Week 2, 365 Project… Oblique

Wow, week 2 was just awesome. To come up with the theme I spent 20 minutes or so with a dictionary for a little inspiration and was really excited when I randomly flipped to Oblique.

The major benefit of this week was an incident that happened in December, I slipped my L5 S1 disc. Pretty major pain causing regular bouts of indulgent self pity. This week however, for the most part, I’ve actually felt moments of gratitude.

Being the first week back at work and attempting not to sit all day on a rotating range of inappropriate chairs, I’ve been taking walks around the block. There is no way I’d leave my desk to randomly wander around the block if I hadn’t slipped my disc – so I’m grateful for the opportunity to discover the excellent inspiration the city offered up to me for this weeks challenge.

It truly is amazing what you see when you look. And that’s what makes this project so special.

I’m enjoying this project more and more everyday and most mornings I wake up wondering what photo I’ll uncover that day. Who knows maybe this experiment will actually stick!

I love finding out what photos you like the most so check out the ones below and vote for your favourite:

Next week is going to be a doozy picked by Bec (check out her week 2 blog)

ROYGBIV.

In case you’re not familiar with ROYGBIV, it’s the acronym for the sequence of hues in a rainbow according to how the English language divides the visible light spectrum: it’s Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.

I’m not sure if I’ll follow the sequence or mix it up – I’ll let inspiration lead the way :)
