When we started to chat about this month’s central theme – creating memories and cherishing moments – we started talking about the WHY behind our photos.
As bloggers, we are learning the art of the flat-lay, the instagram-able moment, the pinterest-worthy image. We laugh with each other as we move things around to “style” a lovely shot, but these images are fleeting. We aren’t likely to print them out and keep them in an album. They are never going to grace our walls or frames. So often we grab our phones with the intention of immediately sharing the pic and without the intention of keeping it for posterity.
So, we decided that we would commit to taking photos outside of the intention to share on social media. Images that caught our eye. New ways to use our cameras. Different kinds of moments.
And, in a somewhat ironic move, we are sharing them with you today.
