Reflections on the A to Z Challenge
I spent the month of April consumed by the A to Z Challenge. After thirty days of photo processing, researching, writing and commenting, I'm tired. Don't get me wrong, it was fun and I learned so much from the experience. I also met a lot of talented, creative people and have become truly inspired by several of the sites I discovered. I want to thank some of the participants who supported me the most:
Maui Jungalow A blog about rural and upcountry Maui, not the tourist bureau's version. Bugs, geckos, roads, gardening, housing and current issues.
Otherworldly Romances Different worlds, different rules, different lives, but love remains the same. Author of sci-fi and fantasy romances.
The Bathroom Monologues Something you don't see every day. Updated daily. Author of things inspiring, funny or disturbing. Sometimes all three.
CHICADEROCK From a tiny village in Galicia, NW Spain. Hunts stories. Loves rocks, words and dew drops on cabbage leaves.
Snap out of it Jean! There's beading to be done! Writer / Jewelry Designer / Private Jewelry Investigator.
Garden of Eden Blog Author of 'In Praise of Lilith, Eve & the Serpent in the Garden of Eden & Other Stories'.
My theme was animal photography and one of the most difficult parts of the challenge was finding pictures that coincided with letters of the alphabet. Somehow, I managed to scrape together enough images to meet the criteria. They weren't necessarily my 26 favorite photos and some were definitely better than others but I chose what I had to in order to make the plan work.
I'm hoping to get back to the drawing board, literally, and resume our investigations of the Evergreen area. Attempting to post once a week should seem easier compared to that every day stuff. Below are some of my favorite images that didn't make the A to Z cut. Well, have to run. We're looking into reports of dinosaur tracks being discovered near the town of Morrison, Colorado.
