge, I don’t think I actually took one photo […]
