At the beginning of the year, I joined in with Helena's "Look Up//Look Down" photography meme. I'm really glad I did because it's a great reminder to document the everyday. Almost half of my up//down photos, including this week's entries, have been taken in the backyard. The up photo is the newly blossoming pear tree and the down photo shows the detritus from putting in the new spring vegetable garden. I like how both show that the beginning of spring is more full of twigs and bare branches than green leaves and flowers. That will come later.
I think it will be really interesting to look back on all these pictures of my back yard years from now. I am learning the visual potential of a limited subject matter. Thanks Helena!
If you've participated in a long term photograph meme, what have you learned from the experience?
