Shutterbugs and photography-lovin’ friends, welcome to The World Through My Lens, 01.2020. The photos below were taken during January and the first days of February for the 2 photography challenges I am participating in this year. One challenge is the Sunday Stills series hosted by Terri at Second Wind Leisure Perspectives. And the other is #belonglifestyle with my friend Dani and the gals at The Belong Life Style on Instagram and their blogs. You can visit last month’s The World Through My Lens post, here.
The World Through My Lens, 02.2020
My good Sony camera has been out of commission since I did an update to the software that accompanies it. I think I’ve found some information to help me fix the issue. And that is on my agenda for…tomorrow!! The best day to tackle a new project. Start a diet. Begin to exercise.
Therefore, these photos are brought to you through the lens of my Samsung phone.

#BelongLifeStyle February Photo Challenge
My sweet friend Dani posted this graphic on her blog, Family.Love.Inspiration, after sharing her photos for the #BelongLifeStyle January photo challenge. These monthly challenges are sponsored by the gals at Belong Lifestyle. Going to try to participate for February and see how it goes. Here are my images for the first 1/3 of this month.

Was so glad for our mid-week snowfall. And now I am ready for spring. How about you?
Are you participating in any photo challenges this year? If not, come join us for Sunday Stills or #belonglifestyle. Taking photographs has encouraged me to take a second, sometimes even a third look at our world. There’s so much beauty but in the hustle and bustle of each day, it’s easy to let it go unnoticed. When I participate in a photo challenge, I go through my days with the current prompts in mind, looking for something old, or gray or winter white.
I challenge you to try a photo challenge, even for just a month, a week. See if doing so won’t have you looking at the little things in your world with a new, more appreciative eye.
Thank you for spending a few minutes of this shiny new week here with old, gray me!!
Hugs and kisses,
