Just One

How hard can it be to take one photo a day? A lot harder than I imagined when I decided to do a 'proper' PAD in early September.
Although I allowed myself a bit of leeway in the first few weeks, posting images that were perhaps a day or two old, I soon decided that if I was going to do it, I was going to do it properly.
But some days are a struggle. I thought it would be easier once the evenings are brighter, but human nature
being what it is, I sometimes leave it until the last minute and then there's a battle to get a shot before the light fades.
This plant is just one of many which I bought with the intention of planting in tubs, pots and window boxes when I
was on holidays last week. But I ended up with a sinus infection so the plants are still waiting to be planted up.

I always manage to take a few shots. But I find that most of them are of the same things in my yard or on the way to work. I keep telling myself that PaD isn't the place for a quailty shot, but more like a visual diary. It helps keep me going!

I think often the desperate, last minute images turn out to be the nicest ones. Maybe we tend to think too much.

Mea culpa :-) Nicely done. I congratulate you on trying to actually take and post every day. It's not easy.

I hear you; I was feeling the same way after 117 days. Mind you, I don't recommend dropping your camera as a circuit breaker, {sigh}. Conversely after a break it's more likely for someone to be rejuvenated, so... swings and roundabouts.

In any case, another good arrangement, having the angle just a bit off the diagonal like that. And again a good use of the background to "punch out" the main subject.
