Remember how I said that taking on some sort of creative project is a good idea during a big move? Well, I took on a creative project during the move this summer and I might have taken it to crazy levels of OCD because it was about the only thing I had any control over for a while there. The project: Color//Colour Lovers, an international photo scavenger hunt hosted by fellow Phone Photography Project instructor Andrea Jenkins and her friend Xanthe Berkeley. It was a fantastic project, and I looked forward to checking out the colorful pictures people all over the world posted to Instagram each day. Most people posted a few here, a handful there and moved on to the next color. Not me: I decided early on that I would post TWELVE pictures per color, and then not post anything else until the next week's color kicked off. I wouldn't post in between my blocks of twelve, because that would MESS EVERYTHING UP.
If this sounds unnecessarily rigid, you would be right. Moving does weirdo things to people's brains.
I almost didn't post additional Disney pictures to Instagram after I found my twelve for #colorcolourpurple week but before #colorcolourorange week started because of this OCD nonsense, but thankfully my more rational self took over and looking back, I don't even know what my problem was. I accidentally mixed up the dates of the last two weeks (#colorcolourorange and #colorcolourblue) and sent myself into a tizzy, but that ended up just fine, too. All's well that ends well.
I love these pictures I took. Seeing them all together makes me happy.
All these little summer stories... I recommend photo projects to everyone. : )
