One of the best parts about expanding my blogging horizons has been the amazing things I've learned about photography and the very cool people and websites I have discovered who challenge me. One of the first ones I found was Simplicity--my life in mostly photographs
and the very first day I went over there I learned a very interesting photographic tool. It's called a Diptych, and you can read Faith's explanation on her site because she put it a lot more eloquently (and with some pretty awesome examples) here. But don't go over there and forget to come back! Her site is pretty amazing.
To put in simply, a diptych is when you put two images side by side to create an artistic statement. They can be harmonious images, contrasting images, thought-provoking, you get the idea. They say something. Well, I'm definitely no artist, but I was inspired by this notion to try something new for yet another fabulous photography website that I suggest (and have suggested before, but just in case you weren't around then) you get to know.
Tara over at Live Every Moment encourages me to do a weekly photo challenge, and I love participating. Her prompts are fun and make me think outside the box. Plus I love her beautiful photos and helpful explanations! This week the challenge is "a different view/perspective" and I was just going to link up my self-portrait from the other day because that was a unique photographic perspective for me, but then a chance to be even more creative occured and although it was a bit crazy, I went with it.
Em was happily playing with the box Jax's new booster carseat came in (getting ready to put her in his big boy/big girl carseat very soon!) and I was getting some cute shots. Jax calls this box their "clubhouse"--guess who's been watching a bit too much Disney Channel?
