For this project, I thought up 52 things that I thought would be interesting to shoot or that I wanted to work on. Some of them I have something in mind that I want to shoot when it gets to that week, but a lot of them I’m just going to see where the week takes me.
This weeks theme was upside down, and I had a project in mind for this week. But I needed my husbands help, it rained over the weekend, and we had friends in town. So I had decided I would pick something else. On Sunday afternoon as we were planting seeds in our garden, I stumbled upon this little guy on our rose bushes. It was completely random, and in all my years, I don’t think I have ever seen a baby snail before. This may sound odd, but until I saw him, I kind of thought all snails were the same size. But this one was definitely a smaller, baby snail. My husband lifted up the leaf so that I could get a better view of him crawling at me. When I snapped this picture I had no idea it would be this weeks picture. I was taking it because I found it interesting, a moment I wanted to remember. It wasn’t until after I had tried some other pictures and uploaded them all, that I realized it was an upside down snail and the perfect picture for my project this week.
So there you have it, this week taught me to always keep my mind open to new possibilities. And to trust my instincts, since sometimes when I’m just shooting for my own enjoyment, I stumble into some pretty interesting things.
This is part of an ongoing project, where I will be posting one a week. You can see all my posts for my 2015 Project 52 here.
