Day 159

Day 159, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Day 3 of Creativity Boot Camp

Today's prompt was multilayered, so I took it literally and we had some more fun with our friends visiting from VA :)

Today's daily thoughts are about "creative buzz-kills" I believe my biggest buzz-kill is myself. It most often comes when I try and compare my self to others talents and abilities. Fortunately I am a pretty positive person and try to pick myself up and there are 2 main reasons:

1. This 365 project has really helped me develop as a photographer. I know that every day won't be an award winning photo, but I am able to try and do new things every day and track my course through out the year.
2. Photography is my outlet. I brings me up so much faster than it lets me down (sometimes I have bad days of feeling inadequate) BUT, photography helps me to maintain April as a person and not just wife and mommy (which are also very important)

So yes, I like everyone have creative buzz kills, but I won't let them bring me down!!!
