I have decided to participate in a photo challenge called Sunday Stills, which I first saw on Deb’s World. I drool over Deb’s photo’s, so look forward to seeing her Sunday Stills post each week. I have no photo skills at all. For me, taking a photo is just a matter of pointing the iphone at a subject, clicking and hoping for the best. About a 18 months ago, I bought myself a new camera, with the intention of teaching myself to understand it, and to improve my photography skills. Unfortunately, the camera has sat on the shelf and hasn’t been used. I told myself it was because I was too busy at the time, but I think I was a bit scared of it. As I’m now in isolation due to Covid-19, and can’t go to work for the time being, I’ve decided that now is the perfect time to get the camera out and have a go. I’m hoping that participating in a weekly photo challenge could be the impetus I need to keep at it, and hopefully, improve my photography skills. Until then my photos will be those taken by an ordinary person with no skills at all.
This prompt had me stumped for a while. Orange doesn’t really feature much in my life. All I could think of was a bowl of oranges, which is a bit too predictable. I decided to take some time out to think about it, and sat down to get a few precious minutes reading. This is when I realised that the book I was reading was orange. Quickly checking my bookshelf, I realised that orange had a huge presence there. I don’t usually post about books here, as I have my book blog, Best Bookish Blog, to do that, but I’m making an exception this time.
